Are your eyes ready for a winter adventure? Did you know that UV rays can be up to eight times more powerful on ski slopes than elsewhere? The Eyesite Sports Vision team are experts in advising patients on eye protection. Ski goggles are a very important piece of kit – they protect your eyes from snow, wind, and harmful UV rays whilst also improving your vision so that you can fully appreciate that beautiful mountain view. Olympic Swiss alpine ski racer Didier Défago favours Bollé goggles, available from Eyesite:

“These goggles have a sport soul, with a touch of fashion, that I really love. At high speed, every detail matters for aerodynamic efficiency.” A great choice of lens for snowsports in all conditions is the Modulator from Bollé. A state-of-the-art, high contrast, light reactive lens allows you to ski all day with superior visibility whether in bright sunshine or flat light. Don’t forget that you can add a prescription insert to many ski and snowboard goggles including the Duchess and Gravity models pictured.

Find out about Blue-Violet light Blue-Violet light is transmitted by computers, tablets, smartphones and low energy light bulbs. Blue-Violet light was recently identified as being harmful to the retina. Causing longterm damage to our eyes, it can accelerate the onset of Age-related Macular Degeneration.

2: PRESERVES YOUR OVERALL WELL-BEING By letting essential visible light pass through (including good Blue-Turquoise light) which regulates sleep/wake cycles, mood and cognitive performances. 3: PROVIDES OPTIMAL VISION AND DURABLE TRANSPARENCY By offering the best protection against reflections, scratches, smudges, dust and water.


Marvellous multifocals: contact lenses In 2014, Eyesite expects an even higher demand for multifocal contact lenses as more of our patients see them as a valid addition to multifocal glasses. Don’t rule yourself out of wearing contact lenses because you don’t think you have a suitable prescription. Technological advances in contact lenses mean that it’s rare when we can’t find the perfect lens to suit any eye. Clariti® 1 Day Multifocal is the world’s first silicone hydrogel, daily disposable contact lens. This contact lens by Sauflon uses a patented manufacturing process called AquaGen™ which ensures a highly wettable lens surface and high water content, providing exceptional comfort that lasts all day.

“With my multifocals I can see where the ball’s gone, and also mark my scorecard!” David, Eyesite MD and Golf Nut

“I can’t believe how comfortable they are” Hilary, 55, first time contact lens wearer
