Reactolite glasses.

Post by kitcarman » Fri May 24, 2019 8:18 am

I have had a real problem with trying to work outside in the sunshine. Almost impossible to see what I'm doing. I capitulated, took a train ride into Bordeaux, very easy to achieve, my other half organised it. Got two old codgers passes, almost halved the price, a very efficient service. Had a nice day out, had a great pizza, in a restaurant they have an 1959 Lambreta, all original, belongs to the owner, he's had it from New . Back to the glasses, found the discount unit in the centre of town, address checked on the internet by other 1/2 . She got hers in about an hour, mine were a little more complicated lenses so came through the post. Crumbs what a difference, to be recommended. Did a shop following she who must be obeyed around, then the train home to our local station, easy peasy. Nice day out ! Something to be aware of. It gets cheaper to buy your passes at the station. As we found out after buying them on line. icon_Hi ya!

I've had reactolite style glasses for years but found with age and probs with floaters that with my usual prescription (rate of change from light to dark, not eye prescription) I was starting to struggle to see when moving from light to dark/dim areas. You can get more expensive coatings that change rapidly but at a cost so I've reverted back to ordinary glasses.

I don't have Reactolite glasses but I do have glasses that act like them. (They do cost an arm and a leg.) But I now rarely have to use the flip down sun visor in my crash helmet.
