New from the Emilio Pucci FW15 Eyewear Collection

New from the Emilio Pucci FW15 Eyewear Collection

The two new styles from the Emlio Pucci Fall/Winter 2015 eyewear collection perfectly interpret the aesthetic philosophy of the florentine brand, one that’s characterized by tradition, elegance and style offset with modern touches, celebrating a creative vision in continuous evolution. Refined materials, stunningly modern design, sophisticated production techniques, master craftsmanship, attractive construction and an unerring pursuit of quality are the defining features of these new creations: a classy reinterpretation of elegance and femininity. The EP5005 cat-eye optical style is full of sophisticated charm thanks to the contrast of materials linking front and temples. Acetate and metal alternate to give the frames an elegant, unusual feel, something further emphasized by the Vivara print embossed onto the metal part of the temples. Available in bright tones and more classic colors, this model is the embodiment of simple, understated femininity.   Versatility and functionality are the cornerstones of these acetate frames, which boast a broad, squared front section. The refined femininity of style EP5014 is emphasized by the iconic detailing of the temples: choose between Power Flower or Butterfly prints to complete a sumptuous contrast between front section and temples. ...

Blackfin Scoops The Silmo d’Or

Blackfin Scoops The Silmo d’Or

The Silmo d’Or prize goes to Blackfin, the 100% Italian brand of titanium eyewear. This much- coveted golden statuette was awarded in the Frame Technological Innovation category for the Shark-lock patent, a revolutionary glazing system designed by Corrado Rosson (Senior VP of Product & Design for Blackfin) to hold the lenses firmly in the frame without the need for screws.

Blackfin is a brand that has always invested in research and innovation, our goal being to offer a product of absolute excellence”.

The Optometrist’s Perspective

The Optometrist’s Perspective

Today there is a ongoing study being conducted Asia on Myopia control. It seems that Myopia is most prevalent in Asian countries. GP Specialists (contact lens lab in San Diego) reports an increase in the number of doctors fitting their Ortho-K lenses. There is no doubt that many studies have shown that fitting children with Ortho-K does reduce myopia by 30-40%. Many doctors are recommending that children spent more time outdoors since it is their belief that myopia is environmentally connected. As a young student in Optometry, I was taught that children who spend too much time watching T.V. was bad for the eyes. I was also taught that children who spend time outdoors tend to become hyperopic rather than myopic. I myself became hyperopic to this day. Here’s my story. I grew up on the farm as did my older brother and younger sister. My brother is myopic with astigmatism. My sister is myopia in one eye while being hyperopic in the other other. Both my parents were hyperopic with astigmatism. My personal conviction is that we are genetically connected via our X factor from both parents that determines our eye condition. That is based on my personal experience of having practiced Optometry for 5 decades. I have colleagues that in the other camp. They are die hard in their belief’s that myopia is environmentally connected. So who is right? That question has been going on since my days in Opt school. Recently, a friend of mine sent me an article that he picked up via The Wall Street Journal. I read the article and thought the contents were worthy of print. The following article was written by Shirley S. Wang: Children is this small southern Chinese City (Yanjiang) sit and recite their vocabulary words in an experimental cube of a classroom built with translucent walls and ceilings. Sunlight lights up the room from all directions. (Note: the classroom from the picture appears to be a regular size elementary classroom with seating for 30 pupils). The goal of is to test whether natural, bright light can help prevent myopia. In several Asian countries, myopia rates in young people are far higher than in the U.S. Wei Want, a professor of public health at Edith Cowan University near Perth, Australia, and one of the authros of the recent Beijing study, says genes combine with one’s behavior and environment to cuase myopia. However, the fast increase must be due to environmental influences, since genes go not change that quickly, he says. The greatest health concern is the increase in severe myopia, which invreases the risk of serious eye problems like retinal detachment, glaucoma and macular degeneration, experts say. Treatment is a major problem too. Though glasses can correct vision in most myopic children, many parents feel that wearing glasses will further weaken the eyes. Across Asia, doctors, parents and public health officials are trying to prevent myopia or from keeping it from worsening. Some schools teach students to give themselves acupressure-type eye massage each day in China. Other efforts hold more promise. One main strategy being tested in China is to allow children to spend more time outdoors. The other involves a common drug names atropine. This study has been done in various countries worldwife. One such preliminary study involving 2,000 Chinese children showed a 23% reduction in myopia when the children were allowed an extra 40 minutes/day in outdoor activities. Outside the context of the study, it can be a challenge to get children to spend more time outdoors because of the heavy school workload in China. These factors combined with home work and reading are also likely to contribute to the growth in myopia. Sui Weizuan, 12, says that the room at Yanxi Experimental Primary school which seats 50 students, is hotter than traditional classrooms but she likes it better because it has better light. She believes tha her eyesight became worsened due to T.V. and computer usage. She now limits her time spent watching T.V. to one hour/week. Atropine, a drug used for decades to dilate the pupils, appears to slow the progression of myopia. There can be side effects which includes more sensitivity to light as well as difficulty in focusing up close. Studies in Singapore and Taiwan found that a lower does of atropine reduces myopia progression by 50-60% in children without side effects. Dr . Donald Tan, professor of ophthalmology at the Singapore National Eye Centre has spearheaded many of the studies. Large scale trials on low-dose atropine are expected to start shortly in Japan and in Europe. In Singapore, the children typically receive atropine drops for 3-6 months at the first sign of myopia. If their myopia continues to progress, they will continue the drops up to one year. Some doctors says that the low-dose Atropine drops should be continued until puberty is reached. Dr. Tan says that exposure to the drops should be limited, as with any medication, to as short a period as possible. Dr. Karla Zadnik, dean of the Ohio State Univeristy College of Optoometry has been studyng myopia for 25 years, says that spending time outsdoors is a low-risk solution and that the strategy can be applied broadly to children. But more invasive or expensive treatments mean that children should first be assessed for their risk for developing myopia before trying them, she says. What is your opinion? Are you involved in some form of myopia control. I have a number of colleagues conducting inhouse studies on myopia control via soft multifocal contact lens studies and they reporting some amazing results for the past 2 years. One thing is for certain. You can choose to do nothing or you can be amongst those who have elected to be on the cutting edge of myopia control. GP Specialists has noticed an large increase in the sales of their custom designed soft multifocal lenses for children by many of their practitioners. They also report a dynamic increase in the sales of their Ortho-K lenses (i-Sight Ortho-K) from around the world. Standard of care: It has been reported in some circles that one day, the standard of care for children with myopia will be in the area of multifocals. What say Ye? ...
