Lens Coatings + Treatments

Transitions

How they work:

UV light activates the lens technology to transform the lenses from clear to dark, and a range of tint in-between. The lenses are fully clear indoors and at night, and when UV activated block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. If you spend a lot of time driving, you may want to keep a pair of sunglasses in the car. Car wind-shields have UV protection and block the UV needed to activate the Transitions® lenses we offer in the car.

Protection for all ages

According to the Vision Council, children “receive more annual sun exposure than adults because many of their activities are outdoor-based... this exposure to sunlight also increases children's exposure to damaging UV light.” As children are constantly moving between indoor and outdoor settings, it is never too early to start protecting their eyes from harmful UV rays.

Eyewear for any style

With their adaptability into any pair of glasses frames, Transitions® lenses will have you covered for any time of day. Transitions® lenses can be added to any pair of glasses, so select any designer frame, enter your prescription and, when selecting the lens type, choose Transitions®.

 

Treatments / Coatings

Scratch Resistant

Glasses naturally take on a lot of wear and tear, and scratched lenses can affect your vision, leading to damaging eye strain. A Scratch Resistant coating will extend the life of your lenses and help to ensure clearer vision.

UV Protective

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation not only damages the skin but also the structure of the eye. This coating provides 100% Ultraviolet (UV) protection that is essential in protecting the eye. For added protection from the sun you may be interested in Transitions®or prescription sunglasses lenses.

Anti-Reflective

Back-glare, which occurs when light bounces in the back of the lens and into the eyes, can be both distracting and damaging to the eye, especially as we now spend an increasing amount of time with digital devices, such as computers, tablets, and televisions. An Anti-Reflective coating reduces eye strain by eliminating ambient glare from car headlights, computers, digital devices and televisions.

Blue Light Protection

Blue Light Protection Lenses offer a protective shield that reduces glare and filters blue light from digital screens and artificial lights.

The Problem with Artificial Light

Most of us are now continuously connected to our digital technologies. This can cause headaches, dry eyes, blurred vision and eye strain. The high-energy visible (HEV) artificial blue light emitted by digital device and fluorescent lighting is known today to have a negative impact on the retinal cells. Artificial light can also decrease contrast that can lead to eye strain.

"Nearly 70% of American adults experience some form of digital eye strain due to prolonged use of electronic devices."         — THE VISION COUNCIL

How they work:

Blue Light Protection Lenses use a special coating to reflect a portion of the blue light emitted by digital devices and artificial light. This coating also incorporates scratch resistant and anti-glare benefits, giving you clearer vision while using digital devices.

A blue sheen and a minimal yellow hue on the lens are the proof of the lenses actively filtering part of the blue light.

Although these specialized lenses are similar to clear lenses, and can be worn indoors and outside, they have an additional benefit for activities related to digital screen usage.
