Are Transitions® Lenses Right For You?

Transitions® Lenses are for everybody.

Woman in sunglassesInnovative photochromic technology offers unparalleled lens performance in nearly every lens design and material available today; including shatter-resistant lenses, bifocals, trifocals, progressives, and standard and high index materials. All this, plus the benefits of 100% UVA and UVB protection, glare reduction, and everyday high performance, makes Transitions® Lenses the #1 recommended photochromic lens worldwide!

So no matter where you live or what you do—day in and day out—Transitions® Lenses are the ideal everyday prescription eyeglasses for children, adults, and patients with special eye care needs.

Healthy sight in every light.

  • Automatic UV protection and glare control that’s convenient and effortless
  • Virtually as clear as regular, hard-coated clear lenses indoors
  • Even clearer with an anti-reflective coating
  • As dark as most sunglasses outside in bright light
  • Fast to activate
  • Fast to fade back
  • Block 100% of the sun’s eye-damaging UV rays
  • Reduce painful, discomforting glare
  • Reduce eye fatigue
  • Improve contrast
  • Offer the right tint at the right time in changing light

Seek 100% UV protection, and consider a second pair.

Research shows that only 13% of people associate extended exposure to the sun with damage to their eyes—as compared to 70% who recognize the danger to their skin. Make sure you select photochromic lenses that block 100% of harmful UV rays for your eyes, an important factor when considering eye health and healthy sight as a vital part of a lens purchase.

Due to the rapidly evolving situation with the COVID-19 pandemic, and to continue our commitment to the safety of our patients and community, Vintage Optical will be postponing all routine eye care visits. We will continue to be available for all essential and emergency care during this time.

 

While our office will be closed for non-medical care, there are a few ways we can help with other eye care needs at this time:

If you are scheduled for a non-medically necessary visit in the upcoming weeks, we will call you to postpone your exam to a later date. We ask for your understanding and appreciate your help in reducing the spread of infection in our community.

 

In light of this need to limit community exposure, Vintage Optical will be working with an accelerated telemedicine program to provide certain urgent care needs to our patients from their home.

 

If you have an urgent eye care need, please do NOT go directly to the emergency room, but call our office at 309-263-8611. If appropriate, we will schedule a virtual visit with one of our doctors to address your needs and do our part in protecting our community. If your eye care needs would be better addressed in person, we will continue to be available for in-office emergency care throughout this crisis. As always, if you have a life-threatening emergency, please call 911. We appreciate your help in reducing the burden on emergency departments and urgent care centers during this time.

 

We have wonderful patients and love seeing you in our office, and while this is yet another inconvenience during an already stressful time, we're doing everything we can to limit the effects of this pandemic on our community.
