As an independent community practice we choose the suppliers that we work with and so are able to supply clients with the best lenses for their needs. Choosing the right lenses for your prescription glasses can really enhance your eyesight. Not all lenses are the same so our optometrist and experienced staff are on hand provide professional advice on the various lens options available, which include:
- Cosmetic Lenses: Thinner, lighter lenses that deliver great visual performance.
- Reflection-free lens finishes: Protect your eyes and the purity of your sight by removing light reflections and lens glare.
- Transitions Lenses: Reactive tint technology that allow your eyes to adapt to changing lighting conditions.
- Varifocal Lenses: The modern version of bi-focal lenses with variable areas that can be individually tailored to provide more stable vision for driving, reading and computer use.

I just had to say how pleased I am with my new glasses and how amazed I am at how thin the lenses are despite having a strong prescription. I have been going to Hammonds [Opticians] for a number of years and as always, the service was very friendly, professional and 1st class from beginning to end.
The OCT [Optical Coherence Tomography] instrument was very interesting and useful and it was reassuring to know about the health of my eyes.
I am always happy with the latest technology being used in the test and during dispensing.
Mr Lakhani and his team are always pleasant and polite and I having been coming to him for my eye care for 14 years. I couldn’t be happier with the quality of my frames and lenses – and all my questions are answered to make me feel reassured.
I am very pleased with my new handmade frames.
It’s nice to be able to come in with an idea or a colour that I like and have my spectacles made to match.
The finished product is always lovely, plus I always have excellent service from all the staff.
