Why is it important to protect my eyes from UV light?
Sunlight consists of two types of harmful rays: UVA rays and UVB rays, UV rays can pose serious risks to a person’s overall health and eye health. UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin – leading to signs of premature aging such as wrinkling or age spots. UVB rays are the sun’s burning rays and are the primary cause of sunburn.
Excessive UV exposure is dangerous for eyes as well as your skin. It can lead to a number of serious, sight-stealing diseases such as cataracts and age-related macular degeneration down the road: making ongoing protection from UV rays a must.
Transitions adaptive lenses are variable tint lenses which activate when exposed to ultra violet radiation (UV rays). Transitions adaptive lenses benefit from an exclusive patented Technology developed and constantly improved by Transitions Optical.
When the UV light diminishes, Transitions adaptive lenses fade back to clear. They help reduce glare, automatically adapting to outdoor light intensity, improving contrast and reducing eye fatigue.
