Transitions Optics, leader in Photochromics, launches Transitions XTRActive! ~ Turn up the dark!!

Filed under: Eye Health,Lens Designs,News — Tags: , , , — admin @ 12:02 pm

XTRActive is the solution to a gap in the market that requires everyday lenses that react to both UV and visible light. They are the darkest everyday lenses (90% tint at 23°C) and they even react behind the windscreen (up to 50% at 27°C), which is great news as the biggest complaint Glasses4Less gets about Transitions lenses is that they don’t react enough in the car.

Happier motoring. New Transitions® XTRActive™ lenses are our first everyday lenses that darken behind the windscreen of a car. By adjusting to both UV and visible light, Transitions XTRActive lenses activate to a comfortable level of tint for driving. Your will appreciate the versatility compared to an ordinary clear lens.

The newest addition to the line of Transitions everyday lenses, available in a range of materials and indices, gives you even more choice of suitable lens options.

Note: Darkening of Transitions XTRActive lenses behind a windscreen of a car is influenced by several factors including shape and inclination of the windscreen, windscreen transmission, driver position, lateral windows.

Survey reveals high risk of accidents due to winter glare

Filed under: Eye Health,News — Tags: , , , , , , — admin @ 1:14 pm

Recommending the correct eyewear to provide comfort and protection from UV is all too often forgotten once the summer months are out of the way. It is, however, vital that Opticians remind patients that UV damage and the discomfort, and indeed danger, of glare are not just summer problems but issues that occur throughout the year.

Research commissioned by Transitions Optical has revealed a range of incidents that have resulted directly from winter glare with more than a quarter of those asked saying they had suffered injury or an accident because of it.

  • Almost a third (31%) have had a ‘very near miss’ with busy road traffic
  • More than one in five (22%) have walked into a stationary object causing injury
  • More than one in ten (11%) have missed obstacles on the floor
  • Nearly two thirds (65%) have ignored someone because they couldn’t see them

Transitions lenses are designed to offer the defence eyes need in all seasons, in the winter protecting against glare from wet surfaces, ice and snow. Protecting against UV damage is even more essential for those who spend a significant amount of time outdoors such as children, sports enthusiasts and those with outdoor occupations.

Reminding patients of the importance of protecting their vision throughout the year is of vital importance. Glasses4Less is proud to recommend and use Transitions lenses.

Research conducted October 2010 with 100 people via Survey Monkey on behalf of Transitions Optical

Looking for something different? New products & Christmas gift ideas at

Filed under: Ecommerce,Gift Ideas,News,Spectacle Accessories — admin @ 11:30 am

It can’t be denied…The Christmas rush will soon be upon us and the same questions and problems confront us year in and year out! “What can I buy that’s different, unusual and won’t break the bank?”  For the festive season Glasses4Less has added  new ranges to our Spectacle Chains and Spectacle Danglers as well as some limited edition items to our Spectacle Cases section. We have tried to select more unusal designer designs rather than the limited, cheap, boring, dusty offerings often encountered on the high street, where the spectacle case or cord seems to be a purely functional item. The great thing about our Hilco range of Spectacle Chains is that they can be un-clipped from the rubbers that fit on the spectacle sides and clipped together to make a pretty necklace which the ladies here in the office just love!

New Product Line in Frame Spares & Repairs! Replacement Plastic Temple Tips

Building on the success of our introduction  of a Frame Spares & Repairs section in the later part of 2009, Glasses4Less has now added replacement Plastic Temple Tips to the section by popular demand. The main difficulty with selling frame part such as Nose Pads, Screws, Nuts & Bolts and Temp Tips is the enormous range of colours and sizes available.

We wanted to sell as broard a range as possible without making choices complicated for our customers whilst shopping on the Glasses4Less website. Once again we turned to Hilco Europe for our optical solutions. The Plastic Temple Tips are available in three of the most popular core sizes, 1.6mm, 1.4mm & 1.1mm for ultra thin sides, often found on titanium rimless frames.

Keeping things simple we have also opted for the most popular colours, Black, Brown, Clear & Tortoise. We believe we now have the makings of a comprehensive collection of frame parts available for the consumer to buy on-line and don’t forget to visit our Downloadable Forms & Documents section for simple instructions on carrying out simple spectacle repairs using your newly purchased spare parts.
