Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 28, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 THE UTHBRIDCE HERALD Wednesday, July 28, 1971 r w ivmcy Many disadvantages over others Neiv soft contact lenses only be stored in normal saline solution (salt and hand- led with carefully washed and dried hands. Cleanliness is not nearly as great a factor with hard lenses. The hard lenses can be sci- entifically fitted with instru- ments to the eye and leaves enough space for laerimal fluid on the cornea. Fitting the soft lens presents another problem as the only method to date is a trial process, said Dr. Palmer. A sample set of 75 lenses is used by the doctor at the initial fitting and then adjustments arc made at subsequent exami- nations. But a new fitting means a new lens as the soft lenses cannot be reground or reshaped. The soft lenses conform to the shape of the cornea when worn and therefore can't be used by people with any more than a slight astigmatism. They also have not proved satisfactory for people who have had catar- act operations or muscle imbal- ances of the eye. The hard lenses on the other hand fit over the cornea, act as the front refracting surface of the eye, and consequently can be used with a high de- gree of astigmatism. Progres- important. The lenses may also sive Myopia (near sighted- By CHRISTINE PUIIL Staff Writer New soft contact lenses have been approved by the food and drug administration in Canada and will soon be available in Lethbridge, according to Dr. C. A. Palmer, city optometrist and participant in the recent international convention of the Canadian Association of optom- etry in Vancouver. The objection against the lenses in the past was the chemical make-up. The soft lenses are made of hydrophilic (water absorbing) material and contain from 38 to 60 per cent water, depending upon the man- ufacturer. The soft lenses not only ab- sorbs the lacrymal (tear) fluid and transmits nutrients such as oxygen to the cornea, but will absorb foreign materials which are harmful and will destroy the lens itself. For example, hair spray will completely ruin the lenses and bacteria can ness) in children can be con- trolled by hard lenses while shoft ones are of no help. Not only is the soft lens much larger so it can easily be seen over the edges of the iris, but it can cause irritation and redness of the eye. The soft lenses can easily be turned inside out and if worn accidently this way, are com- grow inside selves. the lenses them- To combat this problem, the soft lenses must, be boiled every night for 15 minutes be- cause the cleaning and aseptic- izing of the lenses is vitally pletely ineffective. also no markings There are to indicate left or right eyes on the soft lenses as with the red dot on the right eye of the hard con- tacts. Life-span of the soft lens is from six months to a year after which the lenses will break down and the edges fray or crack. Companies manufactur- ing soft lenses will guarantee them up ed to a month, but Fall fashion shoivings have common denominator By PEGGY MA5SIN PARIS (Router) At the halfway point in a jam-packed four-day schedule of fall and winter showings, Paris couture has evolued several common de-nominators. These include the lithe, body- conscious silhouettes with both fit and flare, knee-length hem- lines, the epidemic of little black suits accented with white quilted satin collars and cuffs, skirts there and neon colors; and is Gaston d'Erthelot's collection for Chanel which maintains the classic style of the late creator in a lighter and brighter range of fabrics. A Paris couture collection tra- ditionally ends with a bridal gown, and a symbol of the di- versified moods in each house was Cardin's "nine each model wearing a different wedding gown clepic'jng all the scratched soft lenses can't be repaired. The hard lenses can last almost indefinitely before being replaced and scratches are easily ground out, said Dr. Palmer: The three Canadian com- panies producing the soft lenses said there is less eyelid adap- tation with these lenses but Dr. Palmer said he finds this un- reasonable because of the large size of the contact and the thicker edge. He also said -that neither hard nor soft lenses may be used while swimming but are fine for nearly any other activitiy. The soft lenses are more costly than hard lenses, require much more care and need fre- quent replacement, but Dr. Palmer said, "People want them, so it's up to the indivi- dual." BREAD AND HONEY IN THE RAIN An extra special treat for the Saint-Laurent exchange students was fresh bread and honey a pleasant surprise after the cool- ing dip in St. Mary's Reservoir were it not for the torrents of rain which seemed de- termined to dampen their spirits.

Mr. Gold is the Saint-Laurent alderman and chaperone travelling with the Quebec students. and the bright colors and pat-1 varied styles in the Cardin terned fabrics. Everyone interprets the new looks in his or her own way, ranging from Balain's classic soplu'stication, which is not going to outdate next year or two years from now, to Pierre C a r d i n 's madly avant-garde treatments with bias cutting, asymmetry played up with color cuts, and the sporty tweed pon- chos, tabards and jumper's worn over black body stockings. There are Louis Feraud's bright young fashions with cinched waistlines, swirling full collection. Over-all, clothes are more mature and sophisticated with a revival of great dressmaking techniques as opposed U> the youth cult which hs.s prevailed for the last three years. The bright young clan from the Left Bank of Paris is still around, and it's a season of choice although even the young trail-blazers will tone down the hippie approach, and thankfully all those gypsies, peasants and the Marie Antoinette milkmaids have been guillotined.

These include checking the directions and expirty date, only taking drugs 7hen neces- sary and being wary of taking several kinds of drugs at the same time. "When your doctor pre- scribes a medicine, tell him about any self-medication the the directorate ad- vises in Dispatch, a monthly publication. Self medication might help relieve minor ail- ments but if symptoms persist or return too often, a doctor should be consulted. Patent medicines, prepackag- ed drugs for relief of minor ail- ments such as headaches or in- digestion, come under the Pro- prietary or Patent Medicine Act administered by the direc- torate. The basic object of this law is to ensure that the public is able to buy safe, effective home medication. Patent medicines regulated by it are those that might present some hazard or lack a wide safety margin. Drugs under the act are reg- istered by the food and drug directorate on a voluntary ba- sis. This means that the for- mula and claims for use have been evaluated and found ac- ceptable for promotion to the general public. To register such a product, a tion and proper directions for manufacturer must apply to the I use. He reviews labels for any directorate, which examines the application to ensure that its claims can be supported and that the preparation contains no harmful or potentially dan- gerovs ingredients. The examiner also checks do- sage, efficacy, compatibility of ingredients, the product's ac- false or misleading claims and makes sure they contain neces- sary directions. If the application is approved, the preparation is registered and an annual licence issued to the manufacturer for Canadian sale of his product.

Popular suede steam cleaned Although suede is bigger than ever on the fashion scene, clean- ing those boots, sandals and pocketbooks is still somewhat of a problem. Between thor- ough cleanings with special suede cleansers, there's a way to remove surface dirt. Boil a pot of water, put the item above the pot so the steam can reach it, then brush the suede in one direction. This method helps get rid of the loose surface dirt. Youth exchange on colony visit By BEVERLY-ANN CARLSON Herald Staff Writer A ranch encompassing acres is almost unbelievable for most people, even in Western Canada, but for students visit- ing Lethbridge from Saint-Lau- rent, Que. their visit to Mc- Intyre Ranch, Tuesday, VMS "something as termed by one of the students. The visit to the ranch was part of a day-long plan- ned for Hie students by the ex- change personnel in Lethbridge, and was directed by Chic Chi- chestcr, city alderman, and chaperone for the Lethbridge students visit to Saint-Laurent earlier on this summer. Another point visited by the students, along with Lethbridge exchange students, was the West Raley Colony near Ms- grath. After getting an early start from city hall. Tuesday mom- ing, the students were taken by bus, directly to the ranch where they treated to a tour cf the barns and rangeland. One of the interesting sights which they saw was a "buffalo jump" where the Indians in early Canadian history had run the buffalo over to kill en masse. Carcasses were then, stripped for the hides, and the meat cured for winter use. An interesting side-light of the tour on the rangeland, was the sight of a large herd of cattle, wh'rc some of the more adventurous of the French-Ca- nadian "lore-rangers" attempt- et to get close enough to the cattle to pet, or even talk without success. The West Raley Colony was the next step for the day, fol- lowing a brief picnic and free period at the ranch. Fresh home made bread, and hone from the Colony's own bees WES the order of the day as the home-made di s h- washers, potatoe peelers, and other equipment was viewed, as well as the dress, and cus- toms o! the Hutterites. Student's were amazed at the amounts of bread made, to feed the colony and the "fantastic" taste of the preserves being prepared by the women. A Ixmt of swimming in the St. Mary's reservoir rounded out a full day of activities for the exchange students, as they headed back, tired, but happy, to their respective homes. Today is the last day they will Ire in town, as Thursday morning the students from SaintLaurent will fly back to Montreal. Parting farewells will be exchanged between the stu- dents in Calgary as the Leth- bridge students will travel on the bus with them ti Calgary for their 11 a.m. departure fc: hbme.
