Eastern States Eyewear Premieres Six New Chantal Thomass Styles

Eastern States Eyewear Premieres Six New Chantal Thomass Styles

Eastern States Eyewear is proud to introduce six additional optical styles in Chantal Thomass. An esteemed French lingerie brand and designer noted for its feminine, risqué design, Chantal Thomass was first premiered at Vision Expo West of this past year. The current release mixes materials in several styles, with the five of the fronts composed of acetate and one of monel. Design features mimic the lingerie with lace and brocade prints, sleek curves representing the female silhouette, and even temples that resemble a corset. The upswept modified rectangle shapes are a nod to the brand’s vintage influences while still graced with a modern twist. Colors include the brand’s signature black and pink combination, animal prints, and glittery translucent patterns. “Great product has a certain positive energy that is hard to define but easy to spot once you witness people react to it,” explains Jason Shyer, ESE Managing Director. “We are thrilled that Chantal Thomass has so quickly attained this type of acceptance with our customers.” For additional information contact Eastern States Eyewear (800) 645-3710; web site www.eseyewear.com

Optometrist Perspective by Harvey Yamamoto, OD

Optometrist Perspective by Harvey Yamamoto, OD

A giant “Hello” to all of you. March is now here and we are dealing with windy days in my neck of the woods. Trees are tumbling down with many branches falling on the road to work. Some folks have had an entire tree limb fall on their car. Very scary stuff. Hope all is well with my readers. Stay well my friends and most of all, eat healthy and live a long life. New stuff is here. During November of 2013, GP Specialists began their study on their new small iSight Scleral lenses. Many of our doctors have been inquiring about smaller scleral lenses. Our R&D department began to conduct in-house R&D over several months until they came up with the new and exciting 13.4mm scleral lens to go along with their 16.4mm sclerals which have been performing exceptionally well. Never one to be caught sleeping, GP Specialists decided to formulate a smaller version based upon the polynomials of the original design. They incorporated several large scleral experts across the country to evaluate the smaller version. After 4 months of extensive testing, the new sclerals performed flawlessly. New patients have found that the new smaller sclerals were easier to insert/remove and not as intimidating...
