General Questions.


. What is a reglaze?

This is when new lenses are put into your new or existing frames


. Can you do progressive lenses?

Of course we can. We can take the critical measurements from the existing pair and match these exactly to the same frame or apply them to a new frame.


. Why are your prices so low?

As we are a NZ, Internet only based company our overheads are significantly less than the high street (Specsavers etc.) This allows us to provide you with much cheaper lenses, in some cases this will be as little as a ¼ of their price.

We have a spectacle refurbishment service for those who choose to reglaze a frame that has already been worn. We can replace screws, nose pads and end-tips to the sides that may be damaged or discoloured and we will clean the frame ultrasonically. For a small surcharge your frame can be made to look and feel like new. Repairs and frame straightening cannot be done.
