Product features

  • Blue Light Filter Icon

    Blue Light Filter

    Our Blue Light Filter — available for prescription and non-prescription lenses — blocks high-energy blue light emitted from digital screens, reducing light scatter. It'll help your eyes feel more focused and comfortable during a long day of emails and video calls.

  • Varifocal glasses icon

    Varifocal glasses

    Varifocal glasses have multiple prescriptions in one lens, for near and distance vision correction. Gone are the days of switching frames! We source ours from one of the best suppliers in the business.

  • Ultra Thin Lenses icon

    Ultra Thin Lenses

    Our Ultra Thin Lenses have a 1.74 index — they're the thinnest you're going to find. Perfect for high prescriptions above +/-4 dioptres, they're also just £50 on top of the price of any frame — that's a high-tech lens, for a tiny price.

  • Anti-reflection coating icon

    Anti-reflection coating

    Our anti-reflection coating eliminates reflected glare, with over 99% of visible light passing through the lenses — meaning they're a joy to see through. People looking at you will get a nice view of your eyes, too.

  • Scratch-resistant coating icon

    Scratch-resistant coating

    Scratched lenses are no fun, which is why all our lenses have a scratch-resistant coating included. Please still keep them in their case when you're not wearing them though: they're tough, but not indestructible.

  • UV protection icon

    UV protection

    All our optical and sunglass lenses contain UV A and UV B filters to block 100% of harmful UV rays, meeting the EU standards of protection. Now, where's the beach?

  • Sunlight filters icon

    Sunlight filters

    According to EU standards, sun glare protection is categorised from 0-4, with 0 being the lightest and 4 the darkest. The majority of our standard sunglass lenses are category 3, which provides enough protection for everyday use.
