A pair of glasses as unique as you are

There are two things you look for when you’re shopping for frames—style and comfort. Selecting and trying out your frames at an Opto-Réseau clinic means you’re assured of getting the right frames for your needs, lifestyle, complexion, and face shape.

And once you’ve chosen your frames, all that’s left is to decide what type of lenses and coatings you want.

But have you considered how your choice of lenses might affect the style of your new glasses when all is said and done?

It will if you opt for photochromic lenses.

Based on constantly improving technology, Transitions® Signature® GEN 8™ Style Colors lenses are a good example, providing not just protection from UV rays and harmful blue light, but also a modern colour palette with something for everyone.

A wide selection of shades to match lenses and frames to perfection

Although your frames’ more-understated look will be maintained when you’re inside (the lenses are completely clear indoors), the lens shade you’ve chosen will transform your frames when you step out into the sunshine.
Transitions® is available in classic grey and brown, but also comes in emerald, sapphire, amethyst, amber, and graphite green.

So when you’re picking your lenses, you can match them not only to the style and colour of your frames, but also to your complexion, with a shade that rocks and gives you the effect you’re looking for. If you have a paler complexion, for example, you might want to go with a little warmer lens shade.

At Opto-Réseau, our in-clinic experts will be thrilled to walk you through the options to help you find what’s right for you!

The best protection indoors or outdoors

In addition to the ever-increasing selection of lens colours, new photochromic lens developments, including Zeiss’s Photofusion®, Hoya’s Sensity®, and Transitions continue to push the technology boundaries year after year.

As a case in point, the constantly improving Transitions® Signature GEN 8 now gets even darker outdoors, is activated three times as quickly, and becomes clear three minutes sooner than the previous generation of lenses.

They’re more comfortable too. Not only does the technology reduce light sensitivity by 44%, it blocks 100% of all UVA and UVB radiation. Like Zeiss’s photochromic lenses, Transitions® also blocks 20% of harmful blue light indoors and close to 90% of harmful blue light outside. (That’s right—the sun is a source of blue light too.)

Try them and see for yourself (it’s been proven)

Photochromic lenses sound good, but you’re not sure you’re ready?

Just so you know: 9 out of 10 people who try out the technology now wonder how they ever got by without it. The fact is that 90% of those who choose Transitions® lenses buy them again when they change their classes.

So you can see the choice of one-of-a-kind glasses doesn’t begin and end with the choice of frames. A broad palette of possibilities (OK, tints) is available to personalize your new fashion accessory while guaranteeing your eyes all the comfort they deserve.
