Smart Blue Filter Lenses - Eyezen and Transitions

Smart Blue Filter, Crizal Prevencia AR, and new Transitions Lenses

We now offer several new types of single vision prescription lenses. These lenses address two things: prescriptions in high powers and people that want glare and blue light protection for indoors and outside. These lenses are necessarily higher priced because they are digitally manufactured and that they all include Smart Blue Filter.

SMART BLUE FILTER (SBF) - Special lens materials with built-in blue light protection. Clear lenses with SBF provide over 20% protection from harmful blue light. Transitions lenses with SBF provide higher degrees of blue light protection. The addition of Crizal Prevencia AR coating to SBF lenses takes the protection levels even higher.

Here is our selection of lenses with Smart Blue Filter:

EYEZEN-0 - These are single vision digital lenses with SBF. If you have a high prescription, especially high plus powers, these lenses will be much thinner and lighter. These are available with various AR coating options including Crizal Prevencia. 

TRANSITIONS SIGNATURE 7 STOCK - Affordable polycarbonate lenses that are clear indoors and dark outside in a limited power range. Available in Grey, Brown, and Green. Available without AR coating or with Crizal Avance UV AR coating. (Not available with Crizal Prevencia AR.)

TRANSITIONS SIGNATURE 7 EYEZEN-0 DIGITAL - Custom digital lenses available in Poly or 1.67 High Index in Brown or Grey in just about any lens power. Available without AR or with several AR coatings including Crizal Prevencia.

TRANSITIONS VANTAGE EYEZEN-0 DIGITAL - Custom digital lenses available in Grey in just about any lens power. Available without AR or with several AR coatings including Crizal Prevencia.

TRANSITIONS EXTRActive EYEZEN-0 DIGITAL - Custom digital lenses available in Grey in just about any lens power. Available without AR or with several AR coatings including Crizal Prevencia.

EYEZEN+ Distance Vision Digital with Plus Power - These are distance vision lenses that have a bit of add or plus power in the bottom of the lenses to help with up close reading. The amount of plus power is determined by what age you are. Custom digital lenses available with a very wide variety of lens options.

Transitions lenses are a great solution for people that want glare protection. The new Transitions series of lenses include Smart Blue Filter which filters ~20% of harmful blue light. (All Transitions lenses filter UVA and B.) The wonderful thing about Transitions lenses is that the blue light protection they provide increases with the amount of blue light you are exposed to. Blue light comes from different sources and the biggest source is the sun:
