The May Review……

Its been a while since our last blog post in early April, lots has happened since then and we now find ourselves at the end of May! (both politically and calendar wise).

Gucci Open day

At the end of April we hosted our Gucci open day, which was a brilliant success so we thank everyone who came down for a glass of prosecco and a look at the fantastic range. On the day we had a raffle for a Seiko Watch and I’m delighted to say that Karen Brooks was the lucky winner, please see her pictured wearing her new Gucci sunglasses collecting her watch! It was great to see so many of you at the event and we hope to do more similar events in the future.


Acuvue Oasys with Transitions


We’re extremely excited to announce the launch of Acuvue Oasys with Transitions to be available later this spring, as with spectacle lenses the new contact lens technology will adapt to different lighting conditions. Acuvue Oasys with Transitions is a first-of-its-kind contact lens that goes beyond vision correction, seamlessly adapting to changing light. By automatically balancing the amount of indoor and outdoor light entering the eye, including filtering blue light and blocking UV rays, Acuvue Oasys with Transitions helps reduce the stressful impact that light can have on your eyes.

For more information please give us a call or contact us via email or Facebook.

New Mens frames


We’re delighted to welcome two new exciting mens optical brands into the practice, the first being Morel Lightec.The story of Morel begins in 1880: it is, above all, one of a passionate family who has imagined and created glasses, spanning four generations. Through smart design, innovation, and high standards, Morel eyeglasses are deeply rooted in a bespoke design language. More than just a name, Morel has a backstory, a craftmanship know-how, values, and the ambition of becoming France’s best renowned eyewear manufacturer around the world. Rich from its heritage but also from its avant-garde spirit, Morel has, over the years, launched iconic models that have furthered boundaries in the eyewear world. Always on the lookout for the latest innovations, Morel delights in surprises, designing glasses that are astonishing and comfortable with cutting-edge designs. This spirit is particularly apparent in its Lightec collection: pure concentrated technology. The use of high quality stainless steel allows the frames to be extremely strong and lightweight, with patented screwless hinge technology, Morel have created durable and fashionable frames.

Carrera is the second new brand that we have welcomed into CATS and it is a real hit already! The skullgrip sides are perfect for the active man whilst also providing a secure fit, with the iconic Carrera flag on all the frames that adds a hint of red. With an ever-growing presence in the UK after dominating Europe already this is a brand that is going places, its also seen on the new Alfa Romeo team in F1 and has links with motor racing dating back to the 1950s with Porsche racing.
