Are you in for a Fabulous February? With half term looming large on the horizon, most parents’ thoughts inevitably turn to all the appointments that have to be fitted into the week. Dentist, haircuts, eye-tests?

All children under 16 are entitled to a free annual NHS eyetest and with our team of 5 Optometrists, we are very experienced in testing young eyes. We also have a dedicated Young Vision area in the practice, showcasing some of the amazing frames we have chosen especially to fit young faces. Ranges from Brands like Ray-Ban, Lacoste, Little Paul and Joe, Oakley, Basebox, Rockstar, and specialist paediatric eyewear brand Tomato Glasses mean that our dispensing opticians are able to find exactly the right frame for every face and prescription. Our unique service doesn’t end there, though. We upgrade every pair of lenses for our under 16s to Hoya Lenswear’s PNX material at no extra charge. These lenses are UV blocking, thinner and lighter than standard plastic and are so strong that they come with an anti-breakage guarantee, so however active your young ones are, their lenses will be up to the challenge! To ensure they stand out from the crowd, we can also offer a free range of engravings on the lenses. From their initials to something that represents their favourite hobby, we can deliver a pair of spectacles like no other! (This service is available to adults, too!).

Our Young Vision area has been designed to make our smaller spectacle wearers feel valued and put them at ease at what can be quite a nerve wracking time. Coupled with our Colorimetry service which offers specialist help to children and adults with Dyslexia, visual stress, ASD, migraines and sensitivity to Pattern Glare, booking in at Sheinman this half term could really change your whole experience of visiting the optician. With Kindles for the entertainment of siblings and Nespresso coffee and premium teas for the adults, you’ll really see what you’re missing when you experience eye care “Sheinman style”!

Trends for 2019 are heading towards lighter, finer frames with a strong emphasis on the customer having a something which is unique to them. Always at the forefront of fashion, we can now offer an extra level of personalisation to help achieve that individual look. A lot of frames have the option of a “groove colour” – an extra layer of colour applied to the edge of the lens to give a subtle definition to your chosen lens shape. If you have a favourite colour but don’t want it to be too in your face, groove colours give you the chance to add it in without overpowering your look. Ask one of our dispensing team to show you what you can achieve with this fun idea!
