Photochromic lenses adapt to light using various reactions to reach a desired darkness and protection from bright light. Several companies now manufacture photochromic products that are available through Three Rivers Optical.
SeeMore Changers 6
SeeMore Changers 6 is a new photochromic product that now gives you the opportunity to offer photochromic tiers to your patient. Priced 40% below Transitions, this gives eye care professionals the ability to provide a quality photochromic lens for patients who reject Transitions due to its cost. Just as the industry markets non-glare products, Changers 6 offers a lower-cost, entry-level solution for price-sensitive patients who desire a photochromic lens.
Photochromic lenses comprise a little over 20% of lenses sold in a typical practice. Studies show that 80% of your patients want photochromic lenses. If the disconnect is based on price, this provides a new, significant opportunity to meet your patients’ needs.
SeeMore Changers 6 is available in plastic SV, FT28, gray and brown CR, gray and brown poly, SeeMore Free Form SV and progressive lenses.

Transitions lenses change when they are exposed to UV light (such as sunlight). When this happens, trillions of photochromic molecules adjust their structure to darken the lens. Patients enjoy the flexibility of a lens that is light indoors, but automatically adjust to brightness when outdoors.
As a PPG product, Three Rivers Optical has been a significant Transitions partner since its inception in the early 1990’s. We were one of the first Transitions Lab of the Year (1994) and were one of three finalists in 2013-14. The Transitions website provides an amazing amount of practice management and marketing tools at low or no cost to help you grow your business.
