Photochromic lens treatments are better than ever. At one time they were characterized by darkening slowly (and not all that much), slow darkening and slower clearing, poor performance in high temperatures, and a noticeable gray tint indoors. Today, they have become a product that delivers the benefits without the annoyance of previous generations.
And as time has passed, more benefits have been discovered. Everybody knows that photochromic treatments make a primary pair of glasses more useful by providing a dark tint outdoors while being virtually clear indoors. As people have become more aware of the dangers of UV radiation, the 100% UV protection they provide has become a more important. And now it has become clear that photochromics protect against the effects of blue light – even in their “inactivated” state indoors.
Today’s best photochromic treatments darken very rapidly in the sun, and clear much more quickly than previous generations. (Photochromic molecules will always take longer to return to their normal state than they do to activate, so they’ll never clear as fast as they darken.) They are clearer indoors than ever before. They are less sensitive to temperature, and they maintain great performance through the life of the prescription.
