Transitions Optical has responded to consumer demand for a photochromic lens that features faster fade back without compromising lens darkness, with the launch of its next-generation Transitions Signature lenses.
Launched 1 April, Transitions Signature GEN 8 lenses have been developed on the back of surveys with more than 76,000 glasses wearers and 4,000 eyecare professionals over five years to determine the key attributes for a photochromic lens.
The new lens design – available in sapphire, amethyst, emerald, amber, graphite green, brown and grey – features a reinvented photochromic system and comes six years after the launch of the previous Transitions Signature VII lenses.
“The new Transitions Signature GEN 8 lens is up to three minutes faster to fade back and 30% faster to activate. Not only are the lenses faster, they are even darker than previous Transitions generations,” the company’s Asia Pacific general manager Mr Stuart Cannon said.
