Wearers of corrective glasses who are looking for a solution to the hassle of finding sunglasses that work with their glasses or paying for a second pair of glasses need look no further than photochromatic or photochromic lenses.
Not everyone wants photochromic lenses, a second pair of prescription glasses they can have tinted, or to go without their eyewear in lieu of sunglasses (depending on your prescription, that could be very dangerous anyway!).
This remarkable feat is accomplished through photochromic technology, and even better is the fact that these special lenses are compatible with a wide range of prescriptions, including bifocals and trifocal recommendations.
Though many photochromic lenses serve as great sun absorption sunglasses (make sure you check the label), the disadvantage is that it may take many minutes for the lenses to adjust to different light conditions.
You'll pay $400.00 for these luxury sunglasses and in return you'll get high-quality metal, silicone nose pads and temples (for comfort), and your choice of photochromic, polarized, or mineral glass lenses.
If you are a serious athlete then you may want to pay special attention to several of these styles, as each comes equipped with photochromic technology that automatically darkens and lightens the lenses.
Using polarized sunglasses for fishing will help you see more clearly in bright light conditions, dim light conditions (if you're using photochromic lenses), in shallow water, and even in deep water.
Due to the effects of a chemical called silver halide, photochromic lenses have the ability to darken when exposed to UV rays, and return to their original transparency when light is less intense.
The most important drawback is that photochromic lenses generally do not work well for driving because the car's windscreen blocks most UV light, so that there is no trigger to change the lenses.
Keeping your eyewear needs simple-you won't have to juggle your glasses depending on your vision needs (especially if you wear photochromic lenses because then you'll have your sunglasses too).
