Transitions® and Blue Light

By now, most people have heard about the emerging research that the blue light emitted from our smartphones, laptops, flat screen TVs, and high-efficiency lighting poses a potential danger to their health, including the health of their eyes. At the very least, we know over exposure to blue light causes eye strain and fatigue and has a negative effect on sleep cycles. Transitions® lenses protect your eyes from harmful blue light both outdoors and indoors.

  • Transitions® Signature VII™ lenses filter 20% of harmful blue light indoors and 85% outdoors
  • Transitions® XTRActive® lenses filter 34% of harmful blue light indoors and 88%-95% outdoors.
  • Transitions® Vantage lenses filter 35% of harmful blue light indoors and 85% outdoors.
