Let’s Get XTRActive

Let’s Get XTRActive

It is no secret that I have an eyewear addiction. Hell, my wife considered signing me up for rehab but my smooth talking got me out of it. I told her that I am simply an eyewear connoisseur and a rockstar and she bought it…lol. If you follow me on social media, you have witnessed my addiction and seen designers such as Versace, DITA, Scott Harris or Article One grace my face. Lately, you have probably noticed I have been infatuated with one pair of glasses, the Okerkampf by Jeremy Tarian. Outside of it being limited edition, composed of the best acetate in the world and its amazing colorways, the addition of adaptive lens technology by Transitions lenses are responsible for my infatuation.

I know, I know you are asking how can lenses impact one’s life so much? Well, a group of geniuses came together and created a company knowns as Transitions. These guys basically created a lens that accommodates your lifestyle needs for everything underneath the sun, literally. LOL. Transitions lenses are equipped with patented, photochromic dyes that enable the lenses to rapidly activate, or darken, when they are exposed to the sun’s ultraviolet light. The greater the intensity of UV rays, the darker the lenses become. When UV light is no longer present, including indoors or at night, the lenses fade back to their original state.

Today, I would like to give you the recipe for choosing eyewear to accommodate your lifestyle.

IMG_7118Step One:
The key is to find the right frame. One must account for size, color, and shape. I personally like bigger frames so I tend to go slightly larger. Although, I must admit my big head and nose basically forces me too…lol. As mentioned before, the frame that I have been wearing the most are the Okerkampf by Jeremy Tarian (shop here). These frames were initially sunglasses, but I turned them into my everyday pair.

Step Two:
It is all about the lenses baby! Eyeseeeuphorians, not only should you never cheat yourself with frames but most importantly never cheat when it comes to your lenses. It is important to always choose an option that accommodates your lifestyle the best. This is why I am a big fan and advocate of Transitions lenses. They offer something for everybody. Currently, they have Transitions Signature, Vantage and XTRactive for options. The Signature is more of their staple and the Vantage actually offers variable polarization. Variable polarization! How cool is that? Although, the aforementioned would work with my lifestyle, I found the XTRactive to be my perfect fit. Yup…can you say checkmate? I chose this lens because it protects from the brightest sun which can be a problem with constant trips to Nigeria. Also, it keeps a nice tint behind car windows so I do not have to switch to sunglasses when I get in the car.  As a entrepreneur, I am constantly in and out of meetings and on a digital device so I need protection and convenience.  Lastly, it has a mild tint indoors which adds flare to my frame and compliments my style.


• Extra dark outdoors to protect from the brightest sun, even in the hottest conditions
• Darken behind the windshield of a car to protect the eyes from sunlight while driving
• Hint of tint helps to protect from harsh indoor lighting
• Block 100% of UVA & UVB rays
• Designed to work with most prescriptions and frames

In summary, Transitions lenses are what’s popping right now. Transitions lenses in combination with the right frame will change your life. Be sure to ask your eye care professional about adaptive lens technology. Feel free to send an email if you have any questions.
