Lens Technology

Optimize the performance and appearance of your lenses using the latest hi-tech designs and materials

At Hey Optometrists we can help you with expert advice on the type of lens that best suits your visual and lifestyle requirements. We offer a comprehensive range of single vision, bifocal, progressive and occupational lenses, including prescription sunglasses and safety eyewear.

As an independent practice we are free to select lens designs from a wide variety of the world’s top manufacturers including Essilor, Nikon, Hoya and Zeiss. Using the latest lens technology from these top international lens designers allows us to offer you improvements in the appearance, comfort and performance of your spectacles. With hundreds of products to choose from, we can help you find the best solution to your visual needs.

Thinner and Lighter

With modern hi-tech designs and high index materials we can make your lenses thinner, lighter and more cosmetically appealing than ever before.

Anti-Reflection Coating

Multi layer anti-reflection coatings reduce reflections from the surfaces of your lenses, enhancing their appearance and making them more comfortable when driving at night or using a computer. We can even provide coatings that help protect from the harsh blue light produced by many modern digital devices and LED screens.

Free Form Progressives

The latest generation of free form progressive lenses, like the Varilux® range from Essilor, are custom made by the manufacturer, using a combination of sophisticated computer based designs and state of the art digital surfacing technology to optimize the performance of the lens for your individual prescription requirements. This enables us to provide a truly individual solution to your progressive lens needs. The same technology is now available in occupational lens designs, ideal for office workers.

Everyday Sun Protection

The latest Transitions® lenses darken and fade rapidly with changing light conditions, offering outstanding convenience and sun protection from your everyday eyewear. Light weight, comfortable to wear and providing excellent UV protection, these lenses are now available in a wide range of designs, so there has never been a better time to choose light sensitive lenses.

Prescription Sunglasses

Prescription sunglass lenses are available in a wide range of lens designs and a huge variety of colours with either full or graduated tints. We can also provide polarized prescription lenses which eliminate reflected glare, making them ideal for boating and fishing. All of these sun protection options provide excellent UV protection.

Chemistrie Clip ons

The clip on sunglass has really come of age with the latest Chemistrie clip ons. Using a pair of tiny magnets mounted into your spectacle lenses to hold them securely in place these stylish accessories offer a neat, light weight and convenient way to turn almost any pair of glasses into sunglasses whenever you want. Available in a variety of styles and colours, with polarized and non-polarized lens options we can even retro-fit a clip on to your existing spectacles.
