There has never been a better time to wear spectacles. Thanks to advances in lens technology, modern lens designs are clearer, thinner, lighter and tougher than ever before. At Eric Mercer's we recommend Essilor lenses as our first lens of choice. Essilor is world renowned for innovation and quality. In 1959, they invented the Varilux lens - the world's first varifocal. Since then, Essilor has remained at the forefront of lens technology and design.

In the past, wearing varifocals often meant visual compromises, like distorted side vision and constant head movements. However, the latest Varilux X series lenses offer much more natural vision with wider fields of view and greater visual stability when moving.
This makes them much easier to adapt to than older designs. So even if you've tried varifocals before and struggled, it's well worth trying again. You'll be amazed at the improvements.
And remember, varifocals offer considerable advantages over bifocals. As well as having no visible line, they allow you to see clearly at any distance - including that awkward arm's-length range needed for dashboards, supermarket shelves and computers.
For complete peace of mind, all our Varilux lenses are covered by a 60 day adaptation guarantee.
Our Crizal UV reflection-free lenses don’t just stop your eyes being hidden behind unsightly reflections, they also help reduce glare from oncoming headlights that can make night driving stressful.
If you work in an office, reflection-free lenses banish annoying reflections from computer screens and ambient lighting.
Best of all, Crizal Sapphire UV lenses are so tough that we give a free, two-year, no-quibble guarantee against scratches. They also offer unrivaled protection against dust and dirt, as well as fingerprints and smudges.
And what's more, Crizal UV lenses filter out 100% of harmful UV rays, so they’re the healthy option too.
Thin & Light lenses
Modern lens materials, allied to the latest computer-based technologies, mean that manufacturers can make lenses that are thinner and lighter than have ever been possible before.
If you’re short sighted, the thickness of the edge of standard lenses can ruin the effect of a nice designer frame, while if you are long sighted, conventional lenses can bulge out from the frame and magnify your eyes.
Modern thin and light lenses don’t just look better - they are also naturally lighter, making them much more comfortable to wear.
So, whether you wear single vision lenses, varifocals or bifocals, ask us about Thin and Light lenses to help make the most of your new spectacles.
Xperio polarized lenses
Xperio polarized lenses are more than just a sun lens. They offer greater protection, comfort and safety than other sunglass lenses. They do this by eliminating glare, enhancing colour and contrast whilst protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays.
They're ideal for driving, sports and other outdoor activities like cycling, fishing and sailing. They are also a great option if your eyes are particularly light-sensitive.
Xperio polarizing lenses have an Eye-Sun protection factor of 50+. That means they give your eyes 50 times more protection than wearing no lenses. They come in a range of stylish colours including grey, brown and grey-green.
Available as prescription lenses, the Xperio polarizing range is available across a wide range of materials and designs, including varifocals and the latest thinner lighter lenses.
Transitions lenses are designed to quickly adapt from clear indoors to fully dark in the brightest sun. They continuously adapt to changing light so they’re always exactly the shade you need them to be.
Transitions lenses filter out 100% of dangerous UV radiation, so they’re healthy too. That helps protect you from long-term complications, like cataracts and macular degeneration.
Transitions can be applied to almost any optical lens material or design, including varifocals and bifocals, irrespective of your prescription.
