Transitions lenses – Right in any light.
Transition Lenses are lenses which use photochromatic technology to vary their darkness depending on the amount of sunlight available. A recent survey in Britain revealed that almost half the population is light sensitive and could benefit from sun protective lenses. We estimate that the numbers are similar here in Ireland. That is why we’d like to make you aware of Transitions lenses, a development in variable tint lenses which means you can have both sun lenses and clear lenses in just a single pair of spectacles.
In bright outdoor light, you may often experience glare and discomfort. Transitions lenses darken outdoors, then become clear again once you’re inside. So you see more comfortably, both indoors and out without the need to swap from prescription sunglasses to clear lenses.
Transitions lenses are the latest in lightweight photochromatic technology. The tint varies with the amount of sunlight, giving you 100% protection from UVA and UVB radiation at all times. Exposure to UVA and UVB radiation can lead to speedier development of age related conditions like glaucoma, macular degeneration and long-term vision loss.
