Transitions Lenses change from clear to dark in the presence of ultraviolet light and block 100% of harmful UV rays. This innovative photochromic technology has produced unparalleled eyewear performance. Transitions Lenses are compatible with bifocals, trifocals, progressives, shatter-resistant and standard lenses, and hi index materials.
Transitions Lenses begin to darken the moment they are exposed to UV light. The greater the intensity of UV rays, the darker the lenses become. The moment UV rays are no longer present, the lenses begin to fade back to clear. Most wearers report that the adjustment happens so smoothly, they are unaware of it.
Transitions Lenses contain special photochromic dyes that cause the lenses to activate, or darken, when exposed to ultraviolet rays in sunlight. When the UV light diminishes, the lenses fade back. As light conditions change, the level of tint adjusts, offering the right tint at the right time. It’s important to note that the UV blockage remains constant. Transitions Lenses provide automatic protection from UV rays in both the clear and darkened states.
