Our highly qualified and experienced dispensing staff at Zacks London Eye Clinics (Islington, London N1 and Fitzrovia, London W1) provide detailed unbiased advice on spectacle frames and lenses without obligation or pressure.
Advanced aspheric technology together with a wide range of high index materials allows for incredibly thin and flat lenses that no longer ‘bulge’ from frames. Therefore the choice of frames available is not restricted by the strength of your prescription.
Bifocal lenses are designed to counter presbyopia, which usually begins to affect us in our forties. As our eyes mature, the nearest point that we can focus on becomes further away and so reading and other near vision activities become more difficult. Bifocal lenses combine a distance and reading prescription in a single lens. The reading prescription is visible in a segment at the bottom of the lens.
Progressive lenses correct the effects of presbyopia with a gradual change in prescription from distance to near vision, restoring your natural vision without the unsightly segmentation lines or image jumps experienced with bifocals. The latest progressive lenses provide complete focussing freedom in all the visual zones to make your vision as simple and natural as possible.
There are several lenses available, which relieve the strain of occupational tasks such as prolonged computer work. Our dispensing experts at Zacks London Eye Clinics can provide guidance on the most suitable lenses for your specific lifestyle requirements.
Lenses can be uncoated, hard coated (so that they scratch less easily) or multi coated to minimise reflections from the lens surfaces. The latest combination coatings leave the lenses cleaner, tougher and clearer than ever before allowing people to see your eyes rather than your lenses.
Transitions lenses offer all the benefits of clear lenses indoors and sunglasses outdoors. They provide visual comfort by automatically adjusting to changing light conditions. This helps to reduce glare and eye fatigue. Eye health is also preserved because these lenses block 100% of UV rays.
