Transition lenses have been around for over a decade, making it convenient for those who wear glasses to avoid switching to sunglasses when they head outside. Simply put, the lenses darken in the sunlight, and lighten in the dark to provide the proper protection for your eyes.
To decide if the transition lens is right for you, there are list of pros and cons to dive into. The best part about transitional lenses are linked to their cost-effectiveness and convenience. They save you from having to purchase multiple pairs (prescription lenses and normal glasses) and carry them around as well. Additionally, they’re functional and protective from the harmful UV rays.
There are a few downsides to having transition lenses in that they’re mostly ineffective in the car because of the windshield’s ability to block the sun, and they are affected negatively by colder weather. They won’t react as quickly to UV rays as you would hope in the winter months. Finally, they most likely will not be polarized, leading to an annoying glare.
