Neochromes, the independent alternative to Transitions, corporate-branded photochromic lenses represents an important shift in the photochromic lens market.

What Are Neochromes?

Neochromes by IOT offers a cutting-edge line of photochromic lenses. These advanced lenses seamlessly transition between light and dark environments, ensuring optimal vision without the need for multiple pairs of glasses.

They offer comprehensive protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays, while also minimizing eye strain for enhanced comfort in any setting. Their appealing colors and transparent inactive state make them a perfect fit for both indoor and outdoor use, whether in bright sunlight or in the shade.

Temperature Effects on Photochromic Lenses


Temperature affects all photochromic lenses. In cold climates, photochromic lenses darken more and take longer to lighten. However, in warm climates, they do not darken as much and are quicker to lighten. This is a characteristic of the state of balance in a photochromic system. The photochromic molecules use thermal energy to become transparent.
