Transitions Vantage

The First and Only Everyday Photochromic Lenses with Variable Polarisation.

Clear lenses that darken have been around for a long time. Sunglasses with polarisation have also existed for a long time, but Transitions Vantage marks a new era in eyewear. Transitions Vantage eyeglass lenses both darken and polarise in bright, outdoor light.

That means, as Transitions® Vantage™ lenses get darker, vision gets crisper, sharper and more vivid. While glare is reduced in even the brightest outdoor conditions.


  • Block 100% of UV rays
  • Fit any prescription and frame
  • Suitable for any age including children


  • They adapt to indirect light – such as light reflected from buildings, cars, and many other surfaces.
  • Fully clear indoors and at night
  • Fast fade back speed

Transitions for kids comes with enhanced protection when compared to other ‘children’s’ lenses. With two product package offerings: Standard or Premium, parents can rest easy knowing that their child’s eyes are protected all day.
