What are Transition lenses?
Transition lenses automatically darken to a moderate shade when they are exposed to the ultra-violet rays of direct sunlight. The lenses lighten again when removed from this direct sunlight. There are two colour options to choose from, which are grey and brown. We can show you a sample of a lens which you can look through to decide which colour you prefer.
