35th Anniversary - UVEX

February 16th, 2012

It’s the third week of the 35 year anniversary celebrations

of the opening of Graham Coe Opticians on Burton Street and

‘thank you’ to everyone who visited us last week to try the

Etnia Design collection. This week it is even more

exciting….The UVEX Collection!

Wrap around prescription lenses are of course not just ideal for sports, but also for protection. This can be from the elements if you suffer with dry eyes or work outdoors. Most prescriptions can now be curved and are available tinted, clear and in photochromic materials. Last year Graham Coe Opticians and our sister practice Langrick and Coe were 2nd and 3rd in the country for Rodenstock sport lens dispensings, so it really is an area in which we are very experienced.   


 Pure adrenalin: The UVEX collection covers the sport spectacles segment including a selection of children’s sport spectacles, sport spectacles that can be glazed with correction lenses, and lifestyle sunglasses. All frames are fitted with sport spectacle lenses made of polycarbonate (toughened plastic) and are suitable for a great variety of sports across the board. Some models have ingenious replaceable lenses so that vision without fogging is possible even during times of high exertion. Without a clear, undisturbed view any kind of outdoor sport is getting a non-calculable risk. For this reason good sports

eyewear should be part of the basic equipment! All UVEX sports lenses have a special UV filter, which excludes the harmful radiation 100%. This is also the origin the company name UVEX: UV - EX = ultraviolet excluded

Completely following the motto of “For a sportive view in life”, the UVEX brand is for all those who would like to have a sportive look in and out of training. The collection is very convincing with dynamic design elements like modern straight sides and coloured, stepped rubber parts. Ever since the company was founded in 1926, the UVEX brand has been synonymous with top-quality and innovative products that provide head-to-toe protection for sports, leisure and work. The manufacturing expertise is built upon decades of experience and the consistent application of new technologies. They are also the lightest protective spectacles in the world, for example the “UVEX Super G” weighs just 18 grams. In-house expertise and know-how ensure the products are of the highest quality and adhere to stringent safety standards. Research and development work into new materials and processes is also undertaken in Germany and forms an integral part of the company philosophy – PROTECTING PEOPLE.

Most of the manufacturing work is done in Germany and Europe: UVEX is “Made in Germany” by conviction and tradition. UVEX is a global partner on the international elite sports scene, providing equipment for more than 1,000 top athletes. Naturally, useful feedback from these remarkable sportsmen and women in turn provides a great incentive for continuous further development of their products.  UVEX WINTER HOLDING GmbH und Co. KG is another family-run enterprise, now in its third generation, and they are celebrating their 85th anniversary this year.
