Transition Lenses

What are Transitions® Lenses?

Transitions® Lenses are photochromic lenses, meaning they will remain clear indoors, but upon contact with UV rays outdoors, they will automatically react and darken. The brighter the sun, the darker the lenses will turn. Although 70% of people understand the dangerous effects UV rays have on the skin, only 13% understand and recognize that UV rays also harm the eyes. Transitions® Lenses protect against 100% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, ensuring you see clearly and your eyes are comfortable whenever you are outside. Rather than buying prescription sunglasses in addition to regular eyeglasses and having to switch between the two, Transitions will serve both purposes, making them a convenient way to increase your clarity all year-round.

Are Transitions® Lenses Right For You?

Your daily routine differs from the next, and your eyeglasses must fit in with your lifestyle. Transitions® Lenses help you see and feel better, no matter the time of day or the activity you’re engaging in.

Photochromic technology works with nearly every type of lens we offer at our Chalmette optical, including bifocals, trifocals, progressive lenses, shatter-resistant lenses, and more. The added feature of 100% UV protection and consequential glare reduction makes Transitions® Lenses the top recommended photochromic lens in the world! This makes Transitions® Lenses suitable for everyone, even patients with special eyecare needs.
