“A new patient came into our Kokomo office the other day. She, a 42 year old woman, came to see us from her husband’s recommendation.  She hadn’t worn prescription glasses since she was a teenager, but she was finding that her near/reading vision wasn’t being helped as much as she needed by over-the-counter reading glasses.  She also knew she was overdue to have an eye examination.  The Dr. Tavel eye care doctor found that she required correction for astigmatism in addition to magnification for reading, explaining why those “drugstore” readers hadn’t worked well.  After talking with her about her prescription and lifestyle, we decided on Unique progressive lenses in the Trivex material for best possible vision at all distances-near and far.  She shared that she was someone who often wore amber lenses to enhance definition when driving at all times of the day, and she liked the effect.  She was concerned that she would have to give up those benefits in order to have her best-corrected vision.  Problem solved with the new Kodak Photochromic Day/Night lenses.  These lenses fit with her prescription as this lens increases in contrast and has the definition characteristic of an amber lens in low light with a photochromic capability that deepens to a warm brown hue when exposed to brighter sunlight.  She is very pleased with the result as she is able to see more out of each day and have glasses fit for her lifestyle!”
