It is so important to wear the correct lenses when behind the wheel, here’s why.
We always recommend speaking with your eye care provider If you are noticing your vision becoming blurred or distorted when driving. For the safety of other road users and yourself.

Transitions technology blocks 100% UVA and UVB light rays and selectively filters and harmful Blue-Violet light indoors from modern light sources, and outdoors from the sun. Your new Transitions lenses will help contribute to your overall eye health.
