Designer Glasses in Newcastle

We can usually supply any designer frame, even if it is not on display, please just ask.; We retail at less than RRP and we are confident that our prices for designer sunglasses and designer glasses are cheaper than our competitors, so much so that we give a 'price promise guarantee'. 

Our opticians use some of the most sophisticated eye testing equipment available including Retinal Photography which allows them to identify conditions which might otherwise be missed.  We conduct eye tests which detect eye conditions such as glaucoma, cataract and macular degeneration (AMD).  Our comprehensive eye examinations also achieve early detectection of a variety of health conditions which are not directly related to your vision such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cholesterol. Early detection can mean that these conditions can be referred for medical intervention prior to the onset of physical symptoms. For details of our eye examination and eye testing procedure please visit the 'See Why' and 'Eyecare' pages.
