Protect your vision

Transitions Signature is a great every day solution. They adjust to changing light conditions, seamlessly providing visual comfort.


Light intelligent technology

Seamlessly adapt to the perfect tint in every light

Advanced protection

Transitions Signature provides protection against harmful light(1), whether you are indoors or outdoors.

Improved visual comfort

The lenses adapt to light so your eyes don't have to

Light intelligent lens solution

Combine your corrective lens design with a light intelligent technology that conveniently protects your eyes from indoors to outdoors. Transitions Signature is the fastest and most responsive technology, constantly adapting to your surrounding light conditions. When exposed to natural light, the trillions of photochromic molecules found in Transitions Signature Chromea7 technology begin to recalibrate so the optimal amount of light reaches your eyes whether you’re in bright sunlight or under cloud cover.

Choose your colour.

Customise your frames with one of Transitions three signature colours. Each colour activates when exposed to light and quickly fades back to clear when indoors. Now you can ensure your eye health is protected while looking great outside. 


Light is essential for our vision and our overall well-being. Part of the light spectrum of the light spectrum that enters our eyes can be a contributing factor of eye diseases (cataracts, AMD)(2). Transitions technology blocks 100% UVA and UVB light rays and selective filters and absorbs harmful Blue-Violet light indoors, from modern light sources, and outdoors.
