Photochromic Lenses

Photochromic lens technology has been around for over 40 years. Photochromic lenses change from clear to dark based on the intensity of UV radiation. Remove the source of UV radiation from the lenses, and they return to their clear state.

The amount of photochromic reaction (how much a lens darkens) depends upon the intensity of the UV radiation present, combined to a lesser extent with the current temperature of the air. That means photochromics adjust automatically to indoor and outdoor light conditions. Photochromic lenses automatically adjust to outdoor lighting conditions by providing the right level of tint, and return automatically to their clear state; both indoors and at night.

Parting Message from Dr. Eagle

Dear Patients,

I have enjoyed caring for you and your families over the past 30+ years. With a lot of joy, and some sadness, I am writing to let you know that I retired as of March 15th, 2021. As you all know, this practice is staffed with some of the most knowledgeable and caring people in the country. I highly recommend that you select Dr. Nisha Chaudhari for your future medical and visual needs. Dr. Chaudhari has been a pleasure to work with and I am proud to retire knowing she will be taking good care of our patients. Please be assured that my staff and Dr. Chaudhari have been doing everything they can to make the transition smooth and stress free. Your medical records are confidential and will remain on file with West Orange Family Eyecare.

It has been a great pleasure meeting and caring for you all. I sincerely appreciate your friendship and loyalty. I wish you continued good health and all the best in the coming years.

Sincerely,

Dr. Gary A. Eagle
