SunSync Elite received the “Award of Excellence” in the “Lens Coating” category at July’s OMEGA=19 optical tradeshow in Australia.
If someone were to ask your professional opinion on the perfect lens to enhance with a photochromic, you wouldn’t be alone or incorrect in responding, “progressive, bifocal, or single vision.” With all the benefits of light-reactive lenses, they’re a natural fit for everyday eyewear options. But, there’s another lens type that’s so perfectly suited for a light-reactive enhancement, it’s surprising more eye care professionals don’t utilize it as a fantastic second-pair recommendation.
In part one of this three-part series, we took an in-depth look at standard light reactive lenses . In this second installment, we’ll be covering their extra reactive associates.
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.
The first photochromic lenses appeared in 1964, and quickly drew interest for their unique ability to darken in sunlight and fade back indoors. However, the first generation of photochromic lenses came with cosmetic and functional barriers – two of the largest being that it took them about an hour to fade and they never got fully clear.
Fast forward more than half a century, and the technology has greatly expanded, as have the types of light-reactive lenses available. Reaction speeds, darkness, clarity, and overall aesthetics have all improved greatly, and there are now four different types of light-reactive lenses available: standard, extra reactive, ultra-fast, and polarized.

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.
You’ve likely seen (or will see) different companies claiming their lenses or enhancements reduce a specific or fixed percentage of blue light. And you’ve probably noticed that SunSync Light-Reactive Lenses do not do that.
When you hear or read that a lens product filters 90% of blue light it may sound good, but it is in fact, misleading.
With a handful of exciting innovations and the portfolio’s increasing popularity among eye care professionals and patients in 2018, it’s no wonder so many ECPs tuned in to the SunSync Blog this past year.
But which posts caught the eyes of ECPs the most? Let’s count them down, starting from number five.
