Transition lenses, also known as photochromic lenses are made of millions of molecules that undergo a chemical reaction when exposed to UV rays. The UV light activates the lens to transform from clear to dark and a range of tints in-between. If you are looking for transition lenses in Lloydminster or Fort McMurray, stop by The Eyewear Place.

You must clean your lenses at least twice a day.
You should use lukewarm water to clean them when the tiny dusty particles get stuck on your lenses. You must not spray household chemical cleansers on your glasses as they contain ammonia which can deteriorate the special coating on your lenses.
