Kapuso hunk Tom Rodriguez is more than an actor – he dabbles in music and the arts, along with his many passions on screen and off.
With his multi-faceted personality and active lifestyle, it is not surprising that he spends long hours in front of either the camera or his laptop, which heightens his exposure to health risks, especially towards his vision.
With growing awareness of these risks to his eyesight, he recently teamed up with Essilor, world leader in ophthalmic lenses, as the newest brand ambassador of Crizal® Prevencia™, a multi-coated lens featuring the brand’s most advanced protective technology.
Not many know that even before becoming one of local showbiz’s certified heartthrobs, art has has been Tom’s first love. The talented artist usually curates his many works on his Instagram account.
Many of his artworks are inspired by Philippine folklore, superheroes and characters from anime, games, and comics. He sketches and sculpts in between takes during drama filming or photo shoots. With all these taking up his non-acting time, Tom can’t help but be exposed to harmful blue lights and this has affected his vision.
“Crizal® Prevencia™ is the perfect protection I have against exposure to harmful elements and blue light everywhere I am, at any time,” shares the 29-year old actor. “It makes me enjoy doing digital animation more, knowing that I am completely protected. As a result, I can create more artwork and perform better as an artist without having to worry about eye strain or blurry vision.”
As part of his campaign with Essilor, Tom stars in the brand’s latest TVC, which shows his daily struggle with over-exposure to harmful blue light. Crizal® Prevencia™ provides front and back protection as well as selective filtering of harmful blue light from devices and the sun that can cause long-term damage such as cataracts and Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD).
