Nigel & Judith visit Hoya Lens Manufacturer

Nigel and Judith have just returned from a visit to lens manufacturer Hoya, in Bangkok.

Here they were able to witness first hand the new technology that goes into making the very latest “low distortion” varifocals. The plant also uses the revolutionary ” Blue control” coatings for protection against HEV, High Energy Visual Rays (the radiation emitted by computer screens and often responsible for visual fatigue).

“We had an amazing time as guests of Hoya, and were fascinated by the whole Hoya set up in Bangkok. We were shown around by Mr Kudos, chief executive of Hoya Thailand, who couldn’t have been more helpful. We certainly hope that we can pass on our new found knowledge to our UK glasses wearers” comments Nigel.

Letter from Vision Aid Overseas

We have just received this lovely letter from vision aid Overseas and would like to thank everyone for glasses and money donated

Thank you for supporting Vision Aid Overseas!

I am writing to say a big THANK YOU for the spectacles that you recently sent to Vision Aid Overseas. Your support will help us to fight poverty by providing eye care services to people in developing countries who are unnecessarily visually impaired because of poor eye sight.

Vision Aid Overseas is fighting poverty in six countries in Africa by transforming access to eye care. Last year we reached 48,459 patients. However, 10% of the world’s population are still unnecessarily visually impaired because they do not have spectacles.

In the UK, it is extremely easy to take good sight for granted because of the vast number of optical professionals who work on our high streets. In many parts of the world the story could not be more different. Spectacles are only available to the privileged few and most people cannot afford any eye care.

Thank you again for your support and if you would like any more information about Vision Aid Overseas please do not hesitate to contact us.

Very best wishes,

Vision Aid Overseas

Our personally selected frames include Face a Face from Paris, William Morris from London, and Etnia from Barcelona to name but a few. We look forward to sharing them with you.

Wear a work of Art Every Day!

We know how important it is to our discerning customers to be able to wear stylish eyewear, which is why we wanted you to know about the launch of our exclusive Ronit Furst Range.



Internationally renowned ceramicist Ronit Furst started painting her own glasses when she decided that she was unable to find anything new or exciting wherever she looked. The results caused such a stir that she decided to launch her own range with stunning results.
We are proud to add Ronit Furst to our portfolio. This is a must see range!

Simply call in to view the huge range of fabulous frames on offer, or if you would like your eyes re-examined before choosing, just call 0191 2516102 to book your appointment.
