Nothing beats a New York park when it comes to bringing out the best in eyewear AND the 20/20 edit crew! That was proven in January for Sun shot in Central Park so when it came time to “kid” around, Art Director Iris Johnson explored the possibility of Brooklyn’s Prospect Park and the subsequent shoot was nothing short or amazing for the setting, the kids AND the 20/20 editors in their summer finery. This is one cool staff. Even as the day heated up no one wilted and added applause to the husband/wife photo team of Bleacher + Everard for a pint-sized SPECtacle of the best in kids eyewear. Can you guess who made the cover? Every picture tells a story.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve seen some pretty interesting things during clinic time. I recently had the amazing experience of meeting a young man with albinism. In the United States and Europe, there are only one in 18,000 to 20,000 people who have some type of albinism. He was only the second patient I have had the opportunity to work with, and the first Caucasian male. I decided to research the condition.
There’s an internet eyewear retailer whose advertising claims to dispel the “myths” of internet eyewear purchases. Here’s one. “Myth: Online glasses compromise on quality. While there are certain online retailers that sell less-than-quality products, there are plenty of low quality products at retailers that sell at brick and mortar locations. All you need to do is make sure you do your research.” Was that supposed to be reassuring?
