Contact Lenses That Adjust to Light

Acuvue Oasys with Transitions that changes from light to dark. Squint Less. See More™

These lenses are one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2018 list. Squint Less. See More™

Introducing: Acuvue Oasys® with Transitions™

Acuvue’s new line of light-sensitive, vision-correcting contact lenses (developed in partnership with Transitions Optical), which has been in the works for over a decade, is available now. Contact lens contains a filter that senses the amount of light entering your eye and automatically darkens or lightens to maximize comfort. These lenses are one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2018 list.

ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ quickly and seamlessly adapts to balance the amount of indoor and outdoor light entering the eye, including filtering blue light and blocking harmful UV rays. They begin to darken as soon as they’re exposed to UV or HEV light, with Transitions Light Intelligent Technology enabling the lenses to become dark in 45 seconds – and fade back from dark to clear within 90 seconds when going from outdoors to indoors. At full activation, the lenses block up to 70 percent of visible light.

Long known for our sensational eyeglasses selection, Providence Optical is becoming a destination for contact lens patients too. Our contact lens director Dr. Robert Hill  studied with Dr. Marjorie Rah in New England College of Optometry and for 2 years closely worked with Dr. Dennis Karambelas at Vision Care Barrington.

If you were fitted with Acuvue Oasys at your doctor’s offices and wear them currently, stop by at Providence Optical to get free sample in your prescription.

Caroline Abram is a French eyewear designer and founder of the brand “Caroline Abram”. Abram has five international Silmo d’Or awards — 2006, 2008, 2014, 2015 and a nomination in 2017 .

For the past two years, the renowned designer has come to niveous Novosibirsk, a large city in the heart of Siberia (Russia) to photo shoot her new eyewear collection. Caroline explains that she admires the inner strength, subtle beauty and delicacy of Russian women. In two days of shooting, 2,543 photo frames were taken and the models changed their clothes 24 times.

Abram herself directed the models and the photo shoot in general

“Exaggerate, play and provoke”

“Girls! It’s your time to realize the Wonder Woman inside of you.”

We were privileged to chat with Caroline Abram at the Moscow International Optical Fair (MIOF) in February, 2019

Here is a story Caroline told:

“You go to work or to a restaurant. You wear a beautiful coat, shoes  and you have a beautiful handbag. Yet, you sit down at your work desk or at a restaurant table. You put your coat and a purse away and no-one sees your feet :(. What’s left? Your glasses. They tell everything about you. Who you are, what mood you have, what attitude. That’s why, I think, a desire to get new glasses should come first. I want to convince all women that they look amazing in glasses. For me, eyewear is makeup. We play with makeup to change our looks by changing lipstick, blush and eyeshadow colors. With makeup, we convey our mood; sometimes matching clothes, sometimes contrasting, blending or accenting…A woman should wear eyewear according to her mood. 

I also believe that eyewear should empower women, although I don’t consider myself  a feminist, I believe in women’s strength and confidence and eyewear is just the right tool to show that. ”

In April 2008 MADAME FIGARO published small questionnaire regarding the colors of his “inner universe”. We post it the way it was published, in French.

De quelle couleur êtes-vous?

Noir et blanc.

La couleur qui vous fait voir la vie en rose?

Certainement pas une piece peinte en rose vif. Le blanc bleuté, le gris perle très pâle et le rose très, très pâle.

Avec quelle couleur êtes-vous fâché?

Le rouge et le bleu vif pour vivre. Et le mauve et le violet, les pires couleurs en décoration.

Qu’est-ce qui rime avec couleur?


Couleur=malheur…qu’on attribue bêtement à certaines couleurs, comme vert, que j’adore.
