Nolke Opticians’ long term vision for business growth

Nolke Opticians Orla Reade

Nolke Opticians is delighted to welcome Optometrist Orla Reade to its team. Orla, originally from Carlow has practiced as an optometrist in Carlow and Kilkenny since 2006.

Owner, Kjell Nolke, opened the practice in Ardkeen on the Dunmore Road in Waterford City in 2004. Having experienced the highs and lows of the last 13 years, the practice has grown substantially and Orla’s arrival will allow it to develop and grow further.

Kjell commented on her appointment, “Orla will make a big difference to the practice. Apart from her enthusiasm, expertise and energy, she gives me more time to plan and manage the future for the practice. We have big plans for Nolke Opticians and now I have the opportunity and freedom to develop these”.

With experience in Specsavers opticians Orla will bring valuable knowledge to the work flow and processes in practice. Nolke Opticians eye-care practice is very much centred on the patient journey, giving time to the appointment as well as the use of the latest in technology.

According to Orla, “I am really enjoying the ability to give our customers so much more time and care. The philosophy within Nolke Opticians is patient-centric, so it gives me the opportunity to really get to know our customers and this obviously improves the overall service”.

With an OCT (Ocular Coherance Tomographer) Nolke Opticians can view patients retinal structure, similar to an ultrasound scan. Combined with Hospital standard visual field screeners, painless glaucoma screening, custom contact lens fitting and a new low vision service for visually impaired patients, the practice is making huge strides forward.

Nolke Opticians believes in offering the very best eye care and recommends that everyone should have an initial complete OCT assessment, which will form a baseline figure and will be used as a reference from which future readings will be compared. This will allow them the greatest opportunity to confirm your eye’s health by detecting any evidence of change at the earliest stage.
