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.

In response to the recent announcement of Governor Abbott’s Executive Order on the mask mandates, we would like to reinforce the importance of mask-wearing in our office as recommended by the CDC and the State and Federal Optometric organizations. All staff members, patients and guests will be required to wear a mask in our office even if vaccinated. Although we have been encouraged by the recent declining COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations as well as increasing vaccinations, it is essential to continue our safety efforts to help stop the spread and reduce transmission as new COVID-19 variants spread across our communities.

Our top priority is the safety of our team members, patients and their families. Thus, we will continue to enforce all of our existing COVID-19 prevention protocols by diligently disinfecting all surfaces, practicing hand hygiene, socially distancing and wearing a mask in the office. We truly appreciate your support and understanding as we protect our employees, patients and communities.
