Automatically changing lenses offer protection.
Each time you step outdoors this summer your eyes are exposed to harmful ultraviolet light from the sun. Ultraviolet light is absorbed by the eyes, and damages tissue. Conditions such as lid cancers, abnormal growths, cataracts and macular degeneration are caused and worsened by ultraviolet light exposure. Glasses that block this harmful light are a must when outside.
Lenses that offer UV protection are an excellent way to keep the eyes safe. Enter transition lenses! Transition lenses incorporate a unique technology to protect the eyes. When worn indoors, the lenses are clear and allow comfortable vision. Once a person steps outside, and the lenses are exposed to the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light, they begin to darken. This darkening of the lenses outdoors once again allows for comfortable vision. Not only are transition lenses activated by UV light, but they provide 100% protection against these harmful rays. Transition lenses are especially important for children, as they spend the majority of their time outdoors.
Protection from ultraviolet light is important to maintain healthy eyes. The convenient automatic protection of transition lenses make them a perfect way to enjoy the outdoors this summer while keeping the eyes safe.
