Transitions® Color Changing Eyeglass Lenses

At Northwest Indiana Eye & Laser Center more and more patients ask us about color changing eyeglass lenses from Transitions®. Transitions® Lenses for eyeglasses use advanced technology to give you the benefits of clear lenses indoors and at night, plus distinct advantages of sunglasses outdoors - all in the convenience of one lens. Transitions® Lenses are clear indoors and at night but automatically adjust their level of tint to changing light conditions outdoors. They provide visual comfort and quality at any and every moment, helping you to see better today. This is a convenient and comfortable way to overcome the limitations of regular clear lenses which can allow the glare of the sun to cause you to squint and strain your eyes and make it difficult to see objects clearly in bright light.

In addition, Transitions® Lenses work to protect you just like sun block protects your skin. Transitions® Lenses help preserve the health and wellness of your eyes by blocking 100% of harmful UV rays. Transitions® Lenses use special photochromic dyes which are activated when exposed to Ultraviolet or UV light. The activation of these dyes causes them to darken and to reversibly "tint" the lens. When exposure to the UV light diminishes, the lenses fade back to clear. As outdoor light conditions change, the level of darkness adjusts, creating just the right level of tint and allowing just the right amount of light to enter the eyes at any given time. This action allows Transitions® Lenses to help protect your eyes from the light you can see - reducing glare, diminishing eye strain and fatigue and enabling you to distinguish contrast more easily. It's important to note that no matter how light or dark your Transitions® Lenses are, they are always blocking 100% of eye-damaging UVA and UVB rays. In other words, Transitions® Lenses provide automatic protection from UV rays in any environment, continually protecting your eyes from the light you can't see while you enjoy comfort and vision quality in the light that you can see. Most of our patients with Transitions® Lenses tell us that the adjustment happens so quickly and smoothly, they are unaware of it!
