Je suis amoureux ROVA

We’ve all worn sunglasses on our head or fumbled for them in our bags en route to destination sun, well now you’re in for a treat at Concept Eye Clinic in Gosforth. Our exclusive new collection ROAV sunglasses and everyday spectacles straight from the golden straits of California, blend foldable pocket technology with slick design.

The clever people at ROAV say: “The eyewear business is dominated by a single massive company, and they have little incentive to move beyond the bulky and breakable frame construction of yesteryear. We’ve assembled a team of designers, engineers, and eyewear veterans to wipe the drawing board clean and create frames that the 21st century deserves… At last, a miniature marvel of epic proportions!”

We at Concept concur absolutely!

You can enjoy the glamour of Tom Ford, the cool vibe of RayBan or indeed any other eponymous brand (though of course we are rather discerning about or choice of frames here..), but you can also now enjoy advanced eyewear hinge technology designed for your lifestyle and developed with ultra-durable, screw-free, spring loaded craftsmanship. ROAV sunglasses and ophthalmic eye wear is feather light and utterly unobtrusive, fitting into the smallest pocket. Unlike traditional eyewear hinges that are soldered or riveted, for ROAV this means: fewer parts to break equals fewer broken glasses.


Say goodbye to constant slippage and marks on your nose. You may actually forget you’re wearing ROAV glasses. With complete polarised protection from glare and UVA and UVB rays, what’s not to like about these little beauties. Concept world is all about clever eye wear design and lens technology, and we think ROAV are rather brilliant.

Covid -19 FAQ's

Whilst transmission is via viral respiratory particles we know that viral particles can be found in the tears and this can cause viral conjunctivitis. It is probable that the affected individual will experience primary symptoms such as fever and cough.

The latest advice for contact lens wearers is that there is no evidence to date that contact lens wear should be avoided by healthy individuals, or that contact lens wearers are more at risk of contracting coronavirus then those wearing spectacles.
To help maintain healthy contact lens wear, all contact lenses wearers should follow correct lens wear and care instructions, including thoroughly washing and drying your hands before handling, applying and removing your contact lenses. Spectacles should be washed regularly using warm soapy water. In the absence of the diagnosis of COVID-2 and in the absence of symptoms of fever, cough, red eye or discharge and provided that scrupulous hygiene is practised then contact lens wear is permissible. Social distancing ( minimum of 2m) should be exercised. Spectacle wear would be the preferred mode of sight correction or daily wear contact lens wear.
