We specialise in niche eyewear so our frames are superior quality, handmade, of fantastic design and different from the usual main stream brands. So they do cost more than the normal designer brand names that are mass produced and that you see everywhere. (See The Truth About Designer Glasses)
Our frames start at around £300, the most common price point of our collections is around £400 and for more exclusive and luxury pieces there are plenty of choices at the higher end of the spectrum! But if you have a budget in mind of £300 or so for your frame we’ll be able to show you plenty of options.
The lenses we work with are also the highest quality available so that our clients benefit from the best possible vision. However, our dispensing opticians will consult with you and find out exactly what you need in terms of your visual requirements, what you use your eyes for every day, and they’ll be able to make recommendations and give you several options based on your preferences and your prescription. Lens technology continues to keep advancing and improving and it’s just a case of deciding what’s best for you in terms of the quality and grade of lens that you want versus how much you want to spend on your eyewear.
If you wear distance vision or near vision glasses our premium lenses start at £170 and go up to £475. There are basic single vision lenses available from £95.
If you wear varifocals you can expect to spend £465 to to £635 for our premium lenses depending on your prescription requirements. Our basic varifocals start from £245 including lens coatings.
Another bit of information that might be helpful for your search for new glasses is the average amount a new client spends when they come to Jones And Co. for the first time. Some will spend less, some will spend more, but this is the average.
The average amount a new client with single vision glasses spends at Jones And Co. is £600 total.
And for clients that need varifocals the average they spend is £800 total.
For most people this is more than what have spent in other opticians but they feel they are getting a lot more for their money at Jones And Co. Read our Google reviews and you’ll find plenty of new customers who say they spent more but it was absolutely worth it for them because they enjoy wearing their glasses far more than before.
Before coming here, many of our clients had been disappointed with their glasses in the past, so they would rather invest a bit more to get something that they actually feel good in, considering they will likely wear their glasses every day for 2 or 3 years or longer.
So, I hope that’s helpful. If you’re still not sure and need to consider it I’d encourage you to come in for a free consultation, get a feel for exactly what options you have with no obligation. Even if you decide Jones And Co. isn’t the right place for you, you’ll get good practical advice that will help you wherever you finally choose to get your glasses from.
We’ll always consult with you and give you several frame and lens options and guidance as to what will work best for you. In addition to choices when it comes to how much you invest in your eyewear, we also can spread the payments for your glasses over 3 to 6 months with no extra cost and with no hassle. That way you can get the glasses that are best for you without having to compromise or delay.
