Photochromic Lenses
Indoors & Outside.

Photochromic lenses are eyeglass lenses that are clear (or nearly clear) indoors and darken automatically when exposed to sunlight. Other terms sometimes used for photochromic lenses include “light-adaptive lenses,” “light intelligent” and “variable tint lenses.”

The most popular brand of photochromic eyeglass lenses sold in the United States is Transitions® lenses. Because of this, some people — including some eye care practitioners — refer to photochromic lenses as “transitions lenses” or “transition lenses.” But there are other brands of photochromic lenses available as well.

Understanding Variable Tinted Lenses.

Transitions® lenses have UV protection. When transition glasses darken in reaction to the sun’s rays, the tint they take on has UV protection properties that can rival the best traditional sunglasses. It’s an easy way to effortlessly protect any sun-related eye issues, such as cataracts.

Protect Your Eyes
with Adaptive Lenses.

Transition eyeglass lenses adapt and darken when exposed to UV sunlight. These harmful UV rays can eventually damage the sensitive macula of your eye. The macula controls your central vision, but over time this vision can be affected by things like age, smoking, and UV light.

One way to protect the cells in your macula from breaking down is to always wear sun protection when you are outside, and transition eyeglass lenses provide you with a different eyewear avenue.

Gain More Versatility
with One Pair of Lenses.

One of the greatest advantages transition eyeglass lenses have always provided is that they allow one pair of glasses to be more versatile. Instead of constantly having to switch between dress glasses and prescription sunglasses, you can use the same pair whether you are indoors or outdoors.

Many people find that this convenience alone makes the purchase of Transitions® well worth it.
