The true cost of wearing varifocal glasses
Varifocals have brought us the convenience of not having to swap between glasses for reading and for driving.
But at what cost! With a set of varifocal lenses setting you back hundreds of pounds, investing in separate pairs of glasses with clear lenses for indoor use and sunglasses for the outdoors looks increasingly unaffordable.
Surely the solution is to buy photochromic lenses that double as sunglasses?
Opticians often promote light-reactive lenses as a cost-effective way to get a single pair of spectacles to perform two jobs for the price of one, but transitional lenses are not without their drawbacks.
For a start most photochromic lenses (often referred to as Transitions) only change colour when your glasses are exposed directly to sunlight. This means that they are normally ineffective in the car, yet for many people the whole reason to turn to sunglasses is to reduce glare whilst driving.
Throw in the added problem that most photochromic lenses do not have the benefit of being polarised, so they are actually not that good at glare protection, particularly reflected glare from the road and cars ahead.
Also, a common experience when wearing these lenses is that they are often too dark in cloudy weather and not dark enough in sunny warm weather.
So is there a better alternative?
Why clip on sunglasses are the most cost-effective and versatile solution
The increasing cost of prescription lenses, and the drawbacks of light-reactive lenses are making many consumers realise the attractiveness of clip on sunglasses. These used to be unpopular because they looked unfashionable, often did not fit very well, and the quality was variable.
Well, some of those criticisms still apply to many of the clip on sunglasses out there on the market - you get what you pay for! Many online companies sell poor quality clip on sunglasses that seem to offer good value but actually give an unsatisfactory consumer experience, associated with inadequate UV and glare protection and dodgy reliability.
And looking for clip on sunglasses on the high street that actually fit is normally a frustrating waste of time.
