Ready-made Readers

You might think that ready made reading glasses are an odd thing for an optometry practice to sell, given that our core business is individualised prescription eye wear is core business for us. However, ready made reading glasses are ideal for contact lens wearers and can  be a cost effective alternative to a tailor-made pair if you have a suitable prescription. And who better to tell you that than us?

Ready-made readers always have the same power in the right and left lens, come in a limited range of powers and don't correct for astigmatism. The lenses are centered at a measurement that may not be suitable for you.  If you don't know whether you have similar right and left prescriptions, whether you have astigmatism or whether your close vision difficulties are due to cataracts or other eye disease, we recommend you have an eye exam to find out. That way, you'll find out whether prescription glasses would give you better vision or not, whether ready-mades would make a useful backup pair, and you'll know whether your eyes are healthy.

We stock a range of bifocals which suit contact lens wearers or people who need to see in the distance as well as read. This includes  readymade bifocal sunglasses from Ugly Fish and Maui Jim which are particularly popular because they make reading outside easier and more convenient

Finding a trustworthy practice was life-changing and a relief after being supplied with poorly aligned glasses in the past, which made life difficult. They have a sensitive professional approach that puts the customer first"
