Spectacle Frames

Whether you are choosing a spectacle frame for the first time or have been wearing spectacles for years we can help and advise you on what will look great, fit well and be suitable for your prescription and lens choice.

Our qualified Dispensing Opticians and Dispensing Assistants have the experience to help you select the correct frame shape and size for your face, colour for your complexion and style to suit you. Spectacle frames should enhance your look, be comfortable and practical to wear and most importantly make you feel good.

Cargills optometrists have a wide range of frame styles from the latest brands and designers to more modest budget frames, all of great quality.

We also offer a range of male, female, unisex frames & sunglasses from Sea2See that reuse old fishing nets for their frame material.

If you are looking for a stylish rimless frame, half-eye, contemporary chunky plastic or just a sturdy reader we have a range choice for you.  We also stock specialist ‘Flexon’ strong frames, frames with magnetic sun-clips and Hypoallergenic frames should you react with certain materials.

Children's Frames

We think our children’s frame range is great, it’s colourful and fun. Many of our frames are wholly funded by the NHS voucher scheme, or you can use your voucher value towards a higher value cost pair. We even have some themed frames that your child will recognise, so they will be spoilt for choice!

Young Persons/Adolescent range of frames

Fashionable styles with some recognisable brands like ‘Bench’ and ‘Animal’ means there will be a great choice for you to choose from.



Through the natural wearing of spectacles and accidents frames can get mis-shapen and screws loosen. Any further adjustments to your child’s spectacles are included in our service. If the frame has been broken or lost they can often be replaced using a special NHS repair voucher, just pop in to your local practice and we will help you, no appointment is necessary.


Coloured Overlays

Cargills opticians can also test your child for Visual Stress, ‘photopic sensitivity’ also known as Meares Irlen syndrome, which is often associated with Dyslexia. This can affect your child’s ability to read due to the appearance of printed text looking too bright causing words and letter to move about the page. Coloured overlays of a specific colour can help reduce this effect and reading performance can improve dramatically. After a coloured overlay has been proven to help we can test to see which colour in tinted spectacles would offer the same benefit using our Colourimeter, the colour of an overlay and that of a tinted lens are not always the same!

Please read more about Coloured Overlays and Colorimetry in or Specialist Services pages.
