Eye examination

Iris Optikko

A carefully performed, extensive eye examination takes time and because of this we reserve at least half an hour for the examination. With us, the eye examination always includes an IOP measurement and if necessary, we can examine the structures of the eyes with a microscope, photograph the fundus and in connection with these examinations we can also use diagnostic drugs.

Our operations and vision examinations are guided by the Optician’s ethical guidelines, the Optometry Council’s (OEN) guidelines for good examination of optometrists and the values of the Vision Specialists.

We have modern equipment, but traditional, proven methods.

Dry Eyes Proper Service

Iris Optikko

Dry eyes are a common problem

Eye dryness is a common and growing problem that is also increasing with children and adolescents. Its symptoms in the eyes include stinging and burning, feeling of debris and sand, photosensitivity and runny eyes. Its causes can be nutrition, diets, allergies, medications, mechanical air conditioning, telephone and tablet use and more.

As many as 40% of the finnish population sometimes suffer from the symptoms of dry eyes. This is a problem that is increasing, also among younger people.

Eye dryness can be examined and treated successfully. Iris’ optometrists provide a modern dry eye service, where they perform a dry eye examination and measurement, recommend further treatment and follow up on the effectiveness of the treatment.

Dry Eyes Proper Service

You’ll easily identify Your eye dryness by doing the home test below. Add up Your symptoms and see if You are in need of our Dry Eyes Proper Examination.

Blephex – cleaning the eyelids

Dry Eyes care may also include cleaning the edge of the eyelids with the Blephex device. This form of treatment can accelerate the opening of blockages in the meibomian glands and can in the most severe cases even be a necessary step towards healthy eyes.

Contact lenses

Iris Optikko

All kinds of contact lenses

You can correct most of the common, vision related challenges with contact lenses. In addition to farsightedness and nearsightedness, one can correct astigmatism and presbyopia. The most common contact lenses are soft, either monthly or disposable lenses. The monthly lenses are either day lenses that you always remove for the night or night-and-day lenses that you can wear for up to 30 days in a row, provided that everything works as intended.

We prescribe special contact lenses

In addition to regular soft lenses, we also prescribe special contact lenses that can be soft, but also hard lenses or hybrid lenses. Special contact lenses are needed in cases when the regular ones cannot be fitted reliably or the customer does not see well enough with them.

The special lenses include, but are not limited to, Rose K keratoconus lenses and Scleral lenses that do not necessarily have to touch the cornea, ie. the middle of the eye.

Myopia Control

Myopia, or nearsightedness, is the most common cause of impaired vision in the world and the second most common cause of blindness. CooperVision’s MiSight lenses aim to prevent an increase in the need for minus power, especially in adolescents and school children.

Fundus photography

Iris Optikko

Digital fundus photography

We scan the retina with the EasyScan imaging system, which allows us to get more accurate and versatile fundus images compared to traditional photographs.

With the help of fundus images, we can effectively screen and follow up on deviations, and give a statement where we suspect changes from previous images or deviations from how these images are expected to look like. In case of suspicion, we request a final statement from an ophthalmologist or a medical doctor (MD) who specializes in ophthalmic conditions by remote connection or refer the customer to the ophthalmologist’s office for further examination.

Repairs

Iris Optikko

All kinds of repairs

We do all kinds of repairs and adjustments of spectacle frames, when possible. The most common repairs are soldering of metal and plastic frames and fastening of spring mounted temples that have come loose.

As a warranty service, we offer our regular customers, adjustment of the frames and tensioning of the screws, replacement of nose pads if necessary and afterwards, a proper cleaning of the lenses.

Noora changes new nosepads on a customer’s spectacles.

Repair of plastic frame

Sometimes a part of the frame sadly breaks prematurely or an important part comes loose and disappears. In such cases, it is good to know that our optometrists are ready to make the necessary repairs so that you can wear your glasses for a long time more. Most frames we sell can be repaired in the event of an accident. Sometimes rarely the repairs succeed so well that there are no visible traces of repair, but why throw away glasses that are otherwise in good condition just because some part of it comes loose?

A very important piece had loosened from the customer’s plastic frame and disappeared, and we happened to have a suitable piece of cellulose acetate in stock.
The plastic piece was stenciled and shaped to fit, after which it was melted in place with acetone.
The frame is ready to be used again!

Grinding

Iris Optikko

Lens grinder in our workshop

We grind most of the lenses we sell, because we have a grinding machine for spectacle lenses in our workshop. So we can grind new lenses into your spectacle frames while you wait and drink a cup of coffee that we also provide.

Read more about the lenses we have in stock here.

Henri checks the strength of the lens and marks the optical center before grinding.
This is what a typical lens looks like before grinding.
The optical center of progressive lenses is accurately marked using the magnifying device.
The shape of the frame is read and the lens is decentrated to the correct position with a separate device.
The grinding is semi-automatic, always with an accuracy of 0.05 millimeters.

Nose pads for acetate frames

Iris Optikko

Plastic frames are good looking and great, but they don’t always sit on your nose as you’d like. To improve the fit, we can install nose pads in the frame. Options include a booster cushion that follows the material of the plastic frame or an adjustable nose pad with a stem. In the first option, the pillow is always fixed, but in the latter, nose pads of different sizes and materials can be changed.

The frame is shaped and holes are drilled in the front for the cushion arms.
The arms for the nose cushions are mounted in the holes.
The nose pads are in place and the tools are waiting for the next task.
