Leslie Sessel Optometrist is proud to announce that they are now stocking the NEW ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ Light Intelligent Technology™, the first-of-its-kind contact lens that seamlessly adapts to changing light to provide all-day soothing vision.

 ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ quickly and seamlessly adapts to balance the amount of indoor and outdoor light entering the eye, including filtering blue light and blocking harmful UV rays.

It is reported that 94% of consumers bothered by light use compensating behaviours to manage it.

76% of consumers shade their eyes, 73% squint their eyes while 59% turn off lights indoors to reduce harsh light and 55% turn down their screen brightness when working on a computer or hand-held device.

It’s a fact that bright light can impact a person’s vision and impact their daily lives.

 And that’s where ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ comes into play, with the latest technology patients experience superior vision performance, both indoors and outdoors.

 Sounds too good to be true? Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:

 How does it look on my eye? Does it get dark?

The lenses become darker when activated by UV and/or HEV light.

They were specifically designed to provide patient benefits while minimizing the change to the appearance of the eye.

While outdoors, the level of activation is always changing in response to the light, so in most situations, the lens isn’t in the darkest state.

These lenses also fade back to clear quickly when you come inside.4


Is this new lens offering a sunglasses replacement? Can you use them with sunglasses?

ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ are not intended to be used as a replacement for sunglasses.

However, they can be worn with non-prescription sunglasses.

While these lenses do provide UV protection to the areas they cover, other parts of the eye and surrounding areas are still exposed to UV light.

Sunglasses help to protect the entire eye.

Does the lens activate in indoor light or only outdoor UV light?

The lens activates in both indoor and UV light. Even when this lens appears clear, it is working and adapting to different lighting conditions.


Can I wear these lenses while driving?

Yes, these lenses can be worn while driving both during the day and at night.


How quickly will they lighten up inside? How long does it take for them to get dark outside?

Activation and fade back time are dependant on a number of factors.

The lenses begin to activate as soon as they are exposed to sunlight. When going from outdoors to indoors they quickly fade back from dark to clear.


Why is ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ only available in a reusable lens? Why not as a daily disposable?

ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ is about performance in demanding environments.

With an indication of vision correction and an attenuation of bright light, ACUVUE® OASYS with Transitions™ will help contact lens wearers manage the diverse types of light and varying intensities of brightness they face – indoors and outdoors – every day.

That’s why it is a great addition to the ACUVUE® OASYS family.
