Why I Love My New Transition Lenses

For as long as I can remember, glasses have been a part of my everyday look for quite some time and I have gone back and forth from wearing contacts to eyeglasses until I finally decided glasses were the best option for me.  Contacts, for some reason, just didn’t agree with me and since I’ve been an eyeglass wearer for many years, I tried many different pairs.  Well two years ago,  I came across a television commercial for transition lenses, and loved every thing I was seeing and hearing.  I didn’t know much about them at the time but all I knew is that I wanted a pair.

The choice to switch over to Transitions lenses were easy. The fact that I had to wear glasses was never the problem.  In fact I love wearing them. I also love wearing sunglasses but didn’t enjoy all the going back and forth between the two when going in and out of the sun.  So the switch in my opinion was an easy one.  I received my first pair 2 years ago and have not looked backed since.

I’ve been a happy wearer of transitions lenses for over two years now and just recently I went in for my annual eye exam and was fitted for my 2nd pair of frames and lenses that I am totally in love with.

And here’s why!


Since the lenses change from clear to dark in the presence of ultraviolet (UV) rays, they offer a 2-in-1 solution and I don’t have to carry clear eyeglasses and a pair of sunglasses separately anymore.  It was really annoying having to switch frames ALL the time just so I can wear sunglasses!  It’s now nice to transition from doing something indoors to heading outdoors for a quick walk without having to change glasses.  The time required for them to change from dark to clear is really quick and half the time, I don’t even notice the change since it happens gradually.


Knowing that Transitions lenses block 100 percent of harmful UVA and UVB rays is very reassuring.  Indoors and at night, the lenses are as clear as regular clear lenses. Outdoors, when exposed to the sun’s UV rays, they turn sunglass dark and if you are a squinter like I am in the sunlight, these are very helpful in reducing strain on the eyes.

Just like sunblock protects your skin, Transitions lenses help preserve the health and wellness of your eyes by blocking 100% of harmful  UVA & UVB rays which ultimately helps too preserve long-term eye health.


The cool thing about Transitions lenses is that they can be fitted into nearly every type of designer frame.  They fit comfortably, and look great as sunglasses.  They are available with all kinds of materials and designs and gray and brown tints making them fashionable as well.  Compatible with virtually all frames, they are also available in a wide range of lens materials and prescriptions. Chances are if your prescription is available in a clear lens, it’s also available in a Transitions lens.

I really love my new glasses with Transition Lenses.  They are attractive, lightweight and have turned out to be the best option for me in so many ways.  They work well both indoors and out and make my life a lot easier!

They are also a great option for kids as well.  The shatter proof materials they are made of  make them a great buy while also offering perfect UV protection for their young eyes.

Have you tried Transitions Lenses before?


I received a pair of Transitions Lenses for the purpose of this review.  All opinions of my own.


  1. Those are so stylish and functional all in one!

  2. My ex had them and they were fantastic!

  3. Rachel says:

    I have tried them once before and I am not sure what the problem was but I hated them. I know the technology has changed but I am scared to try them again.

  4. My dad uses them.

  5. Very cool!

  6. I need to get a pair of these to my husband

  7. Sarah says:

    I’ve had to start wearing my glasses pretty much full time these days and I’ve been struggling with the no sun glasses part. I remember having some of these 20 yrs ago, but it sounds like the technology and style has come a long way. Maybe I’ll try again. Thanks.

  8. I don’t wear glasses {or contacts} but my dad had these before he got Lasik & he LOVED them!

  9. If you have to wear glasses I’d say they are the way to go. Otherwise you’re always trying to keep a pair of glasses safe (either your sunglasses or your regular ones). It’s all about making things easier.

  10. I had these when they first came out. They are probably much better now.

  11. I’ve been wanting to try transition lens out. Glad to know they are worth the money.

  12. Kait says:

    Stylish and functional — love the combo!

  13. Katie says:

    that’s pretty neat – I know a bunch of people who have them.

  14. Anne says:

    I want to get these next time I need glasses, it would be so convenient

  15. Kathy says:

    Those look great!

  16. I had some, but they never changed in the car which is where I needed them!

  17. I have a pair and they don’t get dark enough for me.

  18. Those are fab! I’m due for an eye exam and may look into getting these since I have photophobia (my eyes are very sensitive to light).

  19. Those look great. I’ve been thinking about getting transition lenses.

  20. We were just talking about these at lunch yesterday!

  21. these would be so fun to have. I have a dr appt coming up. maybe I should switch to Transitions

  22. I have contacts, but back when I wore glasses it was such a pain to switch between my regular frames & sunglasses–these would be easier!
