Sometime ago, I tried wearing contact lenses (because I couldn't let go of my Oakley Shades). I had some misadventures, plus my, my, it's making me late for work! Hah. So I gave up. It's back to my ol' ever reliable Oakley Prescription Eyeglasses since then.
Just before we went to the beach, I got myself refitted with Transitions lenses. I initially considered getting just the unbranded ones, about half the price, although a bit longer time to "transition", but they're not readily available. And that time, patience was not my virtue, so Crizal is it!
|Crizal Transitions Lenses is a Photocromics Lenses brand by Essilor. Basically, Transitions lenses are clear indoors and at night. Once outdoors, they adapt spontaneously to varying light conditions.|
In the photo above, there is an invisible Crizal hologram logo that shows up when it's exposed to light, and just when the lenses start to transition.

This is my second time to get Transitions lenses. I used to have it for my Burberry frame. But when I got a new frame, I did not want to spend extra. (And I wanted to wear shades.) I guess, it worked out for the better. I did spend Php 4500 for the Crizal Transitions Lenses in Ideal Vision, but it meant that I'll be wearing my Oakley Prescription longer, for the price I got them, which was over Php 10K, they sure a
re still alive worth it!. Plus, it also means taking tender loving care of my eyes (lesser Korean Drama marathons. hah!) to avoid refitting of lenses anytime soon. Think big savings. Huge. *Teehee Cheers! ^_^
