Tailor makes a 6” Mistake


If you were measured to have something tailor made for you, would you expect to be delivered shoes that are 2 sizes too small for you, or trousers 6 inches too big? Of course not. Yet thousands of people wear spectacle lenses that are incorrect by at least 17%. A recent European Optometry study showed that the average error by a trained optician measuring a person for varifocals was 5mm per eye.

Buchanan Optometrists abandoned this inaccurate method 10 years ago, preferring instead to use a computerised measuring system that not only measures your pupil position to within 0.1mm but also takes into account several other measurements such as how the spectacle frame sits on your face. We are all different, so any frame you put on will sit differently.  the distance the frame sits from your face, the angle of the frame, the curve of the frame, how your eyes work binocularly together.

UK are off-the-shelf designs with your prescription added to it - a crazy idea considering we all have different jobs, hobbies and lifestyles. Our varifocals are not off-the-shelf designs tailor made and completely individualised for you taking into account what you want to do with your lenses, your work, your lifestyle and leisure activities. Taking into account your precise computerised measurements and prescription.
