JUSTJEWETT: you cant get polarization with xactive
KaiserjiM23: I like transitions xtractive aswell.. I have chosen my dream glasses which can be found in Rx-safety.. Is the website Rx-safety legit?.
david northrop: I'm a truck driver and needed a pair sunglasses. anyway I bought a a pair of drive wear glasses that are designed for driving. I also have a pair of xtractive transition glasses. I tend to use my transitions more often when I'm driving then I do my drive wear glasses. I would highly recommend xtractive transitions .
Blackdragon79: I had mine for almost 2 weeks. Freaking awesome. I paid 140.00 for exam frames and lenses with a Groupon discount. They great when you're driving with a slight activation.
Pokonoinoi: Thank you.
Catch the Wave: Thanks man! I didnt know about this, I wish my optometrist would have given me this option.
Thanks for the review.
Keadil: This is a pretty good review. I just ordered these lenses. I really can't handle bright light well. These will work out very well for me. As for the tint indoors, it isn't even noticeable. I can't imagine it will be a problem for me.
brigandian: It's untrue that XTRActive comes only as in polycarbonate material. There are at least 3 different types of materials: CR39 1.50 (which is a simple regular plastic lens), 1.59 PC (polycarbonate) and 1.60 (for people who want slimmer lenses). All three are available from Hoya, Essilor and many other smaller companies.
Stan Smith: I wish I would have came across this video sooner. @ 35 and just getting my first pair of perscriptions yesterday. My eye Doc said nothing about xtractive lenses even though I told him my eyes are very very sensitive to light and I spend 10hrs a day outside. He sold me regular transitions and my eyes wont stop watering when outside. I feel like I just wasted 300 dollars on lenses. Thanks for the good review. I will be going back to get the xtractive lenses. Does anyone have any other suggestions as far as coating recommendations to get with the Transition Xrtactive lens for people who are really sensitive to light?
Dionysius18: Thanks for the review. I just returned my transitions lenses for the extraActive ones. The regular ones don't do much of anything for me. But damn, they're pricey.
James Donald: They are activated by sunlight not UV; that is why they darken in car despite car windows blocking UV.
Shunmugam M: Nice review. How about during night lights and indoor night lights which are brighter at home or office or elsewhere ? Is this transitioning based on UV or actual light.
sam hawkz: They do activate behind the wheel but only the extractive ones like the video
Bogdan Chepurny: can you show how they work in the car? thanks
Ryan Windsor: Thank you so much, this really helped me
Bruce Hammerstrom: My issue is making sure the tint activates in a car with tinted windshield. Did your research address this?
deepanshus: bro, you have different power in both eyes, when you are in "transition" it looks super weird !!... thanks, this itself is enough for me to not get one of these !!
ps: the lens with higher power have more of these crystals making them more darker/longer to fade back than the other making an imbalance in tint
helaya007: thx for posting My glasses with all the features comes to about $950. This is also with magnetic clip on sun glasses, progressive lenses,frame, anti reflective, transitional etc, etc
Arsalan Baig: I'm glad I didn't get these now. The activation/deactivation time would irritate me. It takes about 3-4 minutes for them to deactivate :/
