Processing Transitions Vantage lenses is different than processing other Transitions adaptive lenses, so Transitions Optical, Inc., has created short video tutorials on how to properly align the lenses–ensuring that patients receive the maximum polarization benefits. A video on how to best present Transitions Vantage lenses and the new variable polarization technology to patients is also available.

“I’ve found that the added benefit of polarization broadens the target audience for Transitions lens products. It adds a ‘cool’ factor for patients interested in photochromic lenses, new products and technologies,” says Joseph Smay, OD, founder and director of Family Eye Care in Pittsburgh and New Kensington, Penn. “I think Transitions Vantage lenses will help drive sales for our office and increase interest in photochromics overall.”
