Lenses To Dye For


My new pair of glasses fitted with the much talked about Transitions VI lenses.

Difference is that these lenses changes from a clear lens to a dark sunglasses kinda tint when it comes into contact with UV Rays.

These Transitions lenses contain patented photochromic dyes which cause the lens to activate - or darken - when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays from sunlight. When the UV light diminishes, the lenses fade back to clear. As outdoor light conditions change, the level of darkness adjusts, creating just the right level of tint and allowing just the right amount of light to enter the eyes at any given time.

Lenses darken in less than 10 seconds when exposed to the sun which offers UV 400 protection

In short, they quickly darken when I'm outdoors. Step back inside and they quickly fade back to clear.

That's not all, these are also Crizal lenses by Essilor which wouldn't smudge, scratch, nor glare due to it's 2 sided Diamond-like zirconium oxide lens which are scratch resistant, anti-reflective and with hydrophobic technologies which repels water, dirt, dust, and even oil.

Cool huh?

Though it cost me more than 3 times of what my usual spectacles does, it's definitely worth it.
