Transition Lenses

Hubby and I both have transition lenses on our glasses.  I have always had really good luck with mine, but he has not been so lucky.  On his last 2 pair, the transition film begins to peel around the edges and they don't transition as well as they should.  Yesterday we went to buy hubby some new glasses because the transition film on his current pair are so bad it is now getting in to his line of sight.  While we were at LensCrafters, we mentioned this to the guy helping us and he said that they have now changed the technology for the transition feature.  Instead of it being a film that is applied on to the lens, it is actually made in to the lens now.

We also asked the guy why hubby's glasses would peel and mine would not.  We bought them at the exact same location.  He said perhaps it is the way they are cared for.  Nope that's not it - we use the exact same cleaning materials - in fact, I do the majority of the cleaning of both pairs.  The other suggestion he offered is that it may have something to do with the chemical makeup of our skin.  Okay, that I can believe.

It will be about 10-12 days before hubby's glasses are ready (he has a really strong prescription), so I am hopeful that this pair will be better than the others.
