Celebrating Eyewear Innovation: A Journey through Transitions, Polarised and Mirrored Lenses

In the ever-evolving world of eyewear, Transitions lenses and polarised lenses have become significant game-changers, each with their own distinct benefits. However, another exciting twist has been added with the introduction of mirrored lenses.


In this article, we'll delve into the transformative features of Transitions lenses, the glare-reducing power of polarised lenses, and the stylish allure of mirrored lenses. Continue reading to explore how these technologies seamlessly integrate, enhancing the eyewear experience in their own unique ways.


Understanding Transitions Lenses: Adaptability Meets Convenience

For those who are not already aware, Transitions lenses are a special type of spectacle lens that are embedded with photochromic technology, providing them with unique ability to darken when exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light, such as sunlight, and return to a clear state indoors or in low-light conditions. This dynamic feature allows them to act as both prescription glasses and sunglasses, eliminating the need for carrying separate pairs for different environments.



Convenience at Its Best:

The versatility of Transitions lenses makes them incredibly convenient for anyone who wears glasses. Whether you're a fashionista, a sports enthusiast, someone with an active lifestyle or regularly drive, these lenses adapt effortlessly to your everyday activities. Gone are the days of constantly swapping between your prescription glasses and sunglasses. Transitions lenses save you the hassle while ensuring optimal eye protection.


Protecting Your Eyes from Harmful UV Rays:

UV rays from the sun can be detrimental to our eyes if exposed for prolonged periods. Transitions lenses not only provide excellent vision correction but also act as a shield against harmful UV rays. Prolonged exposure to UV light can increase the risk of multiple eye conditions, so with Transitions lenses, you can enjoy the great outdoors without compromising your eye health.


Stylish and Trendy Options:

Kelly Eyecare has an extensive range of fashionable frames that are available for Transitions lenses. Whether you prefer classic designs or contemporary styles, you can find frames that not only suit your face shape, but also complement your personal style.


Tints available in a range of colours


Polarised lenses: The Power of Glare Reduction

The primary benefit of polarised lenses is their ability to significantly reduce glare. Glare occurs when light reflects off flat, smooth surfaces, such as water, snow, roads, and sand creating an intense brightness, which can be uncomfortable and impair vision.


Polarised lenses contain a specific filter that blocks horizontally polarised light, effectively reducing glare and providing a clearer view of the surroundings, which is why they are an ideal choice particularly for those who enjoy outdoor sports.


Improved Visual Comfort:

By eliminating glare and providing UV protection, polarised lenses enhance visual comfort, especially in bright, sunny conditions. Whether you're driving, fishing, skiing, or simply spending time outdoors, polarised lenses reduce eye strain and fatigue, allowing you to enjoy your activities with greater ease.



Transitions and Polarised Lenses: Uniting the Best of Both Worlds

When Transitions lenses are integrated with polarising technology, wearers get the best of both worlds. They not only enjoy the convenience of photochromic lenses that adapt to changing light conditions, but also benefit from the glare reduction and enhanced visual clarity provided by polarised lenses.


The combination of Transitions and polarised lenses automatically adjust their tint based on UV exposure, darkening in sunlight and bright environments, while also blocking bothersome glare. The result is a pair of glasses that offer optimal UV protection, visual clarity, and a seamless experience whether you're driving, engaging in outdoor activities, or simply enjoying a leisurely walk, these lenses provide the ultimate eye protection and visual enhancement.



Here is company director Mike Kelly wearing his brand new Polarising Transitions lenses in his favourite Kilsgaard blue acetate frame. Mike says "These lenses are superb - the polarising level changes with the brightness as the lens darkens. Excellent clarity and convenience! Nice to have a frame that fits my beak of a nose without slipping down all the time too!"


Mirrored Transitions Lenses: A Fusion of Style and Functionality

In the world of eyewear innovation, mirrored Transitions lenses represent an exciting fusion of style and functionality. Mirrored lenses, known for their sleek and reflective appearance, add a touch of flair to your glasses while enhancing visual comfort.


When combined with Transitions technology, these lenses take versatility to a new level. Whether you're strolling under the sun or stepping indoors, mirrored Transitions lenses adapt seamlessly, providing both protection and a fashionable statement. Embrace a personalised and chic eyewear experience as mirrored Transitions lenses further enrich the realm of adaptable glasses.




Here's what Mike Kelly had to say about his mirrored Transitions lenses: "These transitions varifocal XR lenses are excellent! And the green mirror effect turns them into a fun pair of summer sunnies. They go clear in shops and restaurants so no need to cart another pair around. Highly recommended."
