On completion of the clinical examination, great care in frame selection and accurate measurements for the manufacturing process is taken. Sophisticated software on the practice’s iPad is applied in the measuring and design of the spectacle lenses, based on your unique visual requirements. The spectacles are then electronically ordered from our reputable international lens manufacturer via an online order system by Nhlanhla. The lens manufacturer uses state of the art machinery to generate each lens individually. Once completed, the lenses are transferred to the local branch where they are rechecked against the order for accuracy and frame glazing. Once production is complete, the spectacles are delivered to our practice for final verification of manufacture accuracy including prescription, pupil settings, and lens type, tint, coatings and pantascopic angles. An appointment for the patient to collect and have the spectacles correctly dispensed is then confirmed.
E K Botha Optometrists have an in-house spectacle workshop which includes a comprehensive range of stock lenses, sophisticated marking and glazing machinery. The frame shape is electronically traced into the edger. This combination allows for same day service of prescriptions for low to moderate myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Prescriptions can be made up according to authentic Doctors prescriptions.
