Need new glasses but worried about the cost?

The Optical Shop

Come and have a chat with Steve, Bowie, or Bracken at The Optical Shop in Waipapa!

We have a full optical lab facility and hundreds of glasses between $29 and $69.
You’ll save hundreds of dollars on new glasses WE PROMISE!

All single vision glasses we can do in just an hour – no more waiting!

And if you have a favourite pair but need new lenses, yes we do heaps of reglazing, it’s just $50.

Progressives from $90, sunglass tinting $50… we can do almost anything!

You do need to bring a copy of your prescription, however, if you don’t have this, if you have a pair of glasses already we can usually use our equipment to read the prescription from the lenses.

We also do a huge range of contact lenses! If you already wear them, bring in your box or lens blisters and we’ll compare them. Our lenses are typically around half price compared to most other retailers.

How do we have such low prices? We do all the lens fitting ourselves and we buy almost everything we sell directly from the manufacturers so we’re cutting out a LOT of cost that usually goes into a pair of glasses.

We’re at 2052 State Highway 10, Waipapa or call 0800 119 830

All of the objects in space are represented with rich sounds as well as with incredible visuals. The audience can listen to the stars appear and hear the planets orbit around their heads.
