Photochromic lenses

Self-tinting lenses adapt to the respective lighting conditions

These intelligent lenses adjust to changing lighting conditions, have a contrast-enhancing effect and are therefore also ideal for sport and outdoor activities.

A rapid fade back indoors is accompanied by a swift light darkening in the outdoors, to provide your eyes with the best protection from any given light conditions.

Generally known, UV rays damage our eyes - OPHTHALMICA's photochromic lenses help to protect your eyes. That is why all our photochromic lenses from the market leader Transitions Optical have effective 100% UVA and UVB radiation protection.

The NuPolar polarization eliminates glare from the road or the hood. Transitions' self-tinting technology adapts the color and tint to the changing light conditions.


  • The lenses adjust their ideal degree of tinting to every driving situation
  • Fast darkening and brightening - very short reaction time

A copper tone lets you better recognize traffic signals in bright sunlight. A dark reddish brown is especially pleasant in strong sunlight.
