Transition Lenses

Affordable Transition Lenses in Fort McMurray

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 Fort McMurray, stop by The Eyewear Place.

We are glad to offer other products and services such as sunglasses and eye exams. For further details, feel free to speak to us.

Benefits of Transition Lenses

Photochromic lenses offer convenience and several other advantages which include:

  • They provide continuous protection from the UV rays.

  • They don’t get lost as easily as glasses.

  • They are available in many styles and colours.

How to Take Care of Your Transition Lenses

In order to prolong the lifespan and effectiveness of your lenses, here are some ways to take care of them:

  • 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.

  • You must not dry your lenses with paper towels, tissues or napkins as they can leave scratches on your lens.
