Like regular Transitions lenses, transitions XTRActive change tint level according to the sun’s brightness and intensity. Transitions XTRActive are extra sensitive to sunlight, so much so they can even sense changes in UV when you’re inside a car. When the lens senses change, the tint level adjusts on the glasses. Transitions XTRActive also provides a broader range of darkness in their tinting, ranging from 10% to 80% compared with 15%-70% for regular Transitions lenses. When comparing lenses, Transitions XTRActive should definitely be a top consideration for your prescription eyewear needs.
How Do Transitions XTRActive Work?
Transitions lenses either have a layer of photochromic molecules that constantly adjust light transmission according to UV intensity) bonded to the lens surface, or they have photochromic dye drawn into the lens material itself. The exact chemical composition is unknown with this patented technology. At its core, transitions contain organic carbon-based molecules known as naphthopyrans that change their molecular structure according to the UV light intensity. Naphthopyrans are photochromic compounds with molecules that can generate a yellow color when irradiated with ultraviolet light.
How Do Transitions XTRActive Change Shades?
The chemical structure of the photochromic substance either on the Transitions XTRActive lens surface or within the lens responds to changes in UV radiation intensity. This response to UV intensity results in different amounts of light being transmitted through the Transitions XTRActive lens.
Do Transitions XTRActive Lenses Block UV Rays?
Transitions XTRActive lenses will blog out 100% of UVA and UVB radiation making them one of the best lenses available for eye protection. Transitions XTRActive also block damage blue light, making them the ultimate in eyewear protection.
Are Transitions Xtractive Lenses Worth The Money?
Transitions Xtractive lenses offer a more comprehensive range of tint levels, and they are quicker to respond to sunlight changes. These features on Transitions XTRActive lenses are especially useful for motorists as their vehicles sometimes go in and out of tunnels, for example.
How Do You Clean Transitions lenses?
