    only 1.67, poly and cr39 for now, other materials to follow. I ordered the first one today, sounds good, Transitions doesn't reallu introduce another generation if it isn't a leap forward. I am excited because I am a huge nerd.

    +1. Trans VI is what turned me around on photochromics, and Signature VII was a big improvement as well.

    Not impressed. Zeiss PhotoFusion, Hoya Sensity and IOT Neochromes react faster, both ways, and are less expensive.
    I bend light. That is what I do.

    Yeah, lensman, but do those actually provide a nice no-line bifocal effect?

    Because all my presbyopes ask for "those Transitions".

    HaHa! You wouldn’t believe the number of redos we get exactly for this reason. I didn’t ask for something that changes. Or, I asked for that all in one lens I can’t read out of these. SMHV.

    I like the reaction time of PhotoFusion, but not the color. Too purple. Ditto for SunSync Elite; very quick to change, weird bluish grey color.

    They only launched five days ago. I assume when we have some in our hands to play with, we'll have some opinions and observations to share.

    The funniest thing about Trans 8 coming out last Wednesday was that it was the same day our office went live with Eyefinity Practice Management, which meant all the time I spent importing Transitions product with the Lens Loader in previous weeks was utterly wasted. I now need to re-import all the T8 product.

    From what I have heard, the only thing that is changing is the time it takes to get clearer. Forgot the actual time, but it is supposed to be faster.
