What are Transition Lenses?

How do transition glasses work? Transition lenses, also known as photochromic lenses, are a type of lens that darkens in the sunlight and lightens in softer light or the dark. These kinds of lenses have been around for almost a decade and now they are trending more than ever. Transition lenses offer the convenience of sunglasses without having to wear them over your prescription glasses or having to continuously switch between the two types of eyewear. Transition lens technology has improved substantially in the past decade and this glasses transition temperature has decreased considerably making this type of eyewear suitable for every season. In the past, most of the transition lenses were made of glass and came only in grey. Nowadays, you can find transition lenses in a rainbow of lens colours as well as in a wide range of high-quality materials. Transition photochromic lenses are also effective against blue light and can be used as a substitute for blue light blocking glasses
