Blink Optics offers beautiful frames, the latest eyecare technology and superb customer service
You just have to look at the number of positive online reviews to see that Blink Optics is getting it right. Based in East Sheen, this independent optician, owned by Nilesh and Alka Soneji, has not only got great frames and state-of-the-art technology, but that all important customer service, which turns one appointment into a life-long customer.
‘Locals have really taken on board that we like to go that extra mile. We’re not a big chain, which means we can really take time with each customer and give a personalised service.
And, having treated the parents, we now see them bringing in their children for eye tests, too.’
Nilesh emphasises the importance of eye tests in the young. ‘Kids might not be thinking about the fact they can’t see the board clearly at school, so it’s up to the parents to notice if there may be a problem with their vision,’ he says. And, as children’s eye tests are free, there’s no reason not to get them checked out.
Nilesh and his team also offer a complimentary 4D eye health scan – worth £40 – when you book an eye test. This is important for all ages, as the scan can spot debilitating eye conditions at an early stage, before they cause irreparable damage, particularly as having good eyesight doesn’t mean your eyes are necessarily healthy. ‘The scan can see into the deeper layers of the retina and detect conditions such as glaucoma and age-related macula degeneration.’
Blink Optics offer a great range of designer glasses, including SALT, Ray Ban, Tom Ford, Moscot and Face a Face, the brand Nifties, for the smaller face, and a well-priced house brand, offering specs for every budget. And, with an in-house lab on site, they can offer a quick and easy express service as well as repairs.
There are many types of contact lenses on offer these days and Nilesh has built up years of experience to find which would be most suitable for you.
