If you have glasses, you’ve probably heard about Transitions® lenses. They are popular with many patients because they darken in sunlight, then turn clear again when the brightness dims. Eye doctors can verify they not only work better than ever but provide many benefits. Explore their biggest advantages in the following list.
The Biggest Advantages of Choosing Transitions® Glasses
1. Seamless Adaptation to Different Environments
Nearly everyone travels inside and outside multiple times each day. Transitions® lenses act as regular glasses and sunglasses, so you can clearly see in your home and enjoy your favorite outdoor activities without switching your frames. Adjustment is automatic from clear to dark. This signature feature allows you to save money since you won’t have to buy separate prescription sunglasses.
2. Blockage of Blue Light
Whether you work on a computer screen or spend hours on your smartphone, a daily dependence on technology means your eyes are overexposed to harmful blue light. Transitions® help to block blue light, so you decrease digital eye fatigue. They will also help avoid the deterioration of your vision over time.
3. Effective Prevention of Eye Strain
Most people squint when they’re in sunlight or are exposed to glare from bright snow. This automatic eye response leads to muscle strain, which can cause watery eyes, itching, and headaches. Since your lenses will darken in ultraviolet light, you will avoid more eye strain than with standard lenses.
4. Wide Selection of Frames
Your lenses are one of the most unique products on the market. However, you’ll still be able to choose the frames that best fit your face and personality. Whether you like thick wayfarers or thin, light shapes, they’ll pair well with the dark-to-light technology.
5. Various Lens Options
While traditional Transitions® are effective in almost any environment, you may prefer one of their additional lens choices. Patients who spend a lot of time in the car can select the Drivewear® option that helps to remove glare from the car hood and road. Athletes enjoy NIKE® MAX with speed tint and sports performance engineering, while ESS Crossbow® offers a ballistic eyepiece.
