Transitions adaptive lenses are premium eyewear lenses that adapt continuously to changing light levels outdoors.  They block 100% of UVA and UVB rays thereby protecting your eyes and reducing eyestrain and eye fatigue and preventing cataracts & macular degeneration (and wrinkles!!)

Transitions adaptive lenses are available in prescription or with no prescription power and are available in Brown, Grey and Graphite Green and now they are also available in new funky colours such as Amethsyt, Amber, Emerald Green and Blue!

There are 3 levels of Transitions adaptive lenses

  • Transitions Signature which is the most popular as it fades back to completely clear at night or indoors
  • Transitions XtrActive which is the darkest transitions lens, it has a comfortable “hint of a tint” at its lightest level indoors
  • Transitions Drivewear which combines the functionality of transitions with the clarity of a polarised lens to eliminate glare in all types of daylight outdoors and even behind the windscreen of a car.

Transition lenses are available in single vision lenses making them suitable for both distance and near-work glasses (for those who enjoy reading outdoors), as well as varifocals and they are available in standard plastic and high index (thinner) plastic lenses with Crizal UV.

Transitions Adaptive lenses offer convenience to you the wearer by having tinted and clear lenses in one set of spectacles, and are ideal for anyone sensitive to bright light or anyone who spends a lot of time outdoors.

Children’s eyes need protection, too.  In fact, children are more at risk of the eye-damaging effects of UV exposure than adults.  The eye of a child under the age of ten allows more than six times the amount of UV light to penetrate than an adult’s eye, so it’s never too early to start protecting a child’s eyes.

Think of Sun-lenses as sunscreen for your eyes!
