About Transitions® Lenses
Comfort & Convenience
Transitions® Lenses for eyeglasses use advanced technology to give you the benefits of clear lenses indoors and at night, plus distinct advantages of sunglasses outdoors - all in the convenience of one lens.
Transitions® Lenses are clear indoors and at night but automatically adjust their level of tint to changing light conditions outdoors. They provide visual comfort and quality at any and every moment, helping you to see better today. This is a convenient and comfortable way to overcome the limitations of regular clear lenses which can allow the glare of the sun to cause you to squint and strain your eyes and make it difficult to see objects clearly in bright light.
Ultraviolet UV Protection
In addition, Transitions® Lenses work to protect you just like sunblock protects your skin. Transitions® Lenses help preserve the health and wellness of your eyes by blocking 100% of harmful UV rays. Transitions® Lenses use special photochromic dyes which are activated when exposed to Ultraviolet of UV light. The activation of these dyes causes them to darken and to reversibly "tint" the lens. When exposure to the UV light diminishes, the lenses fade back to clear. As outdoor light conditions change, the level of darkness adjusts, creating just the right level of tint and allowing just the right amount of light to enter the eyes at any given time. This action allows Transitions® Lenses to help protect your eyes from the light you can see - reducing glare, diminishing eye strain and fatigue and enabling you to distinguish contrast more easily.
It's important to note that no matter how light or dark your Transition® Lenses are, they are always blocking 100% of eye-damaging UVA and UVB rays. In other words, Transition® Lenses provide automatic protection from UV rays in any environment, continually protecting your eyes from the light you can't see while you enjoy comfort and vision quality in the light that you can see.
Transitions® lenses begin to darken the instant they are exposed to UV light. The greater the intensity of the UV rays, the darker the lenses become. The moment UV rays are no longer present the lenses immediately begin to fade back to their clear state. Most wearers report that the adjustment happens so quickly and smoothly, they are unaware of it. But, they remain aware of the visual comfort the lenses continue to provide in any light.
Transitions® Are Always in Style
Transition® Lenses are compatible with virtually all frame styles, including the latest fashion frames. And they're available in most types of lens materials and designs -including plastic, polycarbonate (shatter-resistant) and high index (thinner and light weight), and including single vision lenses, bifocals, multifocal and progressive lenses. TheOpticans at The Eye Care & Surgery Center will help you select the Transition® Lenses that provide the everyday convenient protection, visual quality and visual comfort you are looking for.
