Spectacle Dispensing Clinic

A wide range of spectacles and lenses, expert advice and fitting.

Our Spectacle Dispensing Clinic is open to the public 5 days a week and stocks a wide selection of frames from designer names to economy frames. As a training institution, we are able to supply spectacles at very competitive prices.

We can supply a very wide range of lenses including:

  • many types of bifocals and varifocals
  • glass, plastic, polycarbonate, toughened lenses
  • lightweight / thin lenses
  • photochromic lenses
  • scratch / hydrophobic / anti-reflection coatings
  • ultra-violet protection and a wide range of tints

We can also supply occupational related spectacles such as safety spectacles and spectacles dispensed for companies e.g. Firefighters, London Underground

Our service to you

After your eye examination we will discuss your exact requirements with you and give expert and objective advice about the best style of frame and the optimum lens type and material.

A computerised viewing system is available in our dispensing clinic in order to guide you on the most suitable frame shape, size and colour. You can view an image of yourself on the computer screen wearing the frames of your choice and you can use your current spectacles to view the screen rather than relying on the opinions of others or viewing a mirror image of yourself.
