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.
"Dedicated to the world of eyewear design"
The latest addition to our boutique range is a refreshing designer range of ophthalmic frames made from the finest materials; titanium, premium acetate and genuine buffalo horn.
The titanium range is made in Japan while the acetates are manufactured in Germany with all frames hand finished - a ceramic coating application to the titanium models with the acetates being hand polished.
Sven Gotti (Zuric based founder, owner and designer):
"Since our company began, our philosophy has remained consistent. We create eyewear that is simple and elegant and made of the highest quality materials. Our eyewear is reduced to the essential, enhanced with harmonious shapes and comes alive with a consistent signature. These eye glasses are intended more as jewellery than as an accessory. They are valuable and enduring objects that make the wearer look and feel great".
Gotti eyewear - innovative yet representing an impressive level of minimalism.
