eye : Max < > create your own style

eye : max<>

Simon Pestell Opticains are pleased to announce they are stockists of the new eye: max <> range of mix and match spectacle frames.

Eye: max glasses allow you to change the temples on your spectacles. Quite easily, any time, anywhere. Thus you can give your spectacles a lot of looks, as you change “only” the temples, your glasses always remain stable.

To change the temples over and over again there is a safety catch perfectly joining the temples with your glasses.

As it’s so easy you can really enjoy trying a new colour or a fancy pattern. There are hundreds of different temples: wide and thin, monochrome and patterned, matt or shiny, made of metal or plastic.

Children from Hammond School visit our practice.

We really enjoyed having the children from Hammond School visit our practice as part of their local business experience.

Lightwater Business Association arranged ‘behind the scenes’ visits with local independent business owners, we were amazed how interested the children were, and also the vast range of questions the children asked.

They especially enjoyed touching and feeling contact lenses, and also the experience of trying on our range of junior and teenage spectacle frames.

We were pleased to greet some of our existing patients, who were able to help us convey the importance of regular eye examinations to the other children in the group that had not as yet had a full eye test.

BlueControl. For that extra bit of comfort in a digital world

LCD and LED computer and television screens, smart phones  tablets and GPS all emit blue light. Although blue light in itself is a natural phenomenon -it is present in daylight and helps us stay awake-  over-exposure can cause eye strain, eye fatigue and even sleeplessness.

Hoya BlueControl is a coating that neutralises the blue light emitted by digital devices, keeping the eyes in better condition. It offers more comfortable and relaxed vision and better contrast perception, preventing eye strain and fatigue.
