About 10 years ago, Martyn our Dispensing Optician , was stung badly by a Purple-Stinger Jellyfish, whilst swimming off the coast of Ibiza . From then on, he has armed himself with a decent pair of Polarised sunglasses and become the ‘Chief Jellyfish Watcher’ on all subsequent holidays. By eliminating the reflections on the water, with the special lenses, you can actually see a few feet into the clear sea and avoid the dreaded stingers , whilst also being able to see the lovelier aquatic life.
Martyn, also keeps a pair of Polarising Sunnies in the car, often relying on them to prevent headaches and hazardous glare, when the sun miraculously emerges.
So if you would like to have high contrast, perfect, glare-free vision then pop in and see us. We have our new 2018 range of Polarising and Prescription Sunglasses in stock for you to try . We hope to see you in store soon.

Well what a busy week ! Lots of eye tests,happy patients and new Christmas windows. We have entered into our lovely town of Coggeshall’s Christmas window competition. To go along with our town the theme is Medieval,which is not easy in an Opticians (don’t think Opticians were around then ).So decided to go with a nod to it, by using natural decorations and medieval colours . Lots of painting and reef making later and voila all done . Hope our customers and the judges like them .
