Transition into Photochromic Lenses

Photochromic lenses for eyeglasses offer a nice transition for patients bothered by glare and sunlight. Bright sunlight can cause glare when light scatters off reflective surfaces, this glare causes discomfort and dull washed out images. Did you know there are four types of glare?
1-      Distracting glare
2-      Discomforting glare
3-      Disabling glare
4-      Blinding glare

Do any of these bother you?  Then photochromic lenses may be your answer.

The photochromic lens is the first and only everyday lens that is clear indoors and then provides polarized UV protection as it darkens in the sunlight. 

The traditional transition lenses you love now have an added variable polarization that increases as the lenses get darker.  This lens gives you options.

See the difference for yourself and try this new solution for your eyes.

            *Outdoor vision is noticeably clearer and crisper.
            *Glass and water look more transparent outdoors.
            *Glare is reduced even in the brightest sunlight.

Please, stop by our optical shop for a demonstration of this new product and see the difference it can make in your outdoor vision.
