While both my husband and I use glasses, he uses them more frequently so when I received the opportunity to get Transitions Lenses, he kindly let me know that he would be the one getting them and not me (after all he does for me how can I tell him no?) That being the case, I’ll let him share his experiences of getting the eye exam, choosing his glasses and his thoughts on Transitions Lenses with you.
I was so excited about getting my Transitions Lenses that I got to my eye appointment at Family Eye Center early. We were greeted by a friendly and helpful staff, one of which conducted the 1st part of my eye exam that included images of my eyeballs (I have pics but I’ll spare you from looking at them). Once that exam was done, I went to another room where the eye doc did prescription testing. He later explained using an ipad (or should I say eye pad?…sorry, couldn’t resist) that my eyes were healthy and that I was using the wrong prescription. He really took the time to explain and show me what they were looking for on my eyeball images. It was such a relief that other than needing a stronger prescription, my eyes were healthy.
Once the exams were done, it was time for the fun part, selecting my new frames. The helpful staff walked me through their selection and they had plenty of affordable, fashionable frames to choose from. Thankfully, they were very patient with me seeing as I have to find the right glasses to fit my head (keep in mind that I am 6’6″). It took some time to find the right sized frames for my head and face but we did it. I chose a very handsome looking brown Lacoste frame to go with my Transition Vantage lenses. I couldn’t wait to get them!
I only had to wait 3 days for my glasses to be ready and as soon as I put on my new glasses, I noticed the difference immediately. With my new prescription and lenses, I could see everything much clearer and in more detail. When I went outside to test out the Transitions part of the lenses I didn’t notice a difference yet when I looked at my reflection in my car door’s window I saw that my lenses had in fact darkened like sunglasses. Needless to say, I was amazed! I couldn’t even tell from looking through them that they had gotten darker, which was pretty cool.
I also love that there was no glare, so it seemed like I was looking at the world through a newly cleaned window.
I’ve been wearing glasses regularly for a few years now and while I usually just go for the cheapest frames and lenses, I can see a major difference (pun intended) now that I am using (and loving) Transition Vantage lenses.
In my opinion, if you wear glasses you should definitely try Transition Vantage lenses!
