Protect your eyes from UV and glare

Transitions lenses: the most convenient way to enjoy better vision, indoors and out, today and tomorrow.
Transitions lenses change, so you don't have to.
Does the glare of the sun cause you to squint and strain your eyes? Do your eyes sometimes get tired when you are outside? Do you sometimes have trouble seeing objects when the bright sun is shining?
Transitions lenses are clear indoors and at night but automatically adjust their level of tint to changing light conditions outdoors. They provide visual comfort and quality at any and every moment, helping you to see better today.
And just like sunblock protects your skin, Transitions lenses help preserve the health and wellness of your eyes for the future by giving UV400 protection and blocking 100% of harmful UV rays, so you can see better tomorrow too.

CLEAR INDOOR AND AT NIGHT: Indoor and at night Transitions lenses are as clear as regular clear lenses.
DARKER OUTDOOR: Transitions lenses begin to darken the instant they are exposed to UV light. The greater the intensity of the UV rays, the darker the lenses become. Transitions lenses adjust quickly as light conditions change to provide the appropriate level of darkness and protection.
VERY DARK IN SUNLIGHT: Transitions lenses are as dark as most sunglasses outdoors in bright sunlight. Transitions lenses darken when exposed to UV rays from sunlight. When the UV light diminishes, the lenses fade back to clear. As outdoor light conditions change, the level of darkness adjusts, creating just the right level of tint and allowing just the right amount of light to enter the eyes at any given time.
Transitions lenses don't stop at improving visual quality and visual comfort.
Like your skin, your eyes need sun protection too. Transitions lenses provide UV400 protection, blocking 100% of damaging UVA and UVB radiation and helping to preserve your long-term eye health.
Convenience and protection can be fashionable, too.
Transitions lenses are compatible with virtually all frames and are available in a wide range of lens materials and prescriptions. Chances are, if your prescription is available in a clear lens, it's also available in a Transitions lens.
Some can benefit even more
Transitions lenses are particularly ideal everyday prescription eyewear for children, active adults and some patients with specific eyecare considerations.
Children and teenagers
Kids need to see better too. Whether in school or outside playing, children often have even greater demands on their eyes than adults do. And, those young eyes may be even more sensitive to bright sun light. That's why it's just as important to provide them with better vision today. Indoors and at night, Transitions lenses are as clear as regular clear lenses, making it easy for kids to function in class or do their homework. Outdoors, they automatically adjust their tint to minimize glare, making it easier for kids to see better while significantly reducing the discomfort of squinting, eye strain and eye fatigue.
For long-term protection, parents often take precautions to protect their children's skin from the sun, but they may not realize the importance of protecting their eyes from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays. Because kids spend more time outdoors, the average child receives three times the annual UV exposure as an adult. What's more, because the eyes of children are not fully developed, kids are significantly more vulnerable to ultraviolet rays - as much as six times more ultraviolet radiation is able to penetrate their eyes than an adult. Transitions lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, providing constant UV400 protection.
Children also require a safe, shatter-resistant lens material. Transitions lenses are available in sturdy, lightweight, shatter-and impact-resistant materials in the industry's widest selection of lens designs and brand names.
As you go about an active life that can take you frequently from indoors to outdoors - as you work and pursue recreational activities - the last thing you need is compromised vision, eye strain and fatigue or the worries of your eyesight being damaged by UV exposure. Transitions lenses are the most convenient way to optimize vision performance and increase visual comfort while also ensuring automatic, everyday protection from harmful UV rays for anyone who wears prescription eyeglasses. By reducing glare and blocking 100% of UVA and UVB rays, Transitions lenses are the most convenient way for the active adult eyeglass wearer to see better today and tomorrow.
Patients with Special Needs
Patients with special vision needs may be excellent candidates for Transitions lenses because of the convenience and protection they provide. Ideal candidates for Transitions lenses can include:
- The elderly
- Individuals with sensitive eyes
- Individuals with certain medical conditions
- Individuals who have developed cataracts or other eye conditions
- Individuals who have undergone recent eye surgery
- Individuals taking certain medications that have ocular side effects
Certain people develop a heightened sensitivity to light, known as photosensitivity, and are more susceptible to invisible UV rays and visible glare. And some medications, even those used to treat conditions unrelated to vision, can cause the eyes to be more susceptible to damage from UV rays.
