In Part 3 of our series, we descended from a bird’s eye view to an up-close look at SunSync® Elite and SunSync Elite XT Light-Reactive Lenses, exploring all the reasons they’ve secured the top spot as the most versatile blue light solutions for all age groups. In Part 4, we’ll walk you step-by-step through the patient journey, providing proven tips at each stage to reinforce your recommendation of an ultra-fast light-reactive lens as the best choice to defend against blue light exposure and enhance a person’s visual world by offering unmatched, life-reactive benefits.
In Part 2 of our series, we introduced the various types of lenses and enhancements designed to reduce blue light exposure, how they work, and the unique benefits of each. In Part 3, we’re going to delve deeper into two specific solutions that stand apart due to their advanced technology and always-on blue light defense in any environment.
In Part I of the series, we introduced the situation concerning blue light and its relationship to eye strain. In Part 2, we’ll be exploring the different lenses and enhancements designed to reduce blue light exposure, how they work, where they provide the greatest benefit, and why you would choose each. And be sure to read all the way through to receive a dispensing checklist for blue light and digital eye strain.
One of the hottest topics in eye care is addressing patients’ visual discomfort resulting from increased blue light exposure. And, it’s on the rise. Are you prepared with the knowledge and solutions you need to help your patients combat this ever-growing concern?
Join us as we take an in-depth look at blue light and its concerning visual side effects on all ages in this four-part blog series. Our first post provides an overview of the principle of blue light and its impact on the eye and visual acuity. We also explain how prolonged exposure can lead to eye strain in the case of outdoor light, or a condition called digital eye strain (DES), resulting from the use of digital devices.
On June 24th, Jim Winnick, OD, headlined day two of UUniversity’s inaugural Photochromic Fest, presenting on how he’s built a successful light-reactive lens business by dispensing from the chair. His presentation was so widely requested, we partnered with UUniversity to pull it from the event and post it here with a full transcript.
“If at first you don’t succeed…” quickly emerged as the theme of our recent conversation with Stephanie Armstrong, an optician at Eastchase Eye Experts in Fort Worth, Texas. After decades of trying to find photochromic lenses that were responsive and comfortable, she’d abandoned the idea of ever finding ones that would work for her. Until she tried SunSync Elite Light-Reactive Lenses.
On June 24th and 25th, UUniversity will host its first ever Photochromic Fest. Here's a look at what this one-of-a-kind, two-day event has in store for attendees.
As we age, ocular changes in the eye interfere with our ability to adapt to changing light conditions. Until recently, attempts to alleviate adaptation difficulties with lenses have come up short. However, groundbreaking, new technology may finally reveal a light at the end of a long, dark tunnel for patients suffering the effects of reduced light and dark adaptation capabilities.
Familiar is nice, right? It makes us feel comfortable, even safe. But familiar doesn’t always mean better. Think of those old sneakers you can’t bear to part with. They’re spotted with holes, cling to wafer thin soles, and lost any kind of functional support sometime around the last election. Still, you reach for them on a daily basis despite nagging ankle pain, sore shins, and a left big toe that goes numb after traversing a distance greater than your street corner.
Sometimes recommending a light-reactive lens can be like reaching for those old kicks – more a product of familiarity than performance. And like a worn-down pair of shoes, dated, conventional photochromics can leave the wearer wanting and needing a lot more. Fortunately, there’s no need to continue dispensing them.
Now you can easily provide an enhanced practice experience by offering new SunSync Light-Reactive Lenses patient brochure that promote informed discussions and confident purchase decisions.
