Nearly Half of the Global Population May Be Nearsighted by 2050, Researchers Say

February 2016 — Researchers at the Brien Holden Vision Institute in Sydney, Australia, recently poured over data from 145 studies and analyzed the prevalence of myopia and high myopia among 2.1 million study participants. The group also used data published since 1995 to estimate trends from 2000 to 2050.

Eyeglasses on a globe map of the earth

What they found was alarming.

An estimated 1.4 billion people worldwide were nearsighted in 2000. That’s about 23 percent of the total global population. But by 2050, the researchers predict this figure will soar to 4.8 billion, afflicting 49.8 percent of the world’s population.

The good news is, there are ways to protect your children from landing on the wrong side of this statistic. One key may be to encourage them to turn off their electronic devices and head outdoors.

The study points out that the projected increases in myopia are driven principally by lifestyle changes characterized by more near-work activities, like using computers and portable electronic devices, including smart phones. Other proposed risk factors for myopia include long hours spent in the classroom and less time outdoors, especially among young children in countries such as Singapore, Korea, Taiwan and China.

Although the vision of most people with nearsightedness can be restored with glasses and contact lenses, high levels of myopia increase the risk of eye diseases such as cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment and myopic macular degeneration — all of which can cause irreversible vision loss.

The study report authors concluded that the prevalence of high myopia is likely to increase seven-fold from 2000 to 2050, which would make myopia a leading cause of permanent blindness worldwide. The report appeared online this month on the website of the journal Ophthalmology.

MyKita Sunglasses a smash hit in Milan

MYKITA MADELEINE MYKITA / Damir Doma model BRADFIELD has just been featured on the runway of the Damir Doma SS16 Women’s show in Milan. In the same layered aesthetic, MADELEINE now joins the MYKITA / Damir Doma collection.

At first glance, the perfectly round MADELEINE appears to consist of two frames, but a closer look reveals the trompe l’oeil construction as an example of particularly sophisticated handcraft. Made of one piece the frame is essentially folded in half and brought into shape in a series of meticulous steps. The result is a distinctive aesthetic in which two delicate circular lenses hover in front of more solid round rims. Contrasting colors accentuate the layered concept. A touch eccentric, very elegant and thoroughly modern.

Chanel inspired by Korea

chanel-si-ispira-alla-coreaThe futuristic Dongdaemun Design Plaza (DDP) in Seoul, a design museum created by the architect Zaha Hadid, hosted Chanel’s Crociera 2015/16 collection.The palette of sparkling colors, delicate freshness and structured silhouettes conveyed the perfect blend of Korean inspiration and the atelier’s style. Karl Lagerfeld reinterpreted “local” culture in general terms: from the traditional dress (the hanbok) to the acidic aesthetics of K Pop, the entire collection was imbued with energy and avant-garde accents. Eyewear was also among the main players at the fashion show.

Vision Council report – Sunglasses are a must – protect your eyes!

ALEXANDRIA, Va.—More than one in four American adults are risking serious eye damage through exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, according to a new report from The Vision Council, “Protection for the Naked Eye: Sunglasses as a Health Necessity.”The report, which is intended to educate consumers about the importance of wearing sunglasses to protect against UV, was released yesterday to 250 consumer reporters and editors. It finds that more than 25 percent of U.S. adults rarely or never wear sunglasses, and nearly two-thirds are unaware of the link between UV exposure and serious eye diseases such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. An abbreviated overview of the report was also shared with long-lead magazines in March of this year, promoting story ideas and supplements for their summer issues.

“Our goal at The Vision Council is to raise awareness about the risks of exposure to UV rays, and the sunglass options and other UV protective eyewear available, so that more and more Americans are protecting their eyes,” said Mike Daley, the CEO of The Vision Council. “Consumers of all ages need to be aware of these issues, and the steps that they can take to prevent damage to the eyes throughout their lifetime.”

The report also finds that more than one-third of parents report that their children 13 and under rarely or never wear sunglasses, despite the fact that children are at increased risk for UV overexposure.

“Because UV exposure happens over a lifetime and doesn’t always produce immediate symptoms, people of all ages must be aware of the negative impact sunlight can have on our eyes—without adequate protection like sunglasses,” said Justin Bazan, OD, medical adviser to The Vision Council.

The release of the report, which coincides with May as UV Awareness Month, supports The Vision Council’s many UV protection activities including an ongoing partnership with Lifetime Fitness as well as a widespread National Sunglasses Day campaign. The Lifetime Fitness partnership directly reaches 6.25 million consumers each month, promoting the importance of UV protection with indoor posters, digital signage, and multiple 30-second TV spots as well as sunglasses-related activities in 12 Lifetime Fitness locations throughout the country to celebrate National Sunglasses Day, June 27.
