Transitioning to Fall with light adaptive glasses

Changing light conditions during Fall can leave you squinting and dealing with headaches as your eyes try to adjust to them. For many areas of the country, the sun is much lower in the sky throughout the day, creating both low-lying glare in the early morning and evening, and low light conditions as you do day-to-day tasks.

Transitions glasses are the solution of choice for eyeglass wearers who want to move from light to dark without switching glasses. This doesn’t just save the hassle of carrying around a pair of glasses and sunglasses everywhere you go, but also saves you money as you can experience exceptional visual clarity and comfort with just one pair of glasses.

What are Transitions glasses?

For more than 20 years, Transitions glasses have been delivering effective photochromic lens technology that provides 100% UV protection in all light conditions and quickly changes from clear to dark as you move from indoors to outdoors. These market leading light adaptive glasses provide you with the visual clarity and comfort you need, whether you’re meeting a deadline or playing the back nine.

Transitions lenses work when exposed to UV as trillions of photochromic molecules in the lens coating begin to change their structure causing the lenses to darken. They are constantly recalibrating to respond to even the slightest adjustment in brightness or darkness, so your eyes only ever only go through a quick adjustment period.

Now, their patented photochromic technology means these lenses also protect your eyes from harmful blue-violet light emitted from digital screens, ensuring you stay just as protected indoors too.

What types of Transitions lenses are available?

Transitions lenses accommodate a variety of lifestyles. Whether you’re a driver, work on computers daily, are extra sensitive to light, or consider yourself a fashionista, these light adaptive glasses have you covered. Transitions Signature GEN 8 lenses are the fastest and clearest photochromic lenses to date – perfect for everyday life.

They darken in seconds outdoors and fade back to clear faster than ever before. They also offer blue light protection in addition to 100% UV protection. Choose from 7 stylish lens tints ranging from sapphire to emerald, gray, brown, graphite green, and more.

Transitions XTRActive

Photochromic glasses historically haven’t been able to activate behind windshields, as they themselves block most UV light. However, Transitions XTRActive are designed to respond to both UV and natural light, meaning they activate and offer extra darkness when you’re behind the wheel, making them a safe option if you spend time commuting or driving a lot everyday.

These lenses also fade back to clear 35% quicker than previously. These lenses are also the perfect option if you’re exceptionally sensitive to light or frequently exposed to bright light.

Can Transitions alleviate digital eye strain?

Transitions glasses are available for both prescription and non-prescription wearers and can be paired with Essilor Eyezen lenses, which are designed to relax the eyes and alleviate digital eye strain with UV and blue light protection.

Do I need a second pair of sunglasses with Transitions?

Transitions replace the need for multiple pairs of glasses. You can wear them indoors and outdoors without having to switch back and forth between prescription glasses and sunglasses. A fantastic option if you know you’re prone to forgetting your sunglasses at home, or simply don’t want the inconvenience of taking your glasses on and off during the day.

What colours are Transitions glasses available in?

Transitions lenses provide an exceptional visual experience paired with the latest Transitions Style colors. Choose from the traditional tints like graphite green, brown, and gray or step up your look with a more vibrant lenses colour including:

  • Amber
  • Amethyst
  • Emerald
