For years Transitions lenses have been a staple in the eye care industry as well as at the office of Williams & Associates Eyecare. A clear lens indoors that amazingly becomes a sunglass lens when you step outdoors. This technology has been utilized by millions of people, and continues to be a huge asset in protecting your eyes from damaging UV rays. While transitions lenses are a great product, one thing they lacked was the protection and comfort in the sun that only a polarized lens can provide. Enter the Transitions Vantage. The darkening effect that you know and love with the addition of variable polarization, which means the lens gets darker, your vision is crisper, and you’ll enjoy less glare than ever before!

If you happen to be a contact lens wearer, or if you have been thinking about trying contacts, you should consider daily disposables. It’s a simple concept; you have a fresh pair of contacts every day of the week. You put them in when you wake up then throw them out before bed. These are an especially good option for those of us who struggle with allergies. That itchy, gritty, and dry feeling that some of us get can make extended wear contacts unbearable. The culprit of such problems is protein and biofilm buildup, which accumulates over an extended period of time. This is of course where daily disposables stand out, less time with each pair of contacts means less time to collect buildup, which in turn leaves you with a fresher and more comfortable contact lens experience. Dr. Williams would be more than happy to introduce you to this alternative to extended wear contacts. Let us know if you’re interested!
