Glasses, Spectacles & Eyewear
Your glasses are made up of: Frames + Lenses
At Alfred Jay Opticians, we have a wide selection of glasses and frames to suit your style.
Allow our experienced team to help you create the perfect look with the right glasses for you.
Complete your look with a pair of fashionable glasses and frames for each special occasion.
The lenses you have in your glasses are as important as the frames that hold them.
There are 3 main types of lenses that you could have to suit your prescription:
- Single Vision
- Bi-Focal, and
- Varifocal Lenses
Depending on your needs and preferences, we can provide a range of spectacle lenses – from standard plastic lenses, to high index, thinner, lighter lenses.
Plastic lenses are the most commonly used as they can be half the weight of glass lenses and also almost unbreakable, allowing comfort and safety. Plastic lenses are also easier to scratch and thicker than their equivalent, glass lenses.
Optional extras such as anti-glare coatings to help with VDUs and night driving, and special tints to help with the sun, light sensitivity, concentration or task-specific needs, can be added to suit your needs.
As part of your eye examination, we will advise you on the best options for you.
Sunglasses do for the eyes what sun cream does for the skin – i.e. protects from damage.
Alfred Jay Opticians offer a comprehensive range of sunglasses – from timeless, classic styles to retro and modern designs.
Our collection of sunglasses include Rayban, Bolle, Serengeti and Maui Jim with polarising, multi-coated lenses with colour enhancers and mirrored surfaces for driving, recreation or sports.
Alfred Jay Opticians have a fantastic range of children’s frames – and standard lenses are free under the NHS.
We also have an exclusive range sunglasses for babies and children by Bollé, Australian brand Baby Banz and Cebe.
