Varilux Specialist Glazing Lab

At Williams Optometrists, we are extremely proud of our on site specialist glazing lab and tint workshop based at our Benfleet practice. Here our team can offer a same day glazing and tinting sunglass service and provide prompt solutions to any damaged or broken spectacles. Where possible, repairs will be made on site, within minutes.


We decided that our patients deserve the best and have also invested much into ensuring we have the optimum equipment to assess the health of our patient’s eyes, such as our retinal camera and visual fields machines. These are vital tools our specialist professional team of qualified staff can use to detect potential eye diseases ensuring prompt referral when necessary to help prevent permanent damage and loss of sight. Our professional team thrives on resolving complex prescriptions and adapting frames to fit those patients with physiological complications and enjoy demonstrating their commitment in offering our patients both the benefit of their knowledge in the latest product advancements in optics and in discussing the optimum solution for each of our patient’s visual requirements.
