At Mallon+Taub, we use ophthalmic lenses made by leading Japanese and German lens manufacturers. Most of our lenses are made by SEIKO Optical. These lenses are manufactured in Japan using technologically advanced lens materials and are the result of the latest research and development in the field of optics. In our specialist Glazing Laboratory, we stock an extensive range of single-vision prescription lenses, including ultra-thin lenses for short-sighted and long-sighted spectacles prescriptions. All of our lenses have a scratch resistant coating and special anti reflection coating.
After years of research and many innovations, the single-vision lenses available today offer superior quality and design and provide superb comfort for the user. These lenses can be up to 50% thinner and 45% lighter than standard plastic lenses. Their ultra-thin profile improves the design and the appearance of your spectacles. Aspheric and double aspheric lens technology provide clearer vision over the entire surface of the lens, giving the wearer a larger distortion-free field of vision. At Mallon + Taub, we use the best, custom-made designs for our single aspheric and double aspheric lenses.
Single vision lenses are used to correct vision for either far or near distance. Around the age of forty, many people develop presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition in which the lens of the eye loses its ability to focus, making it difficult to see objects up close. Progressive, or varifocal lenses provide excellent near, intermediate and far vision, all in one lens, so the wearer does not need to take their spectacles off and on. Because they are made according to your specific requirements, our SEIKO progressive lenses guarantee comfortable vision for any activity, including leisure and sports.
Some spectacles and sunglasses frames have a higher base curve or they are made in the wrap-around style, which can make it difficult to fit them with standard type lenses. Curving the lens to accommodate the shape of the frame can result in distorted vision at the edges of the lens. Here, at Mallon+Taub, we use the latest generation of curved ophthalmic lenses, like the new SEIKO SPORTSTECH lenses, as a solution to the problem. These lenses enable the wearer to see clearly right up to the edges of the lenses and create a clear vision over the entire lens, even when it is fitted into a highly curved, wrap-around style frame. These spectacles and sunglasses lenses are extremely thin, lightweight and impact resistant and they provide protection from wind, dust and UV light. They are available in a variety of colours/tints. At the moment, these lenses are not available for all spectacles prescriptions and we will advice you on their suitability.
We provide the highest quality of service to all our clients. Our technicians specialise in technically demanding tasks that require meticulous attention to detail and the highest level of expertise. We specialise in wrap-around style frames, rimless eyewear and handmade horn frames. In particular, we pride ourselves on the fast and efficient service that we provide.
In our glazing laboratory, we use the latest, sophisticated Nidek glazing equipment to cut lenses to fit your spectacles or sunglasses. We have a large range of single-vision SEIKO ophthalmic lenses, including ultra-thin lenses for higher spectacles prescription. This enables us to produce, upon request, and very often on the same day, a ready-to-wear pair of spectacles with your prescription. This service is available Monday to Friday 10-4pm.
