Frames & Lenses


We carry an extensive selection of frames to suit all pockets from budget through to designer.

These include Superdry, Silhouette, Lindberg, Swarovski, Police, Ronit F├╝rst and many more.

We also stock a wide range of sunglasses, including the Adidas sports range, that can be glazed with your prescription to suit your leisure or sporting needs.

After care is important to us, so we advise our patients to call in whenever needed to see one of our dispensers to have adjustments carried out to keep frames fitting correctly.


Gathercole & Ward Optometrists is a designated Varilux Specialist Centre, giving access to their entire range of lenses.

As Independent Optometrists we are able to supply lenses from most lens manufacturers, for example Shamir, Essilor, Nikon, Rodenstock and Zeiss, giving us the flexibility to select the most suitable lens for every situation and frame choice.

Continuing development in lens technology means most lenses can be made thinner and lighter giving improved comfort and durability, especially when combined with anti-reflection and scratch-resistant coatings.
