It's not just about spectacles.
At NK Opticians, we believe there is a great deal more to having an eye examination than opening times and finding out if you need spectacles or contact lenses. We carry out a range of sophisticated tests to assess the health of your eyes at our practices in Weston-Super-Mare and Cheddar.
Everyone has unique eyesight and we tailor the eye examination to your needs. At our practice we explain each test and ensure that you are at ease with the whole journey.
NK Opticians offers both NHS and private eye examinations. Many people are entitled to free eye tests under the NHS, and you may also qualify for free, or reduced cost glasses, or contact lenses with an NHS optical voucher.
1 hour Service
NK Opticians are pleased to offer a free and professional one hour glazing service. We hold a large stock of prescription lenses that can be glazed into most frames within an hour.
There is no extra cost for using this service. Subject to availability.
Enhanced reading lenses are ideal for those who require exceptional vision in both close and intermediate areas.
The Varilux Computer lens and Nikon Online lens provide the same quality and depth of reading as a single vision lens while giving you the benefit of an effective intermediate area, ideal for computers.
The wide intermediate zone also offers clarity up to a distance of 3 metres away, making them perfect for the office environment. The image above shows the field of mid distance vision provided by a single vision lens compared to the second image which clearly shows the greater field offered by the Nikon Online lens.
Transitions lenses offer all the benefits of a clear lens with added protection from the harmful effects of sunlight:
Clear indoors as a normal lens.
Go dark quickly to reduce glare and increase wearer comfort.
Automatically react to light to help improve your visual quality whilst reducing eye fatigue.
Help protect eyes from harmful UV rays which lead to degenerative eye conditions.
High index lenses are thinner and lighter lenses than traditional glass or plastic. These lenses are geared towards those with moderate to high prescriptions. They can make wearing glasses enjoyable and restore confidence. Durable and tough they are perfect for children and active adults.
Lenses made of high index plastic are lighter than the same lenses made in conventional plastic, so they're more comfortable to wear.
Spectacles with reflections are far from flattering! Unwanted reflections on your lenses reduce contrast and create dazzle.
Anti-reflective layers reduce reflections by 80% eliminating visual discomfort and offering outstanding clarity.
For everyone that needs a varifocal there is a Varilux lens to suit. Varilux Comfort is the benchmark lens widely prescribed around the world. Varilux Physio represents another technological leap in that it achieves new standards in high definition vision by eliminating irregularities in light waves as they pass through the lens.
The budget lens is Varilux Liberty which brings genuine Varilux quality at a really affordable price.
Crizal Prevenia's exclusive technology provides protection from harmful blue-violet and UV light. It also helps prevent premature eye aging and offers the best lens protection against reflections, smudges, scratches, dust and water.
Crizal UV is the first clear lens to offer your eyes protection against dangerous UV aggressions from the front and back surfaces of the lens, while ensuring the best clarity of vision.
