I am passionate about offering the best customer service we can and so am especially pleased to offer these fantastic guarantees:

• Kodak Two Year Anti-Scratch Guarantee – we offer a two year anti-scratch guarantee on all Kodak Clean & Clear, Kodak Clean & Clear UV and Kodak BluProtect lenses.  If your lenses are scratched within the first two years of you owning them, just return them to us and we will provide you with replacements absolutely free.  We will simply need to see your receipt as proof of purchase.

Personally I have always thought that tinted sunglasses were a bit of an affectation but I recently read an article which has changed my mind.

The tint on sunglasses is known as the base tint and is what you see from the inside of the lens. The most common tints are grey and green as they offer the most neutral view.  However, other colours can provide more contrast, which is key for certain sports.

I am pleased to say that over the years technological advances in optometry have enabled opticians to detect a wide range of eye conditions through routine eye examinations alone.  As with many health problems early detection is the key to a speedy solution.

I suspect many of you will be thinking about making improvements to your lifestyle for 2018.  Why not get a new look, have the freedom to be more active or improve your overall vision by starting to wear contact lenses.

I have recently been made aware of American research published last year which indicates leafy green vegetables may help protect against glaucoma.
