What are photochromic lenses?

Photochromic spectacle lenses – also known as light-adaptive lenses – are familiar to many glasses-wearers but the many benefits they deliver are not! From enhancing everyday routines and outdoor activities to promoting eye health by providing UV protection and reducing glare, light adaptive lenses offer a range of advantages including comfort and convenience to help you live your lifestyle.


Ultimate convenience

One of the stand-out benefits of light-adaptive lenses is that they remove the hassle of constantly swapping between regular glasses and sunglasses. As they seamlessly adapt to changing light conditions, you’ll enjoy ultimate convenience no matter if you’re running errands or walking up a mountain.


Reliable vision

Photochromic lenses, available from quality lens manufacturers such as HOYA, also offer consistent performance across different weather conditions so you can have comfortable and clear vision in all light situations. On top of this, reduced glare means that you can experience a vibrant life without worrying about your vision.


Adapts to life

Light-adaptive lenses can minimise glare and provide UV protection, attenuate interruptions to your day and help you maintain focus by dynamically adjusting to changing light conditions. Combining the advantages of UV protection with prescription lenses, light-adaptive lenses – such as those of HOYA’s Sensity range – offer the convenience of 2-in-1.


A diverse range

Not only do photochromic lenses reduce the need to squint, but they are also available in a range of stylish colours to suit your individual preferences. Whether it’s a mirror coating that is more intense in the light, or extra darkness when outdoors you can select lenses according to your required performance and to complement the look.


In addition to these benefits, light-adaptive lenses also provide a convenient 2-in-1 solution that removes the need to acquire a separate pair of frames. From convenient vision across different environments to protection against UV rays and providing modular blue light control when using digital devices, these lenses cater to a wide range of lifestyles and needs.
