There’s still plenty of time to get new lenses in time for Christmas

If you’re  thinking about getting new lenses into one of your frames before Christmas, they need to be ordered soon. There’s no rush for single vision lenses as they take just a few days to process, but varifocal lenses take a couple of weeks so need ordering soon to avoid disappointment.

Single vision lenses start at just £25 and varifocal lenses are available from £85

We reglaze lots of designer sunglasses with prescription lenses from just £45. All of our sunglass lenses come with full 400UV protection and scratch protection. Even though it’s winter weather now, we are still getting lots of orders for sunglass lenses as they help protect against the glare of the low  and very dazzling winter sun. My eyes are quite light sensitive so I wear sunglasses all year round for driving, and so do many others.

So, if you have a winter holiday coming up, don’t forget to upgrade your sunglasses to your latest prescription.

If anyone has any queries about new lenses, just give me a call on 01253 795523 and I’ll be only too happy to help.

Anti-Blue Light Blocking Glasses Lenses for Computer Users

 

Does all this sound familiar?

After spending hours in front of a computer screen at work, you go on to spend yet more hours using other electronic devices at home. You often have headaches, fatigue, burning, watering, irritable or reddened eyes, flickering images, and intermittent short sightedness. You’re not alone. These symptoms have become so common; they even have a name, (CVS) Computer Vision Syndrome.
With the introduction of so many electronic devices, our eyes are put under enormous pressure as they are exposed to harmful light spectrums. Few people realise that our eyes are also exposed to harmful high-energy blue light and UV rays at home as well as at work.
LCD or LED Computer and TV screens, smart phones, tablets, and Fluorescent, CFL and LED bulbs all have a high blue spectral emission. Essentially, if you have any of the electronic devices now considered a necessary part of our everyday lives, you’re more than likely already being affected by the blue light in more ways than you realise.
We already know to take regular breaks from the screen. Staring at a screen for hours at a time slows down the blink reflex, causing eyes to feel dry. Use of eye drops to try to relieve dryness and eye tiredness can help, but only for a few minutes. Drops are not a long term solution. So what is the solution…..

I no longer have tired eyes after a days work, and neither do my friends who now wear my new
Anti-Blue Light Blocking Lenses.

 

Our new, inexpensive Anti-Blue Light Lenses are scientifically proven and block out 100% of harmful Blue Light.
They are infused with the precise balance of ocular lens pigment and melanin to defend your eyes against harmful blue light spectrums both indoors and out. Further, such lenses effectively soothe tired, strained eyes and ward off computer vision syndrome (CVS) for those who use computers and play games frequently. Objects and text will also appear clearer, sharper and better defined as a result of wearing blue-filtering lenses. They look just like normal lenses so won’t look out of place in any situation.

Don’t confuse them with standard Anti-Reflective coated lenses which just cut down on everyday glare. These are in a whole different league and are specifically designed to block the harmful blue light which a normal Anti-Reflective coating won’t do.

 

Thinner Anti-Blue Light Prescription
Lenses are also available

Anti-Blue Light Blocking Lenses are available as non-prescription for people who need no optical correction, but need to protect their eyes from harmful blue light.
They are also available as single vision prescription lenses for people who need optical correction, and normally need spectacles to see clearly. They are available as standard 1.50 thickness, and 1.60 thinner/lighter lenses for people with stronger prescriptions with thicker lenses. Unfortunately, they are not available as varifocal/bifocal lenses yet.

Other features of Anti-Blue Light Blocking Lenses are:

· Available as prescription or non-prescription lenses. Therefore they can be used for TV, gaming etc, as well as for the computer, laptops, tablets and smart phones even if prescription lenses are needed.
· Screens out 100% of the harmful Blue-violet light, keeping the eyes completely protected, relaxed, and comfortable as eye-strain is being eased.
· Permits only the beneficial light to pass through
· Maintains clear vision through the lens
· Does not alter colour perception, offering a more natural colour perception
· Reduces stress on eyes caused by constant refocusing
· Comes with the additional properties of anti-static, scratch resistance, anti-reflection and super hydrophobic coating
· All Anti-Blue Lenses include a UV-400 filter to protect fully against harmful UVA and UVB rays
· Prescription lenses are available as standard 1.5 and thinner/lighter 1.6 lenses

Anti-Blue Light Blocking Lenses Prices
(Scroll down to the bottom for full frame and lenses details)
Non prescription… 1.5 Standard thickness …£75
Prescription ……….1.5 Standard thickness …£85
Prescription ……… 1.60 Thinner/Lighter…..£105

 

The lenses can be glazed into a brand new frame, or can be put into one of your own favourite frames. We often have a frame we’d like to keep wearing, so the fact that it also keeps the cost down is a welcome bonus. Most glasses wearers have previous frames sat in a drawer collecting dust. Often these frames have cost a lot of money, are still in very good condition, so it’s a shame not to use them again.

 

What about the long-term effects of exposure to Blue light?

Worryingly, long-term effects of blue light are only now becoming apparent. Many clinical trials (1), (2) confirm that over-exposure to blue-light can silently ravage the photo-receptor cells within the eyes’ retinas over the course of years and can cause a host of vision-destroying diseases including premature and age-related macula degeneration(AMD). The harmful blue light causes gradual oxidation and deterioration of the macula and leaves eyes more susceptible to disease.
It’s important to realize that one of the keys to controlling the risk factors for any disease including AMD is efficient patient education. By wearing Anti-Blue Lenses to filter out 100% of blue light, maintaining a healthy, and active lifestyle, sight-stealing conditions like macula degeneration can be avoided and vision can be preserved into old age.
So why choose our Anti-Blue Lenses?
When I heard about the amount of damage blue light can do to your eyes, my first thought was that I really needed to buy some for myself. I spend at least 6 hours a day working in front of a computer screen. Add to that, my smart phone that I always use to speak to customers, the TV, and my iPad that I often read in bed. That’s a lot of time in front of the electronic devices that are damaging my eyes long term. When my eyes were twitching, and felt dry and tired, I simply put it down to needing more sleep, and I certainly don’t want to end up blind or partially sighted with Age Related Macula Degeneration (AMD) when I’m older.
Having worked for over 17 years in the optical industry myself, I know the importance of looking after your vision. Just as important is buying top quality lenses as there are a lot of very poor quality lenses out there. Poor lenses nearly always means poor vision.

Where to look first…

I looked on Amazon and other websites to see what kind of glasses were available to help cut out the blue light.
I found Gunnar glasses that appeared to do the trick, but not really any other lenses that I might consider using myself. Gunnars certainly reduce blue light, and eye strain, which is what I wanted, but I didn’t particularly like any of the styles. If I’m wearing glasses at the office all day, I want to feel happy with the frame as well as the lenses. I also need prescription lenses. Gunnar supply prescription lenses, but firstly, and very importantly I noticed that they have a no returns or exchanges policy on prescription glasses. I wasn’t happy about this in case they were wrong. I also didn’t want to pay shipping costs from America. Gamma Ray computer glasses also looked good, but being an American company, shipping was once again too expensive.
So even though Gunnars and Gamma Ray sound very good, they weren’t exactly what I was looking for. Now what do I do?
Back to the internet. I found lots of cheap and nasty so called blue light reducing computer glasses on the internet from as little as £9.95 When I looked into them in more detail, the reviews were terrible. The frames were flimsy and very poor, the anti glare sounded to be of such poor quality it would be a waste of time having it, and they only reduced a very small amount of blue light. My eyes are very valuable to me. I wanted 100% protection against blue light not just 35% as some were offering. I could buy these glasses in bulk for as little as £2 a pair from China. I value my eyes too much to even consider using anything of this quality, and doubt they’d be any good anyway.
Cheap, poor quality glasses are never a good idea, but seemed to be the only option left. So now what?

The obvious answer to me was to create my own brand of Blue Light Reducing Glasses for computer work and games.

With my online glasses reglazing company Reglazeglasses4u.co.uk already supplying prescription lenses, my first job was to search for top quality blue light reducing lenses that are available as prescription and non prescription lenses, but very importantly screens out 100% of the blue light. Many of the lenses offered supposedly to protect against blue light only blocked out a very small amount, as low as 8% in some cases.

There are a few companies making their version of the lenses, and the one I finally settled on, supplied by one of the worlds leading lenses suppliers, ticked every box and excels in all the qualities I was looking for including blocking 100% of blue light.

Secondly, I wanted to offer a good choice of top quality frames that people would feel happy to wear at work all day. I needed to find a range of optical quality, stylish, comfortable but durable frames suitable for prescription and non- prescription lenses. Or, to keep the cost down the lenses can be reglazed into one of your own frames so long as it is still in good condition.

I looked at many ranges and decided to use Emporium’s Carducci Italian Designer frames. To keep costs down I offer these frames at half the price they sell for on the high street. I’ve used these frame suppliers for many years, and know them to be of the highest quality. They are available to be seen in most high street opticians shops, and the frames alone are usually priced around £79.95-£159.95

So…How much will they cost me?

Carducci Italian designer Frames from £49.95 to £79.95

Anti-Blue Light Lenses
Non prescription… 1.5 Standard thickness …£75
Prescription ……….1.5 Standard thickness …£85
Prescription ……… 1.60 Thinner/Lighter…..£105

 

If Reglazing your own frame with any of our lenses including Anti-Blue lenses, the same prices apply as there is no extra reglazing charge.
All rimless frames need the 1.60 lenses as they are stronger. Standard lenses are more brittle and are likely to crack or break.
