Transitions Signature Flat Top 28 polycarbonate composite lenses are now available in both gray and brown. This means even more bifocal wearers can enjoy the unsurpassed photochromic performance of Transitions Signature VII lenses.
Why is this expansion important for eye care practices? Transitions Signature brown is the color of choice for many patients, both for fashion and to enhance contrast. This new lens provides an opportunity for eye care professionals to significantly heighten the satisfaction of patients who wear polycarbonate bifocals. Eight out of 10 patients prefer Transitions Signature lenses to clear lenses, and now eyecare professionals don’t have to find another option when bifocal wearers request a Transitions brand lens. They can dispense authentic Transitions Signature lenses in a polycarbonate composite material.
Just how significant is the market for bifocal lenses? Approximately one in five pairs of lenses sold today are segmented multi-focals, and a majority of those are bifocals. “Despite growing demand for progressive and digital designs, there is still a significant demand in the market for segmented lenses,” said Catherine Rauscher, global director for lenscaster partners, Transitions Optical. “Offering patients a choice of color in the leading photochromic technology will allow eyecare professionals to meet this demand and enhance their patients’ satisfaction.”
What is unique about this product? “Younger Optics and Transitions Optical have developed a polycarbonate composite lens that incorporates a thin photochromic front surface bifocal layer made of Trivex®—resulting in a lens delivering Transitions Signature VII performance and superb segment cosmetics in a product that is surfaced, polished, edged and dispensed just like a clear polycarbonate lens,” said David Rips, president and CEO of Younger Optics.
