Vision Health Month: Improve Your Vision AND Protect Your Eyes With Transitions® Lenses

Vision Health Month: Improve Your Vision AND Protect Your Eyes With Transitions® Lenses

This Vision Health Month, consider protecting your eyes while you improve your vision with a pair of Transitions® lenses. These lenses darken when exposed to UV rays and return to their regular clear state when indoors. Many Transitions® lenses make this change quickly, and the degree they darken depends on how sunny it is outside so that the tint of the lenses can vary instead of only being clear or tinted. While these lenses may seem like a replacement for sunglasses, they are so much more than that, as they offer convenience, outdoor eye protection, indoor eye protection, and more. Transitions® lenses can benefit your eyes and your life.

The Benefits Of Transitions® Lenses

1. Reduce UV Exposure
UV light is harmful to the eyes and can increase your risk of developing cataracts, photokeratitis (sunburn of the eyes), growths, eye cancer, and more. Transition lenses that are UV blocking limit the amount of UV light that your eyes are exposed to and help maintain ocular wellness. 

2. Limit Eye Strain
Bright light causes people to squint and strain their eyes to focus. While many people might think of this eye strain on a hot summer day when trying to look out onto the lake, it is actually a year-round issue. A bright winter day will cause glare off of the snow, a bare highway can reflect light, and a sunny spring day can cause squinting on a walk. Reducing this eye strain will limit eye fatigue while simultaneously making vision more comfortable.

3. Block Blue Light
With the recent increase in the use of technology for school, work, entertainment, and communication, people are exposed to more blue light than ever. Blue light is short, high-energy waves of light that are part of the electromagnetic spectrum. This type of light can cause a person to develop digital eye strain, also called computer vision syndrome. Digital eye strain can cause symptoms such as blurred vision, headaches, eye strain, dry eyes, watery eyes, sore neck and shoulders, increased sensitivity to light, and difficulty sleeping. One way to help prevent or reduce these symptoms is to get blue light blocking eyeglasses. Since Transitions® lenses have a high level of blue light blocking, they can reduce your digital eye strain symptoms.

4. Increase Versatility
Transition lenses make it simple to switch from sunglasses to eyeglasses without the need to remember to bring both pairs and their cases. Having a pair of Transitions® lenses allows you to seamlessly switch between indoor and outdoor wear while reducing the cost of purchasing both prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses. 

5. See Better
Since Transitions® lenses are prescription eyeglasses, you will never be without the proper prescription. Many people switch to transition lenses so they do not have to choose between regular sunglasses and impaired vision or proper vision but glare and discomfort from the elements. Transitions® lenses offer a convenient solution that simplifies wearing eyeglasses in all conditions.
