A coating, similar to those found on microscopes and cameras, is bonded to the lenses allowing for this reduction in glare, reflections and haloes. This creates safer lens option especially when driving at night.

Transitions lenses automatically adjust color by the levels of visible and UV light. Transitions brand lenses become nearly as dark as sunglasses and block 100% UVA and UVB. These lenses are highly recommended for children since 80% of sun exposure occurs before 18 years of age. Transitions lenses come in several colors, mirrors and in a variety of lens materials and designs.
Polarized lenses are a type of sunglasses that eliminate glare reflected from horizontal surfaces such as metal, glass and water. This allows your eyes to be more comfortable while driving, while on the water, or playing sports. Like Transitions lenses, polarized lenses also block 100% UVA and UVB.
