Seeing the World Better Campaign
“Essilor’s ‘Seeing the World Better’ campaign is our company’s way of helping the world see better by raising awareness about the importance of healthy vision and address the alarming number of visual impairment cases in the country. We also hope that through this campaign, Filipinos will start paying more attention to their eyes so they can see the world in a clearer and brighter view,” Dr. Roleda added.
The campaign will drive three important messages:
Prevention: Essilor lenses help prevent age-related eye diseases,
Protection: It also helps provide everyday protection from ultraviolet (UV) rays and harmful blue light
Correction: promote the initial purpose of Essilor which is to help correct eyesight.
Dr. Roleda cites the plethora of electronic devices that we are exposed to everyday, which emits harmful blue lights that damage the retina. “Repetitive exposure to blue light posts threat to our eyes. It may cause oxidative damage, and may be responsible for causing age-related macular degeneration, which can result to blindness.” Wearing protective lenses like Crizal Prevencia, she adds, can do a lot in preventing the detrimental effects of harmful blue light. Crizal Prevencia is the only clear lens that selectively filters harmful blue light from gadgets, LED and UV light while letting through the healthy blue light.
Ultraviolet (UV) rays, on the other hand, contribute to the development of cataracts. Wearing Crizal Forte UV lenses can protect our eyes from these harmful rays.
For those starting around age 40, our eyes can gradually lose the ability to focus on nearby objects; this is an unavoidable condition but it can be corrected, says Dr Roleda. “Essilor Varilux progressive lenses offer a smooth transition from distance vision through intermediate vision to near vision. This means that instead of having just two different viewing zones (near and distant), like with bifocals, Varilux provides the most natural vision correction,” said Dr. Roleda.
I support Seeing the World Better
I know the importance of having to see clearly that is why last year I decided to get my two kids their new glasses. Their old one’s are all full of scratches and not already the correct grade of lenses. Because of the cost of the lenses and the frames for my two kids I was not able to get my own glasses. For me hearing them to see clearly is good for me. But they knew that I also need glasses that giving me difficulty especially in driving.
Yes, having corrective glasses will make a difference and as a single mom I always put my kids first before myself. Soon I will getting my own corrective glasses to make life more easier for me and so my kids would see I very serious in taking care of our eyesight.
Soon I plan to check my youngest eyesight also because he is also into gadgets, computer and tv. It’s just now that I learned there is a lenses for prevention like the Crizal Prevencia only clear lens that selectively filters harmful blue light from gadgets, LED and UV light.
As what they say Prevention, Prevention and Correction early on than to regret in the end.
