Transitions Lenses – Photochromic Light Intelligent Lenses
Transitions Lenses Review –
Transitions lenses are a fantastic scientific breakthrough in eyewear, glasses & lens technology.
The lens is clear indoors and will darken and turn to sunglasses shade when outdoors – then return to clear when indoors & vice versa.
All Transitions lenses block 100% of harmful UV light and assist in protection against the new phenomenon of blue light from digital devices such as tablets and mobile phones.
The good news is – we offer the latest transitions lenses and have 3 types to choose from: Transitions Signature®, Transitions XTRActive® and Transitions Drivewear®.
Transitions Signature –
Transitions Signature lenses are a brilliant day/night lens – and will constantly change shade to light or dark depending on your environment. It’s like carrying a pair of clear and a pair of sunglasses rolled into one handy pair of glasses! We have the latest generation 8 transition lens that offers full UV and blue light protection. These come in a multitude of colours and even mirror finishes.
Transitions XTRActive –
An enhancement on the regular transitions – these will also react from light to dark depending on if you are indoors or out but uniquely, they will also react behind the windscreen of your car.
Regular transitions use UV light to react, but this is blocked by a car windscreen so they cannot react whilst you are in the car and are therefore do not offer any protection whilst driving in the sun. Transitions XTRActive use a different light spectrum to change and therefore will go dark when you are in your car and so are an ideal driving lens. They also are extra dark outdoors offering superb protection from the bright light of the sun. These are the perfect driving transitions and they can also be made in a variety of lens add extras such as varifocals or high index.
Transitions Drivewear –
Transitions Drivewear – Uniquely offer both photochromic & polarised light protection and will also adapt whilst in your car. The polarised elements reduce harsh glare that can occur when light bounces off the road or the bonnet of the car.
Transitions® Drivewear® are the only ‘polarised’ sun lenses that adapt to light behind the windscreen and outdoors, helping remove glare off the road and car bonnet for a picture-perfect drive. In overcast conditions, the lenses are olive green in colour, which changes to a copper shade in normal daylight, and dark brown in very bright sun.
They have a light olive-green colour in overcast light, a light copper tone during normal light and very dark brown in very bright sun.
Blocking 100% of the UV rays, they also offer excellent colour contrast during the day.
Drivewear lenses, as the name suggests, are classed as driving lenses and therefore should not be worn at night as the tinted lenses are not suitable for such times. Nor should they be worn as an indoor lens for the same reasons.
