The Futuristic and Classic look brought to the forefront of fashion by Matsuda Eyewear
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the launch of Mitsuhiro Matsuda’s eyewear collection, they are reintroducing one the collection’s most coveted designs. This style embodies all of the design elements and unique details that catapulted Matsuda into the spotlight 25 years ago. As part of the Matsuda Heritage Collection, the 2809H has been updated with the option to wear the frame with either removable sideshields, or a removable spring brow bar. The polarized lenses are crafted from the highest quality mineral glass and are treated to provide full UV protection. A multilayer anti-reflective coating is applied to the back of each lens reducing unwated and distracting reflections.
With each 2809H taking over 122 hours of workmanship to create, they have released just 250 pieces of each color.
At Fine Eyewear, we are proud to have one of these rare and beautiful pieces in our office. Stop on in and pick up this collectors must have of eyewear history!

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.

New Crizal Alizé Features Improved Cleanability

Essilor of America is launching a “new and improved” version of its Crizal Alizé anti-reflective lenses, according to the company. The upgraded product, which offers better cleanability, is a full product replacement for the previous generation of Crizal Alizé lenses, which was discontinued on Jan. 12.

Crizal Alizé lenses set the standard for cleanability in no-glare lenses, going above and beyond with a new and improved lens that is unmatched by the competition in its cleanability.”

Essilor’s latest generatio Crizal Alizé lenses feature improved cleanability.

The new Crizal Alize lenses have an enhanced top coat that produces a contact angle of 116 degrees. After 20,000 cleanings, more than 98 percent of the super hydrophobic top coat remains, protecting the lens from scratches that can result from regular cleanings. Essilor’s proprietary High Surface Density (HSD) process densely packs the top coat molecules together, making the lenses highly resistant to fingerprints, dirt, oil or smudges. As a result, the lenses stay cleaner longer and remain the easiest to clean, according to Essilor. A double-sided, integrated hard coat delivers scratch resistance and durability, and the exclusive Pad Control System facilitates precise edging.

Crizal Alize is available at Fine Eyewear & Eye care, near Avery Ranch and 78717 zip code. For more information,  see main website for contact information. www.FineEyewear.Net

Ocular Complications of Laser-Assisted Eyebrow Epilation

This article reported on three patients with eye pain and photophobia following laser epilation of the eyebrow region. The eye examination included visual acuity, slit-lamp examination, tonometry and fundoscopy. The follow-up period was three months.

Each patient had conjunctival hyperemia in one or both eyes and anterior chamber pigmentary cells. One patient presented with posterior synechiae, which did not respond to treatment.

Laser epilation of the eyebrows may result in anterior uveitis as well as irreversible damage to the iris.

New device seen as speeding glaucoma operations, post-surgical recovery.

Illinois’ Belleville News Democrat (2/12) reported that a new device called the Trabectome “speeds glaucoma operations and post-surgical recovery.” The device works by reducing “pressure in the eye without the need for the filtration or shunts used in traditional glaucoma surgery,” allowing “surgeons to remove tissue so fluid more easily drains out of the eye.” While “traditional glaucoma surgery usually means several weeks of recovery with no lifting or bending,” the “recovery with the Trabectome normally takes about a week.” But, “not all glaucoma patients…are good candidates for the new device.” According to glaucoma researcher Carla J. Siegfried, M.D., “patients in the early to moderate stages of the disease are the best candidates.”
