TRANSITIONS

Signature GEN 8 Style Colors

Transitions Signature GEN 8 lenses are now available in four new style colors: amber, amethyst, emerald, and sapphire. The GEN 8 lens portfolio now features seven colors, including the existing iconic style colors of gray, brown, and graphite green.

According to the company, Transitions Signature GEN 8 lenses offer the best performance ever on style colors, with faster light activation and fade back than the Transitions Signature VII—as well as indoor-to-outdoor protection against harmful UV and blue light.

The expansion will also include all Varilux Digital Designs, including Varilux X, for a wider frame selection for presbyopes. TransitionsPRO.com/FreeStyle VISION EXPO BOOTH: LP4413
