Transitions Gen 8 is now available and processed in-house here at IcareLabs. The first wave of the Transitions Gen 8 launch is underway and if you have not already heard about the advancements, we will breakdown exactly what you and your patients can expect from the latest in photochromic technology.
As we covered in our sneak peek blog after the announcement of Gen 8, there will be three waves of launches phasing out the Transitions Signature VII lenses into the new Transitions Signature GEN 8. For now, all materials and colors that are not being launched today will continue to leverage the Transitions Signature VII products .
The first wave will include Standard Plastic 1.50 (CR39), Airwear® Polycarbonate, and Thin&Lite® 1.67 in gray, brown and some graphite green availability.

Transitions Signature GEN 8 lenses are engineered with new proprietary technology that delivers superior photochromic lens performance. The performance of photochromic lenses is linked to two components: the matrix in which the dyes reside and the photochromic dyes themselves.
The Transitions Signature GEN 8 lens technology incorporates a fully reinvented system, including a reinvented matrix and new photochromic dyes, which has not been done since the launch of Transitions V lenses in 2005.
So what does all that mean for you and your patients? Simply put, 3 minutes faster fade back and up to 30% faster activation than Transitions Signature 7.
Not only are Transitions Signature GEN 8 lenses faster in activation and fade back, they are even darker than previous generations. They will continue to provide 100% UV protection and help protect from harmful blue light indoors and out.
In celebration of the new line, Essilor and Transitions Optical have also launched the NEXT Gen Offer running through the end of 2020. This is good news for your practice to help increase your optical revenue while also good news for your patients to receive a free pair of qualified clear lenses!
