Frames today are an on trend accessory that are functional, fashionable and desirable.

We stock famous names and some simpler brands that all work for form and function. We have i-pads to capture your new look so you can see what you're choosing, or we can even pop some contact lenses in for you!

Eyewear comes in a variety of materials and styles which we can help you to navigate to find the look you'll love. Acetate - (often referred to as plastic) is a material that suits every style, from traditional to totally on trend. It can be very feminine, in soft pastels or solid brights, or very masculine, in heavy opaque black or tortoiseshell.

Acetates are skin friendly, hypoallergenic, and durable. They're perfect for higher prescriptions as the rims cover lens edges.  Colours are strong and bright this year, with mottled finishes, ombre fading and translucent materials.Take a look at Mulberry, Face a Face, Tom Ford and Prada.

Metal frames are made of different alloys, and the metal used affects the weight, durability, and look of the frame. Metal can be thin and barely-there, or chunky and bold. It's strong, lightweight, and easy to adjust. The nose pads can be fitted every contour of your bridge, and if you bend a metal frame it will usually go back into shape. It can provoke a skin reaction if you have sensitivity to metals - if so ask for stainless steel or Titanium.

Metals are having a moment this year, with huge simple rims in very shiny gold making a return to the fashion forefront. It's a Studio 54 1970's vibe! Dior, Chloe and Fendi have some fabulous new models. So if you want to change your look, book a dispensing appointment any of our practices where the friendly dispensing team will be happy to assist you or let you experiment with our eye wear!
