DALLAS – March 19, 2010 –  Essilor of America, Inc., the nation’s leading manufacturer of optical lenses, and Transitions Optical, Inc., today announced the launch of Transitions® XTRActive™ – a new and advanced offering in the Transitions family of photochromic products. These new lenses are designed for patients who spend much of their day in bright, sunny conditions and desire to have the darkest everyday lenses available. Transitions XTRActive lenses are not a replacement line for Transitions VI lenses, which will continue to be available

for the foreseeable future.

“Transitions XTRActive lenses represent an additional choice in everyday lenses and are perfect for patients who want an extra-dark lens outdoors,” said Carl Bracy, vice president of marketing for Essilor of America. “The ideal lens wearer may spend most of their time outdoors, or in bright and sunny conditions, and may prefer a slight indoor tint.”

Transitions XTRActive lenses are the best everyday Transitions lenses for extra darkness at all temperatures. Unique lens features include a slight tint when indoors, a very dark tint when outdoors and a slight activation behind the windshield of a car, which is dependent on windshield shape and inclination as well as the position of the driver.
