Eye health examination

During an eye health examination, you will meet a student who is already a licensed optician and who is further training to become a specialist in KI's master's program with a focus on eye diseases (clinical optometry). The student conducts the examination under the supervision of their teacher, who is a licensed optician and optometrists.
In addition to a regular eye examination where you get a spectacle prescription with you, we also screen for eye diseases. This means that we use pupil dilating eye drops when needed.

And feel free to bring sunglasses!
