Essilor Offers a New Range of Preventive Lenses to Protect Eyes in This Digital Environment


With dramatic increase in the usage of digital devices such as computers and smartphones, human eyes today are exposed to harmful blue light and are experiencing much higher stress and visual strain as compared to the last decade. Taking into account this shift, Essilor, the world leader in ophthalmic optics, has introduced a new range of highly impactful technology driven lenses offering prevention and protection for your eyes against harmful blue light, strain and fatigue.

Essilor has conducted extensive research to evaluate the impact of increased digital exposure on the eyes. Eyezen and Crizal Prevencia, the new products offered by the leading lens maker, are an outcome of this research and analysis. The new spectacle lenses have been customized to meet the needs of the consumer in the digital age, offer protection from blue light that is harmful to retinal cells and reduce visual strain arising out of multiple device usage.
The new lenses equipped to protect eyes from the ill-effects of digital devices which not only causes increased visual stress but also increases exposure to harmful blue violet light.
Essilor’s consumer study on new digital behavior finds 75% people suffer from visual fatigue; 66% believe digital screens require additional effort for eyes causing increased incidences of headaches, burning & weariness in eyes
According to different researches, average time spent in front of the computers has increased by 65 per cent over the past five years. Add to it the hours spent in front of television sets, the rapid growth of tablet PCs and Smartphones usage, and there is reason to believe that our exposure to harmful blue light is only increasing by the day. At the same time increasing usage of devices such as I Pads and smart phones also creates visual stress.
Apart from increased duration of exposure, usage of multiple digital screens simultaneously is another added lifestyle factor. Sometimes, four different devices may be used by an individual simultaneously. According to a consumer quantitative study conducted in 2014 among 4000 individuals in France, Brazil, China for Essilor, a whopping 82% people stated that they watch TV at the same time as they use their computer; similarly 72% use a tablet or smartphone whilst watching TV.
Doctors say increasing exposure to digital screens is leading to rising number of people reporting tired and weary eyes, headaches, blurred vision, itching and burning. The concern is particularly high in youngsters because they are the ones who are more active users of electronic devices. Computer Vision Syndrome, which was considered an appropriate condition to describe the increasing stress on eyes and posture till recently, looks an obsolete term today given the rapid transition in technology that have added several new facets to visual eyestrain.
The effects of harmful blue violet light have also been highlighted in recent years. Emitted by the sun and also by artificial light sources such as LEDs and computers or smartphones, blue light – the range of the visible light spectrum with wavelengths between 380-500 nm – plays a beneficial role on health, in particular by regulating the internal biological clock. However, a specific band of this light, known as the blue violet light causes damage to retinal cells. Digital devices and lighting devices such as LED lights and CFLs also emit significant amount of blue light. With progressively increasing usage of LED lighting, this exposure is only expected to increase in the coming years.
“Rapid adoption of newer technology in this digital world presents newer challenges with respect to protection requirements. It is also essential for ophthalmic lens technology to evolve to meet the needs. Eyezen represents Essilor’s innovation, offering users the maximum protection and comfort. Eyezen is a lens specifically designed for the digital age,” says Mr Shiv Kumar J, CEO, Essilor India.
“With increasing presence of convergent devices, we are today dealing with a scenario where multiple devices are co-existing. This doesn’t just increase digital exposure of the eye, but adds extra pressure on the eyes as they continuously switch between devices and adapt their focus while sitting, standing and lying down. I might be working on my laptop, and at the same time checking my smartphone while also snatching glimpses of a news bulletin on television. The cumulative stress on the eye today is therefore much more than it was five years back when smartphones and tablets were yet to become a norm, this has led us to introduce lenses such as Eyezen and Crizal Prevencia for use in spectacles,” says Mr. P Ramachandran, Group COO, Essilor India.
New Lenses for the Digital Age
EyeZen
Designed specifically to meet the changing needs of the eyes in a highly connected world, Eyezen lenses represent the latest in Essilor technological innovation. They come with twin functions of relaxing the eyes from digital eyestrain and protecting visual health over the long-term.
Eyezen has been specially designed to offer protection from digital screens and provide more comfort to the eyes as they switch between multiple devices. Eyezen is built with state of the art W.A.V.E. technology which helps provide sharper and clearer vision. Eyezen focus lens technology better supports the eye’s effort in focusing at ultra-near distances that are typical of handheld devices. Secondly. Light Scan, a unique light filtering technology which protects eyes from the harmful blue-violet light emitted by digital screens and modern light sources is another vital feature of this lens. Inspired by the Japanese notion of Zen, Eyezen provides comfort and relaxation to the eyes even when they are excessively exposed to digital creens.
Crizal Prevencia
Prevention, such as protecting the eye from harmful light, is currently the first line of defence against the problems of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts. These conditions currently affect more than 350 million people around the world. Blue light is one of the risk factors in retinal cell degeneration which contributes to the development of cataracts.
Crizal Prevencia is a result of an ambitious four-year research programme conducted in partnership with Paris Vision Institute, one of Europe’s largest eye health integrated research centers, which led to the identification of the portion of the visible light spectrum that is noxious to target retinal cells. Crizal Prevencia is the first preventive spectacle lens that selectively filters out harmful blue violet light that is harmful to retinal cells while letting in other frequencies of the light spectrum, which your body needs to function properly.
Essilor, which is a global leader in research & development, has worked aggressively to determine the emerging challenges to the health of eyes from our changing lifestyles. The new range of lenses from Essilor is aimed at providing the maximum protection and comfort as people live with new age devices and technology.

Quick fix beauty treatments for People always on the go” authored byDr. Chytra V Anand, CEO & Consultant Cosmetic Dermatologist, KosmodermaClinics.

Today in Delhi, tomorrow in Mumbai and the day after in Singapore!
If your life is packed with such uncertainties and a choc a bloc busy schedule, where will you find the time to look after your beauty? In the changing lifestyles of today, when people struggle to get 6 hours of basic sleep, beauty care and grooming might appear difficult to pack in your busy schedules. But, this is when you need to take more care of your skin for stress and lack of rest quicken the process of ageing and skin degeneration.   

Sun exposure, persistent environmental onslaught, depletion of moisture and stress are factors that leave an indelible mark on our skin as we age, causing worries and concerns. Surely, you do not want to look 45 at 35.
As we run around the town morning and night, finishing our chores, our mothers keep reminding us of the elaborate beauty rituals they used to practice to keep themselves youthful and beautiful. You may not have the time to follow the extensive beauty routines and homemade beauty remedies of yesteryears, but what you have on your side is advanced research and technology in the field of beauty care.
Today is the time for quick fix beauty care. Treatments and procedures that yield results quickly are extremely popular among both men and women. In every civilization, in every society, the quest to keep looking young and beautiful is common. Technology in the modern times has given us our own ‘elixirs’ that can ensure the fountains of youth and beauty flow unabated.
So, if you do not have enough time to spend on your face and skin every day, fret not, here are some quick fix beauty procedures that can keep you looking beautiful – all you need is step out of work during lunch time and spend just half an hour at a beauty clinic.
Say goodbye to hollow eyes
When stress and persistent lack of sleep leads to dark circles and hollows under your eyes, you know it’s time to worry. They not just mar your beauty, they make you appear ill and unhealthy. Certainly, you do not want to go to work every day looking sick, weary and aged. A session with dermal fillers like Juvederm can remarkably cover-up, rather fill-up your hollows. Juvederm are hyaluronic acid based new age fillers that can be administered under the skin to give it more volume. They not just fill up the hollow areas, but also fill the fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, making you look healthier and younger. All in a matter of a few minute!
Get rid of Acne scars
One of the most common and torturous beauty scares are acne and the scars they leave. If you are fed up of covering up your acne scars with make up every day, you should meet a dermatologist and try a laser anti-scar procedure. The laser procedure may take 4-6 sessions of a few minutes each, which you can get done in your lunch, breaks. Procedures like Scar Lift and Revlite photofacial are ideal.
Get rid of your frown lines
The frown lines on our forehead develop with time and age as the worry lines that keep coming all life become sort of permanent. They give us a tired, stressed out and aged look. However, the frown lines can be taken care of by Botox wonderfully. When administered into the muscles causing the frown, the drug prevents them from taking this action, thereby getting rid of the frown lines. The procedure takes a few minutes and its effect lasts for several months. If taken from an earlier age, the procedure would also delay the onset of the wrinkles that are caused by muscle action.
Skin exfoliation to rejuvenate the skin
The dullness and lack of sheen of the skin is often because the dead cells are clouding the surface. Some good and quick exfoliating treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion can remove the dead layer and bring back a youthful glow. Diamond Polishing is another technique in which the skin is polished with diamonds fixed on tips that electronically move on the skin. This is useful in removing dead cells, scars, and tanning and overall improves glow and complexion of the skin.
Smile without the crow’s feet
Do you hate the bunch of wrinkles that crowd around your eyes when you smile? Years of laughing and smiling inadvertently leave us with a bunch of fine lines and wrinkles around our eyes, often referred to as the crow’s feet. Botox and dermal fillers like Juvederm can reduce their appearances, cutting down the years on your life’s slate. Skin tightening with Radiofrequency procedures also helps by increasing skin collagen and elastin.

Finally India gets beauty products without chemicals…!! Vert -Fresh & Handmade

Finding beauty and skin care products for people with sensitive skin is a never ending task, but I think, finally I have got the solution to end my search.
Vert brings completely chemical free, beauty and skin products which are safe, fresh and handmade.
I happened to visit their store at DLF Palace, Saket and also got an opportunity to meet the brains behind this concept, Ms. Anupama.
It was during her travel to Europe, that she came across products that were totally natural and chemical free, and this gave her the idea to bring this concept to India as well.
Since then months of research and handwork went in to develop beauty and skin care products that give us the freedom from chemical abuse and Vert was born.







They are known for their high quality ethical products which are made from natural ingredients in innovative ways to produce traditional concepts with contemporary twists. Their natural bath & body care products are carefully made by hand, using time honoured methods. They are individually hand cut, hand poured & hand wrapped, ensuring that the products are of high quality through all stages of the manufacturing process. It is their belief that what is best for our skin should also be best for our mother Earth.
Manufactured in smoke free environment the products are 100% vegetarian which contains no animal fat. They are not tested on animals. 
Their products are made by using only the finest oils, herbs & botanicals which are sourced from across the world, and have long lasting fragrance.They endeavour to keep their packaging simple, minimal and recyclable to avoid it clogging up dustbins and the environment. All of their packaging material which includes bottles, jars and lids can be easily recycled after you have finished using the products.  No paraben is used as preservative in any of the products.
I was really impressed with the detailing with which I was explained about the products. I am listing down a couple of them here for all of us to understand what actually goes into making them.


Lemon Grass Ginger Body Wash

In this soap free blend, rejuvenating lemongrass essential oil is paired with fresh, stimulating ginger absolute to invigorate the senses. Further enriched with soothing aloe vera gel, fresh lemon juice & sea salt to gently cleanse, they have also added shea butter to nourish and moisturise the skin.

Cafe Walnut Foot Scrub

Pamper your feet with 100% natural foot scrub. This super luxurious blend of coffee & walnut powder not only exfoliates the dead skin but also contains antioxidants which repairs damage due to environmental pollutants and free radicals. A splash of fresh lemon juice is added to deodorise, ligten, tighten and brighten your feet. Be ready to flaunt your feet with this one. I can really vouch for the effectiveness of this product, as I tested it at their store, though on my hands and not feet, but just two minutes of scrubbing, left me with soft and supple skin.





I also happened to test a solid perfume, called Love Potion and I fell in love with its fragrance right there and then, and even after 6-7 hours, it smelled as fresh as it did when I applied it.

I was really very impressed with the entire range of products, which includes, face creams, face cleansers, face scrubs, foot scrubs, foot creams, shampoos, soaps, lip scrubs, perfumes and even a choice of gift hampers to pamper your loved ones.













I got lucky that a sweet little hamper came my way, and I will surely write about them once I experience them for a little while, but two days of use, and there is this one product that I really wanna praise, its the Ginger, Clove & Lemon Shampoo for Daily Wash. I have a very oily scalp and need to wash my hair daily, but one wash with this shampoo and it controlled my oil beautifully, its first time in years that I gave a days miss to my shampoo, and washed it after a day. This alternate day of hair washing is something I haven’t experienced with any product. I am very sure their other products will also deliver the promise of quality.

Look forward to using them and experiencing freedom from chemical abuse.
