Quality Frames are Important

At Absolute Vision we try to make sure you get the very best value for money when it comes to your glasses.

We have a large range of quality spectacle frames, from very economical options right through to the latest fashions. Our job is to help you make the right decisions that will give you the best possible vision, but at the same time meet all  your expectations for quality, great looks and price.

We want you to be comfortable and to know what you are getting and why. Vanessa and Courtney will take the time to explain our recommendations and to give you the information to make the decision that’s right for you!

About Lenses

When buying spectacles, the lenses you choose plays a huge part in the final outcome. A common mistake people often make when buying glasses is not spending enough time considering their choices of lens materials, designs and coatings.

There are many factors to consider when selecting lenses. Vanessa has many years of experience in helping our clients to get the right lenses for the right job. There are many options when it comes to features, benefits and price.  Your optometrist will make a recommendation based on your eye examination, and this is very much like a doctor’s prescription. There are very good reasons for recommending a particular lens and following the recommendation will generally get the best result.

Lens thickness is determined in part by the size and style of the frame you choose. For thinner lenses, choose smaller, round or oval frames. Also, plastic frames hide edge thickness better.

Choosing the best lens index for you is an important decision. There are the four most important things you need to know:

The greater the index number, the thinner the lens.

The more complex your prescription, the thicker (and heavier) the lens, which means higher prescriptions require a higher index to keep the lens thin, light, and free of distortion.

The higher the lens index, the more it will cost. At Absolute Vision, we offer six different lens indexes. Most prescriptions are compatible with more than one index, so it depends on how light and comfortable you want your glasses to be. Stronger prescriptions with lower than recommended indexes result in glasses that have that coke-bottle look to them.

Safety Specs

Some occupations and hobbies require the use of safety glasses. We have a range of prescription safety glasses we can prescribe. These meet the AS/NZS 1337.6 for medium impact and come with certification.

Repairs and Service

While we know you do your best to look after your glasses, we understand accidents happen. If your glasses are broken, bring them in for us to assess. Sometimes we can fix it on the spot, sometimes we can send them away for repair. Unfortunately not all breakages can be repaired.

We do recommend you bring your glasses in for a service every 6 months to keep them in the best shape possible. At this service all the screws will be tightened, the frames re fitted to you and lenses cleaned.
