CHICAGO, June 28, 2012— Because processing Transitions® Vantage™ lenses is different than processing other Transitions® adaptive lenses, 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.
Industry professional can watch the videos by visiting www.TransitionsVantage.com or the Transitions Optical YouTube Channel. The videos cover the following topics:
- – Laboratory surfacing and edging: ensuring proper alignment of a semi-finished Transitions Vantage lens
- – In-office edging: guidelines for in-office finishing of an uncut Transitions Vantage lens
- – Inspection for proper alignment: what to look for during the final inspection
- – Presenting Transitions Vantage lenses: tips for talking about the lenses and how to identify a Transitions Vantage lens patient
“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,” said Joseph Smay, O.D., founder and director, Family Eye Care. “I think Transitions Vantage lenses will help drive sales for our office and increase interest in photochromics overall.”
