Two lenses and one frame offer a wide range of possibilities to create the perfect pair of optical glasses to suit your eyesight, your needs, and your styles! Behind their simple appearance, optical glasses hide an ancestral science in perpetual evolution.
Did you know that the word “optic” comes from Ancient Greek? And that the first optical research dates back to Egyptian and Babylonian times? Centuries of passion and expertise later, the optical field has come a long way. It now combines precision and performance, while adapting to our various lifestyles and offering addicting fashion styles, such as: pilot, wayfarer, or even round John Lennon glasses...
Nowadays, optical glasses offer increasingly advanced technologies to improve your vision, your health, and your everyday life. Furthermore, they have become essential accessories for all your outfits, with a whole new collection of frames every season. Prescription glasses can be adapted to suit your moods and your activities – both indoors and outdoors – and can help you create the type of personality you want to assert.
Whether you prefer retro, ultra-classic, sporty, round or aviator, frames can be eye-catching or completely unnoticeable. It is entirely up to you!
Neutral-coloured frames can be combined with any style. Black is a must-have in your eyewear wardrobe. For more fun, be bold and colourful with red, blue, or green and cameos, patchworks, or gradients. Gold and silver are also extremely fashionable.
Metal is a very popular material for women’s glasses, men's glasses, or children’s glasses: it is always a safe bet. Other materials, like titanium, are ultra lightweight as well as flexible and strong, making them ideal for meeting demanding expectations. Plastic can be adapted to every taste, and it is easy to shape. Thick frames are a charming nod to the 1960s, for example, especially when combined with a butterfly shape or Audrey Hepburn’s cat-eye look.
Depending on what you are looking for, your glasses can enhance or improve a specific feature of your face and even reveal a new facet. There is no single shape for a particular face, it is just a matter of creating different effects!
Whatever the shape of your face (round, angular or oval, to name but a few), Visilab experts in facial morphology are bound to surprise you! They have a good eye for matching your face and your look to frames that you would have never thought to try or have dared to wear. They have a knack for finding a pair of glasses in a particular style that will suit you down to the ground. It is all in the details...
Meet our experts in facial morphology, who will open a whole new field of possibilities for you! While waiting for your appointment, discover the virtual fitting to try on different models.
If Visilab is number one in Switzerland, it is because ever since our creation, we have chosen to address each and every one of you! Regardless of your age and degree of visual impairment, our expert opticians are there to meet all your optical needs (myopia, hyperopia, presbyopia, astigmatism, colour-blindness, or childhood myopia) and to help you to find the perfect lenses from our vast range.
Whether you suffer from myopia, astigmatism, or hyperopia, your Visilab optician has a solution for you. Our single-vision lenses correct both near and far vision, as well as vision that distorts or blurs contours and lines.
Single-vision lenses can be variable-tint lenses (photochromic) that adapt to different levels of light, thereby reducing discomfort caused by brightness.
Depending on your different activities and lifestyle, these lenses can be enhanced with anti-reflective, anti-scratch or anti-smudge coatings. If you are looking for eyewear to soothe your eyes while you work, our BlueProtect blue-violet light filtering solution is made for you.
The thinning levels of single-vision lenses can be adapted in line with your correction, the desired aesthetic result, and the chosen options and coatings.
Multifocal lenses correct presbyopia and help you to regain clear, comfortable vision at any distance with a single pair of glasses. No matter how close or far away the object you want to look at, with progressive lenses you will not need to keep taking off and replacing your glasses. You can enjoy ideal vision and comfort again!
Our single-vision and progressive lenses are available in solar versions so that you can spend time outdoors all year round with clear vision, optimum protection, and great comfort, whether in the mountains, at the seaside, in the city or in the countryside. We offer sports glasses (for hiking, sailing, golf, cycling, running, or trail running...) adapted to your eyesight.
Some visual problems are the direct result of eye disease. Bacterial conjunctivitis and glaucoma are two such diseases that can sometimes have serious consequences and that can only be diagnosed by an ophthalmic specialist. Therefore, we advise you to have your eyesight checked regularly by an ophthalmologist.
Of course, if you have any questions about eye diseases, your Visilab optician will be happy to assist you. However, as a precautionary measure, we advise you to consult your doctor or ophthalmologist as quickly as possible.
Do you have any doubts about your eyesight? Visilab can help you to determine whether you suffer from astigmatism, myopia, or hyperopia. Your distance vision, near vision, visual field, distance estimation and binocular vision can all be tested online. These tests can be used to identify visual deficiencies. They merely represent a general guide: tests performed professionally by your optician or ophthalmologist are the only way to establish your visual correction needs. Only an eye care professional can provide a full diagnosis of visual problems.
At Visilab, we offer a wide range of collections of frames created by iconic brands and recent designers. Are you looking for a vintage model, a pair of glasses that reminds you of your favourite film or transports you to the great outdoors? Persol or Ray-Ban will no doubt appeal to you with their iconic and timeless models.
Do you fancy Dior, Gucci, Burberry, or Prada glasses? Find all your favourite brands in one of our Visilab stores or on our website. For a bold or glamorous look, Guess what?
