Independent Opticians in Harborne

Your eyewear has never been in safer hands. From timeless styles, to heavier acetate frames we offer a full range of frames, hand-picked for their quality materials, award-winning design and shared ethos with us.

Rimless styles are catered for with two of the oldest names in Eyewear: Lindberg and Silhouette. These manufactures both focus on weight and have consistently produced the best rimless frames out there.

Heavy full rim frames can also be found in several of our ranges. However styles don’t actually have to be heavy — have a look at the amazing 3D printed MYKITA MYLON frames, made from a material that is 2/3rds the weight of an acetate frame. They are bold frames with a distinctive look.

Metal frames have been the main stay of what is out there. However, not all metal styles are born equal. In fact, most are mass-produced in the same way that they have been for decades. This mass production means a limitation on styles and colours that can be formed. Ørgreen, Götti and MYKITA all pride themselves on their manufacturing methods. So, your next pair of frames will not only be a little different in look — with some amazing design features — but light, durable and effortless to wear.

Looking after your specs is important to us

This is a little story one of our favourite clients told us, and it seems to fit the bill here:

“I recently picked up my new specs from Brittain Opticians, the vision is great and I’m getting lots of admiration from friends and family about how great they look, I’ve remembered to tell everyone where I got them from!

Then a couple of weeks go by and the lenses don’t seem as clear, and I think ,”I wonder why”? Then I remember they need cleaning, so I think back to the advice given by the nice lady in the shop about how best to clean them. I’ve been on holiday since then and mainly been wearing my new sunnies, which are great but now I can’t remember what she said…………”

With this in mind we decided to write a care guide for your specs, these simple things will keep your glasses in great shape and make sure you get the best vision.

1. Clean them daily, using a cleaning spray and clean cloth
It’s really easy to forget to clean your cloth, this makes a big difference to how well it works, most cloths can be cleaned on a low temp wash. If you do this monthly they will work great, normally cloths need replacing annually. Using the spray as opposed to water is important too as it maximises how well the coating on your specs works.
When cleaning your specs it is really important to make sure that you have removed anything that may scratch the lens, either on the lens or cloth. Avoid using tissues and paper towels too.

2. Avoid big changes in temperature
This has the effect of breaking down the coating on your glasses. Avoid using hot water, leaving your specs on your car dash board or on top of a hot radiator.

3. Keep them in the case when not in use
Avoid placing the glasses lens side down.

4. Six monthly FREE service
Come in and we will check your frame over to make sure nothing needs replacing. We’ll give them a deep clean using our ultrasonic cleaner and also refit your glasses to make sure there working just right.

5. When removing your specs…
…avoid putting pressure on joints by taking them off with both hands, and avoid putting them on top of your head.
