What to consider…
Spectacles for men, women and children are recommended based on the design of the frame and the individual’s facial features and contours, as well as this the patient’s personality, occupation and intended use.
For example the aviator (or “pilot”) frame design features a teardrop shaped lens and was originally created as a sleek and light alternative to traditional designs.
Other considerations when choosing a glass frame include:
- The weight of the frame, with standard, light and ultralight options.
- The material that the frames are made from – metal, plastic, titanium or mixed.
- The bridge width of the frames and type, including comfort fit, saddle bridge, keyhole bridge and adjustable nose pad.
- The colour and frame finish.
- The hinges on the frame, from standard / barrel hinges, spring hinges to no hinge frames.
Other frame shapes include:
- Cat Eye.
Journey To A Clearer Future
How often and when should you change your spectacle frames in Wimbledon?
This is actually a personal choice, but you should seek the opinion of your Optometrist and their recommendations. Our experienced Optometrists and Dispensing Opticians will be able to see if your current prescription requires any adjustments, even if you feel that they are perfect.
Indicators to look for in deciding if you require new spectacles or lenses are:
- A change in your prescription following your yearly eye examination.
- Wear and tear on your existing frames and lenses.
- New technologies.
- If your current frames are out-dated or not fashionable.
Spectacles frames are a personal choice and it is important that you feel comfortable when you wear them.
Bespoke Frame Design
We offer a bespoke frame design service for those patients that desire to have something different. Bespoke design takes into account a person’s natural features, fitting perfectly to your nose, head shape, and ears providing unparalleled comfort. It is also very useful for those patients who have high prescriptions, where a frame depth can be increased to hide the edge thickness of the lenses.
Your bespoke frame can also be personalised with a name or make it a perfect gift for a loved one!
Reading Glasses for all ages.
We naturally lose elasticity in the eye as we get older which makes reading difficult. This condition is known as presbyopia. Some signs and symptoms of presbyopia are squinting, moving reading material further away, headaches when trying to read and difficulty reading in low light conditions.
Types of Reading Glasses:
- Single vision readers.
- Bi-focal readers.
- Computer readers.
- Reading sunglasses.
- Folding reading glasses.
As many reading spectacles are available on the market, it is important one chooses the right strength as prescribed by the Optometrist and correctly measured by a Dispensing Optician. Wearing an incorrect prescription for reading spectacles can give rise to symptoms such as dizziness, discomfort, headaches or nausea.
