June 12th kicks of National Glaucoma Awareness Week, supported by the International Glaucoma Association (IGA). The goal is to increase general awareness of Glaucoma and the need for regular eye exams. Glaucoma is known as the ‘silent thief of sight’ because it gradually damages the optic nerve and if untreated can eventually lead to vision loss.

One of the reasons the IGA wants to increase the awareness of Glaucoma as the disease has no early warning signs or symptoms, which means that main means of detection is through regular eye exams. For many, by the time they have symptoms, it is too late to reverse the vision loss. This means that early detection is the key to treating Glaucoma. There is unfortunately no cure yet for Glaucoma.

The iconic Tiffany brand was founded in 1837 by Charles Tiffany and John Young. Originally the company sold stationery and later added jewellery to its product line-up. The Tiffany brand became widely known thanks to the mail order catalogue it launched in 1845. Using its now hallmark blue colour, the catalogue quickly became known as the ‘Blue Book’ and was widely sought after.

Even today, the blue Tiffany box, with its white ribbon is highly recognisable and epitomises style and sophistication. The classic movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s with Audrey Hepburn, has made no visit to New York complete without visiting the Tiffany & Co.’s headquarters building and shop on Fifth Avenue.

Born in Paris, France, in 1949, Philippe Starck has become one of the iconic designers of his time. Known for his architectural designs and industrially inspired designs, Starck actually began his career under the tutelage of French designer Pierre Cardin. 

Having studied interior architecture, so far, Starck has designed a vast and eclectic range of things, from hotels, to toothbrushes, to bathroom fixtures, to chairs, to sunglasses. And he will probably continue to design a wide range of products going forward. Probably Starck’s most iconic design is the spider- or alien-like citrus squeezer, called the Juicy Salif, which he designed for Alessi, an Italian kitchen and houseware company, back in the 1990s. This citrus squeezer became a must have for many modern kitchens around the world. His designs seem to transcend gender, age and nationality, which is one of the aspects that makes Starck’s deigns so popular.

Some styles simply do not go out of fashion. For sunglasses it’s the ubiquitous Aviator sunglasses. Aviators were developed by Bausch & Lomb in the 1930s for American fighter pilots, to help them handle the increased glare from the sun which was making the pilots nauseous.

Planes were flying higher and faster than before and the existing goggles were no longer viable. Bauch & Lomb created and patented the Aviator sunglasses.

Also, what many people also don’t realise is that children’s eyes are especially vulnerable to UV damage. This means that getting children into the habit of wearing sunglasses from an early age is increasingly important.
