We all love a bright sunny day but sadly, as we get older, our eyes become more sensitive to light, and we may find ourselves squinting more often or experiencing discomfort in bright environments. For those of us experiencing these problems, it might be time to consider upgrading our spectacle lenses to Transitions Lenses.This is a text block.

What are Transitions Lenses?
Transitions Lenses are photochromic lenses that automatically adapt to changing light conditions. When exposed to UV light, the lenses darken, providing enhanced visual comfort and protection. Indoors or in low-light conditions, the lenses remain clear, ensuring optimal vision.

Why Transitions Lenses may be the right choice for your next spectacle lenses?

1. Enhanced visual comfort: As we age, our eyes become more sensitive to glare and bright light. Transitions Lenses reduce eye strain and discomfort by automatically adjusting to changing light conditions, making it easier to move between indoor and outdoor environments.

2. Convenient protection: Transitions Lenses offer the convenience of having both clear lenses and sunglasses in one pair of spectacles. This eliminates the need to carry a separate pair of sunglasses or switch between indoor and outdoor eyewear.

3. UV protection: Prolonged exposure to UV light can contribute to the development of cataracts and other eye-related issues. Transitions Lenses provide 100% protection against UVA and UVB rays, helping to maintain eye health as we age.

4. Versatile and stylish: Transitions Lenses are available in a variety of lens designs, materials, and frames, allowing you to select the perfect pair to complement your personal style and meet your visual needs.

5. Ideal for Cheshire’s climate: Cheshire experiences a mix of bright, sunny days and overcast conditions. Transitions Lenses adapt to these varying light levels, ensuring comfortable vision throughout the day, whether you’re enjoying a stroll through Nantwich or running errands in town.

If you find yourself frequently squinting or experiencing eye discomfort, it may be time to speak with us about Transitions Lenses. Embracing this adaptable lens technology can enhance your visual comfort, protect your eyes, and simplify your life by combining the benefits of clear lenses and sunglasses in one convenient package.


Transitions lenses are not the same as they were ten, five or even three years ago. Transitions® Signature™  from Essilor darken to just the right amount of tint outdoors, fade back to clear quicker than previous lens generations and are as clear as a clear lens indoors.

A recent addition to the Transitions family is Transitions® XTRActive® lenses, which is uniquely designed to provide extra protection from light outdoors, indoors, and even in the car. They are Essilors darkest everyday lenses, even in the hottest climates, and they darken in the car.

Traditionally Transitions were only available in grey, grey green and brown. Today however, they are also available in fashionable Style Colours. Choose Amathyst, Sapphire, Amber and Emerald to tone or contrast with your chosen frame for a statement look.
