Adage® Transitions®
Short Corridor Progressive Polycarbonate Lenses With Transitions® VI Photochromic Technology

(TORRANCE, CA — March 16, 2011) ECP's have been wondering – When my patient needs an photochromic progressive lens that fits into a shorter frame, what is the best lens to use?

The answer is Adage Transitions! Younger Optics is pleased to announce the availability of Adage short-corridor progressive lenses in Transitions gray and brown. Now patients can get a lens with a very wide, clear distance zone that fits into their preferred smaller frames, and experience the benefits of Transitions photochromic technology, all at the same time. Adage is currently available in polycarbonate.

Benefits of Adage Lens with Transitions photochromics:
•160° of viewing freedom in the distance zone
• Minimum fitting height of 13mm (great for smaller frames)
• Very wide near zone for a short design
• Generous corridor width for a clear view in all areas
• 90% of add is reached at only 11mm below pupil
• An effective blank size of 76mm
• No secondary calculations necessary for use
• Conveniently darken and adapt to changing light outdoors
• Polycarbonate material is well-suited to outdoor activities

The Adage lens has been designed to provide the wearer with an excellent and balanced combination of far, near, and intermediate zones. Compared to leading short corridor progressives, the Adage lens offers a more generous usable area. This helps the wearer get a clear view, wherever they are looking. Adage lenses give your patients all of these benefits in a short-corridor lens.

In addition to Transitions gray and brown, Adage is available in clear and NuPolar gray and brown. For Total Vision Care, be sure to equip your patient with everyday eyewear, such as Adage Transitions, and polarized sunwear, such as Adage NuPolar. Remember: polarized lenses do what no other treatment can: block blinding glare.

Younger Optics is headquartered in Torrance, CA, and is recognized as the world leader in prescription polarized lenses with its NuPolar® brand. For more information about Younger Optics, NuPolar lenses and other products, visit the company’s web site at
