Boots Opticians will stock the Transitions lenses in the newly-released Amethyst and Sapphire colours. 

The new lens colours were introduced to Transitions’ Style Colours collection on 2 May, with the company highlighting that “they offer a unique way for patients to express themselves, as well as introducing a contemporary element to purchasing prescription eyewear.”
