We're the sunglass specialists

Finally, you can enjoy prescription sunglasses without limitations. Thanks to advanced lens technology, we can manufacture prescription lenses to suit a wide range of prescription requirements. This same technology also enables you to select almost any sunglass frame. That means no more compromise on style and the ability to choose from top designer brands. The benefits of sunglass technology also mean you do not need to compromise your lifestyle - with prescription lenses, the outdoors is yours to enjoy.

Prescription Sunglasses

When you are outdoors, your eyes need protection from the sun, just like skin. Even spending a moderate amount of time in the summer sun without appropriate eye protection can be dangerous to your vision. That’s why all of our prescription sunglasses screen out 99.9% of harmful UV radiation.

If you like to live an active lifestyle then consider prescription sunglasses as an essential addition to your favourite activities. We have access to sunglass frames and lenses that are optimal for your active lifestyle. Come and ask us how we can help provide you with a sunglass option for sports.

Adapting to Progressive Lenses - First Time Wearers

Progressive lenses offer you clear vision at distance, intermediate and near. We always explain to first time progressive wearers that it can take some time to adjust to the lenses. This is because of the peripheral compensation which occurs in order to obtain vision at all three distance points.

Here are some guidelines to help you through the adaption process:

  • Ensure they are fitting well - high on your nose and close to your eyes
  • Keep your new glasses on -  do not swap between your old and new pairs
  • Turn your whole head - follow the tip of your nose
  • When focussing on an object move your head up and down to find a head position where the object is clear
  • Trust that knowing where to position your head will soon become second nature
  • When walking down stairs tuck your chin in and look through the top of your lenses

For most people, adapting to new progressive lenses will only take a day or two but it may take a few weeks for others. If you have been wearing your glasses for more than two weeks and are still experiencing some discomfort, please come back and see us to discuss the situation further.


We supply a two year warranty against manufacturing defaults for all optical lenses purchased. The warranty begins from the original date of purchase, and covers lens defects which occur under normal wearing conditions. If you ever need your glasses assessed, adjusted, or cleaned please feel free to come see us at any time. We also encourage you to come in for a ‘warrant of fitness’ check, one year after purchase, to ensure your spectacles are in good order.
