Transition (or photochromic) lenses are one of the most popular technological advancements to hit the eyewear industry in the last several decades.
Can you get Non-Prescription Safety Glasses with the Transition Lenses?
These lenses feature a molecular coating; the molecules morph in shape when exposed to ultraviolet light, darkening the lenses, then revert back to their native form when ultraviolet light is removed. In essence, transition lenses turn themselves into sunglasses in the presence of the sun yet remain perfectly clear at night or indoors.
Transition lenses have been a particular boon to wears of prescription eyewear. No longer do they need two pairs of prescription glasses, one for regular use and one darkened to act as sunglasses. Now one pair can do it all. But prescription eyewear users aren’t the only ones who can benefit greatly from transition lenses.
People who require safety glasses can make use of transition lenses in much the same way as prescription-lens wearers. If you wear safety glasses and go in and out of doors a lot, or work under any conditions that include both natural and artificial light, transition lenses can be used to simplify your life as well as save you money. There’s no need to buy two pairs of safety glasses. One pair, equipped with transition lenses, will handle all light conditions, in and out, day and night.
