Photochromic Lenses

Photochromic lens technology has been around for over 40 years. Photochromic lenses change from clear to dark based on the intensity of UV radiation. Remove the source of UV radiation from the lenses, and they return to their clear state.

The amount of photochromic reaction (how much a lens darkens) depends upon the intensity of the UV radiation present, combined to a lesser extent with the current temperature of the air. That means photochromics adjust automatically to indoor and outdoor light conditions. Photochromic lenses automatically adjust to outdoor lighting conditions by providing the right level of tint, and return automatically to their clear state; both indoors and at night.

It's good to be back! Eye exams by appointment ONLY. We ask that our patients fill out any necessary paperwork beforehand on the website and arrive 15min prior to your appointment.

All patients with appointments will be asked to wear a face mask for your visit.

We will resume our regular hours of operation, Mon-Fri 9am-6pm, closed 1pm-2pm for lunch beginning Mon, May 4th. For your convenience, we are still offering curbside pickup for contacts and glasses!

Any outside Rx and adjustments to eyewear will be by appointment ONLY, and we ask that you please call our office in advance.

We thank all of our patients for your continued support!
