TRANSITIONS DRIVEWEAR – TWO POWERFUL TECHNOLOGIES UNITED

Transitions Drivewear sun lenses combine two of the most advanced technologies found in the eyeglass industry today: Transitions® photochromic technology and NuPolar® polarisation technology. 


THE POWER OF POLARISATION

The polarisation technology of Transitions Drivewear represents a significant breakthrough in the use of polarisation. Typically, efficient polarisation only occurs when the lenses are very dark. Transitions Drivewear lenses utilize a high efficiency polariser that provides excellent polarising properties never found before in such a high contrast, light colour meaning that wearers can experience the visual benefits of polarisation even when the lenses are not extremely dark. This was achieved only by pushing polarised manufacturing technologies to new levels of exceptional performance and light transmittance. Transitions Drivewear lenses are polarised at all times and in all conditions. 


IN LOW LIGHT AND OVERCAST CONDITIONS

Transitions Drivewear lenses change from a shade of green/yellow, to a copper shade, to a dark reddish-brown colour depending on the amount of light.

In low light and overcast conditions Transitions Drivewear lenses are a green/yellow colour to provide high contrast and maximize useful light information reaching the eye. 


BEHIND THE WINDSCREEN

Most photochromic lenses react to UV light, however car windscreens block nearly 100% of UV light.  One of the unique and special attributes of Transitions Drivewear lenses is that they darken behind the windscreen of a car because they have the ability to react to visible light as well as UV light.

When exposed to visible light, the lens changes to a copper colour, which many drivers find is the most comfortable colour for driving.  This is not surprising, as the Transitions Drivewear lens colour was designed to both remove excess light and provide good traffic signal recognition, highlighting the reds and greens. The copper colour can also provide improved depth perception.


IN BRIGHT LIGHT AND OUTSIDE CONDITIONS

Outdoors, Transitions Drivewear lenses are activated by both UV and visible light and change to a dark reddish-brown colour.  This colour was designed for superior filtration of excess light and to provide increased protection from bright light.  The brown colour of the lens enables excellent colour recognition with a special emphasis on highlighting greens.  Because green is the most common colour in the natural landscape, these lenses provide a great visual experience.


AT NIGHT

Transitions Drivewear lenses are designed for daylight and daytime driving conditions just like regular sunglasses and should not to be worn at night.  

Because Transitions Drivewear lenses are sun lenses, the lenses never become completely clear. In low light conditions they will be a green/yellow colour that provides high contrast, and maximize useful light information reaching the eye.
