First Ever Transition Contact Lenses

The Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology has recently invented special transition contact lenses. These special contact lenses will allow consumers everywhere to enjoy both their protection from the outside sun, while also still keeping in their everyday much needed contact prescriptions all in one.

The Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN) in Singapore created these first ever transition contacts, easing all of these switching and complicated changing transitions.

For years now, transition glasses have existed that darken in bright light, thus to act similar to a pair of sunglasses. Though IBN is truly responsible for the first ever transition contacts that far pass what transition glasses could once do.

The transition lenses change and darken in bright light. The lenses are able to adapt due to special photochromic dyes that change shape when exposed to sunlight.
Say goodbye to the days of switching between two different pairs of glasses, or even the complicated switch between the permanent eye contact lenses and a much needed pair of sunglasses the second you step outside.

Though this without a doubt is a very neat invention, since IBN it makes life a whole lot easier, it on the other hand makes life a whole lot less fashionable. As Americans, we really do love our sunglasses and the flashy, unique, and fashion forward- or complete fashion reverse in some cases- they bring us.

It will be interesting to see how many individuals make the switch to these transition contact lenses or instead remain old school and stick to the regular routine switch of contact lenses and sunglasses.
