f you have grown tired of
prescription eyeglasses and
your sunglasses whenever you
go from inside to outdoor and
back again, it is time that you
took a look at “photochromatic
lenses.” Otherwise known as
“transition” lenses, these special
lenses lighten and darken in
response to exposure to light.
Once only available in glass
and a grey color, photochromic
lenses have advanced to the
point where they are available in
a variety of materials (including
plastic) and colors. Not only
do photochromatic lenses offer
convenience, but they also
give continuous protection from
ultraviolet (UV) light. They also
provide the savings that comes
with the purchase of one pair of
glasses rather than two.



ransitions lenses are the
most convenient way for
you to protect your eyes from
the light you can see and the
light you can’t. All while helping
to improve the quality of your
vision and the long-term health
and well-being of your eyes.
