XTRActive Polarized: the only and best ever polarized photochromic lenses.

Dynamic polarized photochromic lens

If you ever encounter bright sunlight, or glare reflected off surfaces like roads or water, Transitions® XTRActive® Polarized lenses are uniquely designed for you.

Combining the benefits of light intelligent lenses and dynamic polarisation Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses deliver sharper vision, more vivid colours and a larger field of view outdoors.

New Dimension of Vision Experience

These lenses help to reduce glare from the sun, so you have sharper vision and can see through reflective surfaces such as a window or water.

SHARPER
VISION

Reduce reflective glare with Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses.8
Outdoors smooth, shiny surfaces like snow, sand, car windows, concrete, metal and buildings can reflect glare into your eyes and lenses.
By reducing this reflected glare, Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses help improve visibility.

VIVID
COLOURS

See more colours with Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses.8
Glare distorts the true colour of objects and makes them hard to distinguish.
Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses make the world more colourful, so you can see deep blue skies, crystal clear water and the colours of a landscape more clearly.

Available in grey lenses

A UNIQUE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

Building on years of research and development in photochromics and polarisation technology, Transitions Optical has engineered world’s only photochromic dynamic polarised lens1, offering a high definition lens like no other.

Frequently Asked

The key difference is that polarised lenses are designed specifically to block the glare from reflected light, while non-polarised lenses only block intense light.

Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses not only reduce reflections but also provide a shaper vision, vivid colours and larger view.

Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses are clear indoors, become extra dark and polarised outdoors. They are designed for those who need extra protection in high-glare situations. Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses reduce glare providing you with sharper vision, a larger view and vivid colours. The optimal solution for a superior vision experience.8

Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses are polarised outdoors in the sun while Transitions XTRActive new generation lenses are darker but do not polarise outdoors.

Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses filter at least 34% of blue light indoors and up to 90% of blue light outdoors.6

Yes absolutely, Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses darken in the car so that they reduce the glare while driving. Since the dichroïc dyes for polarisation activate from UV light, which is blocked by car windscreens, Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses do not polarise in the car. Transitions Drivewear sun lenses are the only polarised sun lenses that adapt to light behind the wheel and outdoors, helping remove glare off the road and car bonnet for a picture-perfect drive. Transitions Drivewear lenses have a fixed polarisation and Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses have a dynamic polarisation.


  • Compared to clear to dark photochromic lenses.

  • Based on tests across materials on grey lenses @ 23°C, using ISO 12312-1 standard.

  • Based on tests on polycarbonate grey lenses, up to 10% darker than the previous generation @ 23°C and up to 5% darker @ 35°C.

  • Based on tests across materials on grey lenses, achieving transmission below 45% @ 23°C behind a standard windscreen. The lens achieves a polarisation efficiency of 30% behind the windscreen, which is not classified as being “polarised”.

  • Based on range of 380nm-460nm at 23°C among polycarbonate and 1.5 grey lenses in the clear to extra dark photochromic category. Transitions XTRActive Polarized block up to 34% of blue light indoors.

  • Based on tests across materials on grey lenses @ 23°C. Based on range of 380nm to 460nm.

  • Up to 2x faster to fade back. Based on tests on polycarbonate grey lenses compared to the previous generation, fading back to 65% transmission @ 23°C.
