Transitions® XTRActive lenses will not replace our current Transitions® VI lenses since they are a different type of photochromic lens that will appeal to a certain kind of person more than the standard Transitions® VI lenses as you can see in the video above. These new Transitions® XTRActive lenses, along with Transitions VI lenses, represent an additional choice in everyday lenses for our customers.
Transitions® XTRActive lenses are recommended for patients who want the darkest everyday Transitions® lenses outdoors, due to their active lifestyle, but who also prefer a slight tint indoors. Unlike other photochromic lenses, the Transitions® XTRActive also react behind the windscreen of a car.
The Ultra Super Thin 1.74 Transitions® and XTRActive Transitions® lenses should be especially useful for people with higher powered prescriptions with a demand for a darker photochromic lens that would remove the need to carry an extra pair of sunglasses around during the day.
Clearly, different customers have different requirements from their lenses. These XTRActive Transitions® are a very new lens on the market so take the time to consider if these lenses are the perfect partner for your new glasses with the help of the video above and this chart: -
