My First Pair of Transition Glasses with the help from IRIS

I got my first pair of transition glasses! 

GUYS, they are blowing my mind. I’ve had them for about a month now and they are literally the coolest thing I ownnnnn. I can’t get enough of them! 

Before I got them into my hands I started to research more about transition glasses. I read everything I could online and then immediately made an appointment at my local IRIS to pick out and order my first pair. Leading up I really thought about the colour and design I wanted to go for. Because let’s be honest, it’s such a cool technology for eye wear, to own prescription glasses and have the lenses transition into sunglasses. How easy is that, to just walk out of the house wearing your prescriptions and not even having to worry about changing into sunglasses or even remembering. 

The day of my appointment, I went to the Transition Lenses website and did a virtual try first to get an idea of what might look good and what I might like. Then I went to IRIS and I took my time browsing all of the frames. Any of the prescription frames in your local IRIS location can be transformed into transition glasses. 

So you knowwww it took me a long time to really go through them. I had fun checking out different styles, for myself I really wanted to go outside the box. Pick something that I normally wouldn’t ever pick and really bring personality to my transitions. Something cool to look at for a really cool lense.

I found these really sweet black framed Kate Spades, sprinkled all over the black frames are white and yellow centred daisies. They made my heart flutter when I tried them on. They are the cutest frames I’ve ever seen. I loved them so much. They fit perfectly and they were so comfortable. 

I spoke with one of the IRIS employees who really helped talk me through the pick of transition glasses. Because depending on the frame you choose, you’ll find a transition colour that matches the frame. There are 7 different colours to pick from for your lenses Grey, Brown, Emerald Green, Sapphire, Brown, Amethyst & Graphite Green. So you can choose which one you’d like to better match your style & colour of frame. I went with the Grey to match mine but I also added that I am light sensitive so they customised that for me as well. 

Something else you can custom is glare reduction, mirrored frames, light sensitivity with extra protection & driving lenses as well that help adapt from behind the wheel for a picture perfect drive. 

Once I received my transitions, IRIS helped measure and aligned them with my eyes and nose and ears. They tightened them up and off I went. 

When I say they were so comfortable, I don’t just mean on my nose and ears, resting on my face. I also mean for my eyes! 

As soon as I walked out of IRIS I could slightly feel the transition begin, nothing dramatic or intense which is something I really liked. My transition glasses give my eyes time to literally transition. Which is exactly what transitions do, they slowly transition your prescription lense into sunglasses. Gradually, from indoors to cloudy days to direct sunlight. It is such an intelligent lense. It blows my mind. They are naturally comfortable for my eyes and not so stark. I love them. 

I have to say that I squint so much less, I always have UV protection on my face without worrying or forgetting, my eyes are always protected. 

After some time I almost forget I even have sunglasses on as well as my prescription. And you guys, I don’t want to get too excited but they also offer transition contacts. Like, what! I’m almost intrigued to get these for Owen to wear while outside playing sports

If you have any questions about making the transition to transition glasses hahaha, please feel free to reach out to me or even better make a call to your local IRIS and make an appointment today!
