NEW RANGE OF RIMLESS IN STOCK

A new range of rimless frames are now in stock at Buckingham Opticians.  Rimless frames are very lightweight and blend in to the face.  As the bridge and sides are mounted into holes drilled through the lenses, ordinary plastic lenses are not suitable; however, we can use different lens materials such as polycarbonate, Trivex or 1.67.  The new range of Whisper rimless glasses are available complete with frame, stock polycarbonate lenses and anti-reflective coating for just £149.

For higher lens powers, bifocals or varifocals, please just pop in or ring us for a quote.

REYKJAVIK EYES TITANIUM FRAMES

We believe revolutionary technology is only worthwhile if it benefits the wearer.
This technology is revolutionary:

Flexible, ultra-light and extra-strong frames made from a single piece of titanium;
Hypo-allergenic silicon-based nosepads and end tips;
All the weaknesses of traditional spectacle frames eliminated - no screws, no joints - frames which are high tech and low maintenance.

Award-winning screwless design.


But what does that mean for you?
Light: 
Reduced pressure on the nose, so they are more comfortable;
Strong: 
No joints means no weak points, and no screws to wear loose. Absorb shocks easily.
Stylish: 
Cool, clean and unique. Contemporary Scandinavian design.

With no screws or hinges, Reykjavik Eyes frames are simply a groundbreaking design.

The Designer - Gunnar Gunnarson

 

Gunnar Gunnarson grew up working in his parents’ opticians in Iceland. Spending his summer holidays replacing lost screws and working on broken glasses, he experienced firsthand the failings of so many spectacle frames. He was inspired to find a better solution.
His ingenious idea? A completely screwless frame which eliminates all the weak points of traditional glasses.

Gunnar spent over three years designing, testing and refining this award winning concept.

The result is Reykjavik Eyes: one of the lightest and strongest frames ever made.

Award-winning design

Upon its launch in 2009, Reykjavik Eyes was recognised as a true innovation in eyewear design, drawing accolades and winning awards for the combination of technology, wearability and style.

The Red Dot Design Award
Reykjavik Eyes was awarded the Red Dot Design Award from the world’s largest and most distinguished product design competition. Established in 1955, and attracting entries from 49 nations, the Red Dot Design Award is regarded as an international seal of design quality.

The universal design award
The Reykjavik Eyes frame also won a universal design award, judged annually by a panel of expert architects and designers. The competition has a design philosophy that focuses on people, recognising Reykjavik Eyes as a cutting-edge product which is all about the user.
