After the positive result on my last purchase in Goggles4U, the of G4U Glasses 79012 with lenses 1.56 Photochromic Gray, I decided to purchase a second glasses with dark lenses, to use to drive.
As photochromic lenses on the other pair are great for use in the Sun. But, like all photochromic lens, they don't activate in vehicles, because the windshield filters ultraviolet rays (UV) they do Dim lenses. Then, unless you have a convertible car, to run comfortably on sunny days it is necessary a permanently dark lenses glasses.
I have one Spy sunglasses I quite like. I've had it for a few 8 years, and before he had a like three tramps armed stole. So I ended up buying another of the same model. But, He has no degree. Therefore, I can only use it when I'm using contact lenses, which lately has not been frequent.
I've always wanted a Sunglass with degree, but I've always postponed the acquisition because of the high cost. Purchase a single pair of glasses in Brazil already is expensive, and buy two virtually doubles the cost in most cases. And unlike sunglasses that can last for many years, an eyeglasses is only useful until the grade change. Furthermore, has the inconvenience of having to carry a second pair of glasses, because I don't like to leave items inside the car. After all, the car insurance, But what's inside of him not. But with Goggles4U I noticed that finally had the opportunity to acquire my sunglasses with spending very little and I did.
I chose the frame G4U 2104, It's made of metal and acetate. The black color of the frame matches the black lens, What helps to give an appearance of sunglasses. Her cost is $ 15,95, but with the coupon G4U40, It's still worth, He went for only $ 9,57.
The lenses 1.57 CR39, the only ones that can be colored, are free with any frame. In the options we have black color, Brown, blue, green, Grey, yellow and pink. For each color you can choose between three levels of intensity: clear, average, or dark, or even a shade gradient, It starts at the top of the lens and dark will lighten until you reach the bottom.
I was somewhat in doubt about the colour of the lenses. Many shops have only gray, more to Goggles4U There's ash and also has black. I was in doubt between black medium, dark grey or dark black. Fearing the dark black could be very dark, I ended up choosing the medium black. Seems to have been a wise choice, because it's comfortable driving with him both in the Sun and in the light of a cloudy day.
As of costume, the pair of glasses came in the box Goggles4U, made in sturdy plastic and lined with velvet fabric on the inside. Inside the glasses came sealed in a plastic bag, and involved in a Microfiber fabric, which also serves for cleaning, This time in blue. And once again, a Goggles4U sent a couple of extra platelets, which is great.
As well as with the last pair, the Assembly seemed well made, with well aligned in the Center and top of the frame, and with the excesses on the thickness of the lens having stayed mostly on the inside. The frame is comfortable and also fit very well in my face.
To make some comparisons, I got also the G4U Glasses 79012 with lenses 1.56 Photochromic Gray to photograph them together.
After I got the Spy, that is of course much more curved and that, therefore, covers the entire field of view, something that is not possible with degree lenses. But in terms of transparency both strike me as very similar.
It was already night, so I had to wait until the next day to make a comparison of my new sunglasses with Degree – G4u 2104 with lenses 1.57 CR39 with G4U Glasses 79012 with lenses 1.56 Photochromic Gray with activated lenses by the Sun. But the next day I got. Note that the new glasses still dyed lenses are a little darker than the photochromic lenses enabled.
Finally I got my old Nike Flexon 4182 045 com slow Essilor Transitions 1.67 to join the comparison. Apparently the photochromic lens of Goggles4U dark as far as Transitions, and both are still a little lighter than the average black dyed lenses my new glasses.

Was to have arrived before, but the post office in my town used to forward packets to the wrong distribution center instead of delivering, then they need to go back to the center right and it ends up taking over two days. This is something that happens with certain frequency. Postal standard of quality.
I don't know exactly why the Goggles4U failed to send directly from Pakistan. Maybe by cost, Maybe because the u.s. packages arrive faster here in Brazil. I do not know why, but the IRS seems to quickly release u.s. First Class packages, but stalling enough with packages from China and other countries, Although everyone is treated in Curitiba. Brazil's quality standard.
A Goggles4U States that there are no import taxes and really there was no. The package has been releasing quickly and without taxation.

Once again I was pleased with my purchase on Goggles4U. Where in Brazil I could buy a Sunglass with degree for just $ 9,57? Or even $ 19,52 including the freight? Even with Dilma and EN doing everything to get in the way, with Real devalued, IOF abusive and all, are still only about R$ 75,00 for a pair of glasses in Brazil would cost easily triple or even more.
Last Wednesday I took the new sunglasses with Degree – G4u 2104 with lenses 1.57 CR39 and also the G4U Glasses 79012 with lenses 1.56 Photochromic Gray to my clinic ophthalmologist. Both were conferred with the recipe and are correct.
