    The best optician ever. Probably the best choice to fit your eyeglasses in Bulgaria. The guy has so much knowledge that you are sure you're receiving professional service. They... have special cameras to determine your eyes position while you are looking. They have a wide variety of samples of all lenses available, like Xtractive, Xctractive Polarised, Gen 8, mirrored lenses and more and everything in every color more

    Family owned, Small local business with the best customer service experience hands down! I got to Vesilen looking for a professional optometrist after a very bad, unprofessional... experience at Opticlasa on Vitosha Blvd. I had different powers on all my glasses and non of them was strong enough for the long, nighttime and daytime drives I've been taking. Vesilen performed the most comprehensive eye test (over 90min!) I have ever gotten, put so much care into finding the correct powers for me. Vesilen is honest, extremely professional and knowldgable, I learned more from him than any of the previous 4 optometrists I've been to. He took the time to answer my questions making me a part of the process and completly my expreince from horrible to wonderful! Wide range of prices for every budget, large variety of frames and sunglasses (if you like unique check out the hand-made German frames theyr'e exquisite!). Warm atmosphere, you'll feel it the second you walk in with a very clear statment "You are welcome here!".Got my glasses within a few days, they came out perfect and I'm so happy to try them out on my upcoming 6 hour drive!!! That is the only place you want to go to. Vesilen and his mom will make it their mission to make you a happy customer!read more

    I would give 10 stars if I could. I was worried about getting a new pair of glasses because I have a high prescription with astigmatism and have never ordered glasses abroad. This... place was recommended to me after reaching out to one of the local FB groups. Veselin was incredibly responsive when I reached out and went beyond my expectations in the time and care that he took during my exam. He is a true professional and perfectionist and noticed that my prescription was actually over corrected (my vision was sharper than it needed to be which actually creates more problems with eye strain when working on my laptop). Plus, by slightly decreasing my prescription, my lenses moved out of the "custom" category and became more affordable (no one had ever taken the time to suggest this to be before). When my new lenses came in, I couldn't tell at all that the prescription was slightly decreased. The lenses were very clear and even better than my previous lenses. And my eye strain was reduced. Plus, my contact lense prescription was adjusted well. I can't recommended Super 9000 and Veselin enough. He's my favorite optician and I've seen many. I'm now a very happy and loyal more

    A month ago I needed to refresh my dioptric glasses. I already knew about Super 9000 because last summer I got a sleek pair of Shelter sunglasses (those made with French walnut... 👌🏻) from the store. So I’ve made an appointment with the owner Vessko and went for a next level eye examination while sipping hot tea. A few days after that I got my new glasses adjusted for astigmatism and PC screen usage. Great quality! And there’s a bonus - the place is dog friendly!read more
    Ultra precise, professional, taking legacy parent's craft to a whole new level. Don't bother with anyone else for optics in town. This is the real deal. What started with a... friendly dogwalk-related banter in the park on a chilly November eve, ended up with me and my son getting the best eyeglasses either of us had ever had. Vesselin and his mom will make you feel right at home in the shop, nice music, good coffee and above all, perfect service that leaves no question, need or desire unaddressed.P.S. Don't be alarmed if Vesselin ends up correcting your existing prescription after the thorough exam leveraging state-of-the-art tech, profound knowledge and a dash of perfectionism. Almost miraculously, one starts seeing equally well with both eyes! I know I did, despite the "complicated and incurable" astigmatism and diopter differences I've been told I have over all these more

    Работя като лекар-хирург, но се доверих на тази оптика да изработи моите нови очила. Имам доста сложен оптичен проблем на очите от дете - висок астигматизъм с далекогледство, с... голяма разлика на диоптъра между двете очи. Винаги е много трудно да се определи точната корекция на зрението ми. Доверих се на съвременните технологии, които Веско умело прилага, и на перфекното изработване на очилата от майка му. От 2 месеца нося новите си очила с прогресивни стъкла, адаптирах се отлично и виждам наблизо и надалеч комфортно и ясно. Освен професионалисти, те са дружелюбни и съвестни.Няма как да не ги препоръчвам!read more
  • What equipment do you use for measuring vision?
    At Super 9000, we determine your prescription using one of the most advanced and precise devices in the world – the Vision-R 800 phoropter by Essilor.
    The phoropter serves as a replacement for the trial frame, offering a wide range of capabilities and various types of tests. Unlike the trial frame, this device is lightweight and doesn’t leave marks on the nose. Our modern phoropter relies on a highly intelligent computer that facilitates and accelerates all processes. With its help, we can perform a greater number of tests in the same amount of time. The computer protects us from errors, handles routine calculations on our behalf, allowing us to focus on important tasks, and so on.
    Furthermore, instead of changing lenses, the prescription is adjusted using a soft adaptive gel-filled lens that simply changes its thickness. This is revolutionary. This technology enables us to measure prescriptions with an accuracy of 0.01 diopters, surpassing the standard 0.25D increments.
    This device represents the future, and Super 9000 is the first optical store in Bulgaria to work with such advanced technology.
  • Can you accurately measure if I have astigmatism or not?
    Yes, we can certainly determine if you have astigmatism. It’s one of our areas of expertise, and we find it quite fascinating. Even if we detect a minor astigmatism of 0.25D, we will incorporate it into your eyeglasses if it improves your vision. Research has shown that statistically, astigmatism below 0.5D doesn’t significantly impact visual acuity. However, we understand that you are not just a statistic but an individual with unique visual needs. That’s why we meticulously measure astigmatism for each person, ensuring maximum precision. We then evaluate if including it in your eyeglasses leads to better vision before making a decision. If necessary, we can provide trial glasses for confirmation.
  • (For people above 45yo) I tried progressive glasses and I wasn’t happy with them. Can you tell me why? Should I try again?
    From the people who are “unaccustomed” to progressive lenses, 2/3 have an incorrect prescription, 1/3 have improperly fitted lenses, and only 1 in 1000 is due to a genuine inability to adapt to progressives, such as vestibular disorders, eye conditions that restrict visual fields, or individuals with specific lifestyles or professions for whom conventional progressive lenses simply don’t meet their needs.
    The good news is that reputable manufacturers of these lenses guarantee that you will adapt, and in case of dissatisfaction, they will replace the lenses with regular ones for near and/or distance vision. If the reason lies in incorrect fitting or prescription, then the responsibility falls on your optician, allowing you to try progressive lenses without risk. If you have purchased progressive lenses and have complaints about them, it is advisable to inform the optical store where they were made and insist on a resolution.
  • I am not sure if I need glasses. I think I see quite well but I get very tired after prolonged work with a compluter.
    It is possible to have excellent vision and still have a certain level of refractive error. If you experience fatigue after prolonged reading or computer work, it may be due to farsightedness and/or astigmatism. If you wish to avoid fatigue and prevent headaches at the end of the workday, you may need glasses with a prescription. Protective glasses against blue light without a prescription will not provide the necessary relief.
    It’s important to prioritize your visual comfort and well-being. If you experience any of these symptoms, it is advisable to consult with an optician or optometrist who can assess your specific needs and recommend the appropriate eyewear.
  • Can you just measure my vision so I can purchase new glasses elsewhere?
    No, we are here to solve vision problems, and we are committed to overseeing the entire process. Vision correction sometimes involves wearing trial glasses, undergoing a period of adaptation, and having follow-up examinations. Therefore, it is rarely possible to issue a final prescription right away.
    You may have heard the expression that a person looks with their eyes but sees with their brain. This is precisely why optimal correction doesn’t always work on the first try. Some individuals compensate for their astigmatism in a way that makes them feel more comfortable without correcting it. Others have worn a completely different prescription until now, so even with the correct prescription determined, the adjustment may be challenging, requiring more time for adaptation. In all such cases, we provide trial glasses: we fit free lenses into your new frame, which you can wear for a week or as long as necessary before confirming the final correction. If needed, we can conduct a second examination. Sometimes, this is the only way to maximize your eye’s potential without exceeding the limits of comfort.
    The good thing is that such an examination needs to be done only once in a lifetime since the prescription for most adults doesn’t typically change.
  • Can you fit new lenses in my old frame?
    It is possible, but not with every frame. Some frames are poorly constructed or of low quality, increasing the risk of breakage. The suitability can be determined after an examination.
    We understand that finding the right frame is essential for both style and longevity. During your visit, our team will assess the quality and durability of various frames to ensure that you find the perfect fit. Your satisfaction and safety are our top priorities.
    If you have any specific preferences or concerns regarding frame selection, feel free to share them with us. We are here to help you make the best choice.
  • Is it true that, when you start wearing glasses, your eyes become lazy and the powers may start rising?
    No, that’s not true. Wearing prescription glasses does not cause your eyes to become lazy or result in an increase in power, except in certain cases that are more relevant to children’s eye development.
    In general, once you reach adulthood (around the age of 25 or older), the prescription of your glasses remains relatively stable unless there are specific circumstances or conditions that may cause changes.
  • How much does the exam cost and how much time do I need to plan?
    The good news is that this examination is included in the price of your new glasses (frame + lenses). If we put lenses in your existing frame, the examination costs 50 BGN.
    Please note that we do not offer the examination as a standalone service.
    Allocate approximately 1 hour of your time – 30 minutes for the examination and 30 minutes for selecting the frame and lenses.

How to prepare for an appointment at Super 9000?

  1. Get a good night’s sleep and try to come as early as possible, especially on workdays. Results may not be as accurate if your eyes are tired from lack of sleep or prolonged computer use;
  2. Bring all the information about your vision history that you can find. We can examine your eyes even without it, but it’s always better to know how your vision has developed over the years. This includes both prescriptions and the glasses themselves;
  3. If you wear contact lenses, schedule a morning appointment and do not put your lenses before the examination;
  4. Think about the difficulties your old glasses may be causing:
    • Do you think you see clearly at all distances?
    • Do your eyes get tired in the evening?
    • Do sunglasses bother you while driving, working, or doing sports?
    • Do your glasses sit comfortably on your face? Do you think about them often?
