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.

A Message to Our Patients

Although the Governor has rescinded the mask mandate, we have been advised by the Texas Optometry Association that Optometrists follow Infection Control Guidance for Healthcare Professionals recommended by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC). In addition, most, but not all, of our employees are vaccinated. We are hoping to have our entire staff vaccinated by May 1st, 2021.

Until all staff members are vaccinated, the continued safety and well-being of our patients and staff is our number one focus. Masks will be required to be worn by all patients, visitors, and staff while in our practice. We will also continue to follow the CDC’s guidelines and recommendations throughout the practice.

We thank you for your understanding and helping us protect our patients, families, and staff.
