Transitions® photochromic technology

The photochromic properties of Transitions Drivewear lenses offer a significant advancement over conventional photochromics, which respond only to UV light exposure. Car windscreens block UV light, so conventional photochromic lenses do not darken inside the car. Younger Optics teamed up with Transitions Optical to develop special UV and visible light-sensitive photochromic dyes.


Drivewear technology

Transitions Drivewear is the ultimate sun lenses for outdoors and daytime driving. This high performance patented polarized photochromic lenses combine two innovative technologies: the advanced photochromic technology of Transitions® and the high-efficiency polarization of NuPolar®. Transitions Drivewear is not suitable for nighttime driving. This dynamic combination means the lens continuously adapts to changing light conditions by reacting to both visible light and UV light. Transitions Drivewear sun lenses provide the ideal lens color and darkness to suit your current daytime outdoor or driving conditions while blocking 100% of the sun’s harmful UV rays. Always polarized, Transitions Drivewear polarized lenses incorporate photochromic dyes designed to shift between a lighter and darker density by reacting to changing light conditions. Transitions Drivewear activate behind the car windscreen, which was not previously possible with traditional photochromic technology.
