Transitions Breaks Guinness World Record

Transitions Optical celebrated World Sight Day 2012 by creating the world’s largest photo mosaic – one clear recognisable image of a globe surrounded by an eye.

The record-breaking mosaic, consisting of 176,750 individual photographs and measuring 1,995 square metres (21,479 square feet), was assembled at the Florida State Fair by Transitions employees, on 11 October to commemorate World Sight Day.

The Guinness Book of World Records certified the record as the largest photo mosaic in history. In breaking the record Transitions raised USD$50,000 for World Sight Day.

“We are proud to have set the new World Record title for the ‘Largest Photo Mosaic,'” said Dan McLean, marketing manager, communications, Transitions Optical.

“Throughout our Sightseeing City Tour, we’ve raised awareness among tens of thousands about the importance of healthy, enhanced vision and the role it plays in ‘sightseeing,’ whether you are traveling or in your own backyard – and this new world record, honoring World Sight Day, is the perfect culmination of this year’s efforts.”

The Transitions Optical record mosaic beats the previous record to promote World Milk Day 2012 entitled “Thais Drink Milk” of 154,560 individual photos covering 1,610 square metres.
