Alcon, the global leader in eye care and a division of Novartis, is launching a new consumer education campaign called Invisible Edge with the help of Olympic gold- and silver-medalist Laurie Hernandez and two-time gold-medalist Tobin Heath. These star athletes will be shining a spotlight on the importance of clear vision, including the role of top-performing Alcon DAILIES® contact lenses in helping give “everyday” athletes an edge while competing at any level. The Invisible Edge campaign is based on a new survey that found clear eyesight tops the list of attributes that help nearly three in four “everyday” athletes perform at their best.

Adlens, the global leader in adjustable focus eyewear, has launched its ground-breaking adjustable prescription eyewear ‘AdlensFocuss™’, the greatest advancement in optics in more than 50 years.
Vision inevitably changes with age and people often need different strength glasses to see at near, intermediate and far distances. Progressive lenses are an option but they have a restricted usable lens area. A GFK Roper Study has shown one-third of wearers say they have trouble adjusting to them with seven to eight percent of wearers saying they cannot adjust to them at all.
AdlensFocuss provides the benefits of a single vision lens – full frame viewing area – with the best features of a progressive lens – the ability to see at different distances. They are prescription glasses with proprietary technology; a unique flexible membrane that allows the power to be adjusted by simply turning small dials on the inside of the frames. AdlensFocuss lenses offer at least four times more viewing area than traditional progressive lenses and come encased in a fashion-forward frame from award-winning designer Blake Kuwahara.

Alimera Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALIM) (Alimera), a pharmaceutical company that specializes in the research, development and commercialization of prescription ophthalmic pharmaceuticals, announced today that many retina specialists throughout the U.S. are now using ILUVIEN® (fluocinolone acetonide intravitreal implant) 0.19 mg to treat patients with diabetic macular edema (DME). The first injections of ILUVIEN in the U.S. were captured during a live web event attended by more than 250 eye care professionals.

One in four children has an undetected vision problem, and ten million American students have vision conditions that can impact learning.

VSP® Vision Care, the largest not-for-profit vision benefits and services company in the U.S., is doing just that by launching #EyeGiveBack. Now through June 30, 2015, when a VSP Direct™ individual vision insurance plan is purchased through VSPDirect.com/EyeGiveBack, VSP will donate an eye exam and glasses to a child in need – up to a retail value of $1 million.

Approximately half a billion people worldwide have correctable vision issues, but lack access to quality vision care. They are unable to see the words in a book or on a chalkboard and even more so to reach their potential and bring their goals and dreams into focus. As part of an ongoing effort to shine a spotlight on this issue and the importance of healthy, enhanced vision, Transitions Optical and vision care nonprofit OneSight have teamed up with GRAMMY® and CMA Award winning music artist Darius Rucker to launch a public service announcement aimed toward raising awareness and inviting others to join the cause at www.onesight.org.

If a child cannot see clearly, he may have trouble learning, a problem that will impact his entire life. Jennie Garth, well-known actress and mother of three, knows firsthand that healthy vision can change everything for a child – at school and at home.

The campaign inspires people to help provide good eye health and vision correction for children in need across the US. The campaign is simple: see good, share good, and make good happen.

An eye-opening stat: almost 70 percent of people from around the world would rather give up 10 years of their life, or even sacrifice one of their limbs, than lose their eyesight. Yet less than one third of those polled take the basic steps necessary to preserve eye sight, according to the “Barometer of Global Eye Health,” a new global survey released today by Bausch + Lomb.
This first-of-its-kind public opinion poll sheds new light on the state of consumer awareness, attitudes and behaviors related to eye health. While 80 percent of visual impairment is preventable if detected and treated early enough, according to the findings not enough people are getting regular eye exams and their reasons for doing so vary wildly.
