Back to School is Approaching...make sure to book that Eye Test!

Hope that everyone has had a great Christmas!
Only two weeks until our kids head back to school. Remember to make sure that they have had their comprehensive eye exam before then. Eye exams for children are extremely important, as early identification of a child's vision problem can be crucial and children often are more responsive to treatment when problems are diagnosed early.
For school-aged children it is recommended that they should have an eye exam every two years or as directed by their Optometrist.

Bulimba Festival 2017

 

Are you ready for Queensland’s largest suburban street party? The Bulimba Festival returns to bring an offering that’s bigger and better than ever before.

The Bulimba Festival returns this year as an all-in celebration of the vibrant community that makes Bulimba such a rad place to be. Food, fun and entertainment are all on offer for a huge day out that’s suitable for young and old. The entertainment situation this year is next level, with the likes of Jebediah, Maddy Jayne, Electrik Lemonade, Bugs, Machine Age and more spread across two stages to keep the crowds happy.

It wouldn’t be a festival without food, glorious food, right? This is all taken care of, with a great selection of food trucks and market stalls setting up shop for the festival. This year also sees the return of the Memorial Park Sideshow with rides, games and entertainment to keep the kids occupied. 

Remember if you plan on coming into the practice on the day that parking may be a bit more difficult than usual.

 




Clarity First Depot for Contact Lens Packaging Recycling in Queensland

 

Bausch + Lomb Australia has partnered with TerraCycle to facilitate recycling of contact lenses and blister packs for the first time. Any brand of used contact lenses and blister packs can be recycled for free.
“Bausch + Lomb is incredibly conscious of its environmental impact, and wants to offer its customers a better solution for their used products,” said Geraldine Maraboli, Bausch + Lomb Australia. “We are calling on anyone who wears contact lenses to sign up to the programme and help divert their lenses and blister packs from landfill.”
You are able to drop your Contact Lens packaging into Clarity Optometrists Bulimba! Or you can log on to the Terracycle website and send them directly to them. Once signed up, wearers collect their used contact lenses and blister packs in any box, download a prepaid shipping label from the TerraCycle website, attach it to the box, and drop off their package at any Australia Post outlet. The used contact lenses and blister packs collected by TerraCycle will be recycled into sustainable products and materials.
The recycling programme also gives back by making a AU$1 donation to Optometry Giving Sight for every kilogram of accepted waste sent through the programme.

Vision for Life.

 

 

               

 

                                                           

 



ODMA visit Sydney 2017!

 

The Clarity team hit Sydney recently to look at whats hot in frames and equipment recently at the ODMA fair.

Hosted by the Optical Distributors & Manufacturers Association of Australia (ODMA), the ODMA Fair is a trade event held every two years. Since 1979 the ODMA Fair has been a vital resource for the industry.

ODMA2017 took place 7 – 9 July in Sydney at the new and stunning International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour. Not held in Sydney for the past 6 years, there is much anticipation for ODMA2017 to return to the harbour city.

ODMA2017 had an array of new interactive features, major networking events and strong educational content including revamped Masterclasses and Spotlight Seminars.

Recently, ODMA members have been surveyed and have provided constructive feedback to help reshape and improve outcomes of participation in the industry fair. Being back in Sydney, in a stunning new venue with many new initiatives, ODMA2017 promises to deliver the very latest in fashion, innovation and technology and be the best to date.

Watch out for new frames that will be arriving in practice very soon!

We will be doing features on new ranges as they arrive.
