Lens Options

When choosing your lenses you should be aware of 4 main lens types

  • Single Vision - a lens with a single prescription across the entire area providing a single correction.  Suitable for near or distance use. From £39

  • Lifestyle - a lens which provides a smooth transition from near to intermediate correction.  These lenses have no visible segment line and can provide correction for close work and a bit further ahead.  Also called Occupational, Computer, or Enhanced Reading lenses. From £119

  • Bifocal - a lens where the upper part corrects for distance, and the lower part corrects for near.  A visible segment line separates the 2 prescriptions.  From £119

  • Varifocal - a lens which provides a smooth transition from distance to near correction.  These lenses have no visible segment line and can provide correction at all distances, including intermediate.  Also called Progressive or Multi-focal lenses.  Learn more  From £179

Depending on your personal preferences and lifestyle you may also benefit from some of our lens options.


  • Thin and light lenses - for those with a higher prescription the use of high index materials can provide an improved appearance and increased comfort. Options from +£30

  • Anti-reflection coating - reduces reflections from the surface of normal lenses providing greater visual clarity, and also reduces the reflections of oncoming headlights and other artificial lights.  Learn more  Included on all lifestyle and varifocal lenses, options on single vision and bifocal from +£30

  • Xperio Sun Tints - protect your eyes against harmful UVA and UVB rays, bright sunlight and glare, and ensure your eye health and vision is well protected every time you put on your sunglasses.  Learn more Options from +£20

  • Transition lenses - lenses which are clear in artificial light but become gradually tinted outdoors. They are excellent for people who do not want to change spectacles when the sun comes out. Learn more Options from +£70
