In honor of the first day of Summer, Transitions lenses is promoting their “Pledge to live a life less squinty” campaign. While squinting can be dismissed as simply a sign of being unable to see, it really indicates a bigger problem. At Dr. Tavel, we couldn’t agree more.

As Transitions indicates on their promotional page, lifelesssquinty.com, squinting is a result of bright light and glare. The act of squinting is your body’s reaction to protect you from these bright lights and harmful UV rays from the sun. We all know that squinting is uncomfortable and makes you look weird, but it also causes eye strain and fatigue, thereby limiting your ability to see your best.

Ladies, we know we don’t like to squint because it causes wrinkles. Aside from the fact that squinting makes your face look crazy, it also indicates that your eyes are not properly protected and are susceptible to irreversible eye damage. I was really intrigued by this Transitions fact: UV light can “sunburn” the eye’s surface and cause growths on the eye.

What steps can you take to be protected? Transitions are a great way to protect your eyes. They offer 100% protection against both UVA and UVB rays and—unlike ordinary clear lenses—can protect you from squinting. Transitions remain clear during dark days, at night and while you’re indoors, while still blocking the harmful UV rays. On cloudy days, or in low light, the lenses will adapt a moderate tint to protect your eyes. In bright light, Transitions lenses automatically darken to reduce the amount of light reaching your eyes. This helps you squint less and see more!

Learn how Transitions lenses can help you live a life less squinty. When it’s time for your next pair of glasses, ask for Transitions lenses from your nearest Dr. Tavel location.
