Recent Information on Daily Disposable Lenses

Did you know that fitting practices are changing as contact lens materials and manufacturing methods change? Actually, this has been happening since 1971 but at a faster pace since the advent of the first disposable contact lenses launched by Johnson & Johnson back in 1990. Since then manufacturers have been improving lens materials to make them more comfortable for all-day wear, more resistant to surface deposits, significantly more oxygen transmissible, easier and more stable to mould at high volumes, and cost efficient for both the manufacturer and wearer.

Eye doctors have always been concerned with wearer compliance. Are there any clinical signs of frequent prolonged wear? Will the wearer keep their lens case clean? Will they rinse their lenses before storing them in fresh multipurpose solution so that surface debris may be washed off prior to storage? Will the wearer replace their lenses for a fresh pair at the interval recommended by the eye doctor? All of these are relevant questions that contact lens fitters will ask anywhere in the world. Daily disposable lenses resolve many of these issues, most especially when speaking of younger lens wearers. In fact, recent third party market data shared by Alcon®, a leader in contact lens manufacturing, supports the fact that eye doctors are recommending daily disposables more.

Since 2008 the daily disposable lens growth in the market by dollar was almost five times as fast as all other lens modalities (types of fits). Monthly disposables experienced modest growth in comparison but two week disposables declined during the same period. This data speaks to the fact that eye doctors appear to have accepted the tremendous compliance benefits that daily disposables deliver to wearers. It also speaks to the growing number of younger wearers coming into the market and how daily disposable lenses help them maintain excellent eye health by eliminating some of the handling and storage factors previously considered problematic for them. Monthly disposable lenses continue to enjoy a strong presence in the market. New lens materials have continued to support this lens modality with very oxygen transmissible materials that are extremely comfortable and easy to maintain.

Only your eye doctor can select the right contact lens and modality for you. Ask him/her about recent products and how they may be good for you. Contact Lenses are considered medical devices for which a prescription is required. Please refer to your eye care provider for more information.

Premier League Football Player Photos – Handy Hints and Tips For Taking Good Photos

This guide is about the specifics of taking your snaps at ‘the match’ and hints about the do’s and don’ts. Make an effort to understand your own camera’s capabilities – ‘happy snappers’ can take great football players photos as today’s modern digital cameras are all pretty good. One important thing to recognise is that taking photographs at a sporting arena, can require a permit, as obtained by the press and media organizations. However, with the proliferation and qualities of mobile phone camera’s and the compact digital cameras, all stadiums and clubs now turn a blind eye to their use by the general public. Remember this, it’s important, it is a privilege not a right and acting as such can avoid difficult situations.

Equipment: Read the camera’s instructions and understand what you can and can’t do with your point and shoot. Extra battery power is essential, small and easy, keep them warm in your pocket – longer life. An extra memory card is always a good idea. An SLR camera may be too bulky to get past security plus, may make you look like a ‘pro’ and therefore attract the wrong kind of attention. In the same vein, tripods and telephoto lenses may prove troublesome.

Location: Most premier league stadiums are modern and will not have restricted views. However, older more characterful arena’s such as Goodison Park and Craven Cottage for example, will have pillars and stanchions blocking some views. Also sunshine can play havoc with a good shot either in reflective light or, cast shadows, be prepared to adjust your camera’s setup manually if you can. Or, check which direction the stand you are choosing seats in is facing; remember the sun rises in the east, sinks in the west.

Planning: If you know where you’re going to sit, you can plan what kind of shot you think best will work from your station. Information about such positions can be gleaned from the club or internet. If you can choose you seating, then avoid being behind the goal – too much excited jumping up and down around you. Or, being too high as the angle will seem odd and the digital zoom will not be enough.

Shots: If there is a barrier or wall that you can utilize to steady the camera then, more chance of avoiding ‘shake’. You can always use football players taking free kicks or corners as a bench mark shot as there are moments of ‘stillness’, this will assist you calibrating and manual changes to the camera set up. Want football players photos close up? Then try and get a seat near the corner flag or front row along the touchline.

Continuous mode: Your camera should have this facility. If there’s a melee in the box or, good action close by, then continuous mode will give you the best chance of catching the action. Typically the built in flash turns off on ‘continuous mode’ if not make sure you do it manually.

We wish you happy snapping and you get the shots you want, hoping the simple guide will assist you getting your favourite football player photos.

Middlesbrough is Back at the Top Table of English Football

The Pride of the North East

Pride of the North East is a richly deserved title given Middlesbrough Football Club's recent results, sharing the spoils away to title contenders Arsenal and Manchester City.

Few people outside the north east expected Boro to make a fist of it amongst the big boys feasting at the top table of English football this season. Although the club might lack a glut of star players and expensive signings, what they do possess is one of the brightest young coaches in the game, having honed his coaching skills under the watchful eye of Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, at a time when his star burnt brightly in the firmament. As you'll discover later, Mourinho was linked with another famous Middlesbrough coach as he took his first tentative steps in his coaching career.

When Aitor Karanka was appointed as Boro's first foreign manager in November 2013, the club may have appeared to be taking a gamble on raw talent, rather than playing it safe with a trustworthy pair of hands with extensive experience of the British game. A lack of success at the hands of Gordon Strachan and Tony Mowbray, may well have influenced their thinking.

This leads me to reflect on a period in Boro's history, when the club's hierarchy in their wisdom decided to turn towards Malcolm Allison, who at one time just like Karanka was considered to be one of the brightest young coaches of his generation. The difference being, that when Big Mal turned up at the old Ayresome Park stadium in October 1982, his star as a visionary coach was very much on the wane.

Ironically when Malcolm Allison was manager of Portuguese side Vitoria Setubal just before his dramatic arrival on Teesside, he was aided by former Boro conditioning coach Roger Spray and an ambitious young coach by the name of Jose Mourinho. While the special one's stock might be currently on the decline, as was the case with Big Mal during his fateful spell with Boro, few would argue that in their heyday, they were the brightest coaches of their era. As a fitting tribute to Big Mal, who sadly departed from this world in October 2010, Roger Spray holds him in such high esteem as to consider him as influential as Mourinho and Arsene Venger!

The club being in dire financial straits further compounded the depression enveloping the Boro faithful. While neighbors Sunderland were given the tag of 'Bank of England' in the late 1950s due to their abundance of cash, the early 1980s was a time for drastic financial measures at Ayresome Park.

When you consider that the club is today valued at around £ 87 million and that the incumbent English manager by the name of Southgate opened the floodgates and splashed a whopping £ 13.6 million on the record breaking signing of Brazilian Afonso Alves during the 2007-08 season , Allison's antics seems to belong in a long forgotten distant past!

When Big Mal was lured to Teesside by ambitious chairman Mike McCullagh, the club was bottom of the old second division, attracting gates of only 5,000, half a million pounds in debt and losing £ 12,000 a week!

Today the average attendance at the Riverside is an impressive 30,000 in stark contrast with the poorest crowd since the Second World War of only 5,435 that witnessed their home game against Fulham in March 1984. Almost inevitably this led to Allison being relieved of his managerial duties. With Middlesbrough having finished in sixteenth position in the old second division during his first season, the club's heroic effort in holding Arsenal to a 1-1 draw in their FA Cup fifth round home tie, represented the zenith of his short stint with the club. Unfortunately time was not of the essence and Big Mal failed in his quest to revive the sleeping giant of the North East!

The manager's antics and double standards were reminiscent of scenes familiar to viewers of the Carry On films of that period. In keeping with his reputation for an insatiable appetite for stunning birds and the high life, Allison was in his seventh heaven, entertaining his female companions courtesy of the finest champagne at the Baltimore Hotel, while running up a hefty bill of £ 3,500. In comical fashion, his answer to the required harsh financial measures was to sack the club's tea man on £ 18 per week! Fortunately the man capable of a fine brew was reinstated following assurances that the players would pay his princely wage!

Big Mal, always one for the limelight, embarked on his mission to bring stars to the Teesside gloom, with ambitious efforts to sign George Best from San Jose Earthquakes and the Liverpool duo David Johnson and David Fairclough! He succeeded only in signing the ex- Ipswich Town star Kevin Beattie to bolster his defense, although by this time he was crocked by knee injuries! Indeed some would say that his best capture came off the field in the form of local beauty, 28 year old school teacher Lynn Salten, by far the classiest act on show!

Today the footballing landscape has changed beyond recognition with Middlesbrough plying their trade at the wonderful Riverside Stadium and recipients of the huge sums of money assured by entry to the top table of English football.

Whether Karanka and his charges can preserve their premier league status remains to be seen, but the Boro faithful will be encouraged by recent accomplished performances. Some would say that football has come a long way since the 1980s, but it seems that today's global nature and rich trappings of the premier league, seems to have left our beautiful game void of true characters like Malcolm Allison, who despite failure on the field , certainly lit up the North East with rich experiences that will forever be a part of Middlesbrough Football Club's folklore!
