Essilor is the world leader for corrective lenses. The success of the group, which is present in more than 100 countries, is the result of a strategy that has been driven by innovation for more than 160 years. From design to manufacture, the group develops a wide range of lenses to correct and protect eyesight.
Single Vision Lenses
Single vision lenses are to correct one particular eyesight problem.
They are the simplest form of spectacle lens and are made to a single prescription.
Concave lenses correct short sight and are thinner in the centre than at the edge.
Convex lenses correct long sight and are thinner at the edge of the lens.
The curvature of the lens, its thickness and weight will all depend on the degree of eyesight to be corrected.
The lens material will also influence thickness and weight of glasses, as will the size and shape of frame you choose.
Lenses are now made of lightweight plastics, rather than traditional glass.
There is a wide range of choice to suit your prescription and lifestyle. We will advise on the best for you.
As we age we gradually lose the ability to focus on close objects. This normally occurs in our mid-forties as eyes stiffen and muscles that control them change. This is known as Presbyopia and it happens to us all. Signs you may have noticed include:
Reading small print further away
Needing more light to read
Headaches from eye fatigue
Why choose Varifocal lenses over Bifocal?

They are the ultimate corrective option
They have the convenience of having natural vision at all distances in one pair of glasses

Bifocal lenses contain two optical corrections with a distinct dividing line between the two parts. The most common use for bifocals is for correcting presbyopia. This is the condition that tends to occur with age when the eyes become less able to focus at close distances, meaning two different prescriptions are needed. Although varifocals are generally preferred to bifocals, certain prescriptions and lifestyles are better corrected using a bifocal lens.

Transition lenses are equipped with patented, photochromic dyes that enable the lenses to rapidly darken, when they are exposed to ultraviolet light. The greater the intensity of UV rays, the darker the lenses become. When UV light is no longer present (indoors or at night) the lenses fade back to their original state.
Transitions also offer an XTRActive lens which are adaptive sunglasses that go from a tint to a darker tint, depending on how much sunlight is present. These lenses unlike some are able to darken even behind a car windscreen and will darken up to 50% depth.
Lenses are available for a variety of different sports for example winter sports, swimming goggles, cycling, snooker glasses and golfing to name a few.
These lenses offer different filters and coatings to provide optimum visual comfort.
