Saving Christmas with same day glasses!

Everyone is in a hurry at this time of year. There’s so much to do. The last thing you need is having to squeeze in a couple of visits to our opticians in Staines to replace or fix broken glasses! Here at The Optical Shop, we can make your life that bit easier by offering same day prescription glasses and repairs to broken glasses.

How do same day glasses work?

We have our own lab on-site, so we are able to make up single vision prescription lenses in as little as an hour. Even if it’s not from us, if you have an up to date prescription, it’s simply a case of bringing it in. We stock scratch-resistant, anti-reflection and high index plastic lenses and will help you choose the best option for your prescription and lifestyle needs.

If you need new glasses and don’t have a current prescription, simply book an eye test with us and we’ll be able to make up your glasses up straight after. You certainly don’t need to worry about finding time to come back a week later – just go and grab a coffee or do a spot of last-minute shopping and your new glasses will be ready by the time you’re done!

Our lab is run by a team of highly skilled optical technicians, and we make use of the latest technology to ensure we produce high quality lenses for your glasses.

Broken glasses? Let us help

Whether you’ve sat on them, dropped them or they’re simply a victim of wear and tear, it’s easy for glasses to get damaged. Don’t panic though – depending on the level and type of damage, we can either repair your frames, put new lenses in them, or if the damage is too bad to fix, you can choose a new pair and we’ll have them made up in no time with our same day service!

You can find out more here about our same day prescription glasses services. If you’re not sure whether your prescription can be made up on the same day or want to book an eye test, just give us a call on 0178 444 9992 or contact us online. Aside from Christmas and Boxing Day, we’ll be open as usual over Christmas!
