5 great reasons to invest in light intelligent lenses

15 May 2023

Light intelligent lenses, also known as photochromic lenses, seamlessly respond to changing light conditions. They transform from fully clear glasses indoors and within minutes, become a pair of sunglasses when exposed to UV rays. In this blog post, you will discover all the main benefits of investing in light intelligent lenses.

We have four types of light intelligent lenses to choose from, including Transitions® lenses. They are suited to various different purposes. Depending on your own personal requirements, there is a type of photochromic lens to suit your needs.

Effortless style all day long!

Light intelligent lenses are incredibly convenient. Rather than having to remember to bring both your prescription glasses and sunglasses out with you, you’ll have the best of both worlds in just one single pair. You can move indoors and outdoors freely. This takes the hassle out of remembering to change your eyewear and also means you won’t have to strain your eyes to see in bright sunlight, especially at times when you think the sun doesn’t seem very strong. Light intelligent lenses will provide the right amount of protection without you having to worry.

Save money with light adaptive lenses

In the same way as above, only having to purchase one pair of eyewear is extremely cost-effective. The ability of light intelligent lenses to adapt to changing light conditions means you won’t have to purchase a separate piece of eyewear. You’ll have prescription glasses and sunglasses in one! Stick to your budget and save with this reliable solution.

UV and blue light protection

Our light intelligent lenses are designed to block 100% of UVA and UVB rays when exposed to bright sunlight. Also, all Transitions® lenses help safeguard you from damaging blue light sources that emit from digital devices, like computer screens and mobile phones. You’ll be continuously protected throughout the day whether you’re at work, travelling from place to place, or going for a stroll in the sunshine.

A wide range of colours and styles

You can choose from a huge variety of fashionable glasses brands and designs. Find a style to suit you! Light intelligent lenses will meet the prescription needs of a majority of people, including varifocal wearers and those that require any additional, hard-wearing lens packages. Plus, Transitions® Signature® GEN8™ comes in a choice of seven popular style colours so you can pick which one’s right for you!

Ideal for different purposes

Depending on your own personal needs, we have a selection of light intelligent lenses for you to choose from. Our most basic light adaptive lenses are ideal for general use, especially when you’re moving indoors and outdoors throughout the day.

Transitions® Signature® GEN8™ is most suited to you if you’re an individual that seeks the practicality of a pair of fully clear prescription glasses which function indoors and that can quickly transform into sunglasses when you’re outside. Also. with a wide variety of style colours to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

Meanwhile, Transitions® XTRActive® lenses are perfect for most light-sensitive people and function well as a reliable everyday pair. These lenses change with the light, whether you’re outdoors or indoors, plus they can also react behind the windscreen of your car and are safe to drive at night with.

However, if you’re someone who drives on a frequent basis and needs to be safe on the road, then your best option is Transitions® Drivewear®. These advanced lenses are always tinted and are an olive colour by default. The colour varies according to light intensity. They minimise reflective glare in all conditions and prevent impaired vision by combining light intelligent technology with polarisation. Transitions® Drivewear® lenses react behind car windscreens but are not suited to night-time driving or use indoors.

As you can see, there are so many good reasons to invest in sophisticated light intelligent lenses. Stick to your budget and wear these practical lenses whenever you go without the trouble of carrying extra sunglasses.
