Lenses: Light and shade

Optician offers a guide to some of the best photochromic ophthalmic lenses currently available to UK practices.

Transitions Signature Gen 8 (pictured above) is said to be the first light intelligent photochromic lens with a revolutionary nano-composite technology that pushes performance and offers optimum vision, comfort and protection.

Available in a full colour palette including amber, amethyst, emerald and sapphire, Transitions, part of Essilor-Luxottica, says the lens adds personality and style to frames and offers a practical solution to ultraviolet (UV) protection.

Patients can find their chosen colour using the Transitions virtual ‘try on’ mirror, while the interactive online light sensitivity test aims to help deepen awareness of light management.

Alan Pitcher, commercial director for wholesale lenses at EssilorLuxottica, said: ‘These interactive tools will help spark conversations between patients and their local practice. We also have style workshops and technical product training available for the practice team to support wider conversations around tailor-made solutions and Transitions Signature Gen 8 being the best overall photochromic lens on the market.’
