Better Vision & Lighter Lenses

As your optical prescription increases, there is always a corresponding increase in thickness and weight.  Thick lenses can be unsightly but also restrict your choice of frames.  With advances in lens materials and manufacturing, it’s now possible to have lenses that are up to 50% thinner and nearly 40% lighter in weight compared to standard plastic lenses.

Your choice of frame will also affect the thickness of the lenses.  Our dispensing opticians will help you choose a frame that provides the thinnest lens whilst making you look amazing.

 

At our practices we use a 3D lens tracing system that calculates the exact dimensions of your chosen frame.  Then, our dispensers enter the measurement of your eye position within the frame into a computer program that determines the thickness of a variety lenses.  In this way, you can be sure that your getting the thinnest lenses without getting any unpleasant surprises when you collect them!
