SPORTS SAFETY FIRST
Liberty Sport has teamed up with Prevent Blindness once again in order to provide ECPs with free information and materials through the “September is Sports Eye Injury Prevention Awareness Month” campaign. This year, the Sports Eye Injury Prevention Kit has been expanded to include a Sports-Related Eye Injuries by Age stat sheet and the ABO Course: Protecting Your Patients Who Are Athletes. More than 6,500 eye injuries occur in water and pool activities, up over 1,000 from last year according to new data estimates from Prevent Blindness. 800.444.5010, libertysport.com.
DESIGN YOUR OWN ASPIRE EYEWEAR
Taking its Aspire collection to the next level to create customizable eyewear, ClearVision Optical has partnered with Dassault Systems, a leading technology firm that specializes in 3D design platforms. In addition to ordering the standard collection, ECPs will also be able to design their own pair of rimless frames through an easy-to-use web application on cvoptical.com. There will be a live demo of this technology at Vision Expo West where attendees can receive free customized frames.
ClearVision is also launching a three-piece rimless collection to mix and match 12 standard and six limited-edition colors with three nosepiece shapes and three temple/tip options (for more than one million choices) as well as a semi-rimless collection. 800.645.3733, cvoptical.com.

Each card features information on the three everyday options: Transitions Signature VII, Transitions XTRActive and Transitions Vantage. The reference cards can be ordered for free by visiting the Patient Education Resource section under the My Practice tab at MyMultiCulturaltoolkit.com or TransitionsPRO.com
