3 Reasons You Should Consider Transitions® Lenses For Your Child

With summer vacation just around the corner, now is a great time to think about adding additional eye sun protection for your whole family. Transitions® lenses are a great investment for your child’s eyewear—and their eye health.


1. Protection from UV Rays

Sunscreen is a basic for summer fun—but what about eye protection from the exact same UV rays that cause sunburns? Providing UV protection for younger eyes is especially important since children’s eyes are not fully developed to adequately filter UV rays. Transitions® lenses block 100% of UV rays while tinted sunglasses might not have any UV protection at all. Harmful UV rays can permeate tinted lenses and irritate the delicate skin around the eyes as well as the eye itself, leading to dry eyes, a feeling of grittiness, redness, headaches, and more.


2. Built-in Sunglasses Never Get Left Behind

With light intelligent Transitions® lenses, you don’t have to worry about your kid losing their sunglasses when they switch back to their everyday prescription glasses. Transitions® respond to the lighting conditions around the wearer, tinting darker automatically when the sun is its brightest. No need to dash back home to grab the sunglasses your kid left in their backpack when they always have the perfect level of tint, ready at all times. One pair does it all.


3. Options for Active Kids

Sometimes parents and guardians can be hesitant about investing in Transitions® lenses for their kids since some children are accident-prone. Fortunately, Transitions® lenses actually offer shatter- and impact-resistant materials that are best for children. Kids who plays sports might benefit from our polycarbonate or sports performance frames. Plus, with Vogue Optical’s unconditional warranty, you can feel secure knowing that if your kid’s glasses happen to get damaged, we’ve got you covered.
