I didn't know Nikon does this.....

Next week I have to go in to get new glasses and the guy talking with me tells me "personally I'd spend the extra $30 n your lens and get the Nikon one which are amazing"

Anyone else know Nikon makes eye glass lens? Just thought it was kinda cool.

    Yup, the lenses in my glasses are Nikon.

    Nikon's been making lenses for glasses for a long time. My mum had Nikon lenses in her glasses for many years, until glass alternatives became much lighter for strong prescriptions that is.

    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    That's cool. I was thinking it was just a licensed name thing but sounds like Nikon actually makes them.

    They make microscopes too!



    When I was passing through a pathology department I saw a bunch of Nikon microscopes with a F-mount attachment at the eyepiece and what seemed like a Nikon FM2 attached to it to take photos of microscope slides. If I remember right there wasn't really a viewfinder though.

    We have used one for measuring coating thickness. Bought 20 years ago with a 12Mp camera - which cost more than the microscope!
