Contact Lenses That Change with Light???

O.K. It’s 2019 and you think you’ve seen it all. I’m guessing that’s not the case, however, when it comes to this newest of new advancements in contact lense technology. And I have to admit, I don’t even wear corrective lenses…but this new tech actually makes me want to. Really. So what’s the big deal? In short: Acuvue Oasys with Transitions…contact lenses that adjust their darkness to light. Want to see it to believe it? Check the two videos below before I go further:

And here is a picture of the product in its box…so you can quickly recognize the real thing when you see it. I do believe these contacts mark a watershed moment in vision enhancement history.

Picture is worth a thousand words, eh? Can you just imagine? No sunscreen on your sunglasses? Nothing to clean to see clearly. Put these on and protect your eyes. Put these on and don’t miss a thing when others are shielding their eyes. Amazing. Image Courtesy: Acuvue

Well, to say the least, it’s clear I haven’t (nor has anyone else at Eyes on Broadway) been this excited over new eye-based technology in quite some time. Because not only do these lenses adjust for light…they literally protect your eyes at the same time. Two wins there. Get in touch with your eye care provider to check these out further… Enjoy!
