Transitions Light Intelligent Lenses

Big things are happening in the optical industry! This July Essilor expanded its Transitions lens portfolio. New Transitions Signature Style Colors include: amber, emerald, sapphire, and amethyst.  And if a color change wasn't enough, your glasses can now become mirrored!  New Transitions XTRActive Style Mirrors include: gold, silver, pink, red, green, and blue.

What are Transitions lenses?

Transitions are a type of photochromic lens.  Photochromic lenses are light intelligent lenses; they darken automatically depending on the level of UV light.  Essilor Transitions Signature lenses use patented Chromea7 technology.  This technology allows the lenses to be more responsive to light than other lenses on the market.

How do Transitions lenses work?

UV light exposure causes millions of photochromic molecules in Transitions lenses to change structure. This change causes the lens to darken.  The photochromic molecules are constantly adjusting to making sure the right amount of light reaches your eyes. 

What are the benefits of Transitions lenses?

Transitions lenses provide the ultimate light protection for your eyes. They block 100% of UVA and UVB light and filter up to 2X more harmful blue light than a clear lens.  Harmful blue light can be found both indoors and outdoors from things like electronic devices and the sun. Studies have shown that blue light contributes to eyestrain and may be linked to eye diseases like macular degeneration.   The light intelligent lenses automatically lighten or darken to give you the best lighting conditions without having to switch glasses.

Who can benefit from Transitions lenses?

Any glasses wear can benefit from Transitions lenses.  Transitions can be a part of any prescription glasses order and work in any frame type.  The new color and mirror choices allow you to customize your glasses even more.
