Transitions Photochromic Lenses Available in New Graphite Green

Essilor, the world’s leading manufacturer of optical lenses, and Transitions Optical have partnered to develop and launch the new Transitions® SignatureTM VII lenses in a graphite green color. Using a special dye formulation, these new lenses provide natural vision and true color perception in a variety of light conditions.

Eyecare professionals and patients around the world might recognize the iconic green color of the lens, as it dates back to the 1930s when the color was applied to sunglasses worn by U.S. Navy pilots. The gray-green color was originally developed based on research that showed how human eyes respond differently to various colors in the visual spectrum. The gray-green lenses were then formulated to emphasize certain colors to help pilots locate and track objects against a variety of outdoor backgrounds such as earth, sky and water.  Think Tom Cruise in “Top Gun” with his Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses–that’s the lens we’re talking about!

With Transitions Graphite Green Transitions lenses, you will see life in the best light with lenses that automatically adjust from clear to dark and every shade in between.
