TECHNOLOGY: Spectacle Lenses Younger Expands Transitions Poly Composite Line By Andrew Karp Monday, May 15, 2017 12:00 AM TORRANCE, Calif.—Transitions Signature polycarbonate composite lens technology has been expanded to include FT35 bifocal lenses and 7x28 trifocal lenses in both gray and brown. These new releases, as well as the FT28 bifocal lenses released last year, are available exclusively from Younger Optics through any optical laboratory. “Younger Optics and Transitions Optical have developed a polycarbonate composite lens that incorporates a thin photochromic front surface bifocal or trifocal layer made of Trivex—resulting in a lens delivering Transitions Signature VII performance and superb segment cosmetics in a product that is surfaced, polished, edged and dispensed just like a clear polycarbonate lens,” said David Rips, president and CEO of Younger Optics. “Despite growing demand for progressive and digital designs, there is still a significant demand in the market for segmented lenses,” noted Catherine Rauscher, global director for lenscaster partners, Transitions Optical. The expansion of Younger Optics’ line of Transitions Signature polycarbonate composite lens technology enables eyecare professionals to provide Transitions brand lens when requested by bifocal and trifocal wearers.
