The “magical” properties of transition lenses often raise a natural, healthy skepticism.
After all, they start out as perfectly crystal-clear prescription lenses inside or at night, but when exposed to the UV rays of the sun, darken to shade the eyes. This happens in a matter of moments and the lenses adjust to just the amount of sun present; a little bit results in a light tint while full, direct sunlight darkens them fully. When that light source is removed, they again return to a clear state. They do this over and over again, automatically, without wearing out.
But how well do they really work? What are their drawbacks, their weak points, their pros and cons? Transition lenses feature a number of obvious selling points but they aren’t for everyone, and the benefits may not be ideal for you. At Rx-Safety, we don’t only want to sell you your frames and glasses, we want to you to be completely satisfied with them.
