Presenting the new logo
Our eye health supplement Viteyes has had a refreshing re-brand with a new look logo.
A recent report showed three-quarters of us suffered poor eye health in the past 12 months.
This week, we have headed up the motorway to the ICC, Birmingham for the The Royal College of Ophthalmologists Annual Congress 2014. Every year, we hire a stand and take Viteyes brochures, samples and pens to give out to the delegates as we tell them about Viteyes – our nutritional supplement for eye health.
We emphasise the strong research base behind Viteyes – as this is of high importance to prescribers such as ophthalmologists and GP’s. Evidence based prescribing ensures that patients receive the treatments that give the best results.
Gift of Sight is the charity set up to raise funds for the pioneering eye research at Southampton Eye Unit lead by Professor Andrew Lotery. He specialises in macular degeneration and his team are at the forefront of new technologies to help develop new treatments in the future. Other areas of research are glaucoma, inherited retinal diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa and childhood conditions such as nystagmus.
During December Winchester holds a Christmas market and the town centre looks truly magical . A fundraising carol concert organised by Gift of Sight in Winchester College Chapel is dimly lit and we sponsor the purchase of pen torches with our logo on for everyone to use to read the hymn sheets. This gives an insight into how debilitating macular degeneration can be to those of us with full vision. This year’s concert on the 16th December is sold out already.
National Eye Health Week starts today and runs until Sunday 22nd September. It encourages us all to take more care of our eyes and as one of the official sponsors, we are getting behind these important health messages. Some local opticians may be backing this campaign and as an optical supplier we are lending our support. These tips below are advice from opticians that could help to save someone’s sight.
We are proud to have been asked to sponsor the UK’s fourth National Eye Health Week. This is a collaboration between opticians, ophthalmologists, eye health charities and organisations. It aims to encourage everyone to have regular sight tests and raise awareness of the importance of healthy eyes.
It takes place from 16 to 22 September 2013, organised by The Eyecare Trust and includes events around the country.
We have just spent a busy weekend attending the optical trade show Optrafair 2013 at the NEC in Birmingham. We exhibited our prescription swimming goggles, Viteyes and Eye Care Cosmetics to the delegates – opticians, contact lens practitioners and optical assistants looking to stock new and exciting ranges. Our new mirrored prescription goggles were modelled by Konnie and Mark from Hels Belles Model Agency.
