We'll always let you know the best we can do for you based on your individual needs and your prescription, but you're probably curious as to how much our glasses are and to see if we are a good fit for you.
Let's start with the lenses. There are so many different options and types of spectacles lenses that this guide might not be able to give you an exact price, more of a guideline figure.
Two things that are very important to us here at Village Optician are quality and design. We choose which lenses to provide based on these two factors. Design is so important as lens technology is so good now that we can do so much more with lenses than we ever could. You’ll have to have a look at some of our information on lenses to gain more of an understanding of lens design but basically we want to give you the best we can. Quality is important, there are different qualities of everything you can buy and spectacle lenses are no exception.
The lenses are split in our price guide into 2 main parts Single Vision and Varifocals. Single vision is just that – a distance or near prescription with one focus. Varifocals give a focus at all distances and are needed by presbyopic clients who need a distance and near vision in one pair of glasses. This is the price guide so we won’t go into detailed explanations about the different lenses here.
This guide gives you the bespoke and premium options (in other words the ones we choose to wear ourselves). There are so many lenses available we can't include them all here such as transitions, polarised and office or computer lenses, but all are available. A quick explanation of the lens tables; the thinnest lenses are the 1.76 and the standard thickness lenses are 1.5, most clients will need the 1.5 or 1.6. For a tailored quote you'll need to speak to one of the team and we can recommend based on your prescription.
We specialise in helping you to find your eyewear style; glasses that you feel good about wearing so you’ll find many exclusive and different frames at Village Optician. Our exclusive ranges start around £250 and go up to around £450. These are glasses that you won’t find many people wearing as they aren’t available at high street opticians. To learn more you can download our Eyewear Buying Guide here.
Some examples of our eyewear are Götti, Blackfin, JF Rey, Johann Von Goisern and Morel.
We do have lower priced options in both the frame and lens ranges, although we don’t do ‘basic’ glasses. We are always happy to discuss your options with you, to see if we are a good fit for you.
Our number of 5 star reviews is always growing. Here is what some of our current clients have to say
We have used Village Optician for a few years now. Having tried the usual High St opticians previously, we find them very professional, friendly, nothing is too much trouble, and they take time to explain any issues. It is refreshing not to be rushed and feel pressured into buying new spectacles at every visit.
I visited the Village opticians recently and today collected my new glasses. From the first meeting with the staff to collecting my glasses what a fantastic experience everyone has been so friendly and helpful. I explained I had a problem getting a frame to fit correctly, they told me It wouldn’t be a problem they could sort it. This is the first time I have gone to collect glasses and have them fit first time also the lens they recommended are great. I saw the reviews on line before I visited this opticians and can say I agree with their comments. Your eyesight is precious and this opticians go the extra mile to make sure you receive the best treatment.

I have used The Village Optician for the first time and have been very impressed with the service I have received. I felt the eye test was very thorough and choosing new frames was easy as their range is extensive. Very professional and friendly service from start to finish. I highly recommend this opticians.
