In recent years there have been major changes in spectacle lens technology, all designed to improve your vision and enhance your optical experience. It is important that your lenses compliment your lifestyle as well as your individual visual requirements. With there being so many lens combinations now available, the expert advice that you will receive at Mersey Eyecare will go a long way to help you make the correct choice when it comes to your new lenses.

We are able to show you how you will look in the frame of your choice, including the lenses. This is particularly useful for higher optical prescriptions where thinner lenses would be advised to reduce depth and weight. How great is that?

As previously mentioned lens technology has advanced rapidly over recent times and at Mersey Eyecare you will be advised on, and have access to the latest developments in:

  1. Varifocal Lenses – (the modern alternative to bifocal lenses – which allow you to see short and long distances with just one lens – without the line). They are normally advised for people over the age of 40 when separate distance and near prescriptions are required.
  2. High Index Lenses – In the past patients who have a more complex prescription have had to put up with thicker and heavier lenses in their spectacles. Thankfully, today’s advances means the super thin and light weight Hi-index lenses can make your eyewear look great and feel more comfortable.
  3. Transitions – They are fast acting variable tinted lenses which darken when exposed to sunlight. Indoors they are clear, but outside they rapidly darken effectively changing them into conventional sunglasses. Transitions are available in grey or brown tints and offer 100% protection against damaging UV light.
  4. Lens Coatings – These are advised to reduce annoying reflections, improve the appearance of your spectacles and most importantly, enhance you vision. More recent advances in technology now mean you can get the added benefit of anti-scratch, anti-dust, as well as water, dirt and grease repellent coatings, making your lenses more durable and a lot easier to clean. This is some really A class stuff, and you know it!

This wide variety of top class eyewear and equipment allows us to proudly claim that we offer the best experience to our clients, every time.
