We recently had great event in our Blanchardstown practice. Victoria Graham,
a trained colour-me-beautiful style consultant came to the practice, along with a
representative from Silhouette eyewear. They brought along the complete range of
Silhouette rimless frames in all sizes, shapes and colours available, giving maximum
choice to the patients booked in that day.
Victoria took plenty of time with each individual patient, taking personality,
complexion, eye colour and face shape into consideration. She helped them to
choose the most flattering frame, one which complimented their colouring perfectly
and mirrored their personality.
Victoria realises the value of making a good impression:
‘Did you know that first impressions only take 15 seconds to make?
Interestingly, how we look has much greater impact than what we say; thus
choosing what we wear, including our glasses is very significant. How we
choose to dress sends out a distinct message to the world.
During a colour class we explore what colours are doing for you. We discover
the colours that give you a radiant glow rather than those that wash you out.
You have a unique skin tone and eye colour, which means some colours
make you look great, and some have completely the opposite effect.’
Everyone was delighted with the personal service, and the wonderful help Victoria
gave them to choose the most complimentary frames.
We will be having another Silhouette day in the future. Please phone us in

Some cheaper anti-glare coatings can make glasses very difficult to keep clean. These budget coatings get smudged very easily, should anything touch them. Most glasses wearers know how irritating it can be, constantly cleaning grubby lenses.
We recommend a Crizal Forte anti-glare lens coat. This scotchgard coating has a number of great benefits:
It is very tough, and doesn’t scratch easily.
It’s smudge resistant, and will stay cleaner than other lenses.
It is also easier to clean, when it does get dirty .
It lets through 99% of light, (up to 30% more light than cheaper alternatives), and minimises reflections and glare.
It’s a little more expensive than standard anti glare coatings, but well worth it when you consider the extra benefits.
Well you don’t!. You might think it is obvious, but deteriorating eyesight tends to creep up on you. Sight loss tends to be gradual and it only becomes apparent when you compare with someone else’s superior ability to see a small object at a distance or you find you are holding small print further away or you seek better light to read small print. These are all signs of deteriorating eyesight.
The only real way of determining if you need glasses is to call in for a sight examination. There are many other diseases which can be detected in a sight examination and often early detection can prevent further deterioration of certain diseases.
An eye examination re recommended at least ever two years. Your enhanced eye examination at our practices is the “Rolls Royce” of eye examinations. All eye examinations are not the same. Our enhanced eye examination takes approximately 30 minutes, where as a standard eye examination can generally be performed in about 15 minutes. Your sight is precious and is not one to scrimp on.
The following video from Australia shows the kind of work undertaken in a large optical glazing laboratory. We only use third party laboratories as each has specialist expertise. This means that we are not limited to any one frame design and we can deliver highest quality glazing results which matches your prescription with your frame. In other words, lenses you can’t get in an hour!
