Local opticians have been urged to ensure quality of the wares they sell to the public. Opticians are specialists who design, fit and dispense lenses for the correction of people’s vision.
Speaking at an exhibition of optical products recently, Dr. Pricille Mukabariza, a medical advisor at the Military Medical Insurance department, also warned people with eye ailments against buying eye glasses without medical prescription.
“Always consult professionals who can then examine and guide you accordingly,” she said.
The optical products exhibition was organised by OPTICA, the distributor for optical frames, sunglasses, ophthalmic lenses and contact lenses.
OPTICA’s Raghav Moudgill cautioned the public against buying glasses from street vendors, arguing that they could be harmful to their eyes.
