Vision Express Opticians - Vision taken seriously

Lens enhancements

Single vision lenses have one single prescription across their entire surface and are suitable in all scenarios, whether you need your glasses for driving, working or reading.

Scratch resistant coating

Scratch resistant lenses provide protection from everyday accidental damage. The hard coating prolongs the life of the lens, whilst simultaneously providing clearer vision. At Vision Express all of our lenses include a scratch resistant coating as standard.

Anti-reflection lenses example

Removes reflections for clearer vision and great appearance add £35

The curved surface of glasses lenses, along with the materials they are made from, cause reflections. In fact, you can lose around 10% of light through reflections on lenses. These reflections can be distracting and appear unattractive.

An anti-reflective coating allows for clearer vision by reducing reflections, allowing 99.8% of the light through the lens and ensuring distractions to your vision are minimal. Your glasses' appearance is also improved, as others can see your eyes rather than reflections of light. See the difference with our anti-reflection demonstration.

At Vision Express all our anti-reflection lenses include the latest technological development – a super-hydrophobic coating, which can now make your lenses resistant to condensation, water-repellent and easier to clean.

Thinner & lighter lenses example

Thin & Light lenses

Thinner for improved appearance, lighter for more comfort, including anti-reflection from £60

At Vision Express we recommend Thin & Light lenses to give you the best looking and most comfortable glasses possible.

Lenses can be made of various materials of varying weight and thickness – the overall result depends on the density of the lens material as well as your personal prescription. As a general rule, if you are long sighted your lenses are thickest in the middle, and the opposite is true if you are short-sighted (the lenses are thickest at the edges).

Thin & Light lenses reduce the overall thickness of your lenses, giving them a lighter feel and improving appearance. All come with super easy-clean surfaces that last longer, and are anti-reflection for clear vision without distractions.

Blue Protect

The Problem

Blue light is naturally present in daylight and it helps us to stay awake. Modern technology such as flat screen TVs, computers, laptops, mobile phones and tablets all emit blue light and therefore increase our exposure levels. Normal lenses allow this artificial blue light through. Over exposure can cause eye strain, eye fatigue and even sleeplessness.

What is Blue Protect?

Blue Protect reduces the excessive blue light emitted by digital devices, keeping the eyes in better condition. Blue Protect lenses help to prevent eye strain and fatigue by offering:

  • More comfortable vision
  • Relaxed vision
  • Better contrast perception
  • Up to 7 times more scratch-resistant than standard lenses
  • Anti-static to prevent dust build up

Who is it suitable for?

Blue Protect premium lenses are ideal for glasses wearers using smartphones, tablets, TVs, laptops and flat screen computers. It's also a great upgrade for existing anti-reflection lenses as Blue Protect is more scratch resistant and stays cleaner, longer.
