Classic styling, easy to get prescription lenses for, and they fold up flat so you can just stick 'em in your pocket. Or just get a pair of sunglasses that match your normal glasses. If your main concern is driving and you don't like carrying stuff, I suggest just leaving them in your car.
I knew a kid (a little old to be your freshman friend, maybe his older brother) who used to wear the first version of those glasses back in middle school. They changed from jaundiced-eye-yellow to black-eye-purple in color. I had figured they would have fixed that somewhat by now. Soon enough LCD technology will do that, I'm sure.

I was wondering how any one could take offense to lenses that change color. BTW, if anybody wants to see clip-ons that look stylish, see Susan Sarandon in Bull Durham.

I just ordered my first pair of prescription sunglasses this weekend. I used to have clip-ons (made specifically for my glasses), but changed glasses so those don't work any more. The cilp-ons looked fine, but I had to be careful not to scratch them or the glasses. And they weren't that much easier to carry than an extra pair of specs. And I don't like contacts. And I have very light eyes, so I don't have much choice.

Or Dwayne Wayne in A Different World.

Transition lenses don't seem to go totally clear when indoors. That seems to be the only issue with me personally. However, from what I am told, they are a better solution for driving or flying. M8

I understand your problem. I got Lasik, which got rid of the 'normal' glasses issue. I absolutely hated switching back and forth between clear and tinted glasses.

How difficult is it to have prescription sunglasses made in the US? Do you need to go to a doctor first, etc., and does that make it more expensive? (In my country, the optical shop can have everything done for you and they usually have a resident doctor who checks the grade given to you.)

We have that system too but there are other places that require you to bring your prescription to them. That would be more like a boutique setup.
