If you’re a contact lens wearer who’s sensitive to light, Acuvue Oasys with Transitions may be perfect for you.

Similar to photochromatic lenses for eyewear, these contact lenses react to changes in light and darken in bright conditions. Here’s everything you need to know about these first-of-their-kind contact lenses that are available now at Crowfoot Vision Centre in Calgary.

Auto-Darkening for Your Eyes

Much like Transitions lenses for glasses, these contact lenses darken in the sun thanks to Transitions’ Light Intelligent Technology, a photochromatic additive mixed into the same hydrogel that makes Acuvue Oasys lenses so comfortable. When exposed to UV rays from the sun or blue light from a screen, the lenses darken, providing comfort and protection for your eyes.

Besides the comfort you can expect from all Acuvue Oasys lenses, here’s how Transitions contact lenses compare to clear lenses:

  • Visual recovery from bright situations is five seconds faster
  • Up to 38 per cent better colour contrast
  • Better vision in low light situations, including fewer halos and starbursts while driving

Are Acuvue Oasys with Transitions Contact Lenses Right for You?

Almost anybody can benefit from this new contact lens technology. While athletes who participate in outdoor sports find these contacts particularly useful, those who have issues with indoor and outdoor glare and light can benefit from them as well. Similarly, people who experience ocular migraines may find them more comfortable than regular contacts or glasses.
