Express lenses

Speedy solutions for when time is of the essence. Same Day glasses available.

Express glazing and repairs for emergencies from our on-site lens lab – because there are times when you really do need a quick fix.


What we offer

Emergency repairs and single-vision lenses, cut in our on-site lens lab to fit your frames in super-quick time – even on the same day.

Why you should

Because you need a reliable emergency solution while you wait for your bespoke lenses to be created, or because you need a single-vision lens in a hurry.

Why Kings Hill Opticians’

Our expert Dispensing Opticians and Lab Technicians are highly skilled and experienced at cutting lenses and advising which lenses will work in particular frames. 

Our onsite glazing lab

We know that mistakes can happen, so if you crack your lenses, just pop into Kings Hill Opticians – we hold simple prescriptions in stock for replacements as you wait.

If your prescription isn’t currently stored with us, don’t worry, we have an onsite glazing lab which allows us to cut simple prescription lenses in house. This means you only have to wait from one hour before your replacement lenses are fitted!

Our fast-track service for complex prescriptions

For the more complex lenses such as the Varilux X series, we are able to fast-track the replacement lenses of our existing customers with the manufacturer*. This means you get to jump the queue and have your replacement lenses with you in 72 hours. This requires us to pay a small fee on top of the cost of production, but you only pay for the lenses.

*We are only able to fast track production with our UK-based manufacturers.

Our repair service

Many opticians don’t repair glasses in store, but our instore repair lab allows us to fix simple problems, such as missing nose pads and screws, as you wait.

If your problem can’t be repaired in the Kings Hill Opticians practice, we will happily send your glasses to the manufacturer to be repaired within 3 days.

If you have a problem with your glasses, just pop in store and ask for Matt.



"Super-fast service and I was even able to get my new lenses fitted the same day. Very informative as well; not only did they test my eyesight, Mr Shocker also answered all my questions about the eye itself. Thank you very much Kings Hill Opticians, definitely recommend."

Nicole Finch


“I usually only wear glasses for when I am driving however I woke up yesterday morning to find that my glasses has been chewed up by my dog, meaning it wasn’t safe enough for me to drive. I needed a fast solution to get a new pair as soon as possible so I visited Kings Hill Opticians, which my dad has been visiting for multiple years now and told them my situation. Mr Shoker kindly gave up his lunch break to test my eyes and give me a brand-new prescription. The rest of the staff at Kings Hill Opticians were kind enough to help me find a new pair of glasses to wear and put my new lenses in the frame as soon as possible. I am sitting here writing this less than 24 hours later with my new glasses on thanks to them.

Excellent and fast customer service and I would definitely recommend Kings Hill Opticians to anyone.”
