Orders & Delivery
How long will it take for me to receive my prescription spectacles?
After your spectacles have been made by our lab technicians and pass quality control, they are dispatched and take on average between 10 days to 4 weeks. This can vary depending on the complexity of the prescription and frame availability
Can I order frames with no prescription in them
Yes. Simply select desired frame and select 'Buy frame only' in options then proceed to checkout. You have the option on our prescription page to select for frame only or frame and prescription lenses.
What if my frame needs adjustment
Before we despatch to you all frames are inspected, aligned with the correct frame fold and the prescription verified with the correct pupillary distance. If minor adjustments such as tightening and adjusting nosepads/loose arms you could take them to your optician or we will be happy to rectify any adjustments
Do you sell prescription sunglasses and tinted lenses
Yes we have a variety of tints with the standard level of 15-20% Light Transmittance for those who desire tinted lenses to be used indoors. Or perhaps you prefer a sunspec tint to be incorporated to your prescription lenses.
Alternatively, why not try PHOTOCHROMIC lenses. There are crystals embedded on the lens surface that react to the amount of sunlight the lens is exposed to. When outdoors they will darken and adapt to mid and bright sunlight, indoors they will react to become clear lenses. The brighter it is the darker they will be. They are also known as anti-fatique lenses and provide 100% UV protection.
Do you offers special lens treatments
Yes indeed. We can offer an anti-reflection (AR) or a Multi anti-reflection coating (MAR). The MAR is an advanced multi-purpose coating offering hydrophobic, oleophobic and smudge-repellant properties.
The following are the multitude of advantages to including this lens treatment as a lens option;
♦Reduced reflections and dazzling glare against oncoming traffic in night time driving
♦Reduced glare against VDU screens and artificial lighting, allowing comfortable vision when spent in front of VDU's for a long duration
♦Reduced reflections that hit the lens surface improving the cosmetic appearance due to increased light transmission
♦Provides a tougher anti-scratch protective layer
♦Reduced power ring effect with mid to high prescriptions and creates a 'thinning effect' on the lens
♦When used in conjunction with Photochromic lenses; increases the reaction rate allowing them to darken more quickly and also increases fade-back time changing the lenses to clear when indoors more rapidly
Can I use my contact lens specification
Afraid not. The contact lens specification differs to the spectacle prescription. The contact lens is an optical device that lies directly on the cornea, whereas the spectacle lens is further away from the eye; the prescription must be compensated for this
