UV PROTECTION

Protection from UV rays is a must. We all take care in putting sun block on face and body, but somehow fail to take the correct precautions when it comes to our eyes. UV is an invisible form of radiation and the damage to eyes builds up over time. There are 3 different types of UV radiation:

UVA: The least harmful of the three and most penetrative. Over exposure to UVA can cause certain types of cataract and have been linked with macular degeneration.

UVB: This is the most damaging type of UV for the eye. Exposure to UVB causes sunburn and over exposure to the eye can cause pingueculae, pterygia and snow blindness.

UVC: This is the strongest form of UV and fortunately the atmosphere’s ozone layer blocks virtually all UVC rays.

But this also means depletion of the ozone layer potentially could allow high-energy UVC rays to reach the earth’s surface and cause serious UV-related health problems

All Sunglasses will provide 100% UV protection and most clear glasses and certain Contact lenses will to a degree give protection.

Brilliant optician and friendly receptionists.

Tailor Made Spectacles

Spectacles made especially for you

Do you want to stand out from the crowd – have a more individual look? We can have a frame made to your own individual taste. Or perhaps you struggle to find a frame big enough or small enough to really fit well?

In 2008 Tom Davies designed his first ready-to-wear range that is strong on design with a highly contemporary feel and an impressive range of colour options. The models are all manufactured in the highest quality Titanium and Acetate, all beautifully made with extreme attention to detail and finished to the highest specifications.

As well as the Tom Davies ready-to-wear collection in the practice, our Dispensing Opticians can cater for those wishing to have the unique “Bespoke Service”. This service allows you to choose a frame from the Tom Davies ready-to-wear collection and have it customised to fit exactly your own facial and cranial features. You can also select your own bridge, arm,hinge & colour combinations to create your own unique frame, all designed specifically for you and even have your name on the sidearms.

I was very pleased with my glasses and all the help I had choosing them (which was complicated with my eye sight), and also all the help I have been given with managing my eye conditions which has been wonderful. Thank you very much for being there.
