Transition Options

Wiley X offers 4 different types of transition lenses, which are photochromic lenses that are activated and darkens when exposed to Ultra Violet radiation. When the Ultra Violet radiation diminishes, the lens fade back from dark to clear. So outside the lenses will darken and indoors it lightens. The advantages of a transition lens are e.g. they reduce glare, improve contrast, block 100% UVA and UVB rays and reduce eye fatigue.
