Xperio® Transitions® performance sunwear now available in polycarbonate

June 2, 2012

KBco and Transitions Optical, Inc. announced Xperio® Transitions® performance sun lenses are now available in a polycarbonate offering.

The polarized sun lenses adapt to changing light conditions, improve contrast and reduce blinding glare from sunlight reflected by objects, water or snow.

Xperio Transitions performance lenses are available in single vision prescriptions ranging from -10.00 to +6.00 in gray and are ideal for outdoor activities such as fishing and water activities, running, hiking and mountain biking.

“By expanding the availability to a polycarbonate product, we’re providing the benefits of a polarized photochromic, but with added safety benefits in a light-weight, impact resistant material,” said Rick Piper, senior vice president, sales and marketing, KBco.

“Xperio Transitions sun lenses are already a popular, fantastic product for fishing and water activities,” said Grady Lenski, global director, Transitions sunwear. “By expanding availability to a polycarbonate – we can further build the audience and provide more people an adaptive sunwear option to help them pursue their passion.”

Polycarbonate lenses are ideal for high-impact sports as they are made from a tough, lightweight plastic. The lenses are thinner than most plastic lenses and are impact resistant, while still protecting against harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays by blocking 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays.
