VillageOPTICIAN - Optician Services

In our optician services, you will be met expertly and without haste by the optometry students of Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. Our staff, who are health care professionals, are responsible for the services.

In HyMy Village, you will be served by the clinic of the Optometry Sight Center and the VillageOPTICIAN store. Our VillageOPTICIAN store offers all the optician services. The store has a comprehensive selection of high-quality spectacle frames and lenses you can choose from the top of lens technology. We also do eyeglass repairs.

At optician services at a vision center or VillageOPTICIAN store, you can have a comprehensive eye examination and prescribe spectacles or contact lenses. We also use modern eye imaging equipment.

  • The vision examination begins with a comprehensive interview
  • Examination include the determination of refractive error, the evaluation of eye interaction, and the inspection of eye structures
  • You can set aside time for assistive device matching, which will map out the magnifying aids that are best suited to your vision situation. Our selection also includes electronic magnifiers.
  • During eye examination, pupil dilating eye drops may be used to allow more detailed examination and evaluation of the fundus. Please note that eye drops impair near vision and make it difficult to drive for a few hours. In addition, in sunny or clear weather, you may want to bring sunglasses to reduce glare. You can also always request that eye drops not be used for eye examinations.

If an abnormal finding suggesting an eye disease is found in an eye examination or imaging, we will refer you to an ophthalmologist, and you will receive a written assessment of the eye findings from us.

What does the Optometrist do?

Optometrist is a healthcare expert who specializes in vision and eye health. Optometrist studies the function and structures of the eyes with various tests and imaging. Based on the results, the client is recommended an eye correction that meets his needs. Typically, optometrist is sought when vision-related symptoms, such as impaired farsightedness or nearsightedness, headaches, or when a person wants contact lenses alongside the glasses.
