Not having been tested for nearly 10 years (worn glasses for 30) last week signed up for a research program from a manufacturer, what it included was a really comprehensive test and I even got paid $40 for it - almost 2 hours but it was far more detailed than the standard tests. They gave me a card I can show to any glasses maker that has all of my specs.

Apparently my eyes have evened up - last time tested there was a .25 difference but that's gone now. No other/new issues, except I may one day need proper bifocals (for now I can get still away by reading over the top of my glasses). Everything else normal, no cataracts starting, still above average angle of perception.

Was thinking going back to the auto tinting glasses, I find myself squinting in bright sunlight (which brings on migraines) and don't want hassle of carrying 2 pairs of glasses (i.e. 1 clear, 1 prescription sunnies).

I do wear contacts some days when not working (can wear normal sunnies), I find contacts are way better for driving day and night and serious biking treks.
