Introducing New Transitions® Vantage™ lenses with variable polarization!

The first and only everyday photochromic lenses that are virtually clear indoors and darken and polarize outdoors.


They said it couldn't be done. But Transitions® Optical did it. Made the impossible possible by creating the world's first and only everyday lenses that are designed to be worn indoors and to darken with increasing polarization outdoors for crisper, sharper vision.


Variable polarization has arrived with Transitions® Vantage™ lenses, the first in a new generation of everyday photochromic lenses that darken and polarize outdoors. Transitions® Optical had reimagined what's possible with photochromic lenses. New Transitions® Vantage™ lenses are the first of a new type of everyday Transitions® lenses that darken and polarize upon UV exposure.


Breakthrough variable polarization technology. Until now, polarization only existed as static film embedded in or laminated on a lens. It was tinted and fixed, and thus unable to adapt to changing light and become clear. Transitions® Optical has created a revolutionary technology by creating lenses in which dyes not only darken under the influence of UV light but also align at a proper angle in the lens so that they become polarized. In other words, New Transitions® Vantage™ lenses help control glare and light scatter by both darkening and increasing their polarization in UV light.






A new and crisper visual experience for your patients, every day. Sunlight can cause glare when light scatters off reflective surfaces, causing discomfort and creating dull, washed-out images. Polarization filters this bright light to provide better visual clarity.


With New Transitions® Vantage™ lenses, your patients will continue to experience the comfort and clarity they've enjoyed with their everyday Transitions® photochromic lenses, but they'll also have the additional benefit of crisper, sharper.more vivid vision throughout the day, in varying outdoor light situations.


Because Transitions® Vantage™ lenses adapt to changing outdoor light by both darkening and polarizing patients can now enjoy the benefits of polarization — during more hours of the day.


Patients love New Transitions® Vantage™ lenses, especially those who already wear photochromic lenses. Never before have patients been able to enjoy the noticeably crisper, sharper vision of polarized lenses in everyday adaptive lenses. Research shows that they love the experience both indoors and outdoors.


8 out of 10 patients were satisfied with the outdoor experience as well as the indoor clarity of New Transitions® Vantage™ lenses.
