Why are we different

Advanced technology allows us to customise your lenses to give enhanced clarity and comfort.

Varilux X series App

The Varilux X series App will measure the postural and behavioural components of your patients, resulting in their Near Vision Behaviour measurement, which helps position and shape a wearer’s own vision volume where and how they need it.

Sunwear Lenses

Essilor Crizal Sapphire UV

Crizal Sapphire is a stack of lens enhancing layers designed to sit on the front and back of the lens. Together, the layers work to protect the wearer’s eyes from UV light, deliver lens protection and optimal vision.

All Crizal Saphire lenses come with a 2 years scratch free guarantee

Water Repellency

Microscopic gaps in the coating are filled with Hydrophobic (water repellent) molecules. Therefore, smoothing the surface of the lens, which allows water droplets to roll from the lens surface without leaving a trace.

Dust Repellency

An anti-static layer prevents positive dust particles sitting on the lens.

Scratch Resistance

Lenses are protected by a scratch resistant booster, a nano millimetre layer located behind the AR layer. The scratch resistant booster layer is designed to gradually increases in hardness

Smudge Repellency

Smudges appear on lenses due to uneven nano molecules found on the surface of coatings. By smoothing fluorinated molecules into a consistent pattern Crizal Forte coatings offer a superior smudge repellence.

Crizal Drive is a new premium anti-reflective coating that offers impeccable clarity of vision.

Thanks to the coating performance reflections are up to 90% less when driving at night. We recommend this lens for patients with a lifestyle that involves frequent driving as it has 90%less reflections when driving at night.
