Children’s Prescription Sunglasses

Most adults buy themselves good quality sunglasses as they are aware of the damage the sun can do to the eyes. It’s a worry though that the same care and attention isn’t generally given to children’s sunglasses. They’re still exposed to the same harmful rays that can damage our eyes long term, yet they are mostly bought inexpensive sunglasses that offer very little protection, or if they are really unlucky wear no sunglasses at all. It’s just as important to buy children sunglasses that contain good quality lenses with full 400UV protection. They can be a little more expensive at around £10-£20 but are very worthwhile in the long run.

Prescription Lenses for Cycling Goggles Inserts

I was amazed to hear from a customer yesterday that one of the so called “Economy” high street opticians quoted him £95 to put prescription lenses into his cycling goggles. It wasn’t that he has a strong prescription that bumped up the cost, this was for very basic lenses with a low prescription. You can only imagine how pleased he was when I quoted £35 for the exact same thing. I’ve ordered them today for him (Thursday), and he’ll have them back by post either Saturday or Monday latest. Need I say more…

Hurray! It’s time for Sunglasses again

We’re well into the new year now, spring is just around the corner, so we’re thinking about holidays again. We’ve just booked to go to Turkey and I can’t wait. We’ve ordered 2 new carry holdalls for the flight to keep the cost of baggage down, and my new passport has already arrived. I’m amazed that it only took 2 weeks from applying and paying online until delivery yesterday. They’ve obviously got their act together this year at the passport office. I must admit I half was expecting the stress and panic of last years passport office fiasco.

So I’m sorted, how about you. have you got your glasses sorted, or at least started thinking about them. Do you need a spare pair to take in case of emergencies, or some new sunglasses. You’d be surprised how many people leave it until a week before they’re due to go then hope to get their glasses in time for their holiday.

I’d always say order them as early as you can so you won’t be disappointed if they can’t be made in time. They’re for all year round wear really, so it makes sense to order now in time for spring.

Just give me a call on 01253 795523 or 07767 168822 and I’ll be happy to help.

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.
