Hello, I am interested in your thoughts and opinions regarding eye tests and glasses in France. I am a British expat living in Brittany and for the past 10 years have commuted to the UK to work. I am an optometrist and so working in France was difficult due to differences in the eye care system. Things in France have changed over the past few years and an optician with the correct training can now do an eye test, and as I am fed up with commuting I am considering opening an optician's shop in Brittany, doing eye tests ( within french regulations) and selling glasses and contact lenses. I have seen several posts on this and other expat forums regarding the difficulties of having an eye test in France with long waiting times for an eye exam with an ophthalmologist and regarding how expensive glasses can be here. It would be great to hear your thoughts on eye tests and purchasing glasses in France and get some market research from the expat community in Brittany. Thanks for your help, Isabel
Hi Folks, Have read that there have been changes to the French health care system, and that it's much easier, as of January 1st, to get our carte vital... For us that are overwhelmed with all of this, is there somewhere we can read about it? Most interested as I am a pre-pension retiree...
Can anyone recommend a mouthwash that doesn't give the feeling of having gargled with paint stripper? I have a recurring problem of sore gums and mouth ulcers. Listerine and Colgate are too aggressive. The smell of Glyco Thymol reminds me too much of a miserable great-aunt of mine, so that makes me shudder too. Sensible suggestions please.
