Happy customers at Specs2U

We recently did a new pair of glasses for a lovely lady who unfortunately had a stroke and relies very much on her glasses to read the paper, do crosswords and the like. She was struggling with her old glasses (from another opticians) as the reading area on her bifocals was quite small. We gave her much larger round segment bifocals and upgraded her distance as well (especially so she can see the TV better). She wasn't even wearing her old glasses when she came in. We put the new ones on and immediately her face lit up! She smiled as she looked around the room - and continued smiling as we tried the reading chart. She could read a much smaller typeface than before and found reading much easier. She was delighted and - significantly - insisted on wearing them straight away.

Incidents like this really help us feel we're helping people out. 

Its time for sunglasses!

sunglasses We haven't seen much of it recently but sunshine seems to be making a comeback. Forget snowdrops and buds on the tree - the first sign of spring seems to be sunglasses making an appearance.

Driving a car, walking to the shops, taking the dog for a walk...all of a sudden the sun seems to be in your eyes all the time.

Our range of sun protection lenses is wide and varied to meet all eventualities. We offer Transitions photochromic lenses - some of which stay dark behind the windscreen of the car (most photochromic lenses don't, by the way). Or UV protected tints and lenses to turn virtually any frame into a pair of sunglasses.

We also provide polarised lenses and mirrored lenses (if that's your preference).

All can be made to your prescription and to your specification (including distance glasses, reading glasses for the beach, bifocal and varifocal sunglasses....).

So if the sun is starting to get in your eyes, then give us a call.
