Allergy to Photochromic lenses?

I have been experiencing what seems to be an allergic conjuntivitis since last September, just about the same time I got a pair of eyeglasses with photochromic lenses.  These are rimless classes and the rest of the frame is titanium.  Could these new lenses be the problem?  I have never had any allergic symptoms around my eyes.

Very unlikely.  If you want to run a test wear your old glasses for a week and see if it gets better.
