Look forward…

The Brian Lara Vision Collection embodies the journey of a

living legend and a hero in the world of cricket. We set out

to create a collection which represents the passion Brian

Lara brought to the sport and the same held by supporters

as he graced the fields. We pay homage to the game and

monumental history making moments whilst marrying the

sophistication and transition Brian Lara has made from the

field to beyond. This collection started from a desire to give

wearers a sense of pride, reminders that winning is always

an option and becoming a legend always starts with a vision.

What is FOL

for Literacy?

Why is literacy

important?

Ferreira Optical for Literacy presents an opportunity for us to

make reading exciting, learning interesting and development a

natural progression. “Today a reader, tomorrow a leader…” We

aim to raise the level of awareness of the importance of literacy

and education.

The power of literacy is not simply the ability to read and

write, but more so a person’s capacity to apply these skills to

effectively connect, interpret and discern the intricacies of the

world in which they live. Our biggest and most valuable resource

is our people. Investing in the youth is an invaluable contribution

to our tomorrow. FOL for Literacy represents a bridge between

recognition, comprehension and analysis.

Let’s make literacy our key to success.

Good eye care is a lifetime investment

HERE ARE SOME TIPS TO HELP YOU PROTECT YOUR EYES.

• Ensure that you get your eyes examined as regularly as advised by your optometrist. This

will ensure that we detect, monitor and manage conditions that affect your eye sight.

• Take regular breaks when reading or using the computer. For every 20 minutes of computer

use look up at a distant object for 10 to 15 seconds, this will allow the eyes to rest.

• Sit approximately three metres away from the television for best focal advantage. This will

reduce strain on the eye muscles

• Always ensure that rooms are well lit, especially when reading and using the computer. This

will prevent squinting and straining the eyes to view your desired target.

• Ensure that children hold reading material at 30 cm away from eyes, as this will reduce eye

strain.

Literacy Tips for Parents

Parents and have a significant role to play in their

children’s education. Through learning opportunities

and support at home, learning can be fostered from an

early age, right through to high school.

Here are some simple tips:

1. Make books important: Turn off the TV and devices

and read for half an hour. Talk about what you are

reading and/or read with your child, depending on

the age group.

2. Help with homework: You don’t need to be an expert

on each task however you can support your child to

think through how they should plan their time and

complete tasks.

3. Discuss the news: Talk to your children about local

and national news events that are appropriate for

their age. A strong vocabulary is important for oral

language, reading and writing.
