Groundbreaking research in Japan has seen the release of a new range of spectacle lenses into New Zealand. Hoya, the largest lens manufac- turer in Japan, has released a lens with a diamond coating on its sur- face. Matthew Whittington, optom- etrist at For Eyes in Kumeu, explains why this was important. For years optics have tried to eliminate glass being placed in front of an eye for safety reasons, however, there was always a population of people who had lifestyles that were tough on lenses and so necessitated glass being prescribed, says Matthew. If I prescribed them plastic lenses they would be returned within three months due to scratching. I would replace them with safety hardened glass lenses at no charge. Glass is rated at 12 on the Bayer hardness scale and until now was the hardest lens surface available. Over the last 10 years plastic lenses have improved from a hardness rating of 5, to 8, then 10 in 2007; and now Japan has released a lens at 15 -- for the first time harder than glass. For Eyes in Kumeu have already accessed the lenses and are impressed. The lenses have anti reflection technology for the best cosmetic appearance and light transmission, and are avail- able in all lens designs. Are the lenses expensive? No, they cost an extra $20. Matthew recommends that any persons in the area who are not clients should come and have a look and talk to either Mark, Vicki, Molly or himself to get a feel for what For Eyes offer. I am sure a lot of residents drive away from Kumeu to buy eyewear and eyecare, they shouldn t. We have one of the best optical practices in NZ, and it is distressing to me that people drive beyond Kumeu for an eyetest. Come in, you will be sur- prised! For Eyes, Main Road, Kumeu Village.

Tobacco controls sought The Cancer Society has congratulated members of the Maori Affairs Select Committee for their recommendation follow- ing the inquiry into the tobacco industry in New Zealand and the consequences of tobacco use for Maori. The report includes many of the measures that the tobacco control community and the New Zealand public agree will move New Zea- land towards becoming a smoke free nation. When the recommendations are adopted it will return New Zealand to the forefront of tobacco control in the world, says Health promotion manager Dr Jan Pearson. Hundreds of people from all over the country have put an enormous amount of time and effort into this process. The select committee s report proves that their efforts have been acknowledged and that there is a strong will to control tobacco in Aotearoa. Media, cancer control agencies and governments all over the world are watching to see how New Zealand moves. The Society believes that now it is the Government s turn to take the committee s recommendations on board and take this oppor- tunity to demonstrate inter- national leadership. The current National-led gov- ernment has already strongly supported effective quit services. We believe acceptance of the rec- ommendations will prove that the Government is committed to the health and wellbeing of all our citizens, especially vulnerable groups who suffer the most harm from tobacco and smoking. We would like to thank all Cancer Society supporters and partners who have given us their valuable feedback and support and encourage us to continue our tobacco control efforts for the ben- efit of all New Zealanders.
