SunSync Drive XT takes the old notion about light-reactive lenses not working in the car and throws it out the window. Combining in-car color retention with ultra-dark outdoor color and exceptional indoor clarity, this conventional extra reactive lens takes the show on the road and anywhere else life takes you.
In lab testing, SunSync Drive XT outperformed the top-selling conventional extra reactive photochromic in three key areas.1
Whereas traditional light-reactive lenses activate based on exposure to UV light only, SunSync Drive XT responds to both UV and visible light. So the lenses retain color in the car, even if the windshield blocks the UV.

SunSync Drive XT is a conventional extra reactive, light-reactive lens that gets darker outdoors and stays dark in the car.
SunSync Drive XT retains all the benefits of SunSync Light-Reactive Lenses while introducing in-car activation and a darker outdoor color.
SunSync Drive XT provides wearers the following benefits:
In lab testing, SunSync Drive XT outperformed Transitions XTRActive in the following three categories.1
SunSync Drive XT activates in response to both UV and visible light unlike standard photochromic lenses which activate in response to UV light only.
Standard photochromic lenses that only activate in response to UV light do not typically darken or stay dark in a car because most car windshields block UV light from entering the car.
SunSync Drive XT lenses activate in response to both UV and natural visible light. Therefore, the visible light coming through the windshield and side windows allows the lenses to retain color in the car.
SunSync Drive XT will not activate in response to interior lighting.
SunSync Drive XT is available in 1.50 plastic, polycarbonate, Trivex, and 1.67 high-index.
SunSync Drive XT is available on the following lens designs:
SunSync Drive XT is also available on Shamir lens designs.
SunSync Drive XT is available in gray and brown.
SunSync Drive XT is near-clear indoors and extra dark outdoors. In its activated state in the car, SunSync Drive XT is less dark than its fully activated outdoor color.
Yes. In fact, adding a premium anti-reflective coating like TechShield® Elite will enhance the performance of SunSync Drive XT. However, we do not recommend adding a blue-light-reducing AR coating like TechShield Blue because it intentionally reduces the amount of blue (visible) light reaching the lens, which can negatively impact lens performance.
As a standard practice we do not promote a single fixed percentage of blue light reduction for any of our products. This is because we do not feel this is the most scientifically appropriate or accurate way to describe what the lenses are actually doing in terms of blue light reduction.
Instead, we publish spectral transmittance graphs for our products, which show the percentage of reduction at all wavelengths, not just certain points. The graphs show these curves for SunSync Drive XT in both the clear and dark states.

"Sunsync lenses made it very convenient to have 2 in 1 pair of lens when driving or coming out of a building specially here in Florida. The automatic change from indoors to outdoors and vice versa is fantastic. I definitely will recommend this product to my family and friends who use glasses."
