Diabetic eye model

Ophthalmic lens

■ Vantage lenses, from Transitions Optical, Inc., are everyday photochromic lenses that begin as virtually clear and non-polarized indoors, though adapt to changing light and increase polarization as they darken, the company says. This optimizes the angle at which light enters the eyes to help control glare and light scatter, and thus, provide crisp, sharp vision, Transitions says. Currently, Vantage lenses are available exclusively in grey.
