Many people don’t really think about eating to improve your eye health. Of course eating a healthy diet is good for your body and thus also good for your eyes. But there are specific foods that you can eat to target your eye health.
This is important, because our eyes are bombarded with blue light from our mobile phones and computers, as well as UV rays and radiation from sunlight. To counteract some of these effects, think about adding these five foods to your daily diet.

Oliver Peoples eyewear started with the opening of their first boutique opticians on Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles in 1987. The founders had a vision of selling eyewear frames that were designed and made in the 'machine age' of the 1920's and 1930's. They began to acquire old unused stock from a liquidated company that had bought up frames from established American manufacturers such as American Optical and Bausch & Lomb. Both of these companies were renowned in the machinery and optical market at the time and supplied many American eyewear brands with eyeglasses.

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.

Sun Awareness Week is a campaign spear-headed by the British Association of Dermatologists and is a way to get people to be aware of the potential harm too much exposure to the sun can have. This also means the skin around your eyes, which is actually much more sensitive to sun than the skin on the rest of your body. Also, everyone is aware that too much sun can be harmful to skin, but too much sun can also be harmful to your eyes.
The new trend in consumer goods is ‘up-cycling’. What is up-cycling you ask? Up-cycling refers to using waste or unwanted materials into new materials or products. In other words, creative re-use. You probably have already seen products from the up-cycling trend, just didn’t know the term! Up-cycling is also now being incorporated into eyewear.
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.
As we get older, our night time vision deteriorates. But don’t panic, there is eyewear that can help with that.

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.
Everyone knows that a pair of glasses that suits one person may not suit another. This is because of the difference in face shape. Knowing what type of glasses suit your particular face shape will help you find the frames that best suit you and flatter your features.
Face shapes are generally divided into four categories: heart, oval, round and square. The following categories give a rough guideline on what shape of glasses will best suit your face.
Your eyes are your windows on the world so it’s important to give them the best care possible. Damage to eyes from UV rays is irreparable and the damage is actually cumulative, which means wearing the right eyeglasses is important for long-term protection - this goes both for sunglasses and prescription glasses. 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.
