Ultra Vioolet - Pantone Colour of the Year 2018

Our optical batteries are on full recharge for 2018

Our feet haven’t touched the ground in 2017, it’s been our busiest year yet!

The development of the website has been a labour of love and investing in the OCT equipment this summer has enhanced our eye care services. The feedback from our customers has been amazing and we’re proud to be able to offer this additional service in the practice.

Graham has continued his search for more exciting brands this year. He’s so dedicated, he’s been scheduling his holidays to include visits to opticians stocking the brands he was interested in. It’s amazing how far he goes just to get a feel for the style and quality before meeting up with the brand representatives in an official capacity!

We’ve taken on Barcelona brand Xavier Garcia, Feb 31st from Italy and lifestyle sunglass range Costa Del Mar (if you like messing about on the water, these are the sun specs for you!)

So, after a lot of hard work, it’s time to recharge the batteries over the Christmas hols and look forward to plans for 2018.

In January, Lesley, Barney, Fay and Graham are attending the Local Optical Committee’s Winter Lecture at Bradford University, discussing Myopia Control and NHS guidelines for Glaucoma and Post-Op Cataract reporting. Not quite Barcelona, but Graham will cope with it 🙂

The REAL fun starts in February at the MIDO optical show in Milan where the new season frame releases are showcased. We’re itching to see them! You may have seen in the press recently PANTONE’s colour of the year 2018, Ultra Violet (or Prince Purple!). It’s influenced the catwalk for Spring/Summer at Chloe, Marni, Gucci and Preen.

Will it influence the eyewear collections too? Not long to find out…

Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy, healthy new year!

The Kenyon’s team
