Yves Saint Laurent, 1936-2008

Yves Saint Laurent, a French fashion icon that has revolutionized the eyewear industry since the 1960’s, sadly passed away on Sunday, June 1, 2008 after a long battle with a fatal brain tumor. Over four decades of the high fashion YSL empire has now been brought to an end. He is most notably known for being the first designer to put women in pants and tuxedos and for using African American models for his runway shows, as stated in the Paris AFP earlier today. He dressed many celebrities with his couture designs. His eyewear collection is no exception. He was a master of his artistry.

Contact Lens Safety Tips

Contact Lens Safety Tips

Proper contact lens care Fox News Health Blog published and list of great tips for contact lens users by Dr. Michael Ehrenhaus.

The entire article, titled Seeing Clearly: Safety Tips to Ensure Healthy Contact Lens Use, includes these highlights:

1. Wash and dry your hands before handling your lenses
2. Do not wear lens overnight and if possible try daily disposables
3. Always keep lenses, the solutions, and the storage cases in a clean, dry environment. Never use regular tap water to clean your lenses or cases.
4. Do not share lenses with friends or relatives. (The fit may be incorrect and you can potentially cause more harm than good).
5. Don’t purchase cosmetic lenses without a proper examination and recommendation from an eye care specialist.

The article was published after Fox News reported on an Australian man suing a U.S. contact lens solution maker, claiming the solution caused partial blindness.
