The new generation of Transitions Signature lenses are equipped with GEN 8 breakthrough technology.

Always pushing boundaries, Transitions Optical challenged its research team to develop a light intelligent photochromic lens that was darker outdoors, clear indoors, with improved reaction and fade back speeds, all without compromising on protection and quality.

Featuring dynamic polarization, Transitions XTRActive Polarized breaks the paradigm of conventional polarization and traditional photochromics. The lens is clear and unpolarized indoors. In bright light outdoors, Transitions XTRActive Polarized quickly darkens and also becomes polarized.

Transitions XTRActive Polarized is extra dark outdoors, even in hot temperatures. The darker it gets, the more it becomes polarized to reduce glare outdoors and provide a better vision experience. Transitions XTRActive Polarized darkens in the car.
