Oliver Peoples 2014 Campaign Video

Listed below is a link to the Oliver Peoples 2014 Campaign video, featuring Amanda Randolph Hearst and directed by Wyatt Troll. The iconic backdrop of the campaign video is Hearst Castle, the beloved former estate of media mogul and visionary art collector William Randolph Hearst. The short film offers a rare glimpse into the legendary California landmark through the eyes of his great granddaughter, Amanda Hearst as she explores the estate and its treasures.

Larry Leight, Oliver Peoples Founder and Creative Director, together with cinematographer Wyatt Troll, had a vision for the campaign to capture an intimate view of the Hearst Castle through the eyes of its creator’s decedent. The film takes the viewer on a journey through several areas of the sprawling estate.

The spirited short film breathes life into the 2014 Oliver Peoples eyewear collections, which were inspired by the creative culture of art and entertainment in California that the Hearst Castle signifies.

As a pioneering contact lens practice since the 1940s, Mortimer Hirst continues to practise at the leading edge of contact lens care. We are regularly asked to participate in clinical and premarket contact lens trials for the world’s leading contact lens manufacturers.

We are pleased to advise that we are one of the few practices in Australasia who have been fitting and supplying the latest breakthrough in contact lenses.

Dailies Total 1 from ALCON is a unique daily disposable contact lens that has gained widespread acclaim and superior results in Europe over the past two years. It has in fact been so successful that the manufacturers had difficulty meeting demand. Despite our repeated requests to obtain this lens it was delayed until such time that supply could be guaranteed.

Dailies Total 1 has a unique ‘gradient water content’ where the lens ‘core’ consists of a high oxygen transmitting silicone-hydrogel material which then gradually transitions to a high water content (over 80% water) hydrogel surface. Like a surrounding envelope. This unique structure makes for a lens which has a very smooth, highly lubricated surface. The lens has been shown - in our experience and by colleagues overseas - to provide improved comfort and reduced dryness throughout the wearing day while providing excellent vision and deposit resistance.

Value for money, hassle free convenience, improved safety, compliance, reduced allergic reactions and deposits that single use lenses provide, are additional benefits.
If you are thinking about contact lenses or have symptoms of dryness , discomfort or variable vision with your regular disposable or other one day disposables, please make an appointment to see one of our contact lens specialists. As part of our usual thorough optometric examination, we will assess your suitability for Dailies Total 1 and fit and provide some trial lenses so you can judge for yourself.

At present Dailies Total 1 lenses are only available for myopic (short-sighted) eyes requiring ‘minus’ lenses but we expect hyperopic (farsighted) ‘plus’ lenses later in 2014 and potentially astigmatism correcting (toric) lenses and presbyopia correcting multifocals in  2015.
