Transitions (or photochromic) lenses are one of the coolest inventions in lenses since they were invented in the 1960s. We have all seen the commercial of the attractive executive who walks into the sun and doesn't have sunglasses (oh no!) until his glasses change and his eyes are now protected (phew) . But there is one place they don't perform to their potential, and that is in you car. In this article, we're going to explain to you why and when it might be necessary to just buy a stylish pair of shades for driving.
First, let's talk polarized.
Transition lenses work by darkening when they are exposed to any kind of UV radiation.
Transitions + Windshield = "Hint of Tint"
If you don't spend much time in the car, Transitions may be your best option, especially since the folks at Transitions are coming out with newer and better generations each year to get rid of the hint of tint and to make them polarized. While Transitions is on the project, it might be safer to buy a pair of prescriptions sunglasses for the car in the interim, especially if you spend a majority of your day commuting.
