Avant Garde Optical are the sole distributors for Nanovista in the UK and Ireland. In 2015 We had the great opportunity to take on Nanovista and be the first to offer it in the UK. Originally, we offered this alongside other brands however the Nanovista brand has done so well in the UK it is now our main business.

We are proud to have Nanovista and truly believe it is the best children’s eyewear brand available. We are only a small team and are always happy to help no matter what. The business is run by Paul Cotter and his Son James, James has recently finished a marketing degree at university and has been busy looking after the phonelines and processing orders. We have also recently taken on Kelly, who is helping James run the back office.

We are based in Newark, Nottinghamshire with sales reps covering all areas, if you are interested in stocking Nanovista give us a call.

Customer Reviews

Hayley and her son George age 5
My Son used to break his glasses on a regular basis, we were forever visiting the opticians to but new ones. We actually found Nanovista online and after looking at the store founder we were able to locate a stockist near us. All I can say is WOW, it has been over 6 months since he got his glasses and they have not suffered any damage at all. We will be sticking with Nanovista for a while. 
Andrew and his daughter Sophia age 8

After looking around for ages we were not able to find any nice glasses for our daughter, everywhere we went had a poor selection and just showed us frames that we could get for free. My daughter was not generally a fan of wearing glasses so it was really important to us that she had a nice pair. Spending a little extra was not an issue for us as we still has the government contribution. We found Nanovista and fell in love, the colour choice was great and the frames are so light my daughter says she forgets she is wearing them. We chose to go for a Sunclip frame as we essentially get a pair of prescription sunglasses for a fraction of the price. I could not recommend Nanovista enough.
