(Press Release) Torrance, CA – Transitions Signature polycarbonate composite lens technology has been expanded to include FT35 bifocal lenses and 7 x 28 trifocal lenses in both gray and brown. This is in addition to the FT28 bifocal lenses released last year. This means even more segmented multifocal lens wearers can enjoy the unsurpassed photochromic performance of Transitions Signature VII lenses.
Why is this expansion important for eye care practices?
Transitions Signature is the photochromic lens of choice for many patients, both for fashion and to enhance comfort. This expansion provides an opportunity for eye care professionals to significantly heighten the satisfaction of patients who wear polycarbonate multifocals. Eight out of 10 patients prefer Transitions Signature lenses to clear lenses, and now eyecare professionals don't have to find another option when these bifocal and trifocal wearers request a Transitions brand lens. They can dispense authentic Transitions Signature lenses in a polycarbonate composite material.
Just how significant is the market for bifocal and trifocal lenses?
Approximately one in five pairs of lenses sold today are segmented multifocals, and a majority of those are bifocals and trifocals. “Despite growing demand for progressive and digital designs, there is still a significant demand in the market for segmented lenses,” said Catherine Rauscher, global director for lenscaster partners, Transitions Optical.
What is unique about this product?
“Younger Optics and Transitions Optical have developed a polycarbonate composite lens that incorporates a thin photochromic front surface bifocal or trifocal layer made of Trivex — resulting in a lens delivering Transitions Signature VII performance and superb segment cosmetics in a product that is surfaced, polished, edged and dispensed just like a clear polycarbonate lens,” said David Rips, president and CEO of Younger Optics.
Transitions Signature polycarbonate composite lenses are now available in FT28 and FT35 bifocals and 7 x 28 trifocals, in both gray and brown, exclusively from Younger Optics through any optical laboratory. Technical specifications can be referenced at youngeroptics.com/transitions.
