Younger Optics has just announced the availability of Transitions® XTRActive® Polarized lenses with Camber™ Lens Technology. This means that eye care practices who offer Transitions® XTRActive® Polarized lenses can now dispense them in any of IOT’s Camber lens designs, including the new Camber Steady Plus Progressive lens designs. “This gives patients the opportunity to experience two brand-new lens technologies in one lens,” says David Rips, president & CEO of Younger Optics. “This is exciting news for eye care professionals who want to offer the latest and best in both freeform design and photochromics.”
What are the photochromic performance characteristics of these lenses?
Touted as the “best ever clear-to-polarized photochromic lens,” Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses start clear indoors, darken moderately in the car, achieve extra darkness and become polarized outdoors in the sun. The lenses dynamically polarize in direct sunlight, bringing bright, vivid colors, sharper vision, and significant glare reduction. We at Younger Optics are calling the performance “Clear to Extra-Wow.”
Eye care professionals who wish to learn about the photochromic science behind Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses are invited to download the booklet called The Art & Science of Transitions XTRActive Polarized: https://www.flipsnack.com/Younger/art-science-of-transitions-xtractive-polarized.html
What are the optical performance characteristics of these lenses?
Each Camber lens is the combination of the unique Camber lens blank made by Younger Optics and a Camber digital progressive lens design engineered by IOT. Camber lenses offer better vision in all zones, an improved reading area that is more spacious and easier to find, and faster adaptation for most wearers.

Why is this lens product important for eye care practices?
Camber lenses are highly favored by progressive-wearing patients for their excellent visual performance. To offer Camber lenses with Transitions XTRActive Polarized photochromics brings an even higher level of comfort and delight, especially for light-sensitive patients, because they provide extra protection from bright light indoors, in the car, and outdoors, as well as reduce discomfort from blinding glare outdoors.
What is the current availability?
Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses with Camber Technology are now available in gray in polycarbonate, Trilogy®, and high index 1.67 materials through Camber-authorized optical laboratories. For a list of Camber-authorized labs in North America, visit camberlens.com/labs
