not all lenses are the same
It's common to consider all spectacle lenses as being equal, but this is certainly not the case, especially where coating durability, manufacturing process and lens characteristics are concerned. As with most things in life - with lenses, you really do get what you pay for . . .

the toughest coatings

With most lenses now being made from resin not glass, it's important to protect your investment with a good quality coating.
Our Premium lenses feature the most advanced multi-layer coatings currently available that include: Broadband Anti-reflection, scratch and abrasion resistance, oleophobic (grease repellent), hydrophobic (water resistant) and wipe-clean coatings. 

Better clarity, more durable, easier to clean and up to a 3 Year Warranty

the thinnest lenses

No one should have to put up with thick, unsightly lenses anymore! Most of our lens options are available in high-index materials that are up to 40% thinner with a far flatter appearance; your lenses are lighter, look nicer and provide improved peripheral vision.

better peripheral vision

With stronger prescriptions or higher degrees of astigmatism (irregular cornea surface), peripheral vision can be an real issue. We offer a wide range of specially manufactured bi-aspheric lenses that compensate for your prescription by subtly altering the power across the lens surface in all directions.

Normal Lenses


glare reduction for drivers

Don't you just hate the glare from oncoming headlights?

We now offer a range of highly specialised driving lenses, featuring the latest technology that disrupts and deflects glare.

Feed back from wearers has been quite astonishing.

Available in distance only or varifocal options.

colour change lenses

A popular compromise instead separate prescription sunglasses are our lenses that constantly react to the lighting conditions around you. Available as an option on most of our lenses, you can choose between our regular or extra dark reaction options and select from up to seven different colours; so the lenses match your frame colour, when darkened.

prescription sun protection

On the water, on the slops, in the air or on the cycle path? Whatever your activity we have a lens for it.

Many of our prescription lenses are also available with a specialist tint, polarising filter or mirror coating designed for specific activities.

MiyoSmart myopia control

MiyoSmart is a new innovative spectacle lens developed by Hoya. Based on a two-year clinical trial results, MiyoSmart has been proven to curb myopia progression in children on average by 60% with its award-winning D.I.M.S. (Defocus Incorporated Multiple Segments) technology.

state-of-the-art manufacturing

Many of our lenses are now manufactured using advanced digital milling techniques rather than surfacing or cast moulding. This is of particular relevance for our personalised varifocal lenses where the technology allows each lens to be uniquely designed and manufactured for each patient.

see everything, everywhere

Remember bifocals? with the little piece in the bottom of the lens. Varifocals work in a similar way; you look down to read. However, unlike bifocals, there's no visible segment and you benefit from some middle distance vision as you look down; an ideal option for those who would rather wear just one pair of glasses.

wider is always better

Not all varifocal lenses are the same. Older cast-moulded lenses may be cheaper but they pale into comparison when compared to the latest, personalised, digitally milled varifocals.

You'll experience wider fields of vision, more natural, balanced vision and you'll find them far easier to get used to.

visual modelling

When you order a pair of personalised varifocals from us you'll notice we take a lot more measurements than you've probably been used to. This extra information is used to build up a virtual model of your visual system to enable the design and manufacture of lenses that are unique to you.

multi-task lenses

It's quite common to find your reading glasses are too strong for tasks at arms length, like computer work, meetings, craft work, cooking, DIY or gardening. Fortunately there's a solution . . .

it all starts with visual task analysis

When considering a multi-task lens, we'll ask quite a few questions about your everyday activities and working environment.
This helps us determine which type of multi-task lens will offer you the solution for work and everyday activities.

comfortable middle distance clarity

Our multi-task lenses are a distant relative to varifocals except, the upper distance vision zone is replaced with your middle distance prescription. This provides you with a wide field of vision for screen work and other tasks and the extra reading boost when you look down for close up tasks.

our best ever multi-task lens

It is often clear, after a discussion with you, that more than just normal is required. Our iD Workstyle 3 mulit-task lens from Hoya is personalised to your specific vision requirements which means you'll get the very best indoor vision tailored to your individual working and wearing conditions.
