Everything about eye transitions lenses
Transitions lenses are made with technology that allows them to constantly adapt to changing lighting conditions outdoors to reduce eye strain and fatigue.
Anyone wearing glasses or sunglasses (with or without a prescription) can wear Transitions photochromic lenses. Available in different color lenses and other options to complement any lifestyle, age and various sports and activities. If you are looking for more functionality than an ordinary lens can offer, Transitions lenses are right for you.
HOW DO TRANSITIONAL LIGHTS FUN?
Most Transitions lenses get dark when exposed to ultraviolet radiation. Some Transitions lenses, such as the XTRActive, react when exposed to any form of visible light. According to transitions.com, when Transitions lenses, also known as photochromic lenses, are exposed to ultraviolet light, the structure of trillions of photochromic molecules undergoes a chemical reaction, causing the lens to change color. The molecular structure of the lenses is constantly adjusted to the amount of exposure to ultraviolet radiation, allowing the lenses to adapt to different levels of light indoors and outdoors.
WHEN DID THE TRANSITIONAL LIGHTS INCLUDE?
Photochromic lenses were invented in the 1960s and are one of the most innovative technologies that have appeared in glasses since then.
ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF TRANSITION LIGHTS?
Yes, there are different types. The Transitions series of daily custom lenses includes Transitions Signature VII ™, Transitions XTRActive ™ and Transitions Signature Gen8 ™. All Transitions lenses offer the latest and most advanced adaptive technology and set the standard for performance, quality, comfort and eye protection.
SIGNATURE TRANSITIONS VII
Transitions Signature VII is a new generation of photochromic lenses that change color based on the percentage of UV radiation and the intensity of sunlight in the external environment. The lenses adapt to the respective lighting conditions and provide the necessary darkness, while remaining clear inside while darkening on the outside. Transitions VII changes the shade of the color coming in contact not only with direct light but also with indirect light coming from various reflections of buildings / surfaces, etc. The color changes immediately after the color comes in contact with ultraviolet (UV) radiation and lasts for 30 seconds. It has a very fast discoloration of about 5-7 minutes and reaches 86% in the dark.
SIGNATURE TRANSITIONS GEN8
Transitions Signature Gen8 is the new generation of photochromic lenses. The Transitions research team has decided to develop the lightest and smartest photochromic lens that will be darker on the outside and whiter on the inside, with an improved response and attenuation, all without compromising on protection and quality. Gen8 is the first photochromic lens to feature revolutionary nanoparticle technology, offering optimal vision, comfort and protection throughout the day.
Transitions Gen8 discolors 35% faster and darkens 30% faster than Transitions VII. They have more intense darkness and are more durable and efficient over time. They block 100% of UVA / UVB radiation as well as 20% of harmful blue radiation indoors and 87% outdoors.
Transitions Xtractive is a series of photochromic lenses made with a special formula for lens painting, which allows the lenses to change color without direct contact with ultraviolet radiation. The change in the color of the lens is also done in the car behind the windshield, a very important advantage of these lenses. These lenses offer protection both outside and inside the car. Although they remain quite clear indoors, the eyes remain protected from bright light and harmful ultraviolet radiation emitted by digital devices, which can cause fatigue and eye strain.
It is a great choice for drivers. The intensity of the darkness depends on a variety of external factors, such as air, temperature, the degrees of the binoculars, the composition of the windshield and the position of the driver's seat. Upon entering the car, the lenses will reach 53% of their darkness and this process takes about 30 seconds. The lens has a basic 8% color hue that prevents eye strain caused by artificial light. Outside, the lenses reach 90% of their darkness and the discoloration takes about 5-7 minutes. They also protect 100% from UVA and UVB radiation and are 17% darker than Transitions Signature VII.
Transitions XTRActive lenses are the only Transitions lenses designed to darken when exposed to UV rays and natural (visible, clear or white) light, so that they work even when you are in a car.
DO TRANSITIONS LIGHTS EXCLUDE URBAN UV AND BLUE LIGHT?
Yes, all Transitions lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays and block harmful blue light. The degree of protection from blue light compared to a basic clean lens depends on the Transitions lens you choose.
