L.A Eyeworks is immediately recognized for their bold shapes, expressive use of color and imaginative use of materials.
"We design eyewear to celebrate the diversity of faces and the uniqueness of individuals. The glasses we make are sparks of our imagination. You complete these thoughts and bring the dreams of L.A Eyeworks into being."-- Barbara McReynolds & Gai Gherardi (Owners, and designers)
Believing it was time to open up a new kind of conversation about glasses, McReynolds and Gherardi launched L.A Eyeworks with a mission to encourage people to stop looking and to start seeing.
Although L.A Eyeworks have graced the faces of celebrities, performers, artists, and athletes, the deeper intention is for you to find a frame that conforms to no fashion sensibility but your own.

While you can buy flaxseed oil, or fish oil tablets in the health store or local pharmacy.. you can never be quite sure what you are actually getting. For example, on the shelf you might find "lignan-rich flaxseed oil" through research they have discovered that lignan-rich flaxseed oil is rich in phytoestrogens, and we know that estrogen's actually make dry eye worse.
TheraTears Nutrition contains organically grown, cold-pressed flaxseed oil without the lignan portion - making it a recommended product to help with dry eye. More importantly, TheraTears Nutrition is not just flaxseed oil. It is EPA and DHA enriched flaxseed oil. EPA and DHA are the pharmaceutically active omega 3s that go directly to work to suppress inflammatory blepharitis, augment the oil layer and stimulate tear production. By enriching flaxseed oil with these omega 3s we get an effect that if more consistent and effective across a broad range of dry eye patients.
In addition, TheraTears Nutrition enrich each softgel tablet with Vitamin E to maintain the integrity of these high quality oils. This is also important because with long-term supplementation with omega 3s there is a gradual depletion of serum vitamin E. TheraTears Nutrition prevents this by supplementing with vitamin E.
With fish oil you have to be very concerned about heavy metal levels in the oil. There are 3 ways to purify fish oil- the cheap way, a slightly more expensive way, and the most expensive way is called "molecular distillation". TheraTears Nutrition use high quality fish oil which is molecularly distilled to get rid of any heavy metals.
The second issue with fish oil is oxidation. Fish oil can turn rancid during processing. TheraTears use pharmaceutical grade fish oil processed under nitrogen. You can tell it's fresh by smelling the soft gels - there's virtually no fish odour.
This will vary from patient to patient, but we advise patients to expect to see the effects in 4 to 8 weeks.

September is "Save your sight" month, an eye health awareness campaign led by the New Zealand Association of Optometrists with the aim of promoting the value of early detection and prevention of eye problems.
Eyecare is important for health and wellbeing - even if a person is not experiencing any symptoms.
Some eye diseases can develop with no early warning signs making early detection a vital step in avoiding or limiting permanent damage to the eyes.
We know that people with poor vision have higher rates of depression, have more falls and fractures, have increased need for community and /or family support, and have earlier need for institutionalised care than people who can see well.
So, be proactive, recognise the significance of eye care ( the true value of eye sight) and book in today for a comprehensive eye examination.
