Transitions Healthy Sight Working For You


Today's eyewear can do more than correct vision. Newer lens technologies – such as photochromics, anti-reflective coatings and progressive lenses – can enhance everyday quality of vision and protect long-term eye health.

For example, photochromic lenses, like Transitions® lenses, are an ideal option for everyday wear. They automatically adapt to changing light, darkening outdoors in proportion to the amount of sunlight. This means just the right amount of light reaches your eyes so you’ll see your best whether it’s sunny, cloudy or in between. Since your eyes are automatically protected from glare, which can cause eyestrain and fatigue – you will see more clearly and comfortably. Transitions lenses also block 100 percent of damaging UVA and UVB rays. This is important because long-term eye exposure to UV can lead to sight-stealing eye diseases like cataract.



Reflections off of objects (like a computer screen) or eyeglass lenses themselves can be distracting, reducing vision and causing eye fatigue.

Photochromic lenses can be paired with anti-reflective (AR) coatings, which offer even more benefits. For instance, AR coatings virtually eliminate reflections on your lenses. This makes them look nicer, and lets others see your eyes and not the lenses. The coating also helps reduce glare. This is important for night driving, when glare from headlights often becomes a serious distraction. AR coatings also help reduce reflections off the back of your eyeglasses caused by artificial lighting indoors, making it easier for you to view your computer screen.

Adjusted lighting, the correct viewing angle, AR coatings and computer glasses can all help to make your vision at your computer crisper and more comfortable.


Today's vision wear options also include a number of impact-resistant lens materials, like Trivex® material or polycarbonate, which minimize the chance of trauma to the eye.
