Frame of the week: ECO-a subtle pink to help your face glow


ECO was conceived by Alessandro Lanaro, founder of Modo. His idea was to create the first eyewear brand with sustainability and social responsibility as its main commitments.

ECO is the only eyewear brand made of 95% recycled content and 63% biobased material. A tree is planted for every frame sold.

Eco’s mission is to add sustainability and social responsibility to a great collection.

Alessandro Lanaro says that they are humbled by the reception in the market place of their collection and are proud of their achievements, notably planting 1 million trees in Cameroon!

ECO’s approach is based on the pillars “Look Good”, “Feel Good” and “Do Good”.

Eyepeace arrives in Weybridge!


We are delighted to now be stocking the innovative new eyelid massager Eyepeace.

Developed by Ophthalmologists to help address the issues of MGD (Meibomian Gland Dysfunction), dry eye, blepharitis and chalazion.

Eyepeace is designed to be a safe, non invasive way to express the meibomian glands by massaging in a vertical motion.

It has been clinically proven to improve  symptoms by enhancing the stability and uniformity of the oily layer of the tear film.

It is an easy, comfortable and effective device to use to help treat dry eye.


Hundred’s of driving licences revoked with Cassie’s law.

Over 600 motorists have had their driving licenses revoked after failing roadside eye tests since the 2013 introduction of Cassie’s law.

Cassie’s mother, Jackie Rason, applied for a change in the law after her 16-year-old daughter died from injuries sustained when an 87 year old motorist lost control of his car.

Under this new law, when a police officer believes that the safety of other road users would be put at risk if a driver with insufficient eye sight remains on the road, they can ask for the licence to be urgently revoked.

Ms Rason told the Press Association “That’s more than 600 people who could still be driving, perhaps without even knowing that there was a problem with their sight. You can’t say that in every case they would have killed somebody, but it is very likely to have prevented fatal accidents and other casualties”.

Ms Rason hopes to continue campaigning for mandatory sight tests for all drivers, with additional examinations for those over the age of 70.

Perhaps now is a good time to remind yourself to make sure you, and your family and friends, have been keeping up to date with your eye examinations.


5 reasons why breastfeeding is good for eyes.

Breastfeeding provides the optimal nutrition for the visual development of children.

Whilst it is known to have many bonuses for children’s general health, breastfeeding is not often discussed at an eye exam. This may soon be about to change as recent studies have shown that breastfeeding has many visual benefits.

Human milk contains carotenoids such as lutein and zeaxanthin which are known to improve macular pigment density. This can have a protective antioxidant effect on infant and adult retinas and protect against age-related macular degeneration. The other antioxidant properties that human milk has could help protect against other types of ocular diseases.

The reduction in the risk and severity of retinal disorders associated with premature birth (retinopathy of prematurity) is one very significant factor of the benefit of breastfeeding

Allergic eye disease has been shown to be reduced by breastfeeding. Although there is only a small amount of evidence to support this.

The incidence of both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes is shown to be reduced through breastfeeding. Both types can potentially have a very negative effect on the health of the eye. Currently there is a limited amount of research into the specific link between breastfeeding and diabetic retinopathy.

Results show that 3D vision (stereopsis) is consistently better in breastfed infants. Good stereopsis indicates greater early visual development which is extremely important during the critical years as the complex visual system evolves.

Advice on duration and exclusivity of breastfeeding always present a challenge to health professionals. However, to date, it is unanimously accepted as being important to breastfeed for at least 17 weeks.
