Eyewear & Lenses

Using the finest quality lenses is not enough. Just as important is the knowledge and experience of the optometrist and dispensing optician to take any measurements accurately and recommend the most suitable lenses for your eye prescription and the frame you choose.

Using these measurements our glazing house grinds the lenses to the selected frames.

The final step is for the optometrist or dispensing optician to correctly fit the frames to your patients face and then check your vision with our charts to ensure that you see what you should be seeing!

Obviously the size and shape of your face are important, but more critical is the correct interpretation of your prescription. The power and design of your lenses in some cases will limit your choice of frames.

  • Square face: slightly curved frames that sit high to minimize the jawline
  • Round face: straight or angular lines, deep colors
  • Triangular face: thin rims with vertical lines that sit lower on face; avoid bold colors and large frames
  • Oblong face: similar to square but frames should cover as much of the center of the face as possible
  • Oval face: almost any shape, but keep size in proportion to the face

Covid-19

We are pleased to announce that we will be reopening our practice, however to keep you and our staff from the COVID-19 we have put the following measures in place:

APPOINTMENTS: To observe social distancing we will be controlling the number of people in the practice at any one time therefore we kindly ask all patients to call ahead (0161 973 3674) to arrange appointments for spectacle adjustments, collection of glasses or the choosing of new frames.

PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT: Your safety and that of our staff is our number one priority and we have strict procedures in place for that reason. Staff will be wearing face masks for any direct contact with patients and full PPE in our consulting rooms.

HYGIENE: You will be asked to sanitise when you enter the practice and we request you wear a face covering. All frames that are tried on are disinfected, in addition surfaces, including ophthalmic equipment, that are touched are cleaned between us seeing patients in any part of the building. We are taking all these measures in line with guidance to ensure your safety and that of our staff.

EXAMINATIONS WITH RETINAL IMAGING: With social distancing in mind it is difficult to rely on basic eye examination techniques such as ophthalmoscopy. As such we strongly recommend that all NHS eligible patients upgrade to include retinal imaging which is not covered by the NHS Sight Test. The fee for imaging being £12.

OUR APPRECIATION: It's been a tough time for all of us however we were delighted in serving the urgent and essential needs of our patients during the lockdown. We thank everyone who has supported us so far and look forward to serving our patients and the wider community for a long time to come.
