Transitions Optical Launches Facebook Virtual Try-On Experience

(PRESS RELEASE) PINELLAS PARK, FL – Transitions Optical has partnered with Facebook to create an augmented reality try-on experience using the Facebook camera. The new Facebook virtual try-on from Transitions Optical is a first-of-its-kind social media experience that allows users to see themselves in all 13 Transitions lens colors – including Transitions Signature lenses style colors and Transitions XTRActive style mirrors. Users can tap through the different Transitions lens colors, and switch between indoor and outdoor settings.

Users can activate the Transitions Facebook Try-on by clicking on a link that’s on the Transitions Facebook Page or by scanning the QR code with their Facebook app (to find the QR code scanner, simply type “QR code” in the top of the Facebook search bar). The user can take a photo or video selfie to share on Facebook, and the media can be saved to the camera roll and shared via text, email, or other social networks.

“The best way to interest consumers in Transitions lenses is to demonstrate them in action, and the new Virtual Try-On provides Facebook users the opportunity to view the different Transitions lens offerings right from their phone,” said Patience Cook, director North America marketing, Transitions Optical. “With the variety of color and mirror options available to try-on, eyecare professionals can encourage patients to interact with the experience and see how Transitions lenses can fit into their personal style.”

Eyecare professionals can visit to download resources and social creative with draft posts to share on their page.
