Transition VI and Transitions XTRActive Lenses are designed to be worn indoors and darken outdoors. A transition lens helps to regulate the light reaching your eyes, helping you squint less and reducing both fatigue and eye strain. A transition lens will protect eyes by blocking 100 percent of ultraviolet light. An anti-reflective coating can be applied to a transition lens to further enhance the wearer’s experience by improving indoor clarity, reducing distracting glare and enhancing nighttime driving.
The Transition VI lens is available in a wide variety of lens materials and most lens designs in either a gray or brown tint. The Transition VI lens is virtually clear indoors. The Transition VI lens doesn’t darken in the car.
Transition XTRActive lenses activate using both ultraviolet and visible light. The lenses have a slight tint indoors and at night. Since the lens activates with visible light it will change slightly behind the windshield of a car. It doesn’t replace sunglasses but it does give another option for someone who wants a darker lens. At this time, the lens is only available in gray in some materials.
