One aspect of wearing glasses that people are not always fond of is having to switch them out for a pair of sunglasses throughout the day. Instead of needing two pairs of glasses, consider Transitions® Lenses. Transitions® Lenses, also known as photochromic lenses have the ability to brighten or darken when in contact with various levels of light. Transitions® Lenses darken when exposed to sunlight and brighten back up when the sunlight dies down.

While people will remember to wear sunscreen when in the sun, they may not realize that their eyes need just as much protection. Transitions® Lenses can protect the eyes while also helping people to drive without the sun blinding them. Along with this benefit, Transitions® Lenses also provide benefits such as:

  • Being equally great for indoor and outdoor use
  • Offering continuous protection from the sun's ultraviolet rays
  • Patients are less likely to lose them since it eliminates the need to keep two pairs of glasses
  • Saving money
  • Being available in a wide variety of styles and prescriptions

A person who wears traditional prescription glasses would have to sacrifice clear vision for protection from sunlight when they put their sunglasses on. Along with that, people can purchase Transitions® Lenses instead of investing in prescription sunglasses along with a pair of prescription eyeglasses. Damaging or losing either can become a costly problem.

Selecting Transitions® Lenses

Any store-bought or online products that claim to have Transitions® Lenses are not nearly as effective as professional lenses from our practice. We will customize the lenses to the patient's needs. However, there are various factors to consider when buying Transitions® Lenses for prescription glasses.

Varying speed of changing brightness levels

The speed at which different brands of Transitions® Lenses change color varies. We will discuss the characteristic of each brand with the patient to help them decide which ones they want.

Cold environments alter the speed

All brands of Transitions® Lenses tend to take longer to change in cold weather. This can impact the decision for some people while others do not mind.

Some Transitions® Lenses may not work well in cars

The glass on windows and windshields of cars come equipped with UV protection. This protection can prevent the Transitions® Lenses from working properly. The glass on the car blocks out the UV rays, but the bright sunlight still makes it into the wearer's eyes.

Proper care is the same as regular glasses

Since the Transitions® Lenses are on the original glasses the patient wears, they do not typically require extra care. The patient merely has to keep them clean and properly store them when not in use.

Transitions® Lenses are no longer a luxury that cost an arm and a leg. It is a sensible solution for anyone who needs prescription eyewear and is also sensitive to sunlight. These lenses do not just enhance one's vision, they help to prevent it from getting worse by blocking harmful UV rays.
