Simply put, Transitions lenses adapt. They adjust from clear indoors to dark outdoors. But it’s not just about light or dark; it’s about everything in between. No matter where you are, or what situation you’re in, Transitions Adaptive Lenses to the perfect shade so you see with just the right amount of light.

Transitions adaptive lenses are the #1 eyecare professional-recommended photochromic lenses worldwide. Transitions® lenses are equipped with patented, photochromic dyes that enable the lenses to rapidly activate, or darken, when they are exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet light. The greater the intensity of UV rays, the darker the lenses become. When UV light is no longer present, including indoors or at night, the lenses fade back to their original state.

To meet the diverse needs of consumers, we offer different lens options including a family of everyday Transitions eyewear lenses which are lenses that can be worn indoors and outdoors all day long: Transitions adaptive lenses, Transitions® XTRActive™ lenses, and Transitions® Vantage™ lenses. Drivewear lenses are ideal for those want adaptive lenses that will work behind a car windshield.
