A Giant Leap in Technology

What makes Transitions® GEN S™ lenses truly remarkable is the advanced technology behind them. After five years of research and development, including the testing of over 100,000 lenses, Transitions® GEN S™ uses advanced symbiotic technology where the dyes and matrix are specifically designed to seamlessly interact together. The new matrix architecture strikes the right balance between soft and hard spaces, facilitating dye performance while maintaining robustness. The new super-charged dyes absorb more energy, improving the kinetics inside the matrix and providing the right balance between vivid colours and seamless responsiveness.
