An ECO twist on recycled eyewear

Here at Paul McCarthy Optometrist we like to do our bit for sustainability and on a recent trip to New York, we discovered ECO¬† – an amazing eyewear range made from 95% recycled materials – plastics, metals & packaging. The ECO Biobased range goes a step further – these incredibly unique frames are made of 63% castor seed oil. If you’re looking to reduce fossil-fuel plastics from your purchasing habits, these are for you. Super bright and classic colours, ultra-light to wear and absolutely no compromise on style and quality.¬† But wait, there’s more……………………for every ECO frame purchased, a tree is planted by NGO Trees For The Future – so far having reached 1 million trees in Cameroon, creating sustainable farming communities. Now that’s pretty special. Call in, try ECO eyewear for yourself – you’ll look good, feel good and do good!

Test for Macular Degeneration – it’s important to know the risk factors

May 25-30 is Macular Degeneration Awareness Week. Macular Degeneration (or MD) is Australia’s leading cause of blindness, it affects your central vision and early diagnosis is the key to slowing its progression.

The key risk factors are age (being 50 or older), a family history of MD, and being (or having been) a smoker. At Paul McCarthy Optometrist, our thorough and comprehensive eye examination includes screening for Macular Degeneration and referral where appropriate to ophthalmologists who specialise in treatment options to slow the progression of MD.

Do you have a family history of MD? Talk to your family, ask about older family members and any history of vision loss. Contact us to book a screening test (the test is completely painless) for Macular Degeneration today.
