I had a pair many years ago. Hated them. They always seem to go darker than you want them to and are hardly ever clear.

My friend has a pair. Whenever anyone looks at his wedding photos (he got married this year) they ask where the guide dog is!

I have them, and I wouldn't pay the money again. I have the opposite experience. They just don't work well as sunglasses for me. I always end up switching to regular sunglasses. They don't seem to tint enough.

I always get them. If you are out in the sun for long amounts of time, they work well, but otherwise not.

When you are in a car or something, you will still get blinded by the sun most of the time. And they take awhile to turn back to normal.

I've had them once. Once.

Everyone has already given their disadvantages.

I'm looking into the new contacts that you wear during sleep and take out during awake! They are new in the US and claim to "correct" your vision, but not sure to what degree or how long... Definitely cool!

Mirrored contacts! HEHEHEHE LMAO!
