Do Transitions®️ work in a car?

Good question, and we know this is something that we know will be very helpful! There are XTRActive Transitions®️ lenses that do darken while you're in a car, but not all light-adaptive lenses do.

Transition lenses are UV-ray sensitive, meaning that exposure to UV rays allows the lenses to darken. When in a car, there is less exposure to UV rays since the windshields of most cars block the driver and passengers from UV ray exposure.

Most light-adaptive lenses won't darken in a car for this reason and will be most effective while outside or in an environment in which UV rays are not blocked by something else.

Please note: We offer XTRActive Transitions®️ lenses that are available on select frames. These lenses will darken in a car.
