Multifocal Contact Lenses

Do you wear multifocals and think you can't wear contacts? Well think again. It's amazing how many people rule themselves out of wearing contact lenses because they don't think they have a suitable prescription. Technological advances in contact lenses are amongst the fastest moving in optics so it's a rare occurrence when we can't find the perfect lens to suit any eye - even those that require varifocals!

Varifocals

Eyes change throughout our lives, gradually losing the ability to focus on close objects. Varifocals are ideal for all distances, as the lens corrects near, distance and in-between vision.

Customer Reviews:

This morning the retaining loop on my glasses broke. I went to your Watford branch where very helpful staff directed me to the engineer who promptly repaired the damage at no cost. First class service, well done.

Anonymous

Excellent customer service, great communication, attention to detail and a lot of patience shown by Jane Frampton, trainee Optician regarding my multiple purchases. Explained polices re future issues etc very clearly. Jane takes great pride in her work and will be a valuable asset to the company in the future. Well done.

All other staff also showed very similar qualities.

Special mention to Mr Suchak, Optometrist who was very knowledgable, professional and showed great diligence with the consultation and further treatment options. Thanks very much.
