Transition Lens for Your Glasses?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
My partner just ordered a new glasses and this time for a change, we ordered it with transition lens. It won't be finished til next week but just wondering if anyone has any inputs on this?

The shop didn't have the sample lens but according to them on normal mode (clear) the lens will still have a slight tint and not 100% clear like normal lens.
I am just worried that this might turn out to be annoying if you have to see everything in tint.

They work fine. Tint changes fairly quickly, you hardly notice the changes. One thing to remember, they don't change in the car, because the car glass block the change ability. Need some clipons.

Tried the transition lens for three months and dumped them. They work great if you're outside but if you work in an office that tint is really annoying. Of course, if you love the Sennheiser veil you'll love reading through the transition's veil.

True that about the car...However I've used transitions for about 3 years and never had a moments annoyance about the 'tint'. Wouldn't by any other type of lens! And I didn't get a clip-on, just a pair of sunglasses for the car and I keep them in the car for those rare sunny days here in Rochester...they occur about once a month so you've got to be ready

I didn't buy Transitions because they don't work in the car. I believe they're UV sensitive, and car glass blocks UV rays, so they stay clear. Instead, I ordered a cheap pair of prescription sunglasses from one of the companies recommended by Glassy Eyes for around $35.

They tend to stay tinted in rooms with fluorescent lights (I don't have them, but some people at school do), which would probably be irritating.

My ophthalmologist and optometrist recommended against them, as did friends that have them.

Oh crap. Luckily the optometrist ordered a set of uncut normal lens just in case. Well if it doesn;t work well then I guess back to regular one then.

I have not have had any issues with tinting when I didn't want them to. Also, I do not perceive a tint when clear at all. The only gripe I have is that they take a bit to change from tinted to not tinted. If you are going from outdoors to indoors frequently, you may be slightly annoyed. I deal with it though. Sheer laziness is my reasoning. Also, they are a great conversation piece/starter.

She got the glasses yesterday and she tried wearing it for most of the day yesterday. Not sure about the time for it to change the shade because it didn't change (heavy overcast day). But tint wise, it was fine, not that obvious.
I tried looking through the glass, and when it's clear, the tint just makes everything a tad warmer (like warmer colour in cameras).

See, it really isn't that bad. I am glad you are happy.

They work, They're a bit slow to clear up again though after use though, and they never tint enough for really bright sunlight, but enough to make it more tolerable

Had them for two years and just didn't like them. Indoors mine stayed tinted; couldn't get used to that.

Just get some magnetic tint lens

I don't notice any tint indoors at all. I would get them again for my next pair of glasses. It's nice to have them in case I forget the separate sunglasses (prescription)
