Transitions Lenses

If you wear glasses you’re familiar with the hassles of dealing with the sun. You carry both your glasses and sunglasses wherever you go, switching back and forth each time you go outside and then head back in. One simple alternative is to wear glasses with transition lenses. These special lenses darken in the sun then lighten when you go inside.

Transitions lenses for eyeglasses are made with technology that allows them to adapt continuously to changing light conditions outdoors to help reduce eye fatigue and strain. Anyone who wears glasses or sunglasses (prescription or not) can wear Transitions photochromic adaptive lenses. Different color lens tints and other options are available to complement every lifestyle, age, and a number of different sports and activities. If you’re looking for more functionality than an ordinary lens can offer, Transitions lenses are right for you.

How Do Transitions Lenses Work?

Most Transitions lenses work by darkening when exposed to UV radiation. Some Transition lenses, like XTRActive, now react when exposed to any form of visible light. According to transitions.com, when Transitions lenses, also known as photochromic lenses, are exposed to UV light, the structure of trillions of photochromic molecules undergo a chemical reaction, causing the lenses to darken. The molecular structure of the lenses continuously adapts to the amount of UV exposure, allowing the lenses to accommodate varying levels of light indoors and outside.
