Tanveer to run the Rome Marathon 2017 for the UN Refugee Agency

Tanveer will join thousands of runners in the Italian capital this April  to run  26.2 miles in order to raise vital funds for the United Nations  Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

image-6934-1Tanveer is the senior optometrist at The Vision Clinic in Harrow. This will be her third marathon having run the London Marathon in 2015 and the Paris Marathon last year. She has raised nearly £5000  for the charity Fight for Sight, the UK’s leading charity that funds pioneering eye research to prevent sight loss and treat eye disease.

This year Tanveer has  chosen to support another cause close to her heart. “I really wanted to support the United Nations Refugee Agency  because it works to protect and assist refugees everywhere. There are over 21.3 million refugees in the world today and more than half of them are under 18 years of age. None of us can forget that haunting image of a drowned child being recovered from the sea. When I saw that footage, I was determined to raise funds for this charity which literally saves lives…”

To support Tanveer and the UNCHR , The Vision Clinic will donate £1 from every eye examination between January and March to this great charity.

Most recently, the UNHCR  in Lebanon has provided help to 870,000 people in need. This includes providing cash assistance to allow vulnerable families to buy fuel and other winter essentials. They also distribute blankets, stoves and materials to enable people to weatherproof their fragile shelters.

Ana Hickmann launches at The Vision Clinic

Are you looking for frames that exude class, glamour and personality – just like you in a way? Then look no further than our new Ana Hickmann range of eyewear. We were dazzled by them when we recently attended Silmo , the premier spectacle catwalk in Paris last month.

I can hear you ask – who is Ana Hickmann? Well, she is the Brazilian version of Victoria Beckham but being Brazilian obviously more beautiful. A model of international fame, she launched her fashion line of signature clothing, cosmetics and accessories such as shoes, handbags and sunglasses a few years ago.

 

The Autumn / Winter collection is called “Challenger” which is inspired by Polo – the frames exude both presence as well as finesse. Semi – precious materials such as mother- of -pearl and Swarovski crystals add a touch of elegance.

Polarising lenses

Sunglasses are great fashion accessories but they are also important when it comes to maintaining good eye health.

Not all sunglass lenses are the same. Polarising lenses eliminate the glare caused by reflections, so they’re ideal for driving. Colours appear clearer, with enhanced contrast compared to conventional sun wear and they also give 100% protection UV.

 

Visit us at The Vision Clinic  to browse our impressive ranges of sunglasses. Alternatively, book an appointment by calling 0208 907 5270 or emailing us on info@t-v-c.com.

Sun’s out!!

Finally SUMMER is here! We all love being out in the sun and we know that sunlight exposure is great for absorbing Vitamin D (needed for good eye health). However, too much light can damage your vision. UV rays are extremely harmful to your eyes in large amounts, and can cause a variety of short and long term problems.

In the long term, UV rays can significantly increase the risk of developing cataracts, macular degeneration or retinal damage. To reduce your chances of suffering UV related eye damage, make sure you always wear sunglasses when outdoors for long periods of time. Your sunglasses should have proper UVA and UVB filters, and ideally screen out 75-90% of natural light.

For extra clarity, opt for polarised sunglasses which are also brilliant for reflected glare and for that annoying morning sun which can be dangerous when driving.

Light – sensitive or photochromic lenses are also another good option for UV protection. These lenses darken according to the amount of light around and are particularly useful if you find yourself squinting even on overcast days.

Now is the perfect time to visit the Vision Clinic. We have the latest models from Rayban including the new Clubround model – it’s bold and with an unmistakable profile. We also have the iconic Clubmaster, the timeless Aviator, and the classic Wayfarer models in store too. Nearly all of these can be made up in your prescription so you can look the part as well as see!

The New Rayban Clubround

 

Attention all parents

Don’t forget to invest in a good pair of sunglasses for your child too – their eyes are just as – if not more – vulnerable to the harmful effects of solar radiation. It is estimated that 80% of lifetime UV damage occurs in the first 20 years of life. This is because children spend more time outdoors and have larger pupils allowing more light to the back of their eyes.

Sunglasses for sports

Protecting your eyes whilst cycling, running or playing golf is important. We have Adidas sunglasses to suit all you MAMILs out there! So why not pop in to  The Vision Clinic to try on our sunglasses? For more information about our sunglass promotion  call 0208 907 5270 or email us on info@t-v-c.com.

March 2016 man

Your eyewear can complement your features as well as your lifestyle

March 2016 man

The style and design of your glasses, much like the style of your clothes, can say a lot about you and your personality. And with the range of designs available today, it’s possible to choose a style you like as well as one that suits your lifestyle.

If you’re a confident, outgoing person who likes to wear bright colours, you might choose a bold pair of frames from our Prodesign range to make a statement.

With all the sizes, shapes, colours and patterns of frames available today it can be hard knowing where to start. For that reason, your dispensing optician will be more than happy to help you choose the eyewear that looks great on you.

It is becoming increasingly common for people to have more than one pair of glasses in different styles – perhaps one for work and one for home. This allows greater flexibility for you to choose the design that works best for you in certain situations. Alternatively if you’re a little more reserved, work in a professional environment or want something simple, why not choose a model from our wonderfully chic Elle range…

March 2016 womanThere are a number of factors that will affect the sort of frames that look good on you. Your hair and skin colour are important, as are the colours of the clothes you often wear. If your wardrobe contains a lot of dark colours, orange or green frames might look a little out of place? On the other hand,  if you want to  make a statement look at the Mo Eyewear range from Spain…

If you’re new to wearing glasses, it is often a good idea to try on a few different pairs before you make any decisions. Considering a variety of looks can help you work out what naturally looks good on you, as well as allowing you to try something you might not have initially chosen.

You no longer have to choose between great looking eyewear and practicality; you can have both.

Visit us at The Vision Clinic any time to browse our impressive ranges of frames. Alternatively, book an appointment by calling 0208 907 5270 or emailing us on info@t-v-c.com.
