Transitions Drivewear.

Transitions Drivewear is the world’s only sunglass lens that changes to three different colours – Olive, Copper and Dark Brown – and also darken and lighten to suit wearer’s changing light conditions.

The polarized photochromic lens was developed with ophthalmologists and optometrists in the US combining two global leading technologies: Transitions photochromic technology and NuPolar polarization. The colours were chosen to deliver optimal vision in different conditions.

The result is a lens that delivers the best possible outdoor vision in every condition to give wearers an edge; whether that is playing elite sports, everyday driving, leisure activities or simply enjoying the great outdoors.
