Making driving safer
Transitions Drivewear®: Ideal for driving
Transitions Drivewear lenses uniquely combine two of the most advanced technologies found in the eyeglass industry today: Transitions® Photochromic Technology and NuPolar® polarization.
Transitions Drivewear lenses are the first photochromic lenses to darken behind the windshield of a car, allowing Drivewear to change color based on current driving conditions in order to enhance the driver’s vision. In addition, Drivewear lenses are polarized to block blinding glare, another distinct advantage when driving a car.
Transitions Drivewear® lenses
Drivewear lenses are capable of sensing and reacting to varying light conditions both outside and behind the windshield of the car. The lenses provide glare protection through polarization and enhance and protect vision through photochromics which respond to both visible and UV light.
In Low Light/ Overcast conditions, Drivewear lenses remove glare and maximize useful light information reaching the eye for optimum visual accuity. In this stage Drivewear lenses are a high contrast green/yellow color.
In Bright Light/ Driving conditions (behind the windshield), Drivewear lenses remove glare and control the intensity of light reaching the eye for optimum visual accuity. Under these conditions, the Drivewear lenses turn a copper color which many feel is the optimum color for a driving lens.
In Very Bright Light/ Outside conditions, Drivewear lenses remove glare and provide maximum filtration of excess light for optimum visual comfort and accuity. It achieves its maximum dark color under these conditions.
We produce these lenses as both single-strength and progressive lenses with the desired prescription. Drivewear spectacle lenses can also be worn very comfortably for various outdoor sporting activities, for example golf, mountain biking and water sports. Once again, there is no longer any need to switch glasses when light conditions change. Ask your optician about your personalised “driving glasses”.
