LIFE IN THE
BEST LIGHT

At Transitions Optical, we help
people live richer, more vibrant
lives by enhancing their vision and
the way they perceive light.

THE CUTTING EDGE OF VISUAL ENHANCEMENT

Through continuous innovation, the Transitions family of product enhances vision by adjusting and adapting to changing light. Through our partnerships with optical industry leaders, we offer adaptive eyewear in the widest selection of designs and materials, including hundreds of lens combinations. Our lenses are the number-one recommended photochromic lenses worldwide. Every second, somewhere in the world, a spectacle wearer chooses to purchase Transitions adaptive lenses. We strive continuously to raise the wearers’ satisfaction to the highest level.


PIONEERS IN LIGHT MANAGEMENT

We are pioneers in light management and home to many firsts. Since we were founded in 1990, we have expanded from a cramped office with one portable computer in the Tampa Bay area to an eyecare industry leader that is now home to more than 1,500 committed employees globally.

We were the first to successfully commercialize a plastic photochromic lens in 1990. Our 100 research and development professionals are continuously innovating: improving darkness, fade back speed, colour, responsiveness and indoor clarity… Their aim is to create a better experience to spectacle wearers. We have developed a product for anyone who wants more out of their spectacle lenses. And we are applying our technology to new areas such as sports and leisure through partnerships with brands like Nike, Oakley and Lazer. 


SUSTAINABILITY - OUR BUSINESS STRATEGY

Sustainability is part of our business strategy. We consider ourselves stewards of the planet’s resources, continuously reducing waste, improving water and energy consumption, and protecting our environment.

16% decrease in water usage on a per-lens basis by reusing wastewater and retooling lens cleaning equipment 1,330 acres of trees planted. This is the equivalent environmental benefit of our purchase of certified RECs and carbon offsets 8% decrease in electricity usage thanks to employee efforts, upgrades to energy efficient motors in production and building’s optimised energy management systems. 46% reduction in total electrical consumption at our facility in Tuam, Ireland versus three years ago



HEALTHY VISION FOR ALL

At Transitions Optical we are committed to improving the vision of our communities.  It’s why we continue to provide charitable support and disaster relief in the communities where we operate.
