Do you have a pair of glasses so cool you could use it for all occasions?

To read at home, to watch in cinema, to drive carefully, to the beach, to hike up the mountain…

I recently went for an eye check up and got myself a pair of eyeglasses by Transitions Optical (was prescribed very very mild power since i always have not-bad eye sight).


I have many pair of kick-ass sunglasses so this time i got myself a more delicate looking frame.

Transitions® adaptive lenses are designed to quickly adapt from clear indoors to dark in brightest sun. When i was told that this pair of glasses will turn dark when i go out to the sun i couldn’t really grasp the idea. Really? How?! Turned out that the Transitions® Adaptive lenses has been around for yearrrs and i was just being super kampung about it lol.

But these lenses aren’t just about clear and dark, they continuously adapt to changing light so they’re always exactly the shade you need them to be.


For example!

I brought my glasses to Japan with me. I wore it in my apartment, indoor, and the lenses are perfectly in its normal clear shade.


Once i go out…

In just seconds (you don’t realize it when you are wearing it, i had to look into the mirror haha), the lenses quickly adapt to the outdoor sun and turned into a darker shade!!


We went up to 5th station of Mt Fuji, and that was when my lenses turned the darkest. UV rays are stronger up the mountain, and now it looks like a pair of sunglasses!

Other than frequently applying sunblock outdoor, you will also need eye protection. And Transitions lenses blocks 100% UVA and UVB lights just like good sunglasses and give your eyes good protections while letting you see clearly anywhere.


The best thing about the lenses are not just in two states: “clear” and “dark”. They automatically adapt to changing light, providing your eyes with exactly the amount of shade they need for any situation, so you see things in the best light. The picture is taken when it is cloudy with slight sunlights, so they glasses are in a slight tint of grey.

Ever experience glaring sunlight that hurt your eyes when you walk from indoor to outdoor, and have to squint like Futurama Fry? When you wear glasses prescribed with Transitions® lenses, the lenses continuously adapt to changing light, so it will help reducing glare, eye strain and fatigue, for a more comfortable sight.


When you go back indoor, it quickly fades back to clear lenses again.

I think it’s super convenient! You get to choose from a lot of different frames that suits your style, and it’s very comfortable too. Of course what i like most is that besides helping you to see better, it is also smart enough to protect your eyes!
Anyone who wear glasses or sunglasses can wear Transitions lenses, it is suitable for all ages including children, and it’s available in grey and brown shades. Quite cool right?
