Photochromic Lenses: Adaptive Protection For Your Eyes

Do you enjoy heading outdoors, but find changing from clear lenses to sunwear a hassle? It’s essential to protect your eyes both indoors and out, and we understand this hassle may hinder your eye protection in some cases. However, thanks to photochromic lenses, this doesn’t always have to be the case. 

Photochromic Lenses Are Light Adaptive

Also referred to as “light-adaptive” or “variable tint” lenses, these prescription lenses adapt to your changing environment. These lenses are completely clear when you’re inside and automatically darken when exposed to UV light. Even on an overcast day, your light-adaptive lenses will protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Whatever environment or situation you find yourself in, photochromic lenses can keep your eyes protected with ease!

Even better, these lenses are available in many designs to fit your unique needs.

  • High-index lenses
  • Bifocals
  • Progressive lenses

Adding An Anti-Reflective Coating

Adding an anti-reflective coating to your photochromic lenses can improve your lenses use even further. This coating allows more light to pass through your lenses for extra support in low-light conditions such as driving at night, and they rid yourself from the reflections of sunlight and other bright lights. 

Blue Light Protection

Additionally, most photochromic lenses offer added protection from blue light. Many digital platforms such as TVs, smartphones, computers, and gaming systems emit harmful blue light and can cause strain on your eyes. Exposing your eyes to this light for an extended period has also been linked to an increased risk of developing macular degeneration and other eye health problems later in life. By adding photochromic lenses to your eyewear, you can take a simple, but preventative action that your eyes will love.
