Don't replace, reglaze!
You don't need new frames if your prescription has changed. Frames can usually have the lenses replaced two or even three times before they wear out, more if it is a high quality pair of specs. We'll put new lenses in frames others won't. Distance, reading, computer, varifocals and bifocals (if you are one of the few still wearing them) all are possible in either budget or premium offerings.
Don't replace, repair!
A broken frame does not necessarily mean a new frame. We fix most breaks or bends or if needed, replace parts. From replacement screws and nose pads all the way to chemical bonding and micro pulse tig welding bits back on.
We have 25 years of experience in looking after spectacles and sunglasses and believe us, we seen it all! Our repairs are warranted for three months from the day you get them back.
Don't replace, refurbish!
Sometimes all that is needed is a good scrub. We will disassemble your specs, give them a blast in our ultrasonic cleaning bath, lovingly wipe them down and put them back together in one piece.
If they need more than that we can get to work on any imperfections with sandpaper or rotating brushes then polish on our high speed polishing machine. If really bad, we can re-colour, re-plate or whatever is required.
Don't replace, re... err... customise!
If you can't find just what you are looking for on the high street, how about a custom made, bespoke pair of glasses or even clip on sunglasses, made just for you.
When you get bored of your glasses and want a new look, did you know there is much you can do to change your existing pair beyond recognition. Sand blast to a matte finish, polish to a gloss lustre, dye a different colour, add ornamentation, ask us for ideas!
