Transitions® Light Intelligent Lenses™ lenses are made with technology that allows them to automatically adapt to changing light. Transitions lenses darken when outdoors and return back to clear when indoors.
Anyone who wears glasses or sunglasses (prescription or not) can wear Transitions Light Intelligent Lenses. Different color lens tints and other options are available to complement every lifestyle, age, and a number of different sports and activities. If you're looking for more functionality than an ordinary lens can offer, Transitions lenses are right for you.
Yes, there are several types. The Transitions line of everyday Light Intelligent Lenses includes Transitions® Signature®, Transitions® XTRActive®, and Transitions® Vantage®. All Transitions lenses offer the latest and most advanced adaptive technology and set the standard for performance, visual quality, visual comfort, and eye protection.
Transitions® Signature® lenses are the #1 recommended Light Intelligent Lens worldwide, and they're the ideal, everyday choice for enhanced vision. Indoors and at night, the lenses are fully clear. Outdoors, these lenses continuously adapt and darken with every variation of light so you can consistently see your best. Transitions lenses enhance your vision by providing more clarity and better contrast, as well as reducing glare, eye fatigue, and strain for effortless vision.
Transitions® XTRActive® lenses are the best lenses for extra protection, even in the car.
Uniquely designed to protect your eyes from the brightest lights, especially in hot climates, Transitions XTRActive lenses get darker outdoors and even activate behind your car windshield.
Transitions XTRActive lenses block 100% of UV light, and help protect from harmful blue light. These lenses are ideal for wearers who are sensitive to light and spend a great deal of their time outdoors.
Transitions® Vantage® are the best lenses for glare reduction outdoors.
Combining the benefits of light intelligent lenses and variable polarization, Transitions Vantage lenses are ideal for those looking for crisper, sharper vision outdoors. Transitions Vantage is the world's only intelligent lens with variable polarization, the first everyday lenses to both darken and polarize in bright, outdoor light.
Whether you're a hiker, gardener, or cyclist, Transitions Vantage lenses help reduce glare so you can enjoy your outdoor passion to the fullest.
Transitions Vantage lenses offer a complete protection from UV rays and help protect against harmful blue light.
Most Transitions lenses work by darkening when exposed to UV radiation. Some Transitions lenses, such as Transitions® XTRActive®, react when exposed to any form of visible light.
When photochromic lenses are exposed to UV light, trillions of photochromic molecules in the lens begin to change structure. This reaction is what causes the lenses to darken.
All lenses that adapt to light use photochromic molecules. The superiority of Transitions brand technology lies in their exclusive, patented formulas. Each formula is integrated into the surface of the lens. These molecules constantly and smoothly recalibrate so the optimal amount of light reaches your eyes whether you're in bright sunlight, under cloud cover, or indoors.
Some Transitions lenses are polarized. Transitions® Vantage® lenses are Light Intelligent Lenses that not only darken when exposed to UV rays but also polarize in bright light, so you have clear, non-polarized lenses indoors and dark, polarized lenses outdoors when you need it most.
Yes, all Transitions Lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays.
Yes, all Transitions Lenses block harmful blue light. The degree of protection against blue light when compared to a basic clear lens depends on the Transitions lens you choose and where you are.
Yes, but it depends on the kind of Transition lenses you wear. Transitions lenses darken because of exposure to UV rays and since the windshield of your car is designed to block UV rays, most Transitions lenses won’t adequately darken when you’re in a car.
Transitions® XTRActive® lenses are the only Transitions lenses designed to darken when exposed to both UV rays and natural (visible, clear, or white) light so they will work even when you’re in a car.
Transitions were invented in the 1960s, one of the most innovative technologies to emerge in eyeglasses.
