I am on my second pair of Silhouette frames ( actually they are frameless). They are progressives that have the transition lenses in them . Because of living in the SW part of the US, the sun shines most everyday and can be very bright. I got tired of having to switch to regular glasses from sunglasses all the time and visa versa. I really like these but wonder if they are for "old folks " mostly and that younger people don't like them? Comments??

I loved mine....but I am 54....I never thought about them being for old folks...I see all ages wearing them...If you like them wear them....most people can't get by on the cheap sunglasses anyway because they need their regular glasses to see!!!

When I was teenager I was wearing eyeglasses "photo gray" lenses which were on the market before "transition" lenses. I always found it very practical that the lenses got darker in the sun without having to have a separate pair of prescription sunglasses.

I just got Transitions lenses a couple of months ago. I'd been wearing contacts since I was a teenager - many many moons ago - but cannot tolerate them any longer. So going to glasses was a challenge in itself. I absolutely love the Transitions. I didn't want to be bothered with two pairs of glasses, especially since I have an outdoor hobby and also work in my garden a lot. I see them among all ages, especially among the outdoor crowd. Who wants to take two pairs of glasses hiking, for example? I wouldn't have anything else.

I love mine. I got a pair of Ray Ban Aviator frames in gunmetal, thin progressive lenses with Transitions. I also have a box of contacts but I don't even wear them. My glasses do it all - I can see to drive, see when I look down, see outside in sunlight and inside and don't have to be worried about keeping 3 pairs of sunglasses and 67 pairs of Walgreens glasses around yay

My guess is that younger folks have more surgical options. .Thus are less likely to be full time glasses wearers.

I am glad I spotted this thread. I will be getting new glasses and thought of transition lenses. I don't see anyone complaining about them. That's good.
