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.

Polarised Lenses

See without being dazzled with polarised lenses

Customer Reviews:

My partner and I came in for an eye test yesterday, I was amazed by the excellent service we received. I thought it was the most thorough eye test I had ever received. I normally stay away from the big chains as I feel there all about the sale and I like to keep the small man in business, but I feel this was not the case at the Blackburn branch. I will (and have) definitely recommended the shop to other family members and friends etc. All the staff were extremely helpful especially Stacey McCann our sales assistant, who we found really pleasant and she made us feel relaxed.

Fantastic! From the minute I walked through the door, the customer service was exceptional. Connie did my pre examination tests, and made me feel welcome and at ease. Steve was my Optician, and though he had some unwelcome news for me about my sight, he managed to conduct the examination, and deliver the news in a professional, friendly and helpful manner. I could not have asked for more. I was returned to Connie to sort out my glasses, and again her standard of service was exceptional. Fantastic! That sums it up!!
