Yes, but my car already has rather dark tinted windows anyway. So , I don't think that is a problem .

I have a pair of glasses with transition lenses. I got them a few months ago. They do get dark enough outdoors, as dark as my regular sunglasses. It takes a long time for them to change back when I go indoors though. I've heard that it takes a few times for them to be able to change quickly. I almost never wear my glasses, so maybe they just haven't been exposed to the sun and had to change enough times yet.

Transitions make you look like a pedophile.


I used to have them on a previous pair of glasses. I liked them as glasses and I liked them as sunglasses, but the in-between state sucked.

Not to mention, they didn't transition while driving which was a major flaw.

From the wearer perspective, I don't really notice them changing from clear to dark and back again, all I know is within a few minutes they go back to clear lenses when I go indoors.
