Do clip in filters preserve refractive index?

I've just modified my Nikon D7000 to full spectrum (no filters at all), but now my manual lenses wont focus at infinity due to the changes in the optical path.
I know that you can buy clip in filters, even for Nikons these days, so I wondered if this would enable me to use my lenses again.
Focussing with a scope is OK, but then there is the star bloating effect due to the lack of the UV/IR filter.
So would the purchase of a clip in filter solve both problems?

Thanks in advance

Bob

I use a FULL full (no filters) 1000D for spectroscopy. The std camera lenses won't focus without a clear clip-in Astronomik filter.
If you want to add a UV-IR clip in, it will work OK.

Thanks Ken. That's what I was hoping for.
I really don't want to have to take it all apart again.

Does anyone know where I can get a Nikon Clip in CLS/UV/IR filter quickly within Aus?
Thanks

Bob
