STEP 1: YOUR LENSES

Lens Type

With regard to lens type, your optometrist will typically advise on which you need when they give you a prescription. Simply select the appropriate option during the checkout process. The choices included are:

Distance

These are for distance and everyday tasks. Some people’s prescriptions will mean they need both distance and reading glasses.

Reading

These are for anybody whose prescription has a near add, and need glasses for close work, so mostly need help reading small print, your phone, or focusing on closer objects, this is the option for you. Some people do need both reading and distance lenses in their glasses.

Computer

These are for anybody whose prescription has an intermediate add, and needs assistance with mid-range or intermediate distances – typically objects at arm’s length, like your tablet or computer screen.

Varifocal

Varifocals provide three functions in one. The upper lens takes care of focusing in the distance, and the lower area takes care of focusing close up, and they blend seamlessly in the middle for focusing at intermediate distances. Varifocals can save you having to buy reading, computer, and distance glasses separately. You might also know them as progressive lenses.

Plano

The optical language is “plano”, and it just means we fit the glasses with the same exact material as prescription lenses, just without the prescription. This is for anybody that doesn’t actually need glasses to see, but feels like that shouldn’t stop them missing out on accessorising.

No Lenses

Selecting this option means you’ll receive the glasses frame with only a temporary place-holder material fitted instead of the lenses, so you can have your lenses glazed at another opticians.
