 Whats new in contact lenses?  
 New contact lens materials seem to be launched monthly.  Various brands using silicone hydrogel polymers released in 2005 became available in  expanded parameters  in 2006, and new contact lens materials and parameters continue to be released in 2007.    These include Johnson & Johnson Vistakon  Acuvue® Advance  for astigmatism,   Acuvue® Oasys, as well as re-release of what we consider to be the best extended wear contact lens, Bausch & Lomb`s PureVision.  PureVision Toric contact lenses  for astigmatism were also officially  launched in the United States in 2006.   It is the first contact lens for astigmatism approved for continous wear. In the near future Ciba is in clinical trials with a toric version of its O2Optix, which will be the second continuous wear contact lens for astigmatism. Early in 2007 Bausch and Lomb started making the PureVision contact lens in a new softer polymer. Even the company has a hard time identifying which PureVision contact lenses are of the original material and which are of the new material, but apparently the contact lenses that DO NOT have "B&L" engraving and have expiration date after 01/01/2009 are of the new material.   All of the current contact lenses have generous manufacturers` rebates available on annual quantity orders.  
 In addition to the silicone hydrogels there are new 1-day (single use) disposaable contact lenses that have been released by CIBA and Vistakon with special wetting agents to alleviate dry eye complaints of soft contact lens wearers. Ciba`s new Focus Dailies All Day Comfort Contact Lenses with AquaRelease are made with a wetting agent that releases moisture throughout the day. Johnson and Johnson Vistakon 1-Day Acuvue Moist with Lacreon , which became available January, 2007, embeds a wetting agent within the lens matrix.  
 We also carry Altair Classic eyewear, Tommy Bahama, Joseph Abboud,  United Colors of Benetton, Revlon,the new Sigrid Olsen, their own Microtech screwless metals, the Sunlites collection, which features rimless frames with magnetic clip-ons,  and others.
