NEW: Acuvue Oasys with Transitions
Now available in online in Canada here at Contactsforless.ca, this innovative product has been long-awaited by many contact lens wearers. ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ is the first lens of its kind. These lenses utilize ACUVUE’s Light Intelligent Technology, filtering and reducing the eyes exposure to bright indoor and outdoor light while also cutting the blue light produced by out screens.
Transitions are activated by either UV or HEV light and these lens are ideal from people who are sensitive to light and need a little protection when wearing sunglasses is not feasible. It is important to note that these lenses are not a replacement for sunglasses as they do not protect the entire eye from UV rays, nor do they transition when inside a car, it is recommended for the lenses to be worn with non-prescription sunglasses when possible.
How does Transitions look on my eye? Does it get dark?
The lenses become darker when activated by UV and/or HEV light. They were specifically designed to provide patient benefits while minimizing the change to the appearance of the eye. While outdoors, the level of activation is always changing in response to the light, so in most situations the lens isn’t in the darkest state. These lenses also fade back to clear quickly when you come inside.
Is this new lens offering a sunglasses replacement? Can you use them with sunglasses?
ACUVUE OASYS® with Transitions™ are not intended to be used as a replacement for sunglasses. However, they can be worn with non-prescription sunglasses. While these lenses do provide UV protection to the areas they cover, other parts of the eye and surrounding areas are still exposed to UV light. Sunglasses help to protect the entire eye.
Does the lens activate in indoor light or only outdoor UV light?
The lens activates in both indoor and UV light. Even when this lens appears clear, it is working and adapting to different lighting conditions.
Does it work behind the windshield?
While photochromic lenses react to UV light, car windshields block nearly 100% of UV light. It is important to note that ACUVUE OASYS® with Transitions™ are not a replacement for sunglasses, but they can be worn with non-prescription sunglasses.
