  Prescription Lens Quotation

Prescription Lenses Quote

At Eyediology, we offer a wide range of prescription lenses.

We can supply lenses from all leading lens manufacturers including Nikon, Essilor and Zeiss.

Once you have decided on the lens index material and the appropriate coating, the type of lens required needs to be specified. That is, if you are wanting a single vision lens (eg. for reading OR for driving), bifocal lens (eg. for reading AND driving), occupational lens (eg. for reading AND computer work) or varifocal (for all tasks including reading, computer work and driving). The more tasks required, the more technology is involved in making the final lens product more customized to your needs.

If you know what kind of lens you require, the contact form at the bottom of the page may be used to provide us with more information so that we might advise on your lens price.

However, if you are unsure, the best route is to come in store and/or book an appointment to discuss your options. This will enable us to provide you with a more customized and accurate quote.

Please contact us if you require any other information.

Nikon Basic

Nikon basic prescription lens which has a hydrophobic anti-reflective coating which provides good scratch resistance. Ideal for those wanting affordable quality.

Nikon Premium

The result is a more natural and clearer vision compared to standard lenses. The aspheric design of the lens also makes them thinner, lighter and flatter than the spherical standard lenses. They also have come with a premium anti-reflection coating called ‘Ikon’. This coating includes an anti-scratch, water repellent and easy clean coating.

Nikon Elite - 18 months scratch guarantee

These lenses are available in aspheric and double aspheric design which helps reduce aberrations giving excellent optical performance.

The Nikon Elite range comes with an 18 months scratch guarantee. The SeeCoat also has excellent water repellent qualities that allow a high resistance to finger prints and dirt accumulation. This makes them far easier to clean, staying cleaner for up to two times longer than

What lens index should I choose?

There are four main types of plastic materials used for lenses: 1.5 index, 1.6 index, 1.67 index and 1.74 index. High index lenses (eg. 1.74 index) are used on higher prescriptions to reduce the thickness and weight of the finished lens product. The type of lenses you need depend on the strength of your prescription, the type of frame and your individual visual requirements.

Various lens coatings (including anti-reflective, scratch resistance, UV protective, blue-light blocking, coloured tints, transitions or polarized coatings) can be added to enhance your visual experience. It is worth thinking about what you use your glasses for, and noting which coating suits your needs.

Varifocal lenses are designed to give the convenience of a single pair of spectacles functioning to give clear vision at different distances. The lens is broken down into three zones; distance vision at the top, reading at the bottom and the mid-section which is often used for tasks at an arm’s length e.g. PC work. There are different varifocal lens designs available. The lens has a ‘corridor’ of clear vision down the middle with areas of less-clear vision towards the lens edges. In general the more advanced the lens design the better clarity of vision across the lens.
