Do Serengeti Photochromic lenses adjust in Car

Postby Guest on Tue May 21, 2013 12:14 pm

Hi I was wondering if anyone could confirm if the Serengeti Photochromic lenses adjust inside a car or behind glass that blocks UV light. I was about to purchase a pair of Nuvola's when I read online about transition lenses only adjusting due to UV light which is usually blocked out by car windows rendering the lenses ineffective in this situation. I called Serengeti but the people I got ahold of didn't really understand what I was saying. I read on one website that some Photochromic lenses adjust to light instead of UV being the trigger but I couldn't find any information about this on Serengeti's website.

Also has anyone noticed their lenses not adjusting in hot weather? I read that this is a drawback of photochromic lenses.

Thanks for the help,

Yes, they certainly do! Serengeti is one of the few brands that will adjust behind the windshield. This is even true in prescription form.

I hope this helps.
