VARIFOCALS AND ADVANCED LENSES
Thanks to advances in lens technology, modern lenses are clearer, thinner, lighter and tougher than ever before. At Eric Mercer Optometrist, we specialise in varifocals and other advanced lens designs. Using our friendly expertise we'll help guide you towards the best lenses suited to your individual needs.
Varifocals offer significant advantages over bifocals. As well as having no visible line, they allow you to see clearly at any distance - from far away to close-up and all points in-between. Wearing varifocals makes it easy to focus at that awkward arm's-length range needed for car dashboards, supermarket shelves and computers.
Thin and light lenses
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.
Silhouette is the leading brand in rimless frames worldwide. Renowned for quality, innovation and attention to detail, Silhouette frames offer unrivalled comfort and style. And because Silhouette employs only the latest high-tech, super-light materials, you'll almost forget you're wearing glasses at all.
Keeping up with modern trends, Silhouette has also introduced some exceptional ranges of plastic frames. Made from flexible SPX material, these stylish frames are extremely strong and light, as well as being at the cutting edge of fashion.
At Eric Mercer Optometrist we are authorised partners for Silhouette with access to all current models. Book your free Silhouette consultation today.
PROTECT YOUR EYES WITH QUALITY SUNGLASSES
Over-exposure to UV light can cause inflammation at the front of your eyes and even skin cancers in the delicate tissues around the eyelids. Research also shows that UV damage can lead to long-term problems inside the eyes, like cataracts and macular degeneration. It is recommended that you always wear sunglasses when the UV index rises to 3 or more.
If you wear spectacles you needn't miss out on stylish sunglasses. At Eric Mercer Optometrist, we offer a wide range of attractive designs that can be made up to your personal prescription. Our prescription sunglasses are available in a full range of lens types including varifocals and bifocals. All guaranteed to block out 100% of harmful UV rays.
LENSES FOR SAFER DRIVING
There are a wide range of lens types available to help make your driving safer and more comfortable. Depending on your individual needs, options include Transitions Xtractive, Xperio polarized or Road Pilot lenses. In all cases, we strongly recommend Reflection-free lenses. These incorporate a special anti-reflective coating designed to reduce dazzle from headlights and streetlights, as well as reflected glare from wet or icy roads and other cars.
