Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) capability now available at Unia Opticians.

OCT is an imaging method which is similar to ultrasound but works with light waves rather than sound. It can aid the early detection of diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration.

This straightforward and non invasive way of assessing detail of the retina can be used to evaluate the ocular health of both adults and children.

We are now pleased to offer an OCT scan as an extra service alongside the existing thorough eye examination.

Please visit or call the store for further details.


Lindberg buffalo horn frames now in stock.

We are excited to announce we are now stockists of Lindberg buffalo horn and wood+ horn frames.

The materials are ethically sourced, and each frame is unique.

The front of a horn frame is made of layers of laminated buffalo horn, a natural and porous material. It is impossible to produce two identical fronts. The colour choices are  light brown, medium brown, dark brown and deep black, depending on which part of horn they are taken from. Each frame will vary in texture.

Wood + horn (TRÆ + BUFFALO) fronts are made of one layer of timber (Olive, Padauk, Ebony or Smoked Oak) and a multilayer of buffalo horn-backing.

Because they are natural materials, both horn and wood+horn fronts need to be kept hydrated, as they tend to dehydrate with time. Each frame is supplied with a care kit, and we offer an annual service to ensure the quality is maintained.
