ESE’s Diva Eyewear Launches Full Scale Collection For Fall

ESE’s Diva Eyewear Launches Full Scale Collection For Fall

With five new optical styles, Diva’s fall release shows off its beauty and diversity with a variety of shapes and elegant metal treatments. Twisted, pressed metal and plastic work is the latest theme to make an appearance in this dynamic jewelry collection. This clever point of design is often utilized on the front of a model and is perfectly balanced by the Austrian Swarovski Crystals that coat their designs. This combination adds richness while not overwhelming. Additionally, the collection diversifies with several new, geometric shapes. An array of new acetate colors and finishes compliment these new features. Multi toned colors with striated and marble finishes ensure that each frame has an exciting, feminine look. Tones such as violet, aqua, coral, silver, blue, and forest green in addition to browns and black are just some of the color shades that are prevalent.   For more information visit www.eseyewear.com

Wearing the Proper Eye Protection While Playing Sports Today Can Help Prevent Injury, Save Sight for Years to Come

Wearing the Proper Eye Protection While Playing Sports Today Can Help Prevent Injury, Save Sight for Years to Come

Every year, thousands of Americans suffer an eye injury related to playing sports according to new data from Prevent Blindness. To help educate the public on the importance of proper eye protection while playing sports, Prevent Blindness has declared September as Sports Eye Safety Awareness Month. Eye injuries can range from corneal abrasions, inflamed iris, fracture of the eye socket, swollen or detached retinas or even a traumatic cataract. And in some cases, a significant eye injury can cause permanent vision loss. For individuals with vision issues, especially those who can only see clearly or have limited vision through one eye, proper eye protection is even more essential. When Ari Rosenthal was five years old, he was diagnosed with amblyopia, or more commonly known as lazy eye. In Ari’s case his right eye was significantly farsighted. The imbalance led his brain to significantly favor the stronger, left eye. If left untreated, the result would have been permanent vision loss in the right eye. Unfortunately, one day while playing dodge ball, a ball accidentally struck Ari directly on his stronger left eye, causing multiple corneal abrasions. “When the ball hit me I opened...

Silhouette LITE-Twist: Technically sophisticated. Colorfully bold.

Silhouette LITE-Twist: Technically sophisticated. Colorfully bold.

With the rimless Silhouette LITE-Twist, head designer Roland Keplinger has put forward a congenial design concept that redefines eyewear as an accessory: endowed with the Silhouette DNA, high-tech materials and precise, detailed workmanship of the highest class, enhanced by innovative technologies and accentuated with bold color contrasts. This frame is a personal statement of younger, fashion-conscious people vying for a distinctive eye-catching look. The starting point of the unusual temple design is a flat pre-embossed component with finely punched perforations. In a very technically demanding process, the thin deco element is wrapped around the SPX+ cylinder of the screwless Silhouette “snap hinge” and then threaded through a fine opening on the outer edge of the temple. With contrasting print appliqués, the smart finish is an “integrated” decorative component. This innovative “weave” technology forms the sophisticated, technical foundation of the LITE-Twist design. The temple is finished with the SPX+ element, in which the titanium part is anchored, forming a unit with a clearly defined ‘high end’. The delicate, one-piece temple end with a colored groove,...
