Adding New Technology And Fashion For Spring
By Monica Allison, O.D. Stone Oak Vision Source (210) 495-9020 t Stone Oak Vision Source, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of technology available for our patients’ eye care needs. With our recent move to our new location, we have room for more equipment, more doctors, and more frames to choose from! I’d like to highlight a piece of our new equipment, the Oculus Keratograph 5 M, and two new frame lines we have added over the past six months Oliver Peoples and IC Berlin. The OCULUS Keratograph 5M is an advanced corneal topographer with a builtin real keratometer and a color camera optimized for external imaging. Unique features include examining the meibomian glands, non-invasive tear film break-up time
and the tear meniscus height measurement and evaluating the lipid layer. Many people suffer from dry eye here in San Antonio so we are excited to have an instrument that will actually measure a baseline and improvement of our patients when they are going through their treatment regimen. Through imaging and photos, patients will be able to see their eye condition from start to finish with reassurance that their treatment plan is working. The equipment also improves our ability to fit difficult contact lenses through its extensive mapping software. We are one of the first offices in San Antonio to have this technology. Regarding our frame lines, Oliver Peoples started in 1986 when opticians Larry
and Dennis Leight fulfilled their dream by opening an optical boutique on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, California. In 1987, the Oliver Peoples collection, inspired by vintage frames purchased at an estate sale, was introduced and is now sold at premium eyewear boutiques worldwide. A favorite among celebrities, Oliver Peoples is known for their distinct style and attention to detail. The other new line we are showcasing is IC Berlin. IC Berlin is a German based company that was founded in 1996 by Ralph Anderl. The company produces eyewear from a stainless spring steel sheet metal and uses a patented hinge design that eliminates the use of any screws. These eyewear pieces are durable, extremely lightweight, high-end, and handcrafted in Berlin. Ralph Anderl began selling his eyewear out of a small apartment with a shop front in Berlin, which later expanded to other locations. His original apartment/shop is still open today! Ralph, eventually, took his design to an optical exposition (Mido) in Milan. He was unable to secure a stand, so he decided to
Celtic Thunder Singer To Perform In San Antonio Submitted By Donna Deen ony Music recording artist and Celtic Thunder lead singer Emmet Cahill will present a concert at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church on Wednesday, May 3 at 7:30 p.m. to perform songs from his debut orchestral album, “Emmet Cahill’s Ireland.” His album reached #1 on the Amazon, iTunes and Billboard World Music charts and offers the very best of the
traditional Irish repertoire (“Danny Boy,” “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling,” “My Cavan Girl,” The Parting Glass” and more). Cahill’s concert will feature many of the songs from the album and will also include Broadway favorites, movie hits and folk classics, plus an occasional operatic aria that will showcase his classical vocal training received at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin.
In addition to a full solo concert, Cahill will also be a featured soloist with the St. Mark Parish Choir in a special performance of Alice Parker’s “Melodious Accord: A Concert of Praise” under the guidance of Gary A. Marks, Director of Music. Don’t miss an unforgettable night of songs and tales from the Emerald Isle with Ireland’s most exciting young tenor! General admission tickets are $30 and
walk around the exhibition with a trench coat full of IC Berlin samples, much like those used by counterfeit watch sellers. After creating a great deal of buzz, IC Berlin was gifted a small stand and showed officially for the first time at another optical exhibition, Silmo Paris. IC Berlin won a prestigious award at this particular show for its beautiful eyewear. Today IC Berlin has managed to take the company worldwide and is sold in more than 60 countries. We are excited about these new additions to our practice and very happy to personally show them to you at your next visit with us in our new location.
