VCPN VISIONCAREPRODUCTS.COM with Transitions Optical was the devel- opment of a polycarbonate segmented multifocal, the Transitions VII Flat Top 28. For 18 years, patients request- ing a Transitions polycarbonate bifocal could not get one or were given a sub- stitute, until now. The Transitions VII Flat Top 28 from Younger is a polycar- bonate composite lens that incorpo- rates a thin photochromic front sur- face bifocal layer made of Trivex. The 1.59-index lens is surfaced, polished, edged and dispensed just like a clear polycarbonate lens. Another photochromic option, the PhotoFusion by ZEISS adjusts to any light conditions—full sunlight, indoor lighting and everthing in be- tween—while providing 100% UV protection. Environmental testing shows that PhotoFusion by ZEISS lenses retain excellent performance over time and maintain consistent color as they darken and fade back so your patients will have the best visual and cosmetic experience. VSP offers its sunsync lenses in its full portfolio of UNITY lenses. The company's one-year 100% satisfac- tion guarantee allows VSP mem- bers to try them risk free. VSP's sun- sync lenses are available in gray and brown. VISION EASE offers two pho- tochromic lens options. VISION EASE LifeRx light responsive lenses are polycarbonate and an excellent choice if you have had a poor expe- gray/brown single vision and several progressives.

Formula- tions have to be made to ensure that components of an AR treatment are compatible with the monomer and other treatments on the lens base. If they are not compatible, the lenses can craze and wearers have a less than ideal experience. The second photo- chromic option from VISION EASE is a plastic lens called ChangeRx. This lens offers high performance photo- chromic characteristics at a reduced price that can bring a healthier mar- gin to your dispensary. If you have a patient who has had diffculty reading GPS LCD screens with their polarized lenses, look to Rudy Project and its Impact X Po- larized Photochromic lenses. These lenses have polarization technol- ogy tailored to allow wearers to read those screens without compromising the clarity or performance of the lens. By slightly dialing back the opacity of the polarizing flter, these glasses cut glare without cutting out the ability to clearly read LCD displays.

At their value pricing, PhotoViews performance compares to brand names and offers 100% UVA/UVB protection.
