Benefit from the latest lens and 4D camera technology when you purchase contacts or prescription glasses. Based in Newcastle, For Beautiful Eyes offers top-of-the-range free form lenses that can be customised to suit your unique vision requirements.
In order to match you with the ideal lens, we utilise the state-of-the-art ImpressionIST 3 service terminal. Using unique dual camera technology, the ImpressionIST 3 produces precisely optimised lenses. These lenses will allow you to enjoy the maximum viewing area, both at a distance and close up, with minimal distortion.
After taking measurements, the machine will send data to a German optical lab, where your optimised lens will be expertly manufactured. You can then collect your contact lenses or prescription glasses from our practice in The Junction, Newcastle.
The lenses of your prescription glasses can be made from either glass or resin. Glass is harder, making it more scratch resistant and heavier. Resin is lighter and tougher, making it more impact resistant but also more likely to scratch than glass. While a lens material might be quite thick, the lens itself can be made thinner depending on its refractive index. Our team can recommend the best lens material for your requirements.
Lens coatings include anti-scratch, UV absorption, blue light absorption, and anti-reflex multicoat. For more information on the benefits of these coatings, speak to our team at your next appointment.

Spectacle lenses can be made from either glass or resin. Glass is harder, making it more scratch resistant and heavier. Resin is lighter and tougher making it more impact resistant, it’s softer property makes it more likely to scratch than glass. The refractive index of the lens material is derived by dividing the speed of light through air by the speed of light through the material. The higher the index of the lens the thinner the lens can be made. A lens that might be quite thick in a standard material can be significantly reduced in a higher index.
