It's not something I've heard of.

Never met a normal person who wears transitional lenses…

Thanks Andy. I spoke to my opticians today and apparently there is 1 company who can produce a transition prescription lens with gradient tint however the optician said they only have done a few and were not particularly happy with the results so have stopped offering this.

Also I agree they are usually worn by 'special people' so I will just get a pair of gradient tints made up and wear with my contacts Smiling

I think there's probably an issue with the transition effect not activating properly due to the gradient of the tint.

I have a pair of brand new JMM Willem's that I may look to move on. Where's the best place to start? Grailed, Vestaire Collective etc?
