Vision Express frames
Vision Express has exclusively launched a range of children’s spectacles inspired by the literary works of Roald Dahl.

At Vision Express we aim to make children love their glasses and looking after their eye health, which is why we’re excited to bring everyone’s favourite childhood characters to life and celebrate some of the most beloved stories and drawings of all time.”
