Spectacle lenses at Jacksons

Are your glasses too thick? Are they heavy and uncomfortable?

Do you feel you don’t see as well as you should in your glasses?

Do you struggle with specific visual tasks like computer screens or small print?


Choosing the wrong spectacle lenses can lead to disappointment in your eyewear. Sore noses, rubbed ears, feeling you would like to see just a bit better – these are things that patients frequently mention when we ask them about their experience with previous pairs of glasses.

We work with premium lens providers Essilor to offer you your best visual solution. Let us recommend the best type of lens for your prescription and visual needs.



This dictates the purpose of the lens and is governed by your prescription and lifestyle. Yor lens could be single vision, varirifocal or bifocal for example.


The look, weight and resilience of your glasses will depend on what material the lens is made from.

Lens tech

Eliminate surface reflections, block UV, improve clarity of vision and protect your eyes from damaging radiation.


But don’t worry about these things. We will talk with you to discover how you want your glasses to work for you and what problems you have had in the past. We will then be able to recommend the best lens for you and your specific visual needs.

There are many things to consider when choosing a lens. Let our experienced team guide you through the process.


Essilor Visioffice

The Visioffice X puts our patients at the heart of the lens measuring process. The Visioffice X is comfortable and accurate and brings a new experience to having lenses perfectly measured for your eyes. The animations displayed on the Visioffice X screens allow you to immediately understand the benefits personalised lenses bring.

The Visioffice has three personalisation measurements for greater accuracy and personalisation.

Eyecode™ technology: which measures the exact position of the Eye Rotation Centre. This helps in placing the distance and near vision centre of the lens in exactly the right place for the wearer.

Near Vision Behaviour: a simple task measured to understand how you naturally use your eyes. Do you move your eyes when you read or do you move your head or a bit of both? Do you hold the text in front of you or slightly offset to the left or right? Are you a detailed reader or do you skim read?

This information influences the location size and shape of the reading portion of the lens and provides better adaption of your new lenses when you first begin to use them.

H3D analysis: analyses your natural posture, the way in which you hold your head and the way the frame fits you to ensure better visual comfort when using your glasses.
