The Glaucoma Community Launches and More of What You Need to Know for October

Philipp Plein and De Rigo Partner

The Philipp Plein Group and the De Rigo Group have signed a global license for the creation, production and distribution of sunglasses and prescription frames. The license takes effect immediately and the first collection is expected to launch in the second half of 2021. The Philipp Plein eyewear collections will be distributed worldwide through the De Rigo sales network and in the brand’s boutique stores.

The Glaucoma Community Launches

Responsum Health and Prevent Blindness have launched The Glaucoma Community, a free online resource available via browser or mobile app. It offers a personalized Newsfeed and summaries of important glaucoma news and health content, along with Community Chat; translation into seven languages; and the Patient One-Sheet, so patients can securely collect and print medical information.

We’re All Worried About Blue Light

Eyesafe and UnitedHealthcare Vision’s Screen Time 2020 Report revealed that 94 percent of ECPs are “very” to “somewhat concerned” about the impact of screen time on patients’ eyes; and over 77 percent of employers are “somewhat” to “very concerned” about the impact on employees’ eyes and health. Additionally, the average time people use digital devices has grown as more employees work remotely and distance learning becomes more common.
