While we offer a clear lens choice which can be perfect when there are no issues with lighting conditions, you’ll want to almost always go for one that blocks out blue wavelengths. These blue waves come from looking at digital screens too much, and having the blocker will allow for reduced eye strain and fatigue.

Transition lenses

We offer these in many core options. First, transition gray lenses are the perfect option for tint safety glasses, protecting your eyes against UV radiation and making it easier to see when it’s bright. Next, you can consider transition brown lenses when you want clarity with contrasting colors, such as being on the golf course. Additionaly, our Transitions XTRActive Gray, Transitions XTRActive Brown, and Transition Xtractive Polarized lenses provide dynamic adaptability, ensuring your eyewear effortlessly adjusts to varying light conditions.
