Our Lenses

Optical

Lenses are a serious business. We at Arlo Wolf take lenses very seriously and only work with the best UK laboratories. Don’t think because they are not costing a fortune that we don’t. Like our glasses, we use the best materials and as such your prescription glasses include lenses which are: thin, scratch resistant and have an anti-glare coating, as standard.

For particularly strong prescriptions there may be an extra charge for super thin and ultra thin lenses. As each eye prescription can vary substantially from one to the next, we prefer to price on an individual basis rather than issuing a one size fits all price list. This means our customers receive a price based on their exact prescription, not that of Sally’s down the road.

We will advise any additional charges ahead of ordering, and you can email a copy of your prescription to info@arlowolf.com for a quote.

We offer the following lens upgrades as standard, which can be selected in your basket. Even if we do say so ourselves, these are very good value in comparison to your high street optician:

  • Digital Media Lenses – Blue light or HEV (High Energy Visible) is part of the visible light spectrum which occurs naturally in daylight hours, or artificially from every day backlight digital devices including: laptops, tablets, computers and mobile phones. Excessive exposure to artificial blue light can cause tiredness, headaches, eye-strain and dizzy spells.We offer blue light blocking lenses for just £25 a pair. These are perfect for those who spend sustained periods of time using computers, smart phones, tablets or other digital media devices.
  • Varifocal Lenses – Varifocal lenses are ideal for people who need to regularly switch between long and short distances on a daily basis, as they contain your distance and reading prescription in one. You can add varifocal lenses to any of our styles for just £50 per pair.

We also offer an exhaustive list of lens packages. If you have any questions about your lenses or you would like a particular lens which you may currently wear, then please speak to one of our experts on 0161 915 7161 and we will be able to help.

Getting your lenses perfect is crucial, that’s why for some stronger prescriptions, we ask for a Pupillary Distance (PD) measurement. This allows us to craft your lenses to your exact requirement.

We recommend that every customer uses the PD tool to allow super accurate glazing, but we can glaze prescriptions up to +/- 3 SPH using the national average should you wish. For prescriptions stronger than +/-3 SPH we will need your PD measurement.

Sunglasses

All of our sunglass models come with UV400 lenses as standard.

You can add polarised lenses to your order at checkout. Polarised lenses eliminate glare and block 100% of UV rays and therefore are ideal for driving and outdoor sporting activities. Glare occurs when sunlight reflects from horizontal surfaces such as the road and water making it difficult to see.

You can also add coloured UV400 Mirror lenses at checkout.

Whilst we can accomodate most prescriptions, for those which are particularly strong there may be an additional charge for glazing. We will always disclose this to you ahead of finalising your order.
