Choose your style

With the majority of our faces covered by a mask most of the time, our eyes are doing all the talking these days.  This winter, make sure you dress them accordingly.  At Gavzey Opticians, not only do we advise you on the best lenses for your lifestyle, we also make sure your glasses offer the optimal fit for comfort and looks.

Whilst purchasing online seems very tempting during this pandemic, in reality we see how badly the glasses fit and vision is often not accurate.

We have gone to great length to ensure our practice is a safe place to buy glasses and you can feel confident to shop in person.  Every pair of glasses gets disinfected after being handled, every machine gets cleaned after use and all our staff wear PPE at all times.

Book your appointment to chat with one of our qualified dispensing opticians and speak to a pro.

Your hearing is as important as your sight.

Your hearing has never been more important.  With appointments and meetings being conducted online or on the phone and mask wearing compulsory when speaking in person, not hearing well has become a real issue.

The masks obscure sound and our ability to read lips, therefore making it much more difficult to understand what the other person is saying.  But there is no need to suffer in silence.  Get in touch to book your FREE hearing assessment, where we will be able to ensure the health of your ear as well as test your hearing.

With today’s technology, hearing aids are small and comfortable and almost invisible.

Patients who have recently updated their device have remarked that they hear the way they remember hearing before they had a hearing loss.

That’s because the processing power of today’s hearing aids is far beyond what older hearing aids could manage.  Everything has a natural crispness to it – and loud sounds are completely comfortable.  It can analyse the sound types and balance the background noise – which makes speech clearer and easier for you to be a part of the conversation.  And to simplify matters, they connect seamlessly to the phone or TV.   Smart hearing all the way.

See clearly – stay safe!

Wearing a face mask is not the most comfortable for anyone, but if you wear glasses too and can’t see out of them most of the time, you know exactly what we are talking about when we tell you we have the solution to fogged up lenses!


Shamir rose to the challenge and produced a lens with anti-fog properties.


With face masks here to stay for the interim, make sure your vision is as sharp as ever.


Who benefits from Shamir Glacier Anti-Fog?

Shamir Glacier Anti-Fog is suitable for anyone who regularly experiences rear lens surface fogging, including:


• Anyone who wears masks with glasses (sunglasses and eyewear)
• Medical teams that are required to wear a mask for long hours
• Those engaged in sports, both indoors and outdoors
• Work that involves strenuous activity
• Professions where safety glasses are required


For additional lens protection, we recommend combining Shamir Glacier Anti-Fog with one of Shamir’s advanced Glacier Plus coatings or Power Mirrors on the front surface of the lens.
