Younger Optics Releases Transitions® XTRActive® New Generation Lenses

XTRActive New Generation

Younger Optics, has just announced the availability of Transitions® XTRActive® New Generation lenses, in five materials. Now with faster activation and faster fadeback, Transitions XTRActive New Generation lenses are available immediately from Younger Optics in gray & brown in hard resin, polycarbonate, high index 1.67, high index 1.74, and Trilogy® materials. Eye care practices may order them through optical laboratories in the US, Canada, and Latin America.

Transitions XTRActive New Generation lenses start clear indoors, darken moderately in the car, and achieve extra darkness outdoors in the sun. The New Generation of XTRActive photochromic dyes is formulated to achieve an ultra-dark activation state even faster than before. XTRActive New Generation lenses are always active, meaning they provide a hint of protective tint in bright indoor locations, and are helpful in reducing blue light exposure to the eyes from electronic devices as well as the sun. XTRActive New Generation lenses may be worn for the entire day: daytime, night-time, indoors, outdoors, and while driving.

For light-sensitive patients, Transitions XTRActive New Generation lenses are a convenient everyday lens for protection from bright light, and now the activation and fadeback responds more quickly when the patient moves between indoor and outdoor spaces. Current XTRActive wearers will definitely want to upgrade to the latest XTRActive New Generation technology, and current Transitions Signature wearers looking for darker activation may find that XTRActive New Generation is their preferred choice for their next pair of eyewear.

Transitions XTRActive lenses are already preferred by many for their excellent performance in warm weather, and for their beautiful neutral gray & brown colors. Transitions XTRActive New Generation lenses build on that popularity by increasing the agility of the photochromic performance. With this product expansion, eye care professionals may significantly heighten the satisfaction of patients who wear photochromic lenses.

Transitions XTRActive New Generation lenses from Younger Optics are available immediately in gray & brown in hard resin, polycarbonate, high index 1.67, high index 1.74, and Trilogy® materials, through wholesale optical laboratories.
