Photochromic lenses darken to a sunglasses tint when exposed to sunlight, or UV ultraviolet, and return to a clear state when indoors, away from UV light.

Often referred to as transitions or react to lights, photochromic lenses are made of many lens materials including plastic, glass or polycarbonate. They are typically used as sunglasses that
conveniently switch from a clear lens indoors to a sunglass’s depth tint when outdoors.

They typically take around 30 seconds to fully darken and between two to five minutes to return to a clear state.

How Do
Photochromic Lenses Work?

Tiny molecules of silver halide and chloride are embedded within a photochromic lens which is invisible and clear until exposed to sunlight/UV rays.

A chemical process takes place when exposed to sunlight/UV and the molecules effectively move, change shape and absorb the light. This process changes the molecules and they darken to a sunglasses shade/tint.

The photochromic lens will remain in this 'darkened' sunglasses state whilst exposed to sunlight/UV and the molecules will reverse the process once the lenses are removed from the sunlight/UV rays returning to the original 'transparent/clear' lens.

How Long Do Photochromic
Lenses Take To Change Color or React?

When exposed to sunlight/UV rays, photochromic lenses will take around a minute to darken and will continue to darken for a further 10 minutes, resulting in a full sunglasses tint/shade.
