Contact lenses that adjust to the light around you, sounds like science fiction, right? Not any more with transition lenses! These contacts introduce a new light-filtering technology which adapts to incoming UV light to maximize comfort and reduce eye strain. No more squinting while on your afternoon walk or blurry starbursts when out at night – only crisp, clear vision.
Right now, the only contacts being produced with this brand-new technology are the Acuvue Oasys Transitions. Using patented “light intelligence technology” the lens provides all-day comfort without any hassle. Acuvue developed transition lenses after discovering that two out of three people indicated being bothered by bright lights and resorted to compensating behaviors (like squinting) to ease the strain.
Transition lenses work by filtering incoming light and automatically adjusting the tint within the lens to lessen bright lights. They are suitable for indoor and outdoor wear, which means you don’t have to worry about them darkening while watching a movie or sitting at your computer.
The transition technology also accounts for incoming blue light, which is given off from phone screens and computer monitors. Blue light has been known to cause eye strain and disrupt regular sleep cycles. In the modern world it’s almost impossible to avoid blue light on a regular basis, but with the Acuvue Oasys Transitions you can give your eyes a break from constant screen time.
While the Acuvue Oasys Transitions are a revolution in contact lenses and provide never-before seen innovation, they aren’t a replacement for sunglasses. Transition contacts do provide exceptional UV protection. However, they don’t completely filter UV rays like standard sunglasses.
Luckily, Acuvue Oasys Transitions can be worn with a pair of non-prescription sunglasses so you don’t have to sacrifice wearing contacts or wearing sunglasses. You can have the best of both worlds. Our sister company Liingo offers a wide selection of prescription and non-prescription sunglasses. Plus, with their own cutting-edge technology, you can find your perfect style and fit from home.
Ultimately though, we get it if this new-fangled contact lens technology isn’t your thing. Sometimes sticking to the classics, like transition glasses, is perfect for your situation. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered there, too. Our newest brand, Boomerang Lenses, offers re-lensing to any pair of glasses you have laying around. We know your junk drawer has several old pairs of glasses and we want to bring them back to life!
Boomerang offers re-lensing services so that those frames don’t go to waste and you can keep wearing those gorgeous glasses you worked so hard for. Yes, you can even upgrade them with transition lenses.
