"I have suffered from multiple sclerosis for the last 20 years and have just recently collected my new pair of copper mesh spectacles, they have eliminated the motion sickness I used to get in the car so now I do not get car sick anymore!"
Mrs L, Bearsted

"The glasses worked very well, they not only helped to relax the eyes but also, with the addition of the UV layer, helped to relax the surroundings to help tackle symptoms such as headaches and lack of focus, improving the ability to work on the computer whilst wearing them. Thanks so much to Kings Hill Opticians for their help."
Miss A, West Malling

"As a busy PA to a managing director, I spend all my time on computers.  My Copper Mesh glasses have eliminated my eye strain, my tired eyes, I find them more comfortable and I feel more relaxed whilst wearing them and seem to frown less.  If they reduce my lines around my eyes and I don't need botox, I will be even happier!

Thank you to the team at Kings Hill Opticians!"

Ms Z Gillings

"Excellent service. Due to having Fibromyalgia my eyes are very sensitive to bright lights causing me to get severe headaches and migraines making every day activities such as shopping unpleasant. The staff recommended trialing the Copper Mesh lenses to see if that would help. I have since brought a pair of glasses with these lenses and they have made such a difference. I have since been shopping in the same shops and the experience has been much more pleasant. The glare from my phone and tablet is also reduced when I wear my glasses, again making computer work more pleasant. I would definitely recommend :)"

Nicola Galea - Google Review

"Dear Mr Gill

Many thanks for introducing me to your Copper Mesh glasses.  Since being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 23 years ago, I have experienced motion sickness on car journeys. With the use of these glasses this problem has been totally eliminated.

I also find them calming and relaxing in general wear from the moment I put them on.

Again, many thanks"

Theresa Lockhead

"As somebody who uses the computer all day, every day, I find when I am not wearing my Copper Mesh glasses my eyes feel like they are on fire.

Having been recently diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome these glasses are such a relief."

Mrs E.R. 

"As a professional driver I have found that my migraines have reduced significantly since wearing my Copper Mesh glasses all the time."

Mr J Tillett

"After recently having an eye operation the Copper Mesh glasses have improved my night driving by 30%."

Mr A Petty

"Previously a lot of motorway night driving left my visually fatigued. But a more recent 250 mile night drive wearing my Copper Mesh glasses left me visually and physically more confident and relaxed.  I would confidently recommend Copper Mesh glasses to anyone who is having problems with night driving."

F N Email

"My son was having problems at school with his reading. He had a visual stress assessment which was inconclusive.  He now wears Copper Mesh glasses all the time and has moved up a set in reading already within 6 weeks."

Mrs S Toor

"We have definitely seen amazing results with our son's reading and writing skills since using his 'magic specs' as he calls them."

"Our patient who has had a stroke which left her vision 'patchy' tried Copper Mesh over her prescription and started crying.  When asked she said it was because the filter had made her vision complete, and the holes in her vision had been filled in.  She movingly said that 'she had got her vision back!'"

"Our patient who was unable to tolerate PC screen glare, also having a history of headaches, is now much more comfortable wearing her Copper Mesh prescription."

"Our patient who works on computers in a windowless office, suffered from headaches and eye strain which were banished when wearing Copper Mesh glasses."

"One of our patients had recently been diagnosed with solar urticaria from Guys Hospital in London and has had lupus for a number of years whilst experiencing a lot of issues with glare said 'thank you to Kings Hill Opticians for helping with the Copper Mesh glasses and with the forms'."
