Light-reactive lenses deliver perhaps the most widespread range of benefits of any lens or enhancement available. From the convenience factor to the visual benefits to the peace of mind of UV and blue light defense, these lenses are a perfect choice for most any patient. But, as is the case in the great balancing act of daily life, there is almost always a yin to the yang.
Winter is here. That means warm mugs of cocoa, frosty window panes, early sunsets, and dreams of hibernation.
But it also means a variety of visual challenges for your patients. And finding one lens to meet these diverse needs of the season has historically presented its own challenges for eye care professionals. However, a revolutionary, new lens that's usually associated with warmer weather, could be the solution patients and ECPs have been seeking.
Since its debut in March, SunSync Drive XT has generated a ton of interest from patients excited to learn more about this new, extra-active, light-reactive lens that works in the car. We figure, if we’re getting inquiries, you probably are too. So, we’ve pulled together five of the most common questions we've received from patients and provided ready-to-use responses for each.
March is Workplace Eye Wellness month. That may bring thoughts of computers, screens, and blue light to mind, but the word “workplace” can mean different things to different people. A recent shift to more gig economy jobs – or the kind of short-term, contracted, “be your own boss” jobs that are ticking up gradually – means the workplace can be anywhere. Even in your car.
Photochromics are a great choice for a variety of your patients. But sometimes, picking the right frame for a light-reactive lens can be a bit tricky. As an optician, your patients look to you to put them in a pair of glasses that fit right, suit their lifestyle, and of course, help them see better.
To help you help them, we asked 20-year optical veteran Chris Nichols, ABO, for her advice on selecting the ideal frame for a photochromic.
