How to clean your glasses? Please pay attention!

So I have been noticing several customers lately who seem to always scratch the prescription lenses they have. The lenses we use are the best available and always use either Crizal Alize, Crizal Avance or the equivalent from Zeiss, Kodak, or Hoya for Anti-reflective coatings. The digital progressives and single vision lenses all need to be cleaned in the same manner and have scratch resistant coatings (note - not scratch proof). Please use your cleaning kits and cleaning cloths. A little hand soap and water once in awhile wont hurt either!

Shamir Progressive Lenses enhances vision for smartphones and tablets

Shamir has released a new Progressive Lens designed to enhance vision for smartphones and tablets. Todays modern use of digital devices and screens has become increasingly frequent part of daily life. This presents our eyes with special challenges as they switch back and forth between distant and mid-range viewing and reading small print on smartphones, tablets and other handheld devices.

To provide people with the clarity they need for everyday tasks Shamir created InTouch Progressive Lenses.

Alain Mikli bought by Luxottica!

Design powerhouse Alain Mikli has sold out to giant world dominating Luxottica for likely in the neighborhood of 90 million Euros! Alain Mikli has long been a successful independent eyewear designer and manufacturer in France. We have admired his frames for years, however, they were never for us at The Eye Bar. The designs seemed to be dated the last few years.  Nothing really innovative or fresh. Maybe that will change. Of course its more likely that you might start seeing Alain Mikli everywhere. Its crazy to think one company, Luxottica, owns so many brands of eyewear. If you buy your frames from Pearle Vision, Lenscrafters, Target Optical, Sears Optical, Sunglasses Hut, iLori or Optical Shop of Aspen, they are all owned by Luxoittica! Did you know that Luxottica also owns a major eye insurance company? Yep, they own EyeMed too!
