Martin Reynolds Opticians Established in 1986, Martin Reynolds Opticians has been providing the highest quality optical service for over 25 years. Based in Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire, our intimate practice provides a professional environment for eye examinations and a stylish space to choose from our very wide and frequently enhanced designer range of spectacles. The practice is located in North Street alongside the main banks, and is easily accessible on the ground floor for disabled and wheelchair bound people.

RGP lenses are not dispensed/recommended as much as they should be as they are more complex to fit, and require a period of adaptation for comfort. Visual Acuity: RGP contacts have superior optics. Since they're firm, they retain their shape better when you blink, so your eyes don't have to refocus as much, and they are superb for astigmatism or bifocal needs.

It can happen at any age but we are now seeing more children becoming myopic than in the past. It is known that myopia at a young age is very likely to result in greater myopia as the child grows. This increase in myopia can lead to greater risks of ocular complications such as glaucoma and retinal detachments.
