Are you tired of constantly switching between your prescription eyeglasses and shades? Are you looking for an all-in-one solution to enhance your eyesight and protect your eyes from the sun? With photochromic lenses the discomfort of carrying two pairs of glasses is a thing of the past. Photochromic lenses are special optical lenses that react to bright sunlight, particularly ultraviolet radiation, automatically darkening and slowly fading back in lower intensity light. The more UV rays reach photochromic lenses, the darker they become providing sufficient amount of shade for your eyes in any light conditions. These lenses were made famous by a company named Transitions Optical, hence many people, even eye practitioners, mistakenly refer to photochromic lenses as “transition lenses” or simply “transitions”.

It is widely accepted to protect our skin from the sun especially at seaside, because harmful UV rays can burn our skin and in the long run can even cause more serious diseases such as skin cancer.

For instance, a car windshield blocks UV rays away, hence photochromic lenses will not darken while it might be very bright and sunny. Also when it’s extremely hot and sunny, photochromic eyeglasses may not tint as much as sunglasses.
