Night riding glasses

I'm looking for a nice pair of clear glasses to wear at night that are clear and doesn't have halos. I've got a pair of cheap safety glasses that I sometimes wear but on coming traffic and streetlights really mess me up with the halos. Any suggestions on a reasonable priced pair of clear lens glasses?

Try a pair of yellow lenses. I have a $10 pair I think I got from a dealer that work great.

I bought a pair of glasses from HD. Pricey, transition lenses, but I've worn them consistently now for about 3 months in all types of lighting from bright sun to night time and have had zero issues with them.

I'm not an optometrist but don't buy cheap night glasses. Night ridding is worse than having sun glare buy good specs with yellow tint. Love mine but don't like riding in the dark any more.

Don't get anything with a tint. Yes, they might reduce glare, but any tint also reduces the amount of light transfer through the lenses.

We'll used the yellow out working on the highway. Do a great job of cutting out the glare.

Very interesting article. I've tried the yellow tinted glasses and they just didn't work for me. I guess with the heat of the summer I'm finding myself riding more at night. I'm definitely going to have to check on AR coated lenses.

been using these for years. light weight, good wind management no glare, and can wear them as the sun goes down. They are not cheap but what is good vision worth?

Little pricey but go to the dealership, try on the ones that sit well with your face - Was told that when on, if you can look straight down and there is no gap between the foam and your face that you can see through, you have found the ones that fit your face - Get the ones with the Transition lenses and you are set - I have had mine for about 3 seasons now and JUST last weekend noticed that I may need new foam - Provide all the wind protect I need and change from tint to clear with the big yellow ball goes to bed for the night

Worth every penny in my book

I use these and they have worked well for me.

The interchangeable lenses and case designed for them is really convenient too. They have outstanding clarity as well.
