Visual comfort when driving

Standard photochromic lenses activate when exposed to UV. Modern windscreens block UV light. Transitions XTRActive lenses darken behind the windscreen of a car because of the unique technology they have, which responds to visible light, as well as UV, to protect your eyes from glare and sunlight while driving.

Light is essential for our vision and our overall well-being. Part of the light spectrum that enters our eyes can be a contributing factor of eye diseases such as cataracts and AMD(2). 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.
