What are Transition lenses?

Transition Lenses are adaptive lenses that change from clear to dark providing the wearer with continual comfort indoors and outdoors.  There are several versions of Transitions we will explain below.  If you have further questions – please don’t hesitate to stop by [email protected] or use our interactive feedback form on the webpage to contact us.

1) Transition Lenses

Designed to quickly adapt from clear indoors to fully dark in the brightest sun, offering a distinct advantage over clear lenses. But Transitions lenses aren’t just about clear and dark, they continuously adapt to changing light so they’re always exactly the shade you need them to be.

  • Fast fade back speed

  • Block 100% of UV rays

  • Designed to work with almost any prescription and frame Suitable for most any age including children

  • Available in Grey, Brown & Green (not all lenses are available in brown)

2) Transition Vantage Lenses

Transitions Vantage lenses are the first everyday lenses that are virtually clear indoors and polarise as they darken. You’ll see colour contrast become richer and glare reduced even in the brightest sunlight. It’s called variable polarisation and you can only get it in Transitions Vantage lenses.

  • The only everyday lenses with variable polarisation
  • Glass and water look more transparent outdoors

·       Block 100% of UV rays

·       Designed to work with most prescriptions and frames

 Having been involved in the initial Australian trials – I experienced this first hand.  Although my Prescription Maui Jims Sunglasses are never too far away, Vantage Lenses provided seamless comfort in all sorts of lighting conditions.  In my experience – this is the MOST versatile lenses I have worn indoors or outdoors.

3) Transition Xtractive Lenses

All day Transitions XTRActive lenses adapt to help protect your eyes from fatigue and strain caused by UV light and bright glare outdoors, and even activate behind the windscreen.  Indoors they have a comfortable hint of tint to shield your eyes from strain caused by harsh indoor light.

  • Activation behind the windscreen of a car

  • Comfortable hint of tint indoors to shield the eyes from harsh indoor light

  • Our darkest lens outdoors, even in the hottest temperatures

  • Block 100% of UV rays

  • Designed to work with most prescriptions and frames
