Are Transitions® Glasses Right For You

Transitions® has been helping people to experience exceptional visual clarity from light to dark for more than 20 years. As Spring emerges, COVID restrictions lift and the days get longer, people are enjoying the outdoors once again which is where Transitions® light intelligent glasses can play a role to help you do this in comfort.

As the sun moves across the sky throughout the day, we experience different light conditions. We also experience different light conditions as we move indoors to outdoors and during activities like driving.

Specs for Vets can help you get Transitions® glasses online with our great selection of Transitions® Signature GEN8 and Transitions® XtraActive® lens options designed to fit your lifestyle and light conditions.

What Are Transitions® Glasses?

Transitions® light intelligent glasses adjust quickly so your eyes can adapt to bright light with ease, without having to change your glasses to sunglasses. Using advanced photochromic lens technology, Transitions® lenses provide 100% UV protection in any light condition, darkening when outdoors and return to clear with a super-fast fade back speed when indoors.

Transitions® have been rated the best photochromic sunglasses by wearers who have made the switch to a better light protection experience.

What’s The Right Transitions® Lens for Me?

Deciding which Transitions® lens can provide you with the best protection is easy. Transitions® offers several options designed to adapt to your lifestyle and activity level.
