Keeping you in focus

We provide an extensive range of frames from economy to designers. They are distinctive, fashionable and make a statement, but most of all they are wearable.

We also provide a selection of frames completely free with an NHS Voucher. Your choice of lens is just as important as choosing your frames.

As independent opticians, we provide a large choice of lens designs from quality suppliers such as Rodenstock, Kodak and Essilor.

Multifocal Lenses

If you need spectacles to improve close up and distant vision, one option is to have 2 pairs of spectacles, but this can be both inconvenient and frustrating.

Bifocals - are two lenses in one enabling you to see clearly in the distance and close up, with a line separating the two prescriptions.

Varifocals/Progressive Lenses – these avoid the restrictions of bifocals. These lenses are a complete vision at all distances and are cosmetically appealing as there is no dividing line or segments. At Primesight, our varifocals are always from the best quality manufacturers. This is why we are able to provide you with a 60 day product assurance. If for any reason you cannot get on with your varifocals, we promise to replace them for either a pair of bifocals or a separate pair of reading or distant spectacles.


We provide both private and NHS sight tests. The importance of an eye examination cannot be overstated. Not only can we tell if you if you need spectacles, we can also tell the state of your health. By looking through your pupils with an instrument called an "Ophthalmoscope", we are able to see the retina; the back layer of the eye. Conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes can be detected through changes in the retina.

The lens of the eye which sits behind the Iris (the coloured part of the eye), is where a cataract can develop as we get older. This can lead to reduced sight and increased sensitivity to light.

We are also able to detect glaucoma, a condition which gradually affects your sight. You are not aware of any changes until the advanced stages.

Age related macular degeneration (AMD) is the most common cause of reduced sight in old age For more info on this condition, contact the RNIB for useful booklets on 0845 766 9999, or

We recommend an eye examination every 2 years, but certain conditions as mentioned above, and children should be seen annually.

If you experience any problems prior to your eye test, contact the practice and make an appointment for a check up sooner.
