Transitions® Signature™Lenses

Function & Fashion


When you visit Optical Illusions in Del Mar you will experience sensory overload if you are into designer eyewear. We carry the most exclusive brands and have all the latest styles. So you just might think we are just about fashion… Think again! We are serious about caring for your eyes! We carry only the best quality lenses. You would perhaps not notice the difference but the difference to the health of your eyes IS impacted by the quality of your lenses.

One way we care for your eyes is by offering Transitions® Signature™Lenses. Seeing 20/20 is great, but healthy sight means more than that.  UV rays, glare and eye fatigue are challenges our eyes face daily.  Wearing Transitions® lenses, which adapt to changing light, can help you protect your eyes from all three challenges: UV rays, glare and eye fatigue!

And it’s not just about protection. It is about convenience too! With Transitions lenses your glasses and fabulous indoors and outdoors in all kinds of light! So convenient! Glasses to sunglasses then quickly back to glasses again. The most useful innovation for active eyeglass and sunglass wearers everywhere!

Transitions®  Newest & Most Responsive Adaptive Lenses 

The lenses are fully clear indoors – but outside, they’re more responsive than ever thanks to our exclusive Chromea7™ photochromic technology. They are more reactive to UV light so they get darker in more conditions, including bright sun, partially sunny, cloudy, and everything in between. They also adapt to indirect light – such as light reflected from buildings, cars, and many other surfaces.

  • Fully clear indoors and at night
  • Fast fade back speed
  • Block 100% of UVA & UVB rays
  • Fit any prescription and frame
  • Suitable for any age including children


Here’s how it works…

There are different lenses to suit your lifestyle too! Find yourself in and out of your car all day? then Transitions® Xtractive® Lenses might be the ones for you:



All day your eyes are bombarded by light.  All day Transitions XTRActive lenses adapt to help protect your eyes from fatigue and strain caused by UV light and bright glare outdoors, and even activate behind the windshield.  Indoors they have a comfortable hint of tint to shield your eyes from strain caused by harsh indoor light.

Transitions Optical Wins International Award for Campaign to Raise Eye Health in African-American Communities

Transitions Optical, Inc. and its trade public relations agency, Havas PR, have been honored by the International Public Relations Association (IPRA) with a Golden World Award for their campaign to raise eye health awareness in African-American communities. The initiative – which included an extensive partnership with the National Council of Negro Women (NCNW) to educate at-risk African Americans within their local communities – was named “Community Relations Campaign of the Year” in the Agency category. The IPRA’s Golden World Awards for Excellence in Public Relations are the world’s top public relations awards for agencies and communications departments.

With research confirming that African Americans are at greater risk for eye damage linked to UV exposure, yet often have less access to adequate eye care, Transitions Optical partnered with the NCNW to help reach African-American communities about their eye health risks. Throughout 2012, Transitions Optical worked with local NCNW chapters to distribute eye health education during community events throughout the country. A 2013 nationwide survey of consumers showed a 29 percent increase over 2011 in the number of African Americans who understood that their ethnicity could put them at risk for eye health issues – indicating that Transitions Optical’s efforts could have played a role in this behavioral change.


Transitions Optical and Grammy and CMA Award Winning Music Artist Darius Rucker Bring Healthy, Enhanced Vision to Hundreds of Nashville Area Music Students

Brand Ambassador Darius Rucker Explains the Importance of Vision in His Life to Students at Pearl Cohn Entertainment Magnet High School

Transitions Optical and Visionworks Team Up with the Country Music Association to Provide Complimentary Vision Screenings and Eyewear
PINELLAS PARK, Fla., November 7, 2013 – In an ongoing effort to raise awareness about the importance of healthy, enhanced vision, Transitions Optical, along with brand ambassador and Transitions® adaptive lenses™ wearer Darius Rucker and industry partner Visionworks®, brought free eye care services to several hundred students at Pearl Cohn Entertainment Magnet High School prior to the 47th Annual CMA Awards in Nashville, Tenn. To underscore the importance of vision in reading and playing music, Rucker shared his own personal story with the students about the role vision has in his life, both professionally and personally.

“Being a part of this event with Transitions Optical and Visionworks was a great experience,” said Darius Rucker. “Vision is a huge part of what I do not only in the studio and on stage, but also when I’m spending time with my family. When I first realized I needed glasses, my eye doctor recommended Transitions lenses based on my busy lifestyle, since they effortlessly change from clear to dark to enhance my vision and keep my eyes comfortable, even in bright glare. Meeting with the students at Pearl Cohn was an awesome opportunity to make a positive impact in these kids’ lives, by reminding them not to take their vision for granted.”
