Eyeglass Lens Enhancements
Chemistrie Color CVD
New Chemistrie Color is a breakthrough in lens technology that has been developed by a proprietary artificial intelligence program. This high-tech program has identified the ideal color gamut to assist with the perception of color in those with color blindness. While some competitors rely on heavy red or pink tinted lenses, Chemistrie Color provides CVD patients with the truest possible discernment of color and enhances genuine color vision. Unlike other CVD products, Chemistrie Color is available in multiple lens options: ready-made Non-Prescription glasses, a Non-Prescription lenses to be cut into any frame, or as a custom Chemistrie Clip.
Chemistrie sunlenses go above and beyond the traditional everyday clip-on. Utilizing a patented Chemistrie magnetic lens layering technology, all of the sunlenses are able to be fit to virtually any frame.

Anti-Reflective Coatings reduce the amount of reflections off the lenses allowing more light to the eye, enabling you to see crisper and sharper. Anti-Reflective coatings help everyone with general vision, and in particular anyone who drives at night or uses a computer.
These coatings are the same coatings that are applied to camera lenses, binocculars, telescopes, and any other lens that requires good optics.
Photochromic lenses darken to adapt to changing light conditions when exposed to UV rays, but car windshields include UV-blocking filters that prevent the lenses from changing—so standard photochromic lenses are not ideal for driving.
Enter Drivewear® lenses, created by Transitions® to solve that problem. Drivewear lenses can sense and react to varying light conditions both outside and behind the windshield of the car. From bright sunlight accompanied by intense, blinding glare, to overcast inclement conditions, Drivewear lenses provide the ideal tint for any light conditions.
A wide variety of glasses frames can accommodate Drivewear lenses, resulting in eyewear that meets your needs for fashion and function.
Polarized Sunglass Lenses
Without getting technical the best choice for sunglasses are Polarized lenses. They block glare reflecting off of objects.
Real life examples are as follows:
- Driving down the road and the sun reflecting off the back window of the car in front of you.
- Boating or fishing and the sun reflects off the water.
- Driving while its raining and the sun reflecting off the wet road.
The most popular polarized colors are grey, brown, and Drivewear Polarized Transitions.
Grey is the best for the brightest conditions. Also good for deep water fishing.
Brown is a good all around lens. Also good for flats fishing.
Drivewear is good for driving, rainy conditions (during the day), golf, cloudy or overcast days.
NuPolar® lenses are extremely efficient in blocking blinding glare while improving contrast, color and depth perception and overall visual acuity. NuPolar lenses define the world standard in prescription sunwear. They feature the most advanced polarizing filters in the widest selection of materials, colors and lens styles.
NuPolar® lenses are available in 5 colors to meet a wide variety of lifestyle needs: Gray 1, Gray 3, Brown, Green and Copper. And, unlike some brands, we achieve the color without sacrificing polarization performance.

There are different brands of photocromatic lenses, however none match up to what Transitions offers.
Transitions lenses are lenses that change from light to dark. Most do not change behind the windshield of a car, though.
The newest addition of transitions is Transitions 8. These lenses are virtually clear indoors; when outside they change to a comfortable grey or brown color. They also change the fastest of any Transition lens.
The other two main types of Transtions are XTRActive and Vantage.
The XTRActive are the darkest indoors and change to the darkest outdoors. They also change a bit behind the windshield of a car.
Then there are the Transitions Vantage. These lenses have a slight color indoors, however when in bright sunlight there are molecules that hitch together and form a polarized filter. Vantage lenses also do not change behind the windshield of a car.
While Transition lenses are convienient, they still are not a replacement for a good pair of prescription Polarized sunglasses.
