glare. Thanks to breakthrough technology, new Transitions
Vantage lenses don't just adapt to changing light, they also
polarize as they darken. Outdoors, the polarization adjusts to
match the level of outdoor glare, which can vary as the day
progresses and conditions change. That means you see life in the
best light with less glare for better clarity and color.

|There are clear lenses that darken. There
are sunglasses that are polarized. But never before have everyday
eyeglass lenses been able to both darken and polarize in bright, outdoor
light. Transitions Vantage lenses are everyday adaptive lenses with the
added benefits of new Trans-Polarizing™ process-polarization
that increases as the lenses get darker in outdoor light. That means
that as Transitions Vantage lenses get darker, vision becomes crisper,
sharper and more vivid, while glare is reduced even in bright sunlight.
VARIABILITY BRINGS THE BENEFITS OF POLARIZATION
TO EVERYDAY SITUATIONS
Did you know that bright sunlight can
cause glare when light scatters off reflective surfaces, which causes
discomfort and dull, washed-out images? Polarization filters this light,
so you get better clarity.
In the past, polarization has been
limited to sunglasses, which are popular with drivers and boaters for
dealing with the harsh glare off the road or the water. However, glare
isn't limited to extreme situations. It's also present in our everyday
lives. Now you can get the benefits of polarization in an everyday lens.
Transitions Vantage lenses are virtually clear indoors. Outdoors they
increase polarization as they darken. This means that you can get
crisper, sharper vision in the dappled light of a tree-lined sidewalk or
the full glare of a city street.
IT TAKES A MASTERY OF
Until recently, polarization only existed as
static film embedded in a lens. It was tinted and fixed, and thus unable
to adapt to changing light and become clear. Transitions Optical has
revolutionized the science by creating lenses in which molecules not
only darken under the influence of UV light but also align at a proper
angle in the lens so that they become polarized. In other words, new
Transitions Vantage lenses help control glare and light scatter by both
darkening and increasing their polarization in UV light.
Conventional photochromic molecules darken in random patterns, and that
works perfectly to create the adaptation from light to dark. In order to
create the polarization effect, Transitions Vantage lenses have
photochromic molecules that darken and align. This allows them to create
a pattern of horizontal lines with the power to cut through intense
