Bausch + Lomb has announced the introduction of PeroxiClear™ 3% hydrogen peroxide cleaning and disinfecting solution, a peroxide-based lens care solution. The solution offers a welcome alternative peroxide-based product. According to Bausch + Lomb, PeroxiClear solution has been proven to keep contact lenses cleaner and moister for longer.

"We've been hearing from many doctors that there's been an increasing need to address their patients' contact lens discomfort. Bausch + Lomb is proud to now provide an alternative option and innovation with PeroxiClear," said Joseph Barr, OD, MS, FAAO, vice president, Medical Affairs, Pharmaceuticals & Vision Care, Bausch + Lomb. "Bausch + Lomb's mission has always been to help patients see better to live better, and with the introduction of PeroxiClear cleaning and disinfecting solution, we can now offer them the most advanced peroxide-based lens solution on the market today."

PeroxiClear solution is a unique formula that contains Triple-Moist Technology™, which helps to provide up to 20 hours of moisture. PeroxiClear provides the disinfection efficacy you expect from a hydrogen peroxide solution, but neutralizes in only four hours, as compared to six with other peroxides.

"PeroxiClear solution is the most-advanced peroxide-based solution that I’ve used in years," said Brad Oatney, O.D. "With PeroxiClear solution, I can continue to offer my patients the best in eye care products, which is always my primary goal."

Optifog SystemEssilor has announced the launch of its latest innovation, the Optifog® Smart Textile. This new technology allows the Optifog lenses' anti-fog properties to be activated by a microfiber dry cloth that the consumer uses to wipe his lenses.

Covered by an international patent application, the exclusive Optifog System technology, combining the Optifog lenses with the Optifog Smart Textile, has the power to activate the lenses' properties using microfiber dry cloth with specific molecules. To invent and industrialize this new textile, Essilor research teams have consulted various textile research institutes as well as specialized industrials partners all over the world before selecting a leading niche textile provider. Two years ago, when Essilor had created a new category of lenses with Optifog lenses, the anti-fogging properties were activated with a liquid to apply on lenses.

MYKITA Unveils Its Latest Eyewear Collections PDF

Eyewear producer MYKITA has recently launched its latest eyewear collections.


Material: Stainless Steel

Mikita Decades Philo / Philomene

The conscious two-dimensional design of the Philomene and Philo models gives these frames a scissors-shaped silhouette. A defining concept behind these frames was the circle as a geometric element. The combination of glossy gold and silver with a silky matt finish reinforces this impression and emphasises the contrasting frame dimensions. Low-set double bridges and prominent, pinched top corners create a new elegance.

Collection NO 1/ EDMUND & HUDSON

Material: Stainless Steel

Mykita Edmund / Hudson

EDMUND & HUDSON combine the sports/casual look with perfect light protection. The duo’s design incorporates cues from expansive 1950s frames. Wide temples and a wide bridge avert sunrays from above and the sides, while the snug-fitting browline and nose similarly keep incoming light to a minimum. Bold frame colours combined with mirrored lenses deliver protection and excellent vision: whether viewing distant mountains, the sea or the person sitting next to you.

Collection NO 2/ NADA

Material: Acetate

Mykita Nada

Testing out materials to the limits of the possible is a labour of love at MYKITA. The NADA model is a classic example. The delicate frame is made of acetate, a material ostensibly associated with the very opposite; acetate frames are normally bold and chunky. This coupled with the eccentric double bridge and the Guadeloupe/Gold Flash colour combination is what lends NADA its flamboyant charm.

Collection NO 2/ OLGA

Material: Acetate

Mykita Olga

Olga is a statement – neither round nor angular, and if anything probably belonging to the “blowup”category. The extremely full-bodied material used for OLGA gives this model a sculpture-like look. Black, jade-style Misty Green, sky-coloured Misty Blue and translucent Taupe each make their own contribution to ensuring that this model leaves a lasting impression.

Students from the Miami Ad School in San Francisco have come up with the idea of installing solar panels onto an iconic Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses with the assistance of designer Sayalee Kaluskar. Each time you are out wearing the pair of Wayfarers, soaking up the sun, so too, will the solar panels on these sunnies.

Solar Powered Sunnies

Sayalee says: "Ray-Ban wanted people to get more out of their sunglasses, so we made a pair with built-in solar panels that let you charge your iPhone 5. Why? Because, nothing is cooler than Ray-Bans on a sunny day and nothing is worse than a dead phone at night."

After four years of research and development, Hoet Eyewear has launched the 'Made in Belgium' 3D laser-printed eyeglasses made of titanium. The 3D technology offers a number of unprecedented options in terms of design. In addition, this technology is eco-friendly – a feature that must not be overlooked. The form is essential; the technique is a tool to achieve that form. Patrick Hoet, who was on of the founders of theo eyewear and is still involved at theo, has designed the titanium glasses.

Titanium 3D Printed - Hoet Eyewear

A subsidiary of the listed company Picanol, Melotte, will produce the glasses for Hoet Eyewear. Melotte is an ambitious technology company, which is mainly known for medical applications.

The Hoet Couture eyeglasses fit in well with the "classical" Hoet collection. They too, are modern and beautiful. Quality and comfort as always are the basic precepts. The eyeglasses are rust-free and anti-allergic, light, yet durable and well-fitting.

Camera Lets Blind People Find Their Way PDF

GISTEelke Folmer and Vinitha Khambadkar think blind people could do without their white canes and instead navigate with a camera around their necks that gives spoken guidance in response to hand gestures. Folmer and Khambadkar, researchers at the University of Nevada, U.S., presented the technology last week at a computer symposium. Known as the Gestural Interface for Remote Spatial Perception, which they abbreviate as GIST, the system utilizes a 3D camera sensor to analyze and identify objects in its field of view. "GIST lets you extract information from your environment," Folmer says.

Spatial perception is a challenging task for people who are blind due to the limited functionality and sensing range of hands. The researchers developed a wearable gestural interface (GIST) that offers spatial perception functionality through the novel appropriation of the user's hands into versatile sensing rods. Using a wearable depth-sensing camera, GIST analyzes the visible physical space and allows blind users to access spatial information about this space using different hand gestures. By allowing blind users to directly explore the physical space using gestures, GIST allows for the closest mapping between augmented and physical reality, which facilitates spatial interaction. A user study with eight blind users evaluated GIST in its ability to help perform everyday tasks that rely on spatial perception, such as grabbing an object or interacting with a person.

GIST is a useful, low-cost technology that can potentially give greater independence to users with visual impairments, as it may help them perform everyday tasks, such as grabbing an object or approaching a person that are difficult to perform using existing assistive technologies.
