Vision Expo West 2012 – New Acquisitions
Vision Expo West has come and gone, but we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of several new frame lines and some exciting new therapies and technology that we are certain our patients will find very beneficial.
Lookkino is a line of Italian designed and manufactured eye wear for children by the same company that makes Look Occhiali.
Mattisse is a collection of hand painted eye wear with outstanding colors and styles. We have added this collection to our children’s section.
We also acquired new and affordable sunglasses for children and adults and many new frames from the Fall 2012 collections of some of our current frame lines.
Dr. Elaine Happ takes the lead in the Dry Eye Center of Uptown Eye Care and was very excited to discover a product called Tranquileyes from EyeEco. Tranquileyes is an eye hydration therapy that uses heat and moisture to bring relief to dry, irritated or tired eyes. Many people that suffer from Dry Eye Disease experience worsening symptoms with the onset of winter. Dr. Happ is looking forward to being able to provide her patients with relief during this very uncomfortable season.
Our doctors are also very pleased to be able to provide the technology that enables them to measure the overall carotenoid antioxidant levels in an individual. Using the Pharmenex BioPhotonic Scanner the doctors now have a way to measure whether your diet and nutrition supplements are actually working. We will be publishing more in depth information on how this information should affect us and why we should care about our antioxidant levels.
So, although we have to put the fun and excitement of Las Vegas and Vision Expo West is behind us, we are very much looking forward to sharing with you all that we learned and to showing off our new frames that will be arriving shortly. Stop in anytime, we will be happy to show you what we are so excited about.
