George Eastman is the founder of Kodak. He was a high school dropout, judged "not especially gifted" when measured against the academic standards of the day he was poor, but even as a young man, he took it upon himself to support his widowed mother and 2 sisters, one of whom had polio.
He began his business career as a 14-year-old office boy in an insurance company and followed that with work as a check in local work.
George Eastman's ability to overcome financial adversity, a gift for organization and management, and his lively and intentive mind made him s successful entrepreneur by his mid-twenties and enabled him to detect Eastman Kodak Company to the forefront of American industry.
Eastman introduced the first Kodak camera in 1888. Thanks to his inventive genius, anyone could now take pictures with a handheld camera simply by pressing a button. He coined the slogan, "You press the button, we do the rest", and within a year it became a well-known phrase.
Kodak remains as one of the most recognized consumer brands in the world. Everywhere you go, there is always Kodak. This extraordinary brand awareness has been created by Kodak's consistent marketing efforts from its early days, always featuring the joys and colors of life.
In 1992 the Eastman Kodak Company issued a licensing agreement to Signet Armorlite—a world’s leading ophthalmic lens manufacturer—for the exclusive right to use the Kodak brand for premium ophthalmic lenses. Since then, over 50 ophthalmic products have been developed under the Kodak Lens brand.
Signet Armorlite is now recognized as a leading innovator in ophthalmic lens products, from design through to manufacture. Through investing in the latest manufacturing technology and modern lens design practices Signet Armorlite is currently at the forefront of the digital freeform lens revolution.
Like George Eastman, who democratized the camera and film market with his Kodak, the Kodak Lens range is addressing the mass market where there is a good balance of value and volume. Our products are manufactured with the latest industrial technologies, without ignoring the brand promise of aspiration and affordability: A KODAK Lens for everyone.
A wearers’ test organized in the US confirms one clear fact: The brand helps. Through a blind test, wearers did not see a real difference in the performance among 6 proposed lenses. However, once they were informed of the brands of each lens, 2 to 1 preferred Kodak Lenses. This helps create confidence in recommending Kodak Lens & improves customer satisfaction.
Kodak Lenses are more than just spectacle lenses—they are the gateway to an aspirational and inspirational lifestyle that can easily be turned into reality. Beauty inspires, color inspires. A Kodak Lens inspires.
Blue Blocking Lenses
In today’s hi-tech world, using a computer and mobile phone is a necessity. With the global reach of business and private enterprise, the need for constant connectivity has made much of our lives more convenient and efficient. However, it has also caused some serious concerns among parents, educators, sociologists, and members of the medical community.
The average American child has up to 4 hours of screen time every day. For adults, it’s almost triple that number. According to Nielsen, American adults spend up to 11 hours each day on various types of interactive media. This heavy amount of screen time is, not surprisingly, resulting in significant health issues, especially on the eyes. The most common condition is Digital Eye Strain, also referred to as Computer Vision Syndrome.
What Is Digital Eye Strain?
Digital Eye Strain (DES), also called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), is a condition that occurs when the eye is forced to focus on a digital device, such as a TV, desktop computer, laptop, or smartphone, for a lengthy amount of time. A whopping 70% of US adults suffer from the condition, and people aged 18-34 have reported stronger feelings of eyestrain than those in older age groups.
The longer a person stares at a screen, the less they blink their eyes, and this can cause discomfort or vision problems. Blinking is healthy because it naturally moisturizes the eyes and gets rid of tiny particles that may enter the eye. Less blinking causes dryness, itching, redness. Some may experience mild swelling or pain, although it varies among each person.
DES can also negatively affect sleep patterns and cause upper body pain. When our brains are constantly ‘on’ as we consume content and remain alert for long periods of time, it becomes harder for the body to slow down and rest. A body needs movement and exercise (in addition to sleep and nutrition, of course) in order to stay healthy and in good shape. Sitting on a chair or couch for hours on end often results in stiff shoulders, neck pain, and upper back strain.
Many eyecare practitioners believe that DES can contribute to the development of cataracts and age-related Macular Degeneration, so paying attention to the signs is becoming increasingly important.
Excessive screen time causes a number of DES symptoms, including:
- Blurry or double vision
- Difficulty falling asleep
- Dry or watery eyes
- Neck, shoulder, or back pain
- Red eyes
- Sensitivity to light
- Sore eyes
What Is Blue Light and Is It Dangerous?
There’s just something beautiful, even mesmerizing, about brightly colored lights. Our eyes are naturally drawn to bright lights from shops, Christmas trees, and decorative fixtures. However, while most lights used in home décor or in holiday decorations aren’t harmful, the blue light from digital devices is a different kind of light, and it can be dangerous for your eyes.
Scientifically-speaking, there is a certain range of light that can be seen by the human eye. This is known as the visibility spectrum. Of all the colors of light on the visibility spectrum, blue light has the highest amount of energy and is known to be a primary cause of Computer Vision Syndrome.
Most colors of light on the visibility spectrum emit a constant flow of light. Blue light does not. Its light is less constant, leading to flickering and short disruptions, which forces the eyes to work harder, leading to eye strain and headaches.
Natural blue light is in the atmosphere, and in steady doses, can be good for our overall health. It has been shown to improve memory, moods, and alertness. However, too much isn’t good, either. Excessive exposure to blue light can cause the opposite, such as forgetfulness, depression, and disruption of sleep, and in severe cases, retinal damage. Studies show that less exposure to blue light can drastically improve these symptoms.
Computer Glasses and Blue Light Protection
So how can you protect your eyes from Computer Vision Syndrome while continuing your computer use without too much interruption? The answer is protective eyewear.
Special computer glasses can shield your eyes from harmful blue light and ease the strain on your eyes. They include a blue light filter, so while you use a digital device, they block harmful blue light from entering your eye. This, in turn, ensures that your eyes don’t have to work as hard to focus and can improve your sleep patterns.
Single Vision Computer Glasses are ideal for working on a computer that is at a fixed distance, so it does not move closer or further away. These glasses also work well when viewing several screens at the same distance.
Office or Progressive Lenses are multifocal lenses that correct near or distance vision and can be customized to include computer vision. They have a wider field of vision to help you see more around you without straining your eyes.
Computer glasses for pediatric patients in [token name=”location”] are available to help prevent Computer Vision Syndrome from developing to begin with. DES can cause problems with learning in school, as well, so be proactive – don’t wait until eye strain starts developing.
