NOTICEABLY CRISPER, SHARPER VISION OUTDOORS. Hello world and goodbye glare. Thanks to breakthrough technology, new Transitions® lenses don’t just adapt to changing light, they also polarize as they darken. Outdoors, the polarization adjusts to match the level of outdoor glare, which can vary as the day progresses and conditions change. That means you see life in the best light with less glare for better clarity and colour.

Sunglasses are an easy solution that makes your life more comfortable and stylish, while providing critical protection from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet (UV) rays.

Applying the right sunscreen protects your skin from premature aging and the harmful effects of UV rays. The same goes for your lenses. The addition of a protective coating shields the eyes against the UV rays while preventing premature aging and any other irreversible damage linked to sun exposure.

Sunglasses are not just for summer months. They should be worn year round.
