As it turns out, I have some hail and wind damage on my roof due to a storm that came through Indianapolis in 2009.  I didn’t realize this until I was notified by one of my neighbors that they had to file a claim for the damage on their roof and recommended that I have someone inspect mine as well.  I called up a contractor who specializes in this area and they came out, walked around the roof, took some pictures and then we met to discuss ...

As it turns out, I have some hail and wind damage on my roof due to a storm that came through Indianapolis in 2009.  I didn’t realize this until I was notified by one of my neighbors that they had to file a claim for the damage on their roof and recommended that I have someone inspect mine as well.  I called up a contractor who specializes in this area and they came out, walked around the roof, took some pictures and then we met to discuss the situation.

When we were talking and he was showing me pictures, I noticed that he had photochromic lenses in his eye glasses.  This makes perfect sense for his occupation as he goes outside a lot to look at roofs and then needs to come back inside to do paperwork and have meetings with customers like me.  The photochromic lens is a great option as they change from light to dark when he walks outside, providing him with a tinted lens and then back to light when he walks inside, providing him with a clear lens.  Ultimately, this lens option allows Dr. Tavel patients to wear the same eye glass lenses both inside and outside, instead of having to take their clear eye glasses off and put on their pair of prescription sunglasses when they go outside.  While this may not be a big deal for most people to change from clear glasses to sunglasses, it would be for a contractor with his occupation where he is constantly going in and out of the sun.  For him, the photochromic lens offers the best vision value.

I asked him how he likes the photochromic lenses he was wearing (he was wearing the Transitions brand) and he said he loves them and they are the best eye glasses he has ever had.  Given the vast improvements made over the years with photochromic lenses, eye care doctors are recommending them more and more as a vision solution.
