Workshop Services

Having a full time technician  and our own workshop at our Featherston Street practice ensures we can look after your glasses at the same time we're looking after you.  We can make your new spectacles or repair or refit your old ones on site, promptly.  We can do simple jobs while you wait but for more complex jobs we may require your glasses for a few hours. We've got a  PUK welder so we can repair titanium and stainless steel frames as well as being able to solder more traditional materials. Our spare parts collection is particularly comprehensive, so we can usually find a part to fit. If you're not able to bring your glasses in, you can send them to us instead. We have at least one delivery each day between our  Featherston Street Wellington and Thorndon Practices.


Workshop Services Include:

  •     Fitting new lenses to new or existing frames
  •     Re-edging existing lenses to new frames
  •     Soldering metal frames
  •     Welding titanium and stainless steel frames
  •     Replacements for discoloured or broken nose pads
  •     Temple tip replacements
  •     Screw replacements
  •     Glasses case replacements
  •     Hinge repairs
  •     Nylon thread repair (for semi-rimless frames)
  •     Frame adjustments to optimize your comfort and your vision
  •     Ultrasonic cleaning for those hard to reach places
Replacing screws, ultrasonic cleaning and frame adjustments are all free services. There is a small charge for solders, nose pads and temple tips.
