Transitions Lenses- Which one do I choose?

   With the multitude of options Transitions lenses offers, it can be very difficult to determine which you might like best or be the best fit for you. This article will break down the differences between all the most popular transitions choices we offer at


 The most widely used Transitions lens is the  Chromea Transitions Signature 7 lens. This is their standard option that is their newest version of Transitions technology.  This lens is completely clear indoors and when you go outdoors and into the UV light rays from the sun they turn to a gray or brown sunglass or medium shade depending on the brightness of the light. This type of Transition technology is available in just about every type of progressive, single vision and bifocal lens we offer at Simply Eyeglasses. There is one drawback to this choice and that is it does not transition behind the windshield of a car due to the UV filters installed in most modern car windshields, which block the UV rays needed to change the lenses to a darker hue.

There are two types of Transitions that do react behind the windshield of a car. Xtra-Active transitions lenses change very rapidly in varying lights. Faster than any other transitions they are made for an active customer who needs a very quick changing lens. When indoors they have a slight tint of either brown, gray or gray-green-perfect for indoor use. When outdoors they change quickly to a darker shade but behind the windshield of a car they are not able to fully transition. If you are looking for a transition lens that changes fully behind the windshield of a car than look no further than Transitions Vantage. The newest and fastest growing in popularity- the Transitions Vantage lens does actually change fully behind the windshield of a car. Also, as the Vantage lens darkens it becomes a gray polarized sunglass when fully transitioned giving you the ultimate in protection against glare.

Any lens option you choose with Simply Eyeglasses is going to be the finest choice- but with choosing a Transitions lens you can say goodbye to switching from eyeglass to sunglass frequently, harmful UV rays/glare/blue light and be the utmost in lens technology.circle_259x259_everdaybrochure

    I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours today, but I by no means
    found any interesting article like yours. It’s beautiful value enough for
    me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content material as
    you probably did, the internet might be a lot more helpful than ever before.
