Defy the Glare – NEW Transitions XTRActive Polarized lenses

Presenter:  Herb Fletcher

Different types of light create challenges to our vision. In very demanding light situations, such as very bright light or reflective glare, our vision can be compromised creating a poor experience. Exposure to these types of light situations can also amplify daily eye fatigue, contributing to associated symptoms such as dry eyes, itchy eyes, headache and eye strain. In the long term, repetitive exposure to intense light can create a cumulative effect and could have an impact on eye health. Transitions® XTRActive® Polarized™ lenses are uniquely designed to provide extra light protection for eyeglass wearers who are frequently exposed to bright light and reflective glare.


2:30 - 3:30 pm
