Advertisement A....at all distances from just one pair of glasses? re you sick and tired of finding it hard to focus on objects near and far simultaneously? Or frustrated at constantly putting your glasses on and taking them off again just to see clearly? It's not your fault, after the age of around 40, the eyes lose their ability to focus easily on things that are near (known as presbyopia). Single vision lenses can only solve half your problem as they will blur your distance vision and bi-focals are simply old technology. The new Essilor VariluxTM f-360° progressive lenses help you to see near, far and everything in between as naturally as possible. The difference is exceptional. You can now try these latest generation progressive lenses from Visique Papakura Optometrists-totally risk free. VariluxTM Physio f-360 is a customised lens, designed to meet your exact vision requirements. By analysing the impact of your vision restriction, the optimal lens surface can be defined for each wearer, resulting in up to 30% more natural vision compared to standard VariluxTM lenses. Kristine Jensen, Owner Optometrist at Visique Papakura says that these new lenses lift the restriction on your vision correction for all distances, using one single pair of lenses. There's simply no need to have two sets of glasses any more. "I get great satisfaction out of giving people a lens that I know is going to give them the ultimate vision correction possible for their lifestyle", says Kristine. It's totally risk free to try the new VariluxTM lenses because if you aren't satisfied with them, then Kristine will swap them for another lens type at no extra cost up to three months after you get them. This is because she's confident that they are the best solution available for presbyopia. The other good news is that up until the 31st of October 11 you can get these lenses for the same price as the previous Physio 360° model so now is the perfect time to upgrade your glasses. With many lower quality lenses than VariluxTM Physio f-360° now likely available in NZ and possibly sourced from a constantly changing variety of overseas optical suppliers, Kristine feels sorry for those people who have bought lower quality lenses without first experiencing the amazing vision that's possible with the new VariluxTM Physio f-360° lenses. So don't put up with blurry vision or the hassle of having multiple pairs of glasses any longer. There's simply no need. Just phone Ally or Veronica at Visique Papakura on 298 2898 and have a chat about new VarlixTM Physio f-360° lenses. They would love for you to discover the best VariluxTM lens for your vision and lifestyle. You'll be amazed at how natural and clear the world will seem at any distance Plus you will get Double Fly Buys points on a any purchase over $20 until the 31st August 11. Visique Papakura Optometrists 202 Great South Rd, Papakura Ph 298 2898 Email email@example.com Kristine Jensen Your Local Optometrist Speaking up can be challenging ordeal Power of speech: Carolin Jentzsch, from Papakura, is spreading the word on speech therapy. Photo: MELISSA KINEALY By MELISSA KINEALY Speaking up is a hurdle people living with speech disorders jump over every day. But just give them a little time, Carolin Jentzsch says. The speech therapy master's student from Papakura says one of the main issues for people who've suffered strokes and traumatic brain injuries is that others think they're stupid because they can't get their words out. They can hear and think fine -- it's getting the message out.'' People need to allow more time for someone with speech difficulties to respond in a conversation, she says. It's all about time.'' Ms Jentzsch is passionate about what she does and is keen to raise awareness of speech therapy and the areas it cover, including swallowing disorders, child developmental and speech delays and any other form of impaired communication. Her clients have told her stories of loneliness, depression and isolation because of their difficulties. They speak of having problems on the phone with people hanging up on them or being treated like they're dumb if they're approached on the street, she says. But they are smart people, they just have trouble getting their words out.'' Now in her second year of study at Auckland University's Tamaki campus Ms Jentzsch has been working one-on- one with patients since she started on her masters. It's all about assessment, diagnosis and treatment intervention,'' she says. She's also researching speech language therapy with Maori adults. The recent success of the film The Kings Speech has lifted awareness of speech therapy, she says. Ms Jentzsch is the Auckland student representative in the New Zealand Speech Therapy Association. She's also organising a speech and language therapy team for next year's Round the Bays.
