Ordering Prescription Lenses with Seen

CAN WE ADD PRESCRIPTION LENSES TO YOUR GLASSES AND SUNGLASSES?

YES WE CAN. At Seen, we’re committed to enhancing the quality of your life by enhancing your vision. For that reason, we only use the highest quality lenses in our frames.

Find the available lenses for our glasses below, and our sunglasses lenses below those, as well as a quote for how much it will cost to get them fitted in your new glasses or sunglasses. As a fully functioning optician store here in Manchester, we have access to almost every lens type. If your request exists outside the options listed, drop us an email outlining the lenses you’re looking for.

Once you’ve decided on the lenses, reply to the email we sent you that included the link to this page and let us know what you’d like. One of our fully qualified professionals will look over your lens selection and your choice of eyewear and get back to you, either to confirm your prescription or to provide you with a bit of guidance on your selection.

Once your lenses have all been confirmed, the next job is to get them fitted. All our lenses are manufactured, cut, and finished into your new frame by specialist technicians who work to our high standards. We know what we’re doing when it comes to lenses.

GLASSES LENSES

STANDARD ANTI-REFLECTION COATED LENSES £105

Our standard optical lenses and our base price; any premium coatings and upgrades will be added on to this price. These feature a scratch-resistant and anti-reflection coating. 

PREMIUM COATING UPGRADE +£50

This enhances the scratch resistance of the coating to the highest level available on any plastic spectacle lens. It also gives you a one-use 2-year warranty against scratches. The coating is more oleophobic as well - which means water doesn't stick to the lens, if you were wondering -  and that makes them easier to clean and keep clean. If all that wasn’t enough, they also feature glare reduction technology which means fewer reflections and clearer vision. They sound good, don’t they?

DIGITAL BLUE FILTER UPGRADE +£50

This has the scratch-resistant and oleophobic properties of the premium coating but it cuts out blue light. Phones, laptops, and most other screens emit blue light which over stimulates the brain. This coating is great for those spending a lot of time on digital devices and can even help you sleep. It isn’t quite as good for night driving as the premium coating.

THIN LENS UPGRADE +£50

If your prescription is above +/- 2.00, we would advise choosing this option.

SUPER THIN UPGRADE +£120

If your prescription is above +/- 5.00, we would advise choosing this option.

TRANSITIONS +£75

Transition technology changes a clear lens to a dark lens when exposed to UV. So the lens is clear indoors and tinted outdoors. Instant sunglasses!

Colours available:

SUNGLASS LENSES

TINTED LENSES TO ANY COLOUR £140

Our standard sunglasses lenses and our base price; any premium coatings and upgrades will be added on to this price. We generally advise choosing the colour to match the original sunglass lens but if you prefer to mix things up, you can choose your lens colour and whether the tint is full or graduated. If you’re stuck, and you have questions about the available sunglasses tints, get in touch.

POLARISED UPGRADE +£55

This is the highest quality of lens tint you can wear for glare and brightness protection. Available in several colours. 

THIN SUNGLASS LENS UPGRADE +£50 

Like the glasses lenses, these are recommended if your prescription is above +/- 2.00.
