Lens technology is evolving as quickly as science and tech can keep up. We are proud and able to recommend the best lenses for your visual needs whether that be day to day vision, VDU work, craft, reading or hobbies.

There is no limit to the array of lenses we can dispense to provide a visual solution and have access to high quality, technologically advanced lenses. Varifocals with bespoke measurements, office/computer lenses and guaranteed coatings. We are all advocates of these lens products and all wear them personally so can advocate how well they work.

We use a specialist machine called the Visioffice® 2, which takes bespoke measurements, unique to each person’s eye shape and movements creating a set of personalised lenses just for the wearer. We are also one of the only opticians in Derby to be able to supply the Varilux X4D Varifocal lenses, which are a fully bespoke lens only available with Visioffice measurements.

Help Toward The Cost of Your Glasses

NHS Vouchers

Although the NHS no longer supplies spectacle frames, they can issue vouchers towards the cost of buying frames to those who are entitled to help. The value of a voucher varies depending on age and the strength of the lens required, and will cover a portion of the cost of the spectacles.

Pension Credit can also be used towards the cost of your glasses, please give us a call or come and visit us in store to ask us for more details on your particular case.


Our RP4 scheme not only covers the cost of your full private eye examination with OCT but you will also receive a 30% discount off all spectacle related purchases. For more information please get in touch.
