Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses offer an exceptional UV protection, sharper vision, larger view and more vivid colors, enabling people everywhere to learn, to work, to express themselves to the fullest. Specifically designed for very bright light and reflective glare exposure, Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses become extra dark and achieve a polarization efficiency of up to 90% outdoors, which is similar to polarized sunglasses. They also block 100% of UVA and UVB rays. Indoors, under lower light intensity, the lenses remain clear with a hint of protective tint. Since they are not polarized indoors, wearers can use their digital devices without having to worry about a polarized lens blocking their view of the screen, and still receive the benefit of Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses, which protect from harsh indoors lights, filtering up to 34% of harmful blue light indoors.
