Get Great Eyesight in all Types of Light
Clear, sharp vision is important indoors and outdoors. If you wear regular prescription eyeglasses and head outdoors during bright daylight, you’ll either need to switch to prescription sunglasses quickly, or risk being blinded by the sun. Photochromic lenses, also called Transition Lenses, solve this problem neatly and conveniently. To find out how these lenses can help you, please consult with our professional optometrists, Dr. Alireza Somji and Dr. Sana Somji, in Sugar Land, TX.
How Transitions Work
When you go outside, these lenses react to short-wave ultraviolet sun rays – darkening progressively until they are similar to sunglasses. When the sun sets and upon your return indoors, the lenses switch back to their original, transparent state. An all-in-one package deal, Transitions Lenses provide you with eyeglasses and sunglasses in a single set of frames. At Horizon Eye Care & Optical, we’ll be happy to fit your prescription eyewear with Transitions Lenses!
Transition Lenses offer a number of unique advantages. As they adapt automatically to your surrounding light conditions, squinting and eye strain are both reduced. They also only darken in proportion to the amount of light exposure, so you won’t be bothered by sunglasses that permit too little or too much light to reach your eyes. They generally become shaded within half-a-minute and revert to clear in the same amount of time. Transition Lenses are ideal for situations where you go back and forth between indoors and outdoors, and they’ll save you the headache of figuring out where you forgot your sunglasses!
Good eye health is critical for promoting and preserving excellent vision. With UV protection, Transition Lenses will also protect your eyes from 100% of damaging sun rays. This lowers your risk of many age-related eye diseases, such as cataracts. When it comes to keeping your kid’s vision safe, photochromic lenses are especially helpful for children who never remember to put on their sunglasses.
