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. Polycarbonate and Trivex lenses are special high index lenses that offer superior impact resistance.

Attention Patients:

As mandated by the College of Optometrists of Ontario to protect our patients and staff, we have been closed since March 18, 2020 for routine examinations.

Since then, we have new protocols and PPE in office to keep you safe.

We are pleased to let you know we are now taking appointments for eye emergencies and telemedicine where appropriate, and repairs to glasses. You may order eye drops and contact lenses online from our website or by sending an email to info@myeyedoctor.ca.

We will keep you posted as this timeline is subject to change.

Sincerely,

Dr. Awadia, Dr. Bedi and Staff
