Transition and Polarised Lens
Transition lenses (photochromic lenses) change effortlessly and automatically from perfectly clear lenses when indoors, to ideal sun protection when outdoors. Using a transition lenses couldn’t be simpler, but the technology behind them is anything but simple. A complex formula of photochromic molecules make light, dark and every shade in between possible. Transition lenses are designed to be worn all day long, outdoors and indoors. And you can get them in virtually every frame, style, size and prescription. They are also great for children. They don’t just make everything look great, they also reduce eye fatigue and strain while blocking 100% of UVA / UVB light.
Transition signature lenses do not work well behind glass as they react to UV light, most modern windows and windscreens will filter out the majority of UV light. With this in mind Transition Xtractive lenses and specialised Drive Wear Transitions will work behind glass and are ideal for driving.

Polarised lenses are popular with skiers, pilots and water sports enthusiasts; however these special lenses are also an excellent option for virtually everyone. Polarised lenses eliminate light reflections and mirror images as the sun’s rays hit reflective surfaces such as a wet road, water or metal surfaces. Such conditions cause our eyes to constantly adjust to changing light conditions and thus cause eye fatigue. Wearing polarised lenses protects us from such conditions and offers more relaxed clearer vision.
Natural light is unpolarised light that vibrates in every direction. However, when light hits a smooth surface as discussed it reflects and becomes polarised. The reflection creates an unpleasant blinding effect we refer to as glare. Polarised lenses filter light reflected vertically thus blocking the polarised light. As a result hazardous reflections from water surfaces and wet streets are almost completely eliminated and also offer 100% UV protection. Polarised lenses are therefore safer, more comfortable and offer clearer more improved contrast and fantastically vibrant colours.
