I've had transition lenses back when and still have them and love them. Each time I get an eye checkup my optometrist brings up the idea that maybe I need a pair of prescription sunglasses (some say they don't change dark fast enough while driving). However, I've never had an issue with the lenses. My two favorite lens options ... transitions and hi-index (so my lenses are nice and thin).

Just got my new Transitions from 39dollarglasses and I'm liking them. Made in the USA - titanium rimless non-reflective progressives. They are changing back and forth quickly. I think they've been improving them over the years. $239.

OP:

Hope you enjoy your transition glasses. The last pair I bought at Costco, cost aroun $ 125. Lens and frame. I'm nearsighted.

Accoriding to my Optomologist, Costco is fine. Limited frame selection though.

At my regular eye glass place would have cost $ 400- 500.

That's quite a good price - is the price for Progressives-Transitions ultra thin lenses UV and Non-Glare rimless?

I loved using Costco both in California and Minnesota when there were 5 of us... We no longer use them now that we are 2 and we realized the sizing and limited selection wasn't working for our current needs and tastes Plus I always ended up buying stuff I wouldn't normally buy...."Dear how are we ever going to use all that?" or "I didn't know you were interested in a 14 video set of WW2."

With my prescription it is not easy to get rimless progressives around here not sure Costco would carry what I want...would I have to have a membership...and how much is that now...

Best bet would be to call or visit a Costco store. Find a friend to get you in.

My glasses are rimless. I think UV is pretty standard now days.
