New kind of contact lenses are now on the market

News

Transition prescription glasses have been around for years. They darken up when their wearers go outside on a sunny day.

Now you can get the same effect with contact lenses. Dr. Kevin Gardner says transition contacts are ideal if you plan on going outside for part or all day.

“And they protect from UV light and just give you a better comfort and people that that have you know have worn transition glasses in the past now have a contact lens option,” says Optometrist Dr. Kevin Gardner.

Once the wearer comes back inside, the contacts lighten back up.
