As an optometrist, I am sometimes asked in the consulting room whether peoples eye are ‘generally the same’.
This got me thinking about the number of different lenses we use to examine peoples eyes and and the possibility that each pair truly is unique.
So if we consider the possible combinations.
Therefore, we can calculate the odds of a spectacle or goggle prescription being unique at nearly 1 in 15,000,000 (160x32x180x8x2).
This may not be 100% statistically or scientifically accurate, but it gives a good feel for just how individual your eyes are. But I am sure you all knew you were unique already.
Excitement was mounting as The Red Carpet opened at the biggest beauty event of the year, The Beauty Awards 2019 with ASOS.
James and Michelle Sutton from Eye Care Cosmetics were lucky to have not one but TWO cosmetics competing in the final and even luckier to win the New Eye Innovation Award 2019 for their Waterproof Eyeliner.
Now is the time to check if your prescription goggles have survived the winter at the bottom of your swim bag, or if you can still see clearly through the lenses. With summer on its way, you may want to think about changing from clear to tinted or even mirrored lenses.
“As an optometrist and regular swimmer, I enjoy sourcing a wide range of goggles and masks to help you see well in the pool, sea or spa.”
