In addition to protecting your eyes from debris, the lenses will adapt to the light conditions along the way. When the lenses are exposed to the sun, they adjust proportionally to the amount of light. For example, on a bright but cloudy day, the lenses may only darken halfway through. So you can wear the same pair of glasses day and night for optimal vision. They are also available without a prescription if your vision does not need to be corrected.
Transitions lenses are available in grey, brown or green.
