Make sure you guys protect you eyes and skin. When going outdoors.
Wear sunglasses regularly. Not only will sunglasses protect the delicate skin around your eyes from the sun, but it will also help prevent squinting, which directly contributes to wrinkling. Don't forget to use sunscreen as well. Have a good one folks!
All ready for pick-up! A patient wanted some really nice stylish sunglasses. She found the perfect pair. She wanted a little custom work done to it as well. As you can see it turned out amazing. This is what she asked for and we got her what she wanted. Here you will see a custom Gradient tint, Flash mirror coating with a backside A/R coating on a Progressive sunglasses. BLING'iN !!!!!!
This is the "Ultimate summer pair made to order."
If you would like something made special to order. Feel free to ask. Let us get you exactly what you want.
You heard that right! Let's celebrate our Mother's!!! It's that time of the year. Where we take that time to reflect and appreciate all that our mom has gone through and done for us. Raising kids is no joke. Growing up and now a bit more mature. I realize how import it is to show appreciation to my mother. Nothing we can do can amount to what our mom's have done in raising us. But spending the time and day to show our appreciation can let her know how much we care.
Last year I got my mom an exam, new frame, and progressives lenses. Instead of flowers. Something she will have and last for a while. What will you guys be doing for your mom this year? Whatever it is or may be. I'm sure she will love it.
Colorful, gaudy, bright. Like a rainbow. Almost too good to be true. It's the same with our glasses. We have them coated, not painted. And now they shine in exciting colors, arising from the fact that light is refracted. With the electric! PVD coating, we have succeeded for the first time to make stainless steel colorful. In this case, no color comes into the metal, but a crystal layer that reflects certain wavelengths of light. Like the rainbow. Just beautiful. Only permanent. The layer is ten times thinner than a human hair, not scratched and makes the patented ic! berlin joint extremely smooth and wear resistant.
For the A/W 2014-15 season MYKITA and Damir Doma have designed a new feminine classic. “DAWN” is the most recent product of the ongoing design collaboration between the two brands and made its first public appearance yesterday, during Damir Doma’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week.
Making a come back. Sure to an even bigger hit this year! Def a must cop for California spring/summer weather, even for our winter! LOL Living in the west coast we are fortunate to have the best weather IMO. With the gorgeous weather we have for the most part of the year. Our options for apparel and styles are just about endless. Lucky Californian can rocks these badboy just about all year long. The Green is definitely growing on me.
In 2014, spring begin with the vernal equinox on March 20 at 12:57 P.M. EDT.
Being that it is just around the corner. Who's doing spring cleaning? Well, when and if you do so. Please keep in mind that if you have pair of glasses that you no longer use, or maybe intending to discard. Here at Golden Vision Optometry will do collect glasses for donation to third-world countries.
Here at Golden Vision Optometry we try to make a difference in people lives. Whether it is to help patients in our office or outside. We're partnered up with 3 difference organization along with the communities surrounding us to help serve those globally who cannot afford or do not have access to eyewear.
As a small token of our appreciation. When you participate. We are offering $10 voucher for future eyewear purchases from our office. Not that you really need an incentive to help those in need.
Please keep in mind. One $10 voucher person, not per glasses. Valid for any future eyewear purchases. Lens, Frame, A/R coating, Tint, Transition, and so on...
(offer exclude contacts lenses)
Corneal inlays and onlays are tiny lenses or other optical devices inserted into the cornea to reshape the front surface of the eye to improve vision. In fact, some of these devices resemble very smallcontact lenses.
The primary use of current corneal inlays (the term "corneal onlays" is used less frequently these days) is to improve near vision and reduce the need for reading glasses in older adults who have presbyopia.
Because corneal inlays are implanted within the tissue of the cornea, this type of refractive surgery is less invasive than phakic IOL procedures that involve larger implantable lenses that are placed deeper in the eye, in front of or behind the pupil.
Through use of corneal inlays and onlays for vision correction, eye surgeons may avoid complications sometimes associated with procedures such as LASIK and PRK because no corneal tissue is removed. And these devices may have fewer risks than implantable lenses because the surgery takes place within the cornea, not inside the eye.
Kamra Corneal Inlay
While the technology is not yet FDA-approved, clinical trials began in early 2006 for one device created by AcuFocus, which has formed a business alliance with Bausch + Lomb.
Previously called the ACI 7000 and now known as the Kamra, this corneal inlay is designed to correct presbyopia. During the Kamra procedure, a thin flap is created in the center of the cornea where the device is inserted. The flap then is replaced over the inlay to hold it in place.

The procedure takes less than 15 minutes and can be performed in the eye surgeon's office. Sutures are not required, and only topical anesthesia in the form of eye drops is used.
According to Bausch + Lomb, the Kamra is designed to block certain light rays reflecting from near objects that ordinarily would not be focused correctly by the presbyopic eye.
"Its optical principle is the pinhole phenomenon, which when used in photography (in terms of a small aperture), creates greater depth-of-focus and thus allows clear vision at all distances — near, intermediate and distance," said Vance Thompson, MD, who is participating in clinical trials for the device.
Thompson, a member of AllAboutVision.com's editorial board, said it's important to remember that the Kamra is still in investigational phases, but that early results are very promising.
"Having worked in the field of presbyopia correction for more than 18 years, I find it is such a pleasure to use a device like the AcuFocus corneal inlay," Thompson said. "It provides our patients who have needed reading glasses with good near vision, while still maintaining good distance vision."
Thompson said the Kamra is just 3.8 millimeters in diameter and only 10 microns thick (about 1/10th the thickness of a piece of paper). The device is made of an opaque biocompatible polymer called Kynar, a thermoplastic material that softens in heat and hardens in cooler conditions.
Raindrop Near Vision Corneal Inlay
Researchers from Mexico presented promising early results from surgical implantation of the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay (ReVision Optics) during a 2009 American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery conference.
Formerly known as PresbyLens in the U.S. and Vue+ in Europe, the tiny (2mm diameter) inlay is made of medical-grade hydrogel plastic similar to that used for soft contact lenses and has optical characteristics that are almost identical to the human cornea, according to the company.
The inlay improves both near and intermediate vision, as demonstrated by a study involving 38 people who received the Raindrop Near Vision implant in their non-dominant eye:
All people enrolled in the study ranged in age from 45-56.
Six months after receiving the implant, most people could perform near vision tasks such as reading a newspaper without the need for eyeglasses.
Most subjects also did not require eyeglasses for intermediate tasks such as reading a computer screen.
All study participants had 20/25 or better distance vision in both eyes.
Only one adverse event was reported, when an inlay needed to be repositioned.
The Raindrop Near Vision corneal inlay is placed within the cornea under a LASIK-style flap. When in position, the inlay changes the curvature of the cornea so the front of the eye acts much like a multifocal contact lens.
In June 2012, ReVision Optics announced the Raindrop Near Vision inlay advanced into the final phase of its U.S. clinical trial required for FDA approval.
In earlier phases of the trial, patients who had the device implanted in the cornea of their non-dominant eye had an average improvement of five lines of near visual acuity and one to two lines of intermediate visual acuity on a standard eye chart, while maintaining binocular distance vision of 20/20.
Phase 3 of the U.S. clinical trial will be conducted at a number of specialized ophthalmology centers across the country. If you are interested in participating in the trial and want to find out if you are eligible, you can learn more at the ReVision Optics website.
The Flexivue Microlens (Presbia Cooperatief U.A., Amsterdam) uses a laser, which creates a tiny "pocket" just below the eye's surface. Eye surgeons use a specially developed instrument to then insert the microlens for correction of presbyopia. The pocket seals itself to hold the lens in place.
The lens is made of hydrophilic polymer, a highly wettable synthetic substance often used in intraocular lenses that permanently replace the eye's natural lens in cataract surgery. However, the Flexivue Microlens is permanent but can be easily removed and replaced if a stronger prescription is needed.
The tiny lens is 3 mm in diameter and only 20 microns thick at the edges — about a quarter of the width of a human hair.
This lens is being researched outside the U.S.
W. Bruce Jackson, MD, University of Ottawa professor and chairman of ophthalmology, has helped pioneer another minimally invasive vision correction technology known as the corneal onlay. These devices are made of mostly liquid, genetically engineered collagen-like material.

Corneal onlays do not require a thin flap, as occurs with inlays, but instead are placed in an artificially created pocket under the outer layer of the cornea (epithelium). This pocket then holds the onlay in place until the disturbed epithelial cells grow back to cover the device.
Jackson told AllAboutVision.com that laser energy ultimately might be applied to the onlay to sculpt it for vision correction, just as the eye's natural surface is now reshaped in LASIK and PRK.
The corneal onlay technology described by Jackson is still in experimental stages.
Other researchers are investigating techniques such as using biocompatible adhesives to attach an onlay temporarily to the outside of the cornea long enough to allow epithelial cells to grow over and secure the implant.
Reversibility is a major advantage of corneal inlays and onlays, which can be removed at any time.
