How ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ work
- The lenses are composed of a material called senofilcon A, a material already used in Acuvue® Oasys lenses that’s widely known for its exceptional performance when it comes to both comfort and vision correction.
- As the molecules pick up on light rays, a chemical reaction occurs that causes them to change their structure.
- At full activation, the lenses can block up to 70% of visible light. Johnson & Johnson Vision scientists conducted numerous clinical studies before they finally found the “just-right” level of photochromic concentration.
- “The moment the UV or bright light rays are removed, the lens will begin to change again,” Fadli says. “The photochromic molecules start closing, and the lens begins returning to its original clear color.” The lenses fade back from dark to clear in about 90 seconds, when going from the outdoors to the indoors.
