Consumers today value both the convenience of shopping online & the assurance and expertise that a trusted retail chain has to offer. In India 14% people who need vision correction end up not buying eyewear because they find the buying journey very complicated & inconvenient. Keeping this in mind, Titan Eyeplus has launched a strategic partnership with the country’s E-commerce giant – Flipkart. During the upcoming Big Billion Day, a customer buying a frame on Flipkart can walk into any of the 500+ Titan Eyeplus stores and get a lens free.
This winning combination will allow the customer to choose from a wide variety frames from the comfort of his home, and walk into an Eyeplus store to complete the purchase. Choice of frame is driven by style which is more personal and does not need technical help. On the other hand, lenses are more technical and need to be customized by a customer’s lifestyle. Intervention of an optometrist ensures the best solution. With this partnership both the players are together ensuring best optical shopping experience.

A recent survey conducted by DSM Nutritional Products found that 83 percent of adults in the U.S. believe worsening eye health is inevitable with age. What many people don’t realize is that there’s a connection between healthy eyes and proper nutrition, and it goes beyond eating carrots.
According to Dr. Kimberly Reed, optometrist and Ocular Nutrition Society board member, “Incorporating certain nutrients into the diet can support a lifetime of healthy vision and help protect against serious conditions, including cataracts and age-related macular degeneration (AMD). The latter affects more than 2 million Americans and can lead to severe visual impairment.”

Approximately half a billion people worldwide have correctable vision issues, but lack access to quality vision care.

With the introduction of Abbott's iDesign Dx system, U.S. ophthalmologists now have a diagnostic tool that can capture five optical measurements in one three-second scan to determine the patient's visual abnormalities. This highly advanced diagnostic tool measures the internal optics and surface of the eye more precisely than conventional methods, allowing doctors to fully evaluate imperfections that result in poor vision. Obtaining these measurements in one three-second scan enables ophthalmologists to screen patients more efficiently to determine if they are eligible for LASIK or other refractive surgery and to assist in diagnosis of other conditions.
