gettext.alts.lab_manager

While we have 3 global laboratories, our main glazing facility is based at our head offices in Westgate on Sea (UK). This is made up from a team of highly trained expert lab technicians who are overseen by our lab manager, Scott, whom has exceptional attention to detail and a wealth of knowledge with over 15 years experience in a laboratory environment at high street opticians Vision Express.

THE LAB PROCESS...

After your order is received, your lenses and frames are picked from our warehouse (or ordered in especially) and sent to our cutting edge laboratory where your order is handled by our expert lab technicians. With a little magic and possibly some fairy dust, your new glasses are born.

The process goes a little something like this...

gettext.alts.frames_traced

Frames traced and lenses cut

We prepare your frames and lenses, these are then fed through our high-tech machinery where the lenses are cut ready for assembly.

gettext.alts.lenses_fitted

Lenses fitted to frame

Your lenses and cleaned up then carefully fitted to your shiny new frames.

gettext.alts.packaged_ready
