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.



The Best Overall Progressive Lens, Now Powered by AI

Engineered with Behavioral Artificial Intelligence and utilizing new XR-motion™ technology, Varilux XR series goes beyond prescription and eye physiology to consider the patient’s visual behavior and design a progressive lens that respects how
their eyes naturally move.

Varilux XR series comes in two versions, Varilux® XR design and Varilux® XR track. The Varilux XR track lens provides an additional level of personalization by incorporating the exclusive Near Vision Behavior Measurement, providing up to 25% more near vision width3 according to the patient’s need, so patients get the highest level of customization.
