Vision correction made easy A good night s sleep not only gives you a clear head, but now it can give you clear vision. Highbury Optome- trists have a new tech- nique, that can correct vision in children and adults without having to undergo laser surgery or wear glasses or day time contact lens. Corneal Reshaping involves the patient wearing a therapeutic contact lens overnight which works gently to reshape the front of the eye (cornea) and in turn corrects vision (myopia or nearsightedness) in just two weeks. There is also now good evidence to show that Corneal Reshaping can actually prevent short sightedness from getting worse. Tony Cradwick of Highbury Optometrists is one optometrist who is seeing really positive results from his patients. It s a real break- through in treating chil- dren who are myopic, he says. We can now take a child, who has parents that are highly myopic and wearing coke bottle glasses, and prevent that child from ending up in the same predicament. Tony says the tech- nique was first estab- lished overseas in the 1960 s but has become very popular in the past five years. He thinks the recent resurgence of this tech- nique is due to modern technology. This is a great leap ahead in technology and a fantastic option for children, he adds. It s great for people who are too young to have laser surgery. They find they are suddenly free of glasses and con- tacts which means they can enjoy themselves even more in the class- room and on the sports fields. Corneal reshaping is now an internationally accepted treatment option and is offered by thousands of optome- trists around the world including several practices in New Zea- land. To find out if this treatment is suitable for you phone 418-1347. Rok Me -- passionate about jewellery Xmas gift idea: A funky and affordable ICE watch from the stylish, multi-coloured collection from Belgium makes a fun, Christmas present for someone you love. Rok Me Jewellery in Bir- kenhead is ardent about eye-catching jewellery, with a brilliant selection of stunning and unusual pieces unavailable else- where locally. The Nava range of jewellery fresh from New York is new to this country and exclusive on the Shore to Rok Me. It s a range of haute couture gemstone designs whose beauty will leave you breathless! Owner Shelley Roberts says the Nava range is hugely popular but is in limited supply as it s not mass-produced Because there are only a few pieces of each style crafted, your Nava piece is virtually a one- off! Nava s New York cock- tail ring comes in 14 carat gold with black and white diamonds and sapphires, sterling silver with white diamonds or sterling silver with enamel and diamonds -- all radiantly gorgeous to enhance your hands and your outfit at summer parties. There is on display a fabulous range of men s and women s dress watches, including attractive and slim-line Skagen watches, the Danish design with Swiss and Japanese movements. If you re looking for a fun, attractive but inex- pensive Christmas pres- ent, look no further than a funky ICE watch from the stylish, multi- coloured collection from Belgium. Shelley says white watches are hot this summer, but if you re into bright colour there ll be an ICE watch that you or someone close to you will love! The Pandora range also makes an ideal Christmas gift, one that s universally appreciated. Pandora s still a very popular range, with its intricate charm bracelets in sterling silver and 14k gold, says Shelley. Shelley also stocks the elegant Ellani Collection, a glamorous and sophis- ticated range of contem- porary jewellery for all ages, crafted from pre- mium materials such as sterling silver and cubic zirconias. For something bold and funky check out the Australian-designed jewellery from NAJO, made from Mexican sil- ver. Or for designs that reflect the beauty of nature, you ll love Missie von Lubbe, an amazing jewellery label whose pieces feature highly original rings based on the designs of the Pacific. Rok Me is also able to help you design exquis- ite, handmade engage- ment and wedding rings, or reset an old favourite. You can meet by appointment with a designer to talk through your ideas and requirements, and be involved in the crafting of a unique and creative piece that expresses you exactly! Shelley has been in the industry for 25 years, and as a diamond grader who graduated from the Gemological Institute of America she is able to source the highest- quality diamonds and other gemstones for your special ring.
