Transitions® Lenses & Eyeglasses
Looking for a new pair of eyeglasses? Contact your neighborhood Pearle Vision EyeCare Center to ask about photochromic lenses. Transitions lenses are glasses that are clear indoors and automatically darken when exposed to sunlight. These types of lenses can offer visual comfort for light sensitive people when staring at a digital screen and when spending time outside. Learn more about Transitions lenses below and how they can benefit you.
What Are Transitions Lenses?
Transitions lenses are eyeglasses that are designed to be clear when used indoors and automatically darken in brighter conditions. They are also referred to as light-adaptive lenses and variable tint lenses.
How Do Transitions Lenses Work?
When photochromic lenses are exposed to UV light, trillions of photochromic molecules in the lens begin to change structure. This reaction is what causes the lenses to darken. All lenses that adapt to light use photochromic molecules; the superiority of Transitions®️ brand technology lies in our exclusive, patented formulas. Each formula is integrated into the surface of the lens. These molecules constantly and smoothly recalibrate so the optimal amount of light reaches your eyes whether you’re in bright sunlight, under cloud cover or indoors.
Benefits of Transitions Lenses
There are many benefits to having Transitions lenses as your everyday pair, including:
- Change from clear to dark when outdoors, and back to clear when you are inside

- * “Harmful blue light” is calculated between 380nm and 460nm.
