Transitions Optical Introduces Faster Photochromic Lenses

Transitions Optical, Inc. – the worldwide leader in photochromic eyeglass lenses that adjust automatically to different lighting conditions – announces they have introduced a new, faster-changing lens that becomes clear indoors in less than half the time it takes for the tint in previous photochromic lenses to fade.


The new lens – Transitions(R) V lenses with ESP(TM) – is available in lightweight, shatter-resistant polycarbonate and Trivex(R) lens materials and in high index plastic materials, including ultra-thin 1.67 high index plastic lenses offered by lens manufacturers Essilor, Sola and Seiko.


According to Transitions Optical:

  • Transitions V lenses with ESP fade back (become clear) indoors over twice as fast as the company’s previous product.
  • The new lenses are compatible with all major anti-reflective (AR) coatings for glare-free comfort day and night.


The company also says surveys of eyecare professionals and consumers indicate:

  • 8 out of 10 eyecare professionals would recommend Transitions V Lenses with ESP to their patients.
  • 83% of consumers prefer Transitions V Lenses with ESP to clear lenses.
