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.
The new brochure, in an updated booklet format, educates patients on the problem of slow fade-back speed, introduces them to the technology that overcomes it, and helps them easily match their lifestyle to the perfect SunSync Light-Reactive Lens.
Welcome to the third and final installment of our ultimate guide series on light-reactive lenses. In part one we covered standard photochromics before shifting to extra reactive photochromics in part two. In part three we’re going to look at a new and exciting category of light-reactive lenses that only came into existence in October 2018.
Eye care professionals were asked for their opinions on SunSync's revolutionary offering and were quick to heap praise on the ultra-fast lens that changes from dark to clear in seconds.
Now your high-index-wearing patients can enjoy the revolutionary fade-back speed of SunSync Elite.
This month, 20/20, the prominent optical industry magazine, is highlighting the SunSync® Light-Reactive Lenses portfolio in a front-page feature named "Welcome to the Golden Age of Photochromics."
Since its debut, we’ve been telling you how fast SunSync Elite is. But, as the old saying goes, seeing is believing. So, we figured we’d show you exactly how much faster this revolutionary light-reactive lens fades back than the top-selling photochromic in this dramatic video comparison.
In a recent VSP provider survey,* eye care professionals (ECP) were asked for their opinions on SunSync Drive XT, the light-reactive lenses that get darker outdoors and stay dark in the car. From ECP experience to patient satisfaction, SunSync’s extra reactive lenses earned high marks among industry pros.
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 optical challenges for your patients. Finding one lens to meet these diverse needs of the season has historically presented challenges for eye care professionals. However, a revolutionary, new category of light-reactive lenses now offers you and your patients a single solution, with specific benefits for each season.
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.
