Modern glasses lens options

Kensington Eye Centre understands that you want nothing less than the best in eye care. We offer thinner, high index lenses for all prescriptions, along with special coatings that reduce glare and light reflections. We offer SAME DAY SERVICE on most prescriptions, even the most complex high prescriptions.

These lens options are specially designed to enhance the natural look of your eyes and the style of your frames, rather than the medical aspect.

Protect your eyes from blue light

We all know that computers and devices emit blue light, a cause of retinal cell death and disruption to the natural sleep-wake cycle. For example, it can be harder to fall asleep if you look at your phone when you’re about to go to sleep. Until now, the coating of most prescription lenses blocked just 38% of this blue light.

At Kensington Eye Centre, we utilise the latest in lens technology to block 96% of blue light emitted from devices and screens.
