What is a prescription?

A prescription is a set of numbers resulting from your eye check given to you by the optometrist who carried out the eye examination. The optometrist should provide you with a prescription after the eye examination.

The prescription will show whether you are long sighted-short sighted or have perfect vision. You may also need glasses to relieve eye strain from using digital devices.

Understanding your prescription

The prescription can be difficult to understand and we are happy to explain this over the phone with you by telephoning 07507 296556.

Lenses and Coatings

Lens Types
Single vision – this means you either wear glasses for distance vision to be able to see clearly OR you wear them for near such as reading, computer or close work, DIY, sewing etc.

Thin and thinner lenses
Depending on your prescription you make want thinner lenses and we can advise on this once we receive your order.

Bifocals and Varifocals
Bifocals lenses which have a visible line provide a convenient way to combine distance and near in one lens.
Varifocals are lenses have NO visible line and enable you to see clear in the distance, near and everything in between.

Types of Coatings
Scratch resistant- plastic lenses are lighter but can scratch easily. We recommend scratch resistant coating to protect against damage and prolong lens life.

Anti-Reflective
This type of coating which almost eliminates distracting reflections off the lens surface. This is recommended for computer users and night driving. This type of coating also looks cosmetically better and lenses appear thinner.

Transitions or Photochromic
These lenses react to the sunlight and become clear indoors, giving the appearance of sunglasses when outside and protecting the eyes from Ultra violet exposure.
