A friend was asking me just this weekend about the difference between types of 3D films. This post should help. Thanks to The Optical Vision Site for alerting us to this great 3D Infographic from Sortable.com.
Variable Polarization and Tint a Breakthrough for EyewearTransitions Optical has announced that their new technology, Transitions Vantage lenses, will be available to consumers beginning today. Why is it revolutionary? After all, variable tint lenses have existed for decades, and there are already examples of variable polarizing lenses.
What makes Transitions Vantage so incredible is the combination of the two abilities in one lens. Previously, variable tint (photochromic) lenses got darker in the sunlight, but didn’t polarize (see photo). And while variable polarizing lenses already exist, none of them has the ability to become completely clear for indoor use.
However, with Transitions Vantage lenses, the wearer can experience incredibly crisp, clear vision whether indoors or out. This is because not only does the lens darken in sunlight, but the geniuses at Transitions Optical use molecules that move and align when exposed to UV light. The more exposure, the more alignment, which increases polarization. This technology, which Transitions Optical claims has been in the works for almost a decade, is stunning.
The doctors and staff at LaFollette Eye Clinic are excited to be able to offer this incredible technology. We have recognized the benefits of lens polarization for years, and touted its positive effects on vision. Now for the first time, our patients can enjoy the technology in a lens that is also usable indoors.
Transitions Optical has announced availability beginning today. Why not check out a pair for yourself?
