As an independent optician we take pride in offering a diverse range of eyewear products and services, handpicking the finest brands that meet our stringent criteria. We are thrilled to announce that we have partnered with Optiswiss to bring the latest Swiss optical technology to our clients.
Switzerland has long been synonymous with precision and high-quality craftsmanship. From Watches to Chocolate, the tradition of Swiss craftsmanship has been handed down through generations, fostering a culture of excellence that is deeply ingrained in every aspect of production. As the number one manufacturer of opthalmic lenses in Switzerland, Optiswiss lenses proudly carry this legacy of Swiss craftsmanship, embodying the spirit of innovation and excellence. Each lens is crafted with utmost care and expertise, using advanced techniques that have been perfected since the company’s conception in 1937.
Established in the picturesque city of Basel, Switzerland, where the lenses are still manufactured today; Optiswiss is one of the few totally independent lens companies left globally. Their factory utilises the latest generation technology and has the most modern automation system in Europe. Waste water and heat is recycled and reused throughout operation making the factory as sustainable as it is cutting edge. You may think Worle High Street in Weston-super-Mare has little in common with the majestic mountains and storybook beauty of Basel, Switzerland but we certainly share the same values of community and independence.
Optiswiss is renowned for crafting precision varifocal lenses that seamlessly blend multiple prescriptions into one, enabling clear vision at all distances. These cutting-edge lenses offer wearers supreme comfort and clarity, making them a top choice for those seeking superior vision correction. With four varifocal designs available, there is sure to be something for every client and their individual needs.
Optiswiss occupational lenses are designed with precision to support the demands of the user at closer working distances. These lenses offer customised solutions for tasks requiring precise focus at intermediate (desk top) and close (reading) distances. Whether for office work, crafting or healthcare, Optiswiss occupational lenses ensure clear vision and reduced eye strain, enhancing productivity and comfort.
Optiswiss sport-specific lenses are engineered to optimise athletic performance. These specialised lenses provide enhanced contrast, reduced glare, and are impact resistance for a variety of sports including cycling, golf, and skiing. With their durability and tailored vision solutions, Optiswiss sport lenses empower athletes to excel and enjoy their chosen activities safely, and with optimum clarity.
In addition to a large number of anti-reflection layers, Optiswiss’s premium coatings also consist of a hydrophobic, antistatic and hard layer. This makes the lens water and dust repellent and protects it against scratches and signs of abrasion.
Optiswiss lenses with Optiplas O+ (anti refelction coating) have a residual reflection of 0.2%. With conventional coatings, this value is 1.2%. The result is maximum brilliance and contrast perception.
In our diverse everyday life, both UV protection and blue light protection have become indispensable. The Optiplas Dual+ UV and Optiplas Blue-CXUV finishes offer the respective solution for protected vision in everyday life for every Optiswiss lens.
