Welcome to the classic Pantos glasses page! Panto eyeglasses transport us back to the ‘50s and ‘60s, when the popular NHS pantos glasses were on most people's faces, up and down the country! The term ‘Panto’ comes from the word ‘pantoscopic’ which means ‘seeing everything’ or ‘wide view’ - just what you want in a practical pair of optical glasses! The silhouette of the iconic NHS panto glasses was available in both round and oval shapes, with a high hinge, delivering optical clarity to all. Now this famous shape is back in fashion, and you can add the most advanced lenses, from Nikon or Essilor, to your pantos frames at Fashion Eyewear. Don’t forget to use our virtual try-on so you can try on your designer pantos glasses before you buy.
