Don’t worry if you are in any way unsure about how to choose which lenses are the right ones for you. I’ll always advise you over the phone regarding which lenses are best suited to your own individual prescription.

All you need to do is give me an idea of what you would like, transitions, thinner lighter lenses or a particular colour tint etc. I’ll always give honest advise, in fact on several occasions I’ve suggested using standard lenses when people have asked for thinner because they’ve had them before. Often people have been sold thinner lenses unnecessarily just to up the order value. I never do this, I’ll advise you best on what you actually need.

When you call me (Catherine) on 01253 795 523 or 07767 168 822, I’ll explain everything to you.

If you want any specific lenses that aren’t listed on the price list, just give me a call and I’ll be able to give you a price. Below is a simple guide to help work out the cost of the new lenses.

Do you need standard lenses, thin lenses or extra thin lenses- and what’s the difference?

Generally speaking the stronger your prescription the thicker and heavier the lenses will be. Therefore standard lenses with a strong prescription could be very thick and unsightly.

Looking at your optical prescription can give you a basic guide to choosing your lenses. Look at the Sphere box (sph) on your prescription.




WOWFirst time of using this service having been quoted over £400 by a well known high street chain of optical bandits! The service provided by Catherine is second to none she kept in touch and the final product was as good as any top class optical service.

The price is very good and very much worth every penny. Well done Catherine in providing this service and may you put the high street chains of optical services to shame and in receivership!!

We Recommend That You Choose

Tick pngA standard lens (1.5) if your prescription sphere (sph) value is les than 3.50 (plus or minus) – not suitable for rimless frames

Tick pngA thin lens (1.6) if your prescription sph value is between 3.50 and 6.00 (plus or minus) – suitable for all frames including rimless

Tick pngAn extra thin lens (1.67) if your prescription sph value is 6.00 or over (plus or minus) – suitable for all frames including rimless

Tick pngSuper thin lens (1.74) if your prescription sph value is 8.00 or over (plus or minus) – Note: not all lenses are available in 1.74 – not always suitable for rimless frames.

Rimless Frames
Standard 1.5 lenses are not a good choice for any rimless frames for two reasons. Firstly, they’re not very durable so are likely to crack where the holes are drilled to fit the rimless frame. Secondly, as part of the glazing process, the lenses have to be cut a little thicker than for standard lenses. This makes the lenses look thicker and adds to the weight.

For these reasons 1.6 1.67 or Polycarbonate lenses are recommended for rimless frames. These lenses are thinner and lighter, but also much stronger so a much better choice for durability.

1.74 are occasionally unsuitable for rimless frames as they are very brittle and less flexible than other lenses. In this instance we would look at the frame first to advise whether 1.67 or the 1.74 would be the most suitable lenses for the frame.

Please note: As rimless glazing is more technical and takes quite a bit longer to process than full or half rim frames, the factory charge me £10 extra to glaze any rimless frames. This needs to be added to the cost when rimless frames are being sent for new lenses.
