Transitions® XTRActive Polarized lenses

Younger Optics Europe announces the launch of the most advanced photochromic lens technology from Transitions® – Transitions® XTRActive Polarized - the first lens with variable polarization photochromic element.


Transitions® XTRActive Polarized lens is a combination of two revolutionary photochromic technologies: New XTRActive and variable polarization. The resulting lens is clear when is not activated but becomes a dark grey polarized lens with 90% polarization efficiency when it is in full activation. Transitions® XTRActive Polarized lenses will benefit all ophthalmic lens users but especially people with higher light sensitivity and people who spend more time outdoors. The variable polarization element will dramatically diminish blinding glare outside greatly enhancing the comfort and quality of vision.

Transitions® XTRActive Polarized lenses are available in semi‑finished spherical blanks in optical materials with refractive indices:

  • 1.50
  • Poly 1.586
  • 1.60
  • 1.67

which enables optical laboratories to manufacture the widest range of single vision and progressive lenses.
