FODO announces new structure and first-ever MD.

February 2019

In response to growing membership across its eye and hearing care businesses FODO has announced a new company structure and the appointment of Harjit Sandhu as its first-ever Managing Director.

Harjit SandhuHarjit, (pic right) who was previously Director of Policy and Strategy at the National Community Hearing Association (NCHA), will now run the four FODO businesses: FODO, FODO Ireland, the NCHA and ophthalmology partnerships.

Harjit Sandhu said: “I am delighted to take on this key role with such a wide remit, especially at this important and challenging time for the eye and hearing health sectors. We will continue to support sector growth and ensure that our members remain at the forefront of meeting the nation’s eye and hearing health needs by carving out new opportunities and tackling emerging risks head on. FODO, the NCHA and FODO Ireland are all sector leaders and we are now ready to move to the next level.”

David Hewlett,(pic left) current FODO CEO, will take up the new post of Director for Leadership, Transformation and Strategic Partnerships. Ann Blackmore the current Director of Policy and Strategy at FODO is changing career direction and leaving the FODO Group to work as a consultant.

Commenting FODO UK Chair Lynda Oliver said: “We are extraordinarily lucky to have Harjit re-joining the Optical Sector in this important leadership role at a vital time for eye care in the UK and Ireland. There are few people with his combination of analytical, clinical and health economics skills, and he even has the advantage of having started out as an optometrist. ”

David Hewlett said: “Harjit’s appointment is great news for the FODO businesses and for the wider eye health and hearing sectors. From now on Harjit will run the FODO Group businesses and I will be moving from my current role as Chief Executive to focus on aspects of our work programme which it has not been possible to progress over the past few years as the FODO Group has expanded.


"I would also like to pay tribute to Ann who has contributed so much over the past five years. Ann’s input on a wide range of issues demonstrates the value FODO membership brings to its members and the wider sector. We wish Ann well with her consultancy. I am certain she will be in great demand.”

Commenting on the plans, Peter Ormerod, Chair of NCHA and Garvan Mulligan, Chair of FODO Ireland both said their respective Boards unanimously backed the new Group structure.

Peter Ormerod said: “Harjit and David, both experts in health policy and strategy, have been crucial in providing support to and developing the hearing care sector. The new structure will make the NCHA even more agile at a time when more than ever the sector needs the NCHA’s support”.

Garvin Mulligan added: “The optical sector in Ireland has gone through major changes in recent years and FODO has been instrumental in making sure government and regulators got those changes right. We are confident that this new structure will continue to serve us well”.

BLACKFIN – Natural Awareness Campaign

February 2019

Leven by Blackfin The pure white sand merges with the clear blue sky in a true representation of elegance. The silk cloths, lifted by the wind, come to life, creating an atmosphere heavy with suspense and vitality. An almost imperceptible lightness pervades the scene, transmitted by those who have been on an inevitable inner journey and who now, in all naturalness, have reached a state of profound awareness: of who they are, who they were and where they are going.

The die is cast, Year Three of Phase Three has been accomplished: the product, the genuine story and a brand image which has reached a stylistic and conceptual maturity in the design of its eyewear, the new exhibition space and the latest 2019 communications campaign.

Natural Awareness is not a means to an end, a message coined for the latest seasonal campaign, but the next step in Blackfin’s growth. It is a journey of discovery and rediscovery of our primitive awareness.

Natural Awareness is the realisation that the only thing we need to face the future with positivity is to be ourselves.

The sequence of shots showcases the new collection of spectacle frames and sunglasses, marrying sophisticated colours with the exquisite but almost imperceptible purity of the Black Edition collection.

In the campaign images, captured by the lens of photographer Giovanni De Sandre, the beauty and elegance of the Blackfin products merge with the concept of minimal yet utter technical precision and titanium, the material par excellence, embodies their hi-tech and glamorous appeal.

The backdrop, with its gentle, yet fragile and powerful nature, gives us an awareness that helps us realise who we really are. Naturally.

SPECTRALIS High Magnification Module Receives CE Marking

February 2019

HE Fig 1 Heidelberg Engineering announces the CE marking of the SPECTRALIS® High Magnification Module. With the addition of a highly innovative lens and software upgrade, this new module enables visualization of the ocular fundus at a microscopic level.

The non-invasive SPECTRALIS High Magnification Module makes optimal use of the confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (cSLO) technology of SPECTRALIS to resolve retinal microstructures by diminishing intraocular stray light coming from outside the focal plane. It combines the selectivity of laser light with confocal scanning to provide infrared fundus images with a level of detail and clarity not available from fundus photography.

The module can be used effectively even in patients with cataracts because of the minimized effects of light scatter.

Heidelberg Engineering expects that the ability to see at a microscopic level will enable eye care professionals to refine surgical and treatment regimens. It may provide unique insights into the pathogenesis and progression of certain retinal diseases.

Some ocular microstructures may be overlooked in diagnostic images when reviewing scans with larger fields of view.

Figure 1: The CE-marked SPECTRALIS® High Magnification Module enables non-invasive, high-resolution cSLO imaging and visualization of previously imperceptible retinal microstructures.

The SPECTRALIS multimodal imaging platform allows the examiner to identify a region of interest within the standard field of view, and to magnify this region using the High Magnification Module.

The magnification of these regions can be used to investigate ocular structures at a microscopic level, while still providing a field of view large enough to navigate the fundus with relative ease.

HE Fig 2Dr. Giovanni Staurenghi, Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Milan, Italy, is one of the first clinicians to have tried the High Magnification Module:
“It’s promising to be able to obtain infrared fundus images with such a degree of magnification with our regular SPECTRALIS device. It seems like we are seeing down to the photoreceptor level. We have just started using the High Magnification Module as part of our multimodal imaging approach and we are looking forward to exploring its full clinical value.”

The SPECTRALIS High Magnification Module has also received FDA clearance in 2018 and is commercially available in Europe and the United States both for new and existing SPECTRALIS devices that are equipped with the OCT2 Module.

Migraine sufferers praise vista mesh lenses.

February 2019

Dhanesh SakariaExtensive neurology investigations, food diaries and elimination diets have not helped the frequency and severity of migraine attacks for Dhanesh Sakaria, who has suffered from the condition for 30 years, since she was just 16.

But intervention by her optician, with the dispensing of the innovative Vista Mesh spectacle lens, has made a significant difference, reducing the number and severity of attacks :

“I had a prescription for six Zolmitriptan migraine tablets a month, which was frequently not adequate as I had so many attacks. Talking to my opticians about the problem, they recommended that I try Vista Mesh lenses as there has been a lot of anecdotal reports about the lenses helping other migraine sufferers,” said Dhanesh, who is a patient of Roger Pope in the Harley Street area of London.

“I had the lenses made up to my prescription, in a varifocal option, and I wear them all the time – for driving, for work and everything else, so that I don’t need to take them off during the day. They have made a huge difference, cutting the attacks by at least half, and there has been a reduced severity to the migraines that I do experience. I had been incredibly sensitive to light, often causing nausea and vomiting, but the attacks that I have experienced in the past few months have not been as debilitating. I have tried so many different things over the years – avoiding foods, giving up red wine, and so on, but none has worked. Four months into wearing the specs the results are very positive,” added Dhanesh, who lives in Uxbridge.

Echoing this success, Ian Parkhurst of Parkhurst Opticians in Doncaster, has been prescribing Vista Mesh lenses to patients for some time, “I couldn’t work properly without this lens, as it relieves the majority of symptoms for people with migraine and visual stress. We have many patients using the lens who say it has turned their lives around. It doesn’t work for everyone, but we have a very high success rate.”

Teresa Dyer, from Somerset, also reports a reduction in attacks, “Vista Mesh lenses have removed the glare and sharp reflections I suffered when driving and they have really helped my migraines.”

The barely visible fine filter of the lens acts almost like a pinhole effect, reducing glare and aligning scattered light, sharpening contrast and thereby reducing eye strain, prescribers believe. Vista Lenses are available from The Norville Group.

Developing a strategic approach to changing the public’s responses to eye health.

February 2019

ECOO meeting organised by FODOFODO’s David Hewlett and Ann Blackmore were active participants (and joint organisers) of a strategy workshop in Brussels on 31 January organised by ECOO, the ECV and MedTech Europe.

David opened the diagnostic session in his role as ECV chair with a challenging presentation on the mountain the sector has to climb in order change the public’s attitudes to vision and eye health.

He also highlighted key opportunities for more coherent messaging abound Vision 2020 next year, the World Health Organisation global report on vision and eye health (due sometime this year) and the upcoming EU elections on the theme of empowering citizens to look after their own health and World Sight Day.

David said: “As FODO has always advocated, we are much stronger as a sector when we speak and act together especially on eye health messages and the importance of regular sight tests. These things go in cycles and following a period of fragmentation, the concept of working together is once again gaining traction. An exciting work programme is developing to capitalise on this and FODO is delighted to be at the forefront of championing our core values of ophthalmic public health and eye care for all in this way.”

Optoversity challenge set to raise funds for homeless vision care

February 2019

Optroversity City TeamOptoversity is an exciting challenge to test the knowledge and diagnostic skills of the UK’s young optometrists.

Open to third year optometry students, the event is taking place on Saturday 23 March at Anglia Ruskin University. Student sponsorship of the event – organised by Outoftheboxoptics - is set to raise funds for Vision Care for Homeless People.

North London optometrist Karmelo Modina launched the event two years ago and this year teams are entering from Anglia Ruskin, City and Bradford universities. Others are being encouraged to apply before the end of February.

“I thought it would be a great way to bring together optometry students and to help prepare them for working life in the best way possible. It is always good fun, and alongside this the students will be raising funds for Vision Care for Homeless People,” said Karmelo, who supervises students one day a week at Anglia Ruskin.

“The format includes practical OSCE exams, an ocular disease picture quiz, multiple choice questions and an optometry version of articulate. Prizes will be provided by some of the sponsors which include Cooper Vision, Essilor, Modo Eyewear and Thea Pharmaceuticals.

The College of Optometrists’ award-winning patient website gets a makeover

January 2019

The College of Optometrists has refreshed its eye care website, which provides information and advice to the general public and enables a better understanding of the role of optometrists in maintaining the nation’s eye health.

The new Look After Your Eyes now features similar aspects to the Find my Optician app on PHN's Public Site MyLocalOptician although the College site is only searchable by College Members and Fellows and where they practise as opposed to Find My Optician where all registered practices, dispensing and optometric are searchable within any location, by speciality and by special products as well as domiciliary provision.

The new site has:
• an improved ‘find a local optometrist’ search function, helping patients locate College Members and Fellows in their area. Users will now be able to find practitioners who offer additional languages, home visits and dementia-friendly services
• a refreshed, modern look and feel, with clearer navigation for users
• up-to-date, evidence-based content aimed at giving users advice and information to which optometrists can confidently direct their patients
• new practical content on conditions including styes and conjunctivitis.

Daniel Hardiman-McCartney FCOptom, Clinical Adviser to The College of Optometrists, says: “The Look After Your Eyes website update makes evidenced-based eye health information easier for the public to access and understand. The up-to-date content will mean that College members can continue to feel confident in referring patients to it for further advice and information. The improved member search function also allows patients to easily locate practising members in their area, and works alongside the College’s highly successful patient leaflet series in raising public awareness of the profession, and membership of the UK’s optometric professional body.”

Fellows and members should check that their details are correct on the College Site and it is a timely reminder for all registered practices to check their details on the Find My Optician app.

PHN's Public site receives 1000 public visits each day on average, many using the Find My Optician App.

January 2019

My Local Optician Find My Optician app

On the public website now established by PHN for over 10 years the Find My Optician where all registered practices, for both dispensing and optometric business addresses are included in the largest practice based database, their contact details being searchable within any location, post code, town or region and by speciality and special products stocked as well as a separate listing for domiciliary provision.

These details are researched by around 1000 members of the public each day.

This is an invaluable resource for the public searching for practice names and addresses in their area.

The profession has been consistent in updating their information, especially the independent sector and it is also widely used by the business to business sector of the optical maufacturers for planning campaigns in areas.

Take the opportunity to make sure your practice appears in searches made by the public looking for an optician in your area now. on the app. Here are simple instructions to add or correct your practice information here.

The ability to market your specialities and products from our national listing is free to all registered optical practices. PHN receives a number of phone calls each week from patients looking for home visits and our service would be much improved by those registered to providing this service letting our team know. You can do this once establishing your entry is correct and following the instructions for Stage 2.

The College of Optometrists issue eye health tips for winter as the cold bites

January 2019

As we are about to enter a cold snap, The College of Optometrists is urging the public to take steps to protect their vision and eye health.

The College has developed a winter eye health poster to highlight the different ways winter can affect vision and exacerbate eye conditions. The infographic, which is available online, also advises readers on how to protect their eyes during the winter months, including tips on how to deal with dry eye exacerbated by cold weather and central heating, and what sunglasses you should be wearing.

Dr Susan Blakeney FCOptom, Clinical Adviser for The College of Optometrists, said: “There are several things you may notice more in winter than in summer. One of these is an increased need to wear your glasses. This is because when there is less light available, your pupil expands which reduces the eye's depth of focus, and means that you notice blurriness more. For example, you may find that even if you don’t normally need to wear your glasses for driving, wearing them when driving at night makes more of a difference than wearing them during the day.

“If you suffer from dry eye you may find that your central heating makes your eyes feel worse. To ease this, I would advise that you lower your room temperature or use a humidifier. If you have any questions, ask your optometrist for more information.”

The College of Optometrists has issued the following advice to help those who encounter vision problems during the winter:

• The glare of a low-lying sun on icy or wet roads can cause difficulty for drivers, even those with good vision, so it’s really important to make sure your windscreen is clean, both inside and out. Sunglasses can also help reduce glare, and if you wear glasses to drive, you can get these made to your prescription, or wear clip on sunglasses.

• If you suffer from dry eye, it may be exacerbated by your central heating. To minimise the discomfort you should try to lower your room temperature or use a humidifier.

• Lower levels of light in winter can make reading and close tasks more difficult, especially for older people and those with existing vision problems. Try using extra light, and position it close to you, such as by using a standard or angle-poise lamp.

• As conditions get colder and the wind starts to pick up, many people complain that their eyes water more than normal. You can help reduce this by wearing spectacles to protect against the wind, even if you don’t usually wear them.

Further information and advice to help look after your eyes can be found on the College’s Look After Your Eyes website:

AREA98 and Harim Academy Euromediterranea announce the second edition of the COCO SONG AWARD

January 2019

Coco Award edition 2
The Coco Song Award
is having its second edition. Area98 recently announced, in collaboration with the Harim Accademia Euromediterranea, the second edition of the competition dedicated to the students of the Academy to offer young talented people the opportunity to give their own interpretation of the Coco Song collection.

Building on the success of the 2017 edition and the excellent feedback from all those who, even partially, contributed to the success of the competition, Area98 decided to follow up on the initiative and launch the challenge again to the students of Fashion Design, Jewelery Design and Interior & Product Design of the Harim Accademia Euromediterranea. The young people will be invited to present their innovative proposals for the line of Coco Song sunglasses with the utmost freedom of expression: though starting from the characteristics that have become the brand's strong points, they will be able to reinterpret them or combine them with new creative elements.

The projects will be evaluated for their ability to combine creative and innovative value with inspiration from the distinctive elements of the collection - the appeal to the East, the key role of color, the use of silk and natural inserts in the frames – besides being evaluated on the true feasibility of the proposal.

The Jury – made up of members of the Board and of the Product Development Office of Area98, teachers at the Harim Accademia Euromediterranea, opticians of the main markets in which Area98 works and representatives of the press from the eyewear sector - will select five finalists, to be announced by February 25th 2019 on the occasion of MIDO.

Of the five projects selected, the Area98 Product Office will produce the prototypes in one or more color variants; the prototypes will be presented to the public at the end of the academic year at the runway organized by the Harim Accademia Euromediterranea and in Milan for the 2019 Fashion Graduate Italy. The winner of the Coco Song Award will be nominated by Silmo on September 30th 2019. He/She will receive a prize of €1,000.00 and will be invited to the premises of Area98 in Pavia di Udine, where he/she can visit the company, get to know its departments, interact with the Artistic Director and get in touch with the historical, artistic and cultural heritage of the Friuli Venezia-Giulia region.

Elisio Tessaro, Coco Song’s Artistic Director, commented: "We are thrilled to undertake this project again, which in 2017 offered a unique opportunity for both us and for the students. Area98 has always been synonymous with creativity and experimentation, and the young talents of Harim Accademia Euromediterranea represent an inexhaustible and extraordinary source of fresh and original ideas. We look forward to receiving new proposals and opening our brand to innovative levels of interpretation."
