My New Transition Brand Lenses

Posted by LarumD on

My last Blog was about Drivewear and I want to talk more about the advantages of a lens that works for us. I recently acquired my first pair of eyeglasses with Transition Brand lenses. I just so happen found a very attractive frame that I wanted to become my 2nd pair, for outfit changes. I was choosing my usual lens options and upgrades when suddenly my lab customer service representative Ellie encouraged me to consider the Transition clear to gray lenses. This means the lenses will be clear and in the presence of Ultraviolet rays then they will darken to gray. I thought; okay, this will be my backup pair if I do not like them. I have sold many a Photochromic lens to customers and discussed the features and benefits as you all know. I try to be the Johnnie Appleseed of light adjusting lenses. Transitions offer comfort from eyestrain, convenience and protection. Transitions lenses react to the changing intensity of natural light. Our eyes work all day trying to adjust and adapt to this changing light. This lens allows just enough light through the lenses to reach the eyes. This actually reduces glare and enhances contrast. They block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, decreasing the risk of sun damage. I inform customers that the Transition lens does not get as dark as a category 4 polarized lens but offers great protection on sunny days. They are stealthy too. The transition is so gradual and natural that you don’t notice it. Due to the protection from the windshield some transition lenses do not react while you are in the car. She convinced me. I trust her. I got them. I love them.As soon as I went outside they started to darken. Its winter and they still get dark in this Chicagoland gloom we call a season. My backup pair was automatically upgraded to my primary pair. I get so many compliments as well. I am grateful for Ellie, she is my friend.
