Go indoors, go outdoors, and wear only one pair of glasses
sunsync photochromic lenses give you the ultimate in indoor and outdoor comfort, darkening quickly in sunlight and fading fast to clear going indoors. Plus, they provide 100% protection against harmful UV rays. sunsync lenses are available in a variety of lens types in either gray or brown.
As a VSP member, your benefits provide a savings of up to 40%* on sunsync photochromic lenses. Plus, you can try them risk-free for an entire year.
As photochromics have developed over the years, formulations have allowed them to become more effective, offering quick darkening and quick fading. The amount of darkening in the lens is achieved through chemical reactions of specific photochromic molecules within the lens. As the lenses are exposed to UV radiation, they become darker; the more UV radiation exposure, the darker the lens. Once the UV exposure is removed, the lenses begin to fade back to clear.
Because UV rays are necessary to activate photochromic lenses, the lenses will work just as well on overcast days as they will on sunny days. However, windshields and car windows block most UV rays, meaning photochromic lenses will not darken as much inside vehicles.
Kids spend a lot of time outside, which is great for their physical and mental health, but not so great for their eyes. A person’s lifetime exposure to sunlight and UV radiation has been associated with cataracts later in life, so It's important kids’ eyes are protected whether they're on the playground or the soccer field. But getting kids to remember two pairs of glasses, let alone wear two pairs of glasses, is a challenge in and of itself. Photochromic lenses like sunsync offer a convenient and affordable solution. One pair provides all the benefits your child needs whether indoors or out: clear, comfortable vision in the classroom; tinted, comfortable vision with 100% protection from the harmful UVA and UVB rays from the sun at recess.
Ask your VSP doctor about sunsync, and take advantage of these special offers.
