Stepping out into the sunshine from an indoor location without Safety Sunglasses can lead to a temporary inability to focus the eyes. This unpleasant effect of changing light conditions can be disorienting, frustrating and dangerous in a work environment. Whilst workers can carry both a clear and tinted pair of Safety Glasses, this is inconvenient, costly and increases the risk of eye injuries as workers constantly change between clear and tinted safety glasses. Due to these challenges, Photochromic Safety Glasses have been developed to offer the perfect solution for Australian workers.
Photochromic lenses seamlessly adjust to changing light conditions. These lenses are activated by UV light from the sun, therefore darkening when exposed to sunlight outdoors, and lightening indoors and in low light environments. Photochromic Safety Glasses therefore offer both clear and tinted lenses in a single safety frame. Key benefits of Photochromic Safety Glasses include:
At Eye Protect, we carry an extensive range of Photochromic Safety Glasses (also known as non-prescription transition safety glasses).

Photochromic Safety Glasses make use of light-responsive technology in their lenses, which enables them to transform from clear for indoor and low light use to tinted for outdoor use in sunlight. Photochromic Safety Glasses are said to have transition, auto-tinting or variable tint lenses as they can darken and lighten as the need arises.
These safety glasses achieve changing tint effects through the molecules embedded in the lenses, which “power” the Photochromic Safety Glasses’ reversible darkening capabilities. These molecules are activated by UV light from the sun, leading them to darken automatically. When the available UV light is reduced, the molecules transition back, and the lenses lighten and become clear again.
Photochromic Safety Glasses (AKA non-prescription transition safety glasses) are suitable for use across a wide range of industries and applications. They are particularly useful for workers who regularly move between indoor and outdoor work environments throughout the day. For this reason, Photochromic Safety Glasses are commonly used in the industrial, construction, mining, manufacturing, agricultural, healthcare, emergency services, military, law enforcement and sports industries.
With lenses that darken quickly and turn clear in a matter of seconds, Photochromic Safety Glasses are the epitome of convenience. They do away with the need for workers to have two pairs of safety glasses on hand at all times.
Photochromic lenses automatically change for different lighting conditions providing visual clarity in situations.
Photochromic Safety Glasses remove the need for workers to keep changing between clear and tinted safety glasses as they move between lighting conditions. This increases eye protection as workers can keep a single pair of safety glasses on whilst working.
Photochromic Safety Glasses provide glare reduction without affecting colour perception or contrast. Photochromic lenses in Photochromic Safety Glasses also provide UV protection even during light transitions.
