Just picked up two pairs of progressive lenses from Zenni. They have there own brand of Transitions called blockz. It's excellent, I went to a Eyeglass store and they had a tray with transition lenses. We went outside and compared the Transitions to Blockz. Identical in terms of speed of going from light to dark and visa versa to the transitions.

Photochromatic glasses are the bomb, outside they turn dark and somewhat eliminate glare and inside they lighten up so you see perfectly.

To those who don't know it, the eyeglass industry in the U.S is monopolized by a company called Luxotica. Thus the prices for Glasses in the U.S are ridiculous. A coworker introduced me to Zenni around 5 years ago and I buy all my glasses from them.

Finding the right pair is easy. You upload a photo and you can try them on online. It's uncanny how with the right photo the look is so close to how they appear on me when they arrive. Also measure the width of your glasses and compare to the posted specification. Example I'm 140 mm to 144mm side to side on my glasses. So I make sure to buy glasses in that range.

Costwise my Progressive BlockZ Photochromatic Glasses cost me around $100.00. The optometrist told me that a pair of Transitions in the U.S would cost around $300.00 not taking into account cost of frame.

Rule of thumb is you'll pay around 3/4 to 2/3 less than the cost of buying in the U.S. I always order by priority and glasses always arrive in 8-10 calendar days. What they do is send the glasses in bulk to the United States and then break em up into individual shipments. So your glasses are sent the final mile by Domestic USPS with tracking.

Quality wise I've found that the quality is equivalent on the Zenni Glasses to Designer Glasses in the U.S.
