No limits on the number of eligible Bonus Pairs per Consumer provided all requirements in these Official Rules are met. Dealers, distributors and other ophthalmic lens resellers are not eligible for this offer. Discount will be applied at purchase. Discount value will not exceed purchase price under any circumstances. Warning: Fraudulent submission of multiple requests and/or providing false information disqualifies any discount request and could result in federal prosecution under mail fraud statutes (Title 18, USC Sections 1341 & 1342).

Price Transparency: In the event that Consumer seeks to have any of the lenses acquired under this promotional offer reimbursed, in whole or in part, by a federal, state, commercial or other health care or vision care program, plan or insurance (including, by way of example, Medicare or Medicaid), Consumer may be required―pursuant to applicable federal or state laws or regulations, including, but not limited to, the federal health care program anti-kickback statute, 42 U.S.C. §1320a-7b(b), or pursuant to Consumer’s contractual arrangements with insurers or other third party payers―to fully and accurately report and disclose the net purchase price of all such lenses. For purposes of this promotional offer, the term “net purchase price” means the net discounted price that the Consumer paid for each pair of lenses acquired under this promotional offer, taking into account all price reductions (e.g., discounts, rebates, free products and services). Please note that, for the purpose of determining the net purchase price of the lenses acquired under this promotional offer, the value of all price reductions (whether in the form of free or discounted lenses or otherwise) likely should be allocated proportionately among all of the lenses acquired under this promotional offer rather than applied solely to the lenses that were offered at no charge or at a reduced price. Thus, for example, if Consumer receives product A (that ordinarily costs $60) at no charge because she bought

product B (that ordinarily costs $120) under a buy-one-get-one promotion, Consumer will have received a discount of $60 (in the form of a free product A). When calculating the net purchase price of product A and B, the $60 discount likely should be allocated proportionately between product A and B (based on the ratio of the ordinary price of each product separately as compared to the ordinary price of the products together) because the discount was offered as a bundled sale, i.e., Consumer could only receive product A for free if she purchased product B. The ordinary price of products A and B together is $180 ($60 plus $120). The ordinary price of product A makes up 33% of that total price ($60/180) and the ordinary price of product B makes up 66% of that total price ($120/$180). Those percentages can be applied to the $60 discount to determine the net purchase price of each product. Thus, 33 percent of the $60 discount (i.e., $20) would be allocated to product A, meaning the net purchase price of product A would be $40 (i.e., $60 minus $20), and 66 percent of the $60 discount (i.e., $40) would be allocated to product B, meaning the net purchase price of product B would be $80 (i.e., $120 minus $40).

Golden Optometric Group Seeks Participants for Clinical Trial

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Email: dca@goldenoptometric.com

Whittier, California — Nearsightedness or myopia is often thought to be simply an annoyance that requires children to wear glasses or contact lenses, but this condition is far from benign. It is now well established that people with myopia have an elevated risk of developing potentially blinding conditions such as glaucoma, choroidal neovascularization, and retinal detachment.1,2 Even more alarming is the dramatic rise in the prevalence of myopia that we have seen around the world over the last 45 years.3It is now estimated that 5 billion people will have myopia by 2050.4

Myopia has increased so much in some East Asian countries that 80-90% of school-aged children are affected.5,6 In China alone, over 450 million people are myopic prompting Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier this year to issue a directive to protect children’s eyesight that includes increased regulations and control over internet video games.7

Based on foundational technology developed with academic partners, SightGlass Vision, Inc. is running a clinical trial for FDA approval for spectacles that have been designed to correct myopia as well as reduce the rate of myopic progression in children. Currently available glasses in the United States only correct myopia, but do not help prevent it from getting worse.

Golden Optometric is one of 14 clinical sites actively recruiting participants in North America.

Study participants must be 6- to 9-years old. The study involves using the study glasses for up to three years. Trial participants will be able to choose from a variety of eye glass frames and will be asked to use one of three types of lenses instead of their normal glasses.

Children will be assessed by a study doctor and, if suitable, be invited to participate in the study and to attend up to 14 further visits over three years. The glasses used in the study are provided at no cost and participants will be paid a small reimbursement for time and travel expenses. Children participating will also receive comprehensive eye care at no cost during the time they are in the study.

Parents who are interested in having their 6- to 9-year-old child with myopia participate in this clinical trial can find more information at www.kidsvision.info or contact Dr. Ardaya with Golden Optometric Group at (562) 692-1208.

In 1972, Dr. Sheldon Golden moved his practice to its current location of 11245 E Washington Blvd. in Whittier, CA and later opened a second location in West Covina. Dr. David Ardaya is a partner and the current president of Golden Optometric Group’s Whittier location and is actively involved in clinical research, acting as the principal investigator multiple clinical trials.Through his leadership he strives to provide personalized and compassionate care to all patients.
