HAVE YOU HEARD OF TRANSITIONS LENSES BEFORE?
They are lenses which are clear when you’re inside, and then darken to sunglasses outside.
They are photochromic lenses, you may have heard them called ‘light-adaptive lenses’ and ‘variable tint lenses’.
The lenses start as clear lenses and then automatically darken accordingly to the level of UV light present.
They continuously and smoothly adapt their level of tint so that you see well in all light conditions, without even noticing that the tint of your lenses are changing.
Transitions everyday lenses get as dark as ordinary sunglasses (category 3). If you prefer the darkest lenses available we recommend Transitions XTRActive, which are great for driving as they react behind the car windscreen.
Transitions can help protect the health of your eyes. Sunlight consists of two types of harmful rays:
UVA rays and UVB rays. Excessive UV exposure is dangerous for eyes as well as your skin, it can lead to a number of serious diseases such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration,
making ongoing protection from UVA and UVB rays a must. Transitions are a good option for children, so that they are always protected from UV.
