The Hype of Transition Lenses
Posted by Everything Sunglasses 1 Comments
If you’re an eyeglass or sunglass wearer you’ve probably heard of transition lenses; otherwise known as photochromic lenses. These types of lenses are a pretty big deal because they actually adapt to changes in the amount of UV lighting that they’re exposed to. They are very useful to people who walk in and out of doors often or just don’t feel like putting on and taking off sunglasses every time their environment changes.
The lenses work by getting dark or becoming light when the UV rays they’re exposed to change levels. The change in levels are detected by photochromic dyes. The dyes actually tint the levels to change from sunglasses to clear lenses. Transition lenses not only reduce glare but they actually block all UVA and UVB rays.
When buying transition sunglasses it’s important to realize that there’s many different types available for purchase. A consumer can buy prescription lenses which function as prescription lenses as well as transition lenses. Other types of transition lenses provide better shading when driving. These lenses detect the UV light at a more precise level because they need to account for the UV tint of the window. These are just a couple of the many different types of photochromic lenses available on the market, but it’s important to talk to your eye care professional to see what type is right for you.
