To combat this conundrum, many people opt for photochromic lenses, also known as Transitional Lenses. The lenses adjust to changes in light to optimize eyesight. When you’re exposed to ultraviolet light, the lenses darken to resemble sunglasses. When you return indoors and at night, the lenses revert back to their original clear state. Because the lenses only darken in response to the short wave lengths in sunlight, you don’t have to worry about artificial indoor light triggering the darkening effect .
Since the lenses automatically adapt to light conditions, they reduce eye strain and fatigue indoors and squinting in sunlight. The rapidly changing lenses can also lessen glare by regulating the amount of natural light you are exposed to. The degree of darkening depends upon the amount of light. You’ll never be stuck with uncomfortable shades that let too much or too little light in.
Transitional Lenses darken within a mere 30 seconds and turn clear again just as fast. They maintain about 5-percent residual tint when indoors.
Light sensitivity is reduced, because the lenses protect the eye from harmful UV rays. Reducing exposure to UV rays lowers the risk of cataracts and other age-related eye issues. The level of protection adjusts itself depending on the needs of your eyes.
This lens is available in brown and gray variable tints to suit your personal style.
They’re also available in most lightweight lens materials and can apply to all forms of lenses, such as single, bifocal, and progressive lenses.
The lenses can save you money as you don’t need to buy separate prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses.
Your vision will be crisper and colors will appear more vivid in sunlight.
