TRANSITIONS® How do Transitions® Adaptive Lenses™ Work?

March 26, 2018

Transitions adaptive lenses are variable tint lenses which activate when exposed to Ultra Violet radiation (UV rays). Transitions adaptive lenses benefit from an exclusive patented Technology developed and constantly improved by Transitions Optical. When the UV light  diminishes, Transitions adaptive lenses fade back to clear. Transitions lenses help reduce glare as they automatically adapt to outdoor light Intensity, improving contrast and reducing eye fatigue.
By working hand in hand with Transitions Optical, Shamir offers premium photochromic progressive & single vision lenses with high performance. The collaboration between Shamir and Transitions Optical merges cutting-edge lens designs with state-of-the art photochromic technology. This combination provides patients with high added value lenses offering optimum indoor/outdoor comfort.
