SelectSpecs Staff Achievements: Scott Goodwin

A massive well done to our very own Optical Lab Manager Scott Goodwin who has 5 pieces of his work shown in his first exhibition, after years of keeping painting, drawing and photography as a hobby.

SelectSpecs Staff Achievements: James Cooper

Big congratulations to our very own Video Editor James Cooper for coming 4th in a Parkour and Freerunning competition!

We’ve all known for a while here at SelectSpecs that James, much to our bewilderment, loves to jump off the side of buildings, but it’s great to see his talents and skills recognised outside of work.

The event called Project Underground was the largest held by Team Katalyst in Rotherham, close to Sheffield over 25th and 26th June.

Surgeons Perform Pioneering Operation to Find Cure for Blindness

Surgeons at Moorfields Eye Hospital in London have performed an operation many are saying could lead to a cure for blindness.

The operation performed last month on a 60-year old woman who developed Macula Degeneration involved “seeding” a tiny patch of healthy eye cells and implanting it at the back of the retina.

So how can this help in getting her sight back?  First, let’s take a look at what Macula Degeneration is and how it can affect any of us:

What is Macula Degeneration?

The Macula is a very small part of the retina that converts the light entering the eye into an image; helping us to read, write...   read more

Emma Reviews SelectSpecs Glasses

Under Review: More Antares and Infinity Frames (Video)

Clearly one video is not enough to try and express how many frames are on offer at – and so I’ve been sent more frames for me to try on and criticise! Well, criticise I tried, but it proved quite hard (again) to nit pick any of these frames that are all under £70. What a bargain!  I did however, review the frames and I have provided a very frank and sincere appraisal….see what you think 🙂

Keeping your glasses clean – How to and Tips!

We wash our clothes to keep them clean after we wear them; so why are glasses any different? Natural salts and oils in your skin can have a negative impact on your glasses if you don’t keep them tip-top, especially if they’re worn through action-packed sports hobbies or nearly demolished by the kids.  That’s why we’ve decided to give you a word of advice, or two, to ensure any new glasses you’ve purchased from us stay looking that way.

Keep them protected

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the benefits of locking away your glasses in a hard case when you’re not...   read more
