    Well transitions lenses not only acts as sunglass, it provide our eyes from harmful sunlight (UV rays) cos the lens is cover with UV blockage coating. A pair cost around $299 cheaper than getting a pairs of camera lens.

    Hi,

    Where did you get it? Does the $150 include the frame? Please advice. Thank you.

    Did mine about 3 yrs back cost $100++ and with the frames totalled $300++. Damn good lenses. Darkens according to the light density as well. If sun super bright, it will become very dark.

    Cheers....

    got mine for free from AXN contest :P only top up $60 for a better frame. Not bad, turns dark when i'm outdoors, i think it depends on the UV level for the darkness.

    Not suitable if you are driving. It will react only to UV ray not bright light.

    Got mine at Pearl's Optics at Chinatown for S$220+ including frame. Use it everyday and saves me the trouble of having to bring my sunglasses along.

    i thought the lens will be thinner even though if you have a high degree, thats what the guy told me IIRC, and the lens are shatter resistant. Probably there are a few grades of transitions lens.
