What Are Transition Lenses?
Transition lenses, also known as photochromic lenses, are eyeglass lenses that are clear indoors and automatically darken in sunlight. They are a type of variable tint lens. Most transition lenses contain silver halide crystals that react to ultraviolet (UV) light, causing the lenses to change color. The darkness of the tint is directly proportional to the amount of UV light present. In other words, the more UV light exposure, the darker the lenses will become.
Transition lenses were first introduced in the 1960s and have undergone several improvements. Today, transition lenses are available in various colors, including brown, gray, and even green styles, to suit your needs.
