Summer Window Display

Our window displays are a very important part of our business. We take great pride in having stylish, eyecatching displays that are unique and catch the imagination of the passerby. Our window display designer, Carol Walsh, of ‘The Retail Artist’, designs and installs all our displays. It is a very effective way to showcase our new designer frames. We change our windows on a regular basis using different themes depending on the season. For our summer theme, Carol has created a French vibe with beautiful lavender flowers.

Why is our son colour blind when both of us are not? Isn’t colour blindness hereditary?

I had an interesting case recently where a young boy, Adam, was brought in by his Mum and Dad for an eye exam to see if he was colour blind.As he was quite young the paediatric colour vision test was used. This test uses easy to recognise shapes such as a circle, square and star, and pictures such as a car, boat, and house. This is a child friendly alternative to the Ishihara Colour Vision Test (the standard colour vision test used in eye exams), which uses number presentations to assess colour vision.

Punchestown Window Competition

In April 2017 we were very busy creating window displays to enter the Punchestown window competition. We were delighted to be picked as one of the five finalists from the locality in this competition.As a team we thoroughly enjoy entering this competition, brain-storming and coming up with different ideas every year! We love creating the windows ourselves, and giving our usual window designer, Carol Walsh (Retail Design) a break!We came up with two window displays this year. In one we had a racecard with names of horses (quirky and funny names) and we used the names of designers of spectacle frames as the trainer names.
