At Glasses Frames and Lenses we care about the health of your eyes. As a family owned and run business since 2008, your return custom is important to us. This is why you will not find us selling low grade varifocal lenses that are not going to give you the best visual acuity, we are about affordable quality, after all you only have 1 pair of eyes.

We offer a range of high quality varifocal lenses that will give you the width of vision that a varifocal demands. You may have not been offered a choice before in the High Street for your varifocals lens options so we will explain a little more here.

Bespoke Varifocal Lenses: Our Bespoke Digitised Freeform Varifocal is an excellent quality varifocal lens and is supplied by our sister company, Insight Lenses, to one of the leading High Street multiple opticians. This lens is crafted individually to suit your prescription with the advantage of Back Surface Technology. You will benefit from a wider field of vision and an enhanced visual acuity and optical performance than conventional front surfaced varifocals. 

Available with:

  • Transition VII in all indexes
  • Polarised sun lenses in indexes up to 1.67
  • New graduated polarised lenses in 1.5 index only
  • UV420 ++ (a new product that protects and prolongs the health of your eyes beyond the usual 420 nm) in 1.5 and 1.6 index only
  • Tints up to a 1.67 index 
ClearView Advanced Digital Varifocal Lenses: This is a superior bi aspherical varifocal lens design offering exceptional clarity of vision across all  fields at a very affordable price. This lens is the more recently updated technology and therefore like our Bespoke Varifocal lenses, this varifocal lens is a Digitised Freeform Varifocal with the advantage of Back Surface Technology but comes with an updated bi aspherical lens design. You would benefit from an even more enhanced optical performance than on the Bespoke varifocal lens and the bi aspheric element will also make the lens flatter and therefore thinner. This lens is extremely easy to adapt to and is exceptional quality for the price. Again through our sister company, Insight Lenses, this lens is sold to Independent Opticians up and down the UK.

Available with:

  • Transition VII in all indexes
  • Polarised sun lenses in indexes up to 1.67
  • New graduated polarised lenses in 1.5 index only
  • UV420 ++ (a new product that protects and prolongs the health of your eyes beyond the usual 420 nm) in 1.5 and 1.6 index only
  • Tints up to a 1.67 index 

Tokai Resonas (Neuroscience) Varifocal Lenses: What do neuroscience and optics have in common? Looking triggers stimuli in certain areas of the brain, creating specific reactions. By using the data from a special neurological eye test measuring stress and discomfort of the brain; Tokai created a new varifocal lens that the brain was already comfortable viewing through, thus creating a smoother adaptation to the varifocal lens with superior wearer comfort and a smoother transition of the power. This 3D back surface design on the inner curve produces wide smooth vision in each area of the lens.

Available with:

  • Transition VII in 1.5, 1.6, 1.70 and 1.76 (the thinnest lens material in the world)
  • Tints up to 85% across all indexes including 1.76 index

Tokai Lutina Resonas WS Double Aspheric Neuroscience Varifocal Lenses:  Tokai presents a revolutionary new superior type of varifocal lens that are not just for vision correction, they are designed specifically with the health of the eyes in mind. Age related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is the most common cause of vision loss for the age group 50+.  Studies show that the deterioration of Lutein within the macula can lead to the onset of AMD. Lutein is one of three carotenoid pigments that are present in very high concentrations in the retina of the eye, or more specifically in the lens and the macula. It has antioxidant properties and also filters blue light, both contributing to the prevention of AMD. Tokai Lutina Resonas WS varifocal lens is a new varifocal lens material that helps to protect the wearer from the development of AMD by filtering harmful UV-rays beyond 400nm (where most of the damage is done), thus helping to protect the lutein in the macula, and by doing so, improving ocular health.

Availability:

  • In 1.6 and 1.67 index only
  • Tints up to a 1.67 index    
Tokai Night Drive Modecinq Varifocal Lenses: Tokai Night Drive Modecinq varifocal lens was designed specifically to improve all-round visibility at night. It achieves this by reducing glare, selectively cutting out the light waves of headlights and maintains brightness by transmitting light waves near 510nm, where brightness is felt at night. The picture to the left is without Tokai Night Drive Modecinq Varifocal lenses; the picture to the right is with Tokai Modecinq Varifocal lenses.
