Complementing its new Live the Good Light™ television commercial and consumer campaign, Transitions Optical has launched the new “Sunrisers Contest.”

The contest gives consumers and eyecare professionals a chance to win a grand prize trip that allows them to experience some of the world’s best sunrises.

By participating, consumers can enter to win a trip to Machu Picchu, Peru and eyecare professionals can win a trip to Vision Expo West 2017 in Las Vegas.

To participate, eyecare practices must follow these steps:

  1. Visit to register in the Sunrisers Contest. (Only one person from a practice is required to register their team.)
    1. Encourage patients to enter the consumer Sunrisers Contest and mention their practice name as a referral at before August 6, 2017. To enter, patients can nominate themselves or someone they know who lives the good light, seizes every opportunity and lives every moment without limitations. A short video or written submission is required to participate. While there is only one grand prize, consumers will also be entered to win weekly drawings for a free pair of eyeglasses with Transitions® lenses.
    2. Earn a point for every patient who enters the contest and mentions their practice name as a referral. The eyecare practice in Canada that earns the most points will win a trip for two to Vision Expo West 2017, including roundtrip airfare, hotel lodging for two nights, $1,000 in spending money and a helicopter ride at sunrise over the Grand Canyon.
