In the summer of 2013 we invested heavily in a manufacturing laboratory. This has enabled us to take out the ‘middle man’ and manufacture lenses ourselves. Subsequently, we are the only Opticians in Consett (and one of only a small number in the UK) that are able to manufacture and supply on the same day:
- high prescriptions (especially for children’s glasses)
We supply lenses to other Opticians and so needless to say, we are extremely competitive.
