Brillet, a slightly better optician’s shop, has been offering diverse optical services now for several years in Rovaniemi. Appointments for optometrists and eye doctors, stylish frames, contact lenses, sunglasses and more are available in their local shop.
Vision is one of our most important senses and that’s why you should take care of it. It is advisable to apply for eye examination when you notice something has changed in your eyesight or if you have problems with seeing. However, it is recommended to have your sight examined every two years even if you show no symptoms, especially if you use glasses or contacts lenses. Eyesight begins to weaken naturally as we age so it is very advisable to have it checked when you reach middle age.
With any issues concerning contact lenses and eyeglasses or any problems with seeing you can contact an optometrist. With matters of actual illness, ophthalmologists or eye doctors are the best help. The skilled workers of Brillet are also able to help in first aid situations and can often offer a more competent help than basic health centers can when the emergency concerns eyes directly.
Brillet offers a wide range of visual examinations. The optometrist’s TARKKA examination will determine if you have a refractive error or strabismus. The iCare tonometer gives intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements and the front and fundus of the eye can be examined using a microscope. Many optical shops also have a camera for fundus or eyeground screening which gives more accurate results.
In addition, Brillet also has a topography device to examine the cornea of the eye, tear fluids and the meibomian glands. A device called Ocusweep examines night vision and field of vision. Brillet was the first Finnish company to ever own a BlephEx which helps treating inflammations in the eyelids and cleaning their edges.
The education of optometry is high-class
In Finland, the high level of optometry education and the knowledgeable graduates from it guarantee high quality optical services. The high level is not limited to opticians and optometrists, as the level of training for eye doctors is also very good.
An optometrist is a legalized optician who has undergone a more extensive training than a basic optician. Nowadays, this difference in training is not so notable as the basic studies now cover a wider area.
Brillet’s workers are well-trained optometrists and ophthalmologists who have worked in the field for a long time. Their professional services are also available in English.
