See it Like Beckham

Safilo Group and David Beckham have signed a global 10-year agreement for the eponymous license for sunglasses and prescription glasses. “I wear sunglasses all the time and this is a category that I love,” said Beckham (pictured with Angelo Trocchia, CEO of Safilo Group). “I’m really enjoying the process of creating a collection with the Safilo team and I can’t wait to launch it next year.” The first David Beckham eyewear collection will launch in January 2020.

Glaucoma-Detecting AI

IBM and NYU conducted a study to explore if visual function can estimate the presence of glaucoma. They discovered that there is information in retina imaging data that can help to assess glaucoma’s presence. This could one day help professionals to better predict the progression and onset of the disease — without the need for multiple and time-intensive tests — and adjust treatments accordingly.

Contact Lens Update

The Centre for Ocular Research & Education (CORE) has published the latest edition of Contact Lens Update. Available at no cost, Issue 47, edited by Dr. Kate Gifford, specifically focuses on the recently published International Myopia Institute reports. The issue includes a feature article providing a short summary of each report, a downloadable fact sheet, and a poster by Dr. Noel Brennan that challenges understanding on the efficacy of myopia control interventions.
