All Optical Alliance members are independent Optometrists which allows them to make decisions based on the patients eye conditions and needs, free from influence of stakeholders as in some corporations. We have the patient’s best welfare at heart, without restrictions provide services, ensuring that the patients receive full benefits from their visit.
Most Optical Alliance members stock the latest frame brands, whether you want a look that's fun, stylish, lively, confident, latest, retro or classic, you'll be sure to find something that suits your lifestyle and personality.
Spectacles are not only seen as an optical correction but are also a way of showing style, why not have numerous options to choose from each day. Choose the option of wearing contact lenses, whether you prefer green, blue, brown or just your own colour eyes, ask your Optical Alliance Optometrist about the options available in contact lenses.
Contact your local Optical Alliance Optometrist to find out which brands of frames and contact lenses they stock.
Of all the Guvon properties, Glenburn Lodge lends itself most to family fun, group excursions and outdoor activities due to the two rivers on the property, a beautiful mountain and stretches of grass lands all within a private game reserve.
World Sight Day is the most important advocacy and communications event on the eye health calendar. It is a great time to engage with the world at large – a patient’s family, those who seldom get an eye exam, diabetics. This year, let us ensure that we pay attention to eye care issues that impact lives everywhere, both developed and developing economies. What’s the first thing you can do? Plan for an eye examination. Look around in your family, especially for those who are vulnerable: young, school-going children, the elderly, those with diabetes.
World Sight Day 2017 will be on 12 October 2017. This year’s call to action:
Make Vision Count
Remember, 4 out of 5—80%–of the world’s blind are avoidably so. What can be done to arrest this unconscionable fact? First, arm yourself with your country’s prevalence data and Eye Health system information–the number of trained eye health personnel, your country’s plans to tackle blindness. As they say, knowledge is power. On World Sight Day, IAPB will be launching the latest data (2015) on the prevalence of avoidable blindness and visual impairment along with the main causes. We will also have projections up to the year 2020.
This World Sight Day, let’s get the numbers out, so we know where we stand.
