TRANSITIONS® VANTAGE™ LENSES - A Photochromic POLARIZED variable lens
|Hello world, goodbye glare. Thanks to breakthrough technology, new Transitions Vantage lenses don't just adapt to changing light, they also polarize as they darken. Outdoors, the polarization adjusts to match the level of outdoor glare, which can vary as the day progresses and conditions change. That means you see life in the best light with less glare for better clarity and color.||The only everyday lenses with variable polarization
Polarization adjusts to match the level of outdoor glare
Block 100% of UVA & UVB rays
Designed to work with most prescriptions and frames
There are clear lenses that darken. There are sunglasses that are polarized. But never before have everyday eyeglass lenses been able to both darken and polarize in bright, outdoor light. Transitions Vantage lenses are everyday adaptive lenses with the added benefits of new Trans-Polarizing™ process-polarization that increases as the lenses get darker in outdoor light. That means that as Transitions Vantage lenses get darker, vision becomes crisper, sharper and more vivid, while glare is reduced even in bright sunlight.
VARIABILITY BRINGS THE BENEFITS OF POLARIZATION TO EVERYDAY SITUATIONS
Did you know that bright sunlight can cause glare when light scatters off reflective surfaces, which causes discomfort and dull, washed-out images? Polarization filters this light, so you get better clarity.
In the past, polarization has been limited to sunglasses, which are popular with drivers and boaters for dealing with the harsh glare off the road or the water. However, glare isn't limited to extreme situations. It's also present in our everyday lives. Now you can get the benefits of polarization in an everyday lens. Transitions Vantage lenses are virtually clear indoors. Outdoors they increase polarization as they darken. This means that you can get crisper, sharper vision in the dappled light of a tree-lined sidewalk or the full glare of a city street.
IT TAKES A MASTERY OF MOLECULES
Until recently, polarization only existed as static film embedded in a lens. It was tinted and fixed, and thus unable to adapt to changing light and become clear. Transitions Optical has revolutionized the science by creating lenses in which molecules not only darken under the influence of UV light but also align at a proper angle in the lens so that they become polarized. In other words, new Transitions Vantage lenses help control glare and light scatter by both darkening and increasing their polarization in UV light.
Conventional photochromic molecules darken in random patterns, and that works perfectly to create the adaptation from light to dark. In order to create the polarization effect, Transitions Vantage lenses have photochromic molecules that darken and align. This allows them to create a pattern of horizontal lines with the power to cut through intense glare.
