Donna Karan Returns and More of What You Need to Know for September

Donna Karan Returns

Marchon and G-III Apparel Group have entered into a long-term exclusive global licensing agreement for DKNY and Donna Karan New York eyewear. DKNY sun and optical eyewear will roll out globally in March 2019. Plans are to extend the offering to include Donna Karan New York sun and optical eyewear shortly after. Marchon previously held the licenses for DKNY and Donna Karan New York from 1999 through 2004.

Blue Light Is a Killer

Blue light from digital devices and the sun transforms vital molecules in the retina into cell killers, according to a University of Toledo study recently published in the journal Scientific Reports. The process leads to age-related macular degeneration and the death of photoreceptor cells in the retina. The study found that blue light exposure causes trigger reactions that generate poisonous chemical molecules in photoreceptor cells.

Optometry Cares Again

Optometry Cares is again accepting applications for scholarships. This round more than $30,000 will be available for the 2018-19 school year. Five are available to student members of the AOA and the AOSA. Each school will select one nominee per scholarship, to be submitted to Optometry Cares no later than October 31, 2018 at 11:59pm (CST). Contact Kelsey Wolf, or (314) 983-4209.

Seco Bon Temps

In 2018, SECO attracted 6,500 attendees. In 2019, the annual conference providing optometric educational opportunities will be held Feb. 20–24 at the New Orleans Ernest Morial Convention Center. With the move from Atlanta, SECO has taken the opportunity to recraft its offerings with enhanced continuing education totaling more than 50 hours with added Saturday and Sunday sessions allowing attendees to take less time away from their practice. Registration opens Oct 1.
