Drivewear Polarized Transition Lenses a Big Hit with our Patients

By Phillippe Jubuisson – Optician at Shady Grove Eye and Vision Care

Transitions lenses quickly adjust from being clear lenses indoors to sunglasses outdoors and back. This convenience is appreciated by many people, but historically Transitions lenses didn’t provide the protection from glare that polarized lenses offered. Transition lenses also have the disadvantage of not darkening behind the glass of a car windshield.

Introducing Drivewear; the first polarized lenses that darken outside as well as behind the car windshield. In low light, or overcast conditions, they are designed to maximize the amount of light entering the eye to make driving easier. Behind the windshield in normal daylight conditions the lenses change, removing excess light that might cause glare or visual discomfort and enhancing the colors of traffic lights, enabling better signal recognition. Outside in bright light Drivewear lenses darken for maximum filtration of excess light and glare, providing comfortable sunglass vision.

Drivewear is available in single vision, bifocal and multifocal (progressive) lenses.

Feedback we have received from patients indicates they love the Drivewear lenses, specifically the ability of Drivewear to change based on changing lighting conditions to meet their needs. They tell us they can walk in and out of their car and enter a store without having to remove the glasses or switch to another pair.
