Dr. Yavitz was the absolute nicest person ever, explained everything she was doing every step of the way. Even her receptionist was nice, too. Ended up only paying about $195 for the eye exam, glasses and frames (including the price of the Groupon) My experience was wonderful. I will definitely be back.

I have followed Dr. Alicja Fitzgerald from other practices, and this was my first visit with her at Yavitz. The location is easy to find, the facility is well laid out and decorated with lovely antiques. The staff was friendly and very efficient. Dr. Fitzgerald is unquestionably the best eye doctor I have ever visited. She is warm and personable, takes the time to explain everything she is doing and what it means for my particular health issues. The exam was comprehensive. The prescriptions I've gotten from her in the past have always been perfect. The only downside to the visit was that the glasses were very expensive; I found reasonably priced frames but my vision is such that I can never take advantage of cheaper lenses. They were no more expensive than other places. The Groupon coupon made a huge difference. Overall, it was a great experience. I will be back to see Dr. Alicja, and I will recommend Yavitz Optical to others.

What You'll Get

The Deal

  • $49 for eye exam and $150 towards a complete pair of prescription glasses ($269 value)

Transitional Lenses: Instant Shade for Your Eyes

Doing away with the burden of swapping prescription glasses for a blindfold every time the sun comes out, transitional lenses—more accurately known as photochromic lenses—almost seem like magic. Indoors, the lenses are clear, but outside, they darken as if transforming into a separate pair of sunglasses, shading your eyes from seeing the sun in its bathrobe.

Shady Science

The keys to the transition are the UV rays of natural light. In glass lenses, the glass is embedded with crystals of silver chloride or silver halide. When exposed to UV rays, the crystals combine with the glass molecules, forming elemental silver, which appears dark compared to the clear glass. These days, however, most photochromic lenses are made of plastic. Instead of silver molecules, the lenses use an organic dye. UV rays break the chemical bonds, causing the molecules to rearrange into a form that absorbs the visible wavelengths of sunlight.

Bonus Points

  • The Corning Glass Company—notable today for producing the durable glass on smartphones—invented the first photochromic lenses in 1960.
  • Many photochromic lenses don’t work while driving, since car windows filter out UV light. Ask your optician about alternative transitional-lens options that do work inside vehicles or spaceships headed toward the sun.
