Transitions® GEN S™ - The New Lens Standard

Transitions® GEN S™ is the latest giant leap of technology from Transitions®. It’s an innovation that goes beyond the boundaries of traditional lenses and sets a new standard for the future of the optical lens industry.

It is the fastest dark lens, reaching category 3 level of darkness in 25 seconds.

Transitions GEN S is available in 8 exclusive colors, including a brand-new addition: Transition GEN S Ruby.

Transitions GEN S lenses provide ultimate light protection, darkening outdoors, blocking 100% UVA & UVB rays, and filtering up to 32% blue-violet light in the clear state and up to 85% when activated.

The New Varilux XR Series Lens

The first eye-responsive progressive lens. Powered by artificial intelligence, the Varilux® XR Series™ lens can predict how patients look at things, so their experience instant sharpness in motion and seamless switches from near to far.

Varilux XR Design

The Best Overall Progressive Lens¹

Varilux® XR Series™ is the first eye-responsive progressive lens² powered by behavioral artificial intelligence. Beyond prescription and eye physiology the design now considers visual behavior, a prerequisite for fast and precise eye movements.

The technologies behind the XR lens:

  • Nanoptix – Stable vision in motion.
  • XTend – Extended volume of vision within arm’s reach.
  • XR-motion – Instant sharpness even in motion.

Lenses are optimized according to the visual behavior profile.

  • Binocular vision optimization where it matters.
  • Accurate positioning of the focus zones.
  • Optimized sharp binocular vision.
  • Minimized disparities of power and astigmatism.
  • Lens ocular navigation as natural and effortless as possible.

Varilux XR Track

Delivers superior results - up to 25% larger reading area.

Varilux XR Track offers all of the benefits of the XR Design plus a larger near vision zone. A unique patient test on an Eyeruler 2 giving the ECP the Near Vision Behavior (NVB). Patients perform a simulated reading task with an Eyeruler 2 Near Vision Behavior measurement.

The 4-in-1 in-store personalized measurement evaluates the visual and postural behavior of the patient, reproducing the rapid eye movement during a near vision task.

4 parameters measured to personalize the near vision zone:

  • Gaze lowering
  • Reading Distance
  • Lateral Offset
  • Visual Behavior

The protocol results in an individualized 7-digit code that gathers the 4 individual parameters. Thanks to this simple measurement, wearers may enjoy accelerated fluidity and adaptation.
