State Of The Art In-House Optical Lab

Speed - 1 hour service if you have an emergency!

We understand accidents happen or if you have an emergency we have an onsite glazing lab and a large bank of lenses covering over 90% of prescriptions. Allowing us to make up glasses for distance or reading within 1 hour!

For varifocals, we can offer an Urgent service, with new glasses completed and ready within 2 working days. This service covers a wide selection of our best varifocal lenses, including a wide prescription range, thinned down and Light 2 Dark lenses. Contact us for more details.


At Airedale Opticians we have invested in advanced glazing equipment which allows us to cut and tint lenses for the majority of frames in-practice, rather than having to send them away for assembly. This speeds up the process and allows us much more control over the finished product, helping us to ensure they exceed your expectations in quality, design and accuracy.


If you choose rimless glasses or select half-rim designs, we are able to offer you a range of lens customisation options. Our glazing machine can cut lenses to any shape and size, so if you like the idea of classically rounded, or distinctive hexagonal lenses, we can cut the lenses to fit.

We can also tint lenses in-house and can offer a wide range of colours, beyond the normal grey and brown. Consider a yellow tint to enhance contrast while driving, an orange tint for target sports or a pink tint for that classic rose tinted look. We can also provide tints to aid with dyslexia and Irlen Syndrome, see our Visual Stress Testing page, or ask in practice for more details.
