Light Intelligent Technology is a new contact lens technology applied by Johnson & Johnson Vision Care in cooperation with Transitions Optical Inc., a leading manufacturer of photochromic products. It's the foundation of an entirely new category of contact lenses with light-adapting capabilities previously only available in eyeglasses. It balances the amount of visible light entering the eye providing a better experience in a variety of conditions: outdoor or indoor, sunny or cloudy, during the day or from dusk until dawn. Light Intelligent Technology was trademarked by Transitions Optical Inc. on July 5, 2018, and is slated to be rolled out in 2019 as part of a new ACUVUE OASYS® lens category.

Light Intelligent Technology further explained

When contact lenses with this light-sensitive formulation are exposed to light, the photochromic molecules that were embedded into the lens material start to change its structure. The light triggered reaction causes the molecules to constantly recalibrate as the light changes. This results in the contact lenses to respond and darken or brighten based on the amount of light they are exposed to.
