The first thing that people look at when speaking to you is your eyes. A spectacle frame is much more than a device to merely hold your lenses. It is an expression of who you are. We understand that choosing a spectacle frame is an important decision for you and one that you will live with on a daily basis for several years.
While we appreciate the importance of fashionable frames, we also ensure that the frame and lens choices are customised to the individual. We also understand that the fit and performance of your spectacles is of vital importance to your comfort and ease of wear. Hence, we will advise you of the suitability of a frame based on your particular prescription and your face shape.
Some types of eyewear are:
- Fashion frames in metal or plastics;
- Rimless frames or half rimless frames;
- Sports specific eyewear ;
- Protective eyewear;
- Swimming goggles;
- Dive masks;
- Low vision; and
- Specific purpose at your request.
Lens Technology and Design
With hundreds of lens designs available and more appearing every day it is imperative that we fully understand the advantages and disadvantages of these new technologies. We personally trial all of the lens designs that we use.
Some of the types of lens design are:
- Computer based lenses;
- Shooting lens and spectacle design;
- Prismatic prescriptions;
- Low vision specific designs;
- High Index thin lens technology; and
- Transition photochromics.
We have our own on site lens finishing lab utilising the latest computer driven equipment enabling us to produce spectacles of outstanding accuracy and quality.
Some prescriptions cannot be made in a single lens form. Sometimes it is necessary to make a Franklin bifocal, which is created by fitting four different lenses together to make a pair. In the photos below you will see how it is done. Now almost a lost “art”.
