If you wear glasses......

Do you have those fancy lenses like "Crizol" (smudge proof, scratch proof), or the self darkening lenses or other fancy type of lens? If so, was it worth the price???

I get my eyeglasses from Zenni Optical now - scratch-proof is included, but you have the options of smudge-proof, anti-glare, etc. for really low prices. I got a pair of cute frames and anti-glare lenses in my prescription for a total of $11.90 (before shipping). I love that place ... no more $300 glasses that insurance won't cover ever again.

I have heard of them and plan to try them out in the near future. I have no vision insurance so its all out of pocket. I just get the plain lenses without scratch resistance and all that

Scratch-proof lenses are worth it. Years ago I had the self-darkening lenses, which eventually wouldn't go back to clear all the way. Plus, modern glasses lenses are so much smaller that dark lenses don't work as well as a good pair of sunglasses.

I didn't want the darkening lenses because a few people I know had them and complained about them...one friend's glasses stayed perma-dark XD

I always just get really cheap ones because I primarily wear contacts.

I just get normal glasses and wear sunglasses if I want shade.

I wish I had scratch proof lenses, but I've learned to doctor the glass.

I have scratch-proof 'glass' lenses for daily use. However, when I fly my airplane, I wear special scratch-proof 'all glass' polarized sunglasses!

I always get the light-weight, thin, scratch proof lenses since i'm a clumsy person. I recently got the glare-proof lenses for my recent pair of classes (i drive a lot) as the frames were free with insurance. Way back when, in middle school, i had the transitional lenses and they were really helpful, but would take some time to go back to their regular look and over time the lenses would have a yellow tint from always going back and fourth. Now that was several years ago and im sure they have changed it so they are better, but i would suggest them if you find yourself being the outdoorsy type or drive a lot in the sun and cant find sunglasses that cover your own.

I have those ones that turn into sunglasses when you go outside. I really should wear them more, my eyesight is terrible.

I don't have fancy ones...too expensive.

I don't but my sister has the darkening ones. They often look dark inside which I think looks pretty cheesy, like they are just regular sunglasses. She likes them though.

Instead of the transitions lenses (self darkening) I bought a cute pink pair with a matching clip so they look like sun glasses they were 300 with my employee discount and they were worth it I've had them for three years and still love them

I don't have anything fancy like that, just some nifty frames.

I don't have the transition lenses, but I do have lenses that are shatter/scratch-proof and the anti-glare coating for computer use.

I did get the expensive "Crizol" and honest...I have no clue what good they are supposed to do. They smudge and fog the same as the cheapest glasses I ever had. I really don't get it.

I was worried, since even inside, the glass on these "transition" lenses looked darker then the clear glass.

I have two pair of "Transitions" and will NOT waste my money on them again. Inside they are indistinguishable from regular clear glasses. My disappointment is with how dark they don't get. Not nearly as dark as what I need outdoors. In the car or even when wearing a hat that shades them they don't get dark at all.
