What is the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? Do you check your cellphone for messages and catch up on email before you even get out of bed?
In today's increasingly-technological society, people are now engaging in digital behavior called "multi-screening". A typical multi screen user spends more or less 7 hours and 24 minutes on the screen daily. Of that time, 34% is spent on mobile phones; 33% on TV; 23% on laptops and 10% on tablets. Consumers balance their time between smartphones, tablets, PCs and televisions and this multi-screen use behavior is being readily being adopted everywhere. It has quickly become almost the default for most of us notwithstanding that these electronics are emitting a dangerous blue light that is negatively impacting our vision.
Essilor's Crizal Eyezen™ Protection
We need eye protection since we spend so much time on gadgets. With this in mind, the global leader in ophthalmic lenses, Essilor introduces Crizal Eyezen™. Crizal Eyezen™ lenses are designed to replace ordinary prescription lenses or to assist occasionally the ones who usually do not need glasses, when viewing their digital devices. They exist in three (3) different optimizations according to the type of screen most used and the age of the patient. It features three revolutionary technologies—Eyezen Focus, Light Scan™ and W.A.V.E Technology that work in sync to relax the eyes from all digital stress and protect against harmful blue light.
Eyezen Focus Technology helps relieve the eye’s focus when using digital devices and reduces eye strain in ultra-near distances or for reading small characters by giving an extra power in the lower portion of the ophthalmic lens.
Light Scan™ Technology is a unique light filtering technology which protects eyes from the harmful blue-violet light emitted by digital screens.
W.A.V.E Technology eliminates lens distortion for sharper, clearer vision at every distance and better vision even in low light.
“Crizal Eyezen enhances the digitally connected lifestyle of the millennial generation” says Essilor Philippines general manager Dr. Emelita Roleda. “While ordinary glasses help you see the world, Eyezen enhance the way you live in it. With clearer, sharper vision, you can connect to the digital world better, while getting protection for your eyes at the same time.”
Crizal Eyezen™ is just one of the many technological innovations of Essilor. People’s visual needs will change as technology continues to advance and Essilor ensures that these needs are always complemented through its constant technological innovations, innovations that aim for people to see the world better.
Get your Crizal Eyezen™ lenses in clear or Crizal Transitions at the leading optical shops nationwide. Don't settle for regular eyeglass lenses when you can have Crizal anti-reflective coated lenses. Crizal lenses are the best performing lens you can buy to do away with reflections that cause eyestrain and fatigue.

Christmas cheer celebrations at The British School Manila commenced with the staging of ‘Christmas with the Aliens’ by Nikki Lewis last December 3, 2015.
What happens when aliens crash on Earth at Christmas time? A group of school children rehearsing their Christmas play retells the nativity story to these alien visitors in an enchanting play! Year 1 and 2 children's many weeks of rehearsals and hard work finally paid off! The children captivated the audience with their fantastic acting and rendition of great songs such as “Where am I?” and “A Star Kept Shining”.
It was a well-endowed beautifully set play. The Main Hall was transformed into a festive theater. Nursery and Reception children were twinkling stars, dressed in spangly silver and gold. They entertained us with their wonderful performances of the traditional Christmas Songs ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’, ‘Little Donkey’ and the ever popular ‘Feliz Navidad’.
It was a spectacular way to begin the festivities at BSM culminating in the rapturous applause at the finale. BSM’s youngest children in school not only sang beautifully and looked amazing in their costumes but they also delivered their lines with confidence and panache---a testament to the practice and hard work put in by the students guided by their teachers to get to this level of performance. The EYFS and KS1 production reminded us all what Christmas is all about: bringing everyone together regardless of our differences.
British School Manila also had its Christmas shop open all week for the children to buy their families and friends gifts for the holidays.
