Friendly service, thanks to Robert who took the time and care to ensure that I was happy with my new glasses. I would definitely recommend.

Visited the Spectacle Factory a couple of weeks ago for the first time. James did my eye test and was very thorough and informative. Chose a pair of glasses afterwards with the help of another member of staff. Great customer service. I have always gone to high street opticians before and never sure what glasses suit me. I was allowed to take my time and offered helpful advice. Love my new glasses which I picked up with the week. I will be returning to the Spectacle factory in the future. Far superior in terms of quality and customer service compared to other opticians I have been too.

My wife and I both have great glasses (and sunglasses) from The Spectacle Factory. Right from our very first visit we have been very impressed with the highest level of care and attention to detail, both with eye tests and the choice of lenses and frames. They seem to have a flair for helping you to choose the right glasses. Once your order is ready, nothing is too much trouble to ensure that the fit and the suitability of your glasses is perfect for your needs and that you are completely happy. Their ongoing service is second to none. We can highly recommend The Spectacle Factory..

The Spectacle Factory offer me the kind of customer service and ability to customise my choice of spectacles that just is simply not available on the High Street. From Initial contact, to delivery of the finished product, you are treated like a loyal friend. Nothing is too much trouble. Unbiased advise, on choosing the correct spectacles for your particular application. A vast range of frames from the very cheapest to the latest designer frames. I choose the Spectacle Factory, because they can provide me with, customised glasses, to align with my particular needs and requirements. Most high street opticians have a 'one size fits all' attitude. The Spectacle Factory does not subscribe to this theory and treats every client as an individual. Their eye sight is very comprehensive and is 50% longer than the industry standard. If you value your eyesight, and want the very best care, this is the place to visit.

Photography from Zeiss #seeingbeyond conference, Berlin, October 2019

Your visual behaviour has changed. Think about how much time you spend on your smartphone throughout the day. More than you would like to admit? Me too.

We were one of only 1,000 optical stores world-wide invited to the Zeiss #seeingbeyond conference in Berlin, October 2019, where Zeiss first publicised their research on how smartphone usage has changed the way we interact visually with the world around us, and unveiled their new SmartLife technology.

Zeiss used head tracking and eye tracking technology to measure if holding a smartphone changes how we see the world around us. To their surprise, their research found that we move our head less than expected, and move our eyes far more.

It turns out we’re constantly, sub-consciously, using our peripheral vision to check our surrounding while looking at our smartphone. What’s more, we read significantly faster (up to around 500 words per minute) when reading a smartphone than reading a book (roughly 300 words per minute. If you’re curious why that is, it’s because we are also navigating with our thumbs while our eyes are working.

On top of all that, we tend to hold a smartphone at an unusual angle and distance relative to our eyes.

All of these factors push the limitations of conventional lenses, which were designed at a time when our digital lives were completely different.

Zeiss SmartLife lenses support your eyes throughout the day, allowing easy focus changing between your smartphone and your surroundings. They are designed for anyone 20+, and have been trialed by 3,000 patients in Asia, none of whom rejected the lenses, and 96% of whom found the lenses better than their previous ones.

SmartLife lenses also contain one other, crucial feature. They protect your eyes from UV radiation to the same standard as high quality sunglasses. This is something you should take very seriously, as UV exposure significantly increases your risk of eye disease and skin cancer around the eyes. And UV is present all year round, even on cloudy days.

Ask us for a virtual reality demonstration of Zeiss SmartLife lenses, so you can try them before you buy.
