Drivewear combines the best of two technologies: Transitions(TM) photochromic technology, which is activated by light, and NuPolar(R), which eliminates glare through polarization.
Drivewear lenses will change color to best fit the light conditions; high contrast yellow-green in overcast conditions, copper for bright conditions behind the windshield of a car, and dark reddish-brown in bright outdoor light. Equally important to eye health, Drivewear blocks 100 percent of UV A and UV B.
Since we are exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light from the sun every day, whether it is sunny or cloudy, and despite the season, UV protection is key to protecting eyes. Unprotected exposure over time can and often does damage the eye, such as, cataracts and damage to the retina. Both conditions can seriously impair vision.
According to the Vision Council of America (VCA), the sun is one of the most overlooked dangers while driving, particularly during the height of morning and evening commutes. Thousands of people are injured each year, some fatally, as a result of glare.
Drivewear is the only lens developed to specifically address the driving task. Polarized at all times and designed to shift between a lighter and darker color as visual conditions change, it is the ultimate in driving eyewear and is available at eye care professionals throughout the United States, as both prescription and non-prescription sun lenses.

Drivewear(R), a revolutionary technology developed by Younger Optics,
was introduced in 2007. The lens, which elevates the driving experience by
intelligently balancing the amount of light and information to reach the
eye, is available from your eye care provider in both prescription and
non-prescription applications. Capable of sensing and reacting to varying
