Zenni x Transitions® lenses
- BY Mori Ahi
Many of my patients ask about ways to protect their eyes from the sun and harmful blue light. One solution is adding Transitions to your next pair of Zennis. Transitions lenses block 100% of UV rays and help protect against sources of harmful blue light (including digital devices and the sun).
What are Transitions lenses?
Transitions lenses are the #1 eyecare professional-recommended photochromic lenses worldwide. Transitions lenses are activated by UV light; the greater the UV intensity, the darker the lenses become. When UV light is no longer present (i.e. indoors or at night), the lenses fade back to clear.
To meet the diverse needs of our customers, Zenni offers not only Transitions® Signature® Gen 8™ but also Transitions® XTRActive Polarized™ in both prescription and non-prescription lenses.
Which Transitions lenses are right for me?
Transitions Signature Gen 8 lenses are perfect for everyday use and all-day wear. These lenses activate to a category 3 darkness up to 30% faster than the previous generation of Transitions® Signature® lenses.*
Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses are uniquely designed to provide extra protection from reflective glare while also darkening in your car.
Both Transitions Signature Gen 8 and Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses block 100% UV light and filter harmful blue light.**
