You are one of only 2 who responded saying they had purchased some type of yellow glasses. I really appreciate your input.  Sounds as though your optomotrist/ophthalmologist was a sales person and not focused on your eyes.  Guess the supplier changed and your original lighter tint was not as easily found.  You deserved better service and should have been offered an alternative to match your first glasses.  Good luck.  I will stay away from the $10-$20 "As-Seen-On-TV" Offers.

Hi, there...

 

I had two sets as I battle seeing and driving at night. My first set was barely yellow, it had a very faint tint and worker wonderfully. They didn't change the color of objects, etc during the day and only had a yellow tint at night when there were lights from the front. However, I lost them and had to get another pair. This pair was so not the same. They were actually yellow and did not work at all. I got both pairs from an ophthalmologist, yet, one worked wonders and the other not at all :-)

 

Hope this helps :-)

Thanks for sharing and caring :-)

I had found two professional articles on night driving and coatings, but was curious about experiences with the yellow/amber TV glasses.  Thank you.

I have a Retinal Specialist in addition to an Ophthalmologist I visit annually.  Was curious about the $10-$20 TV and flyer glasses.  Have never noticed anyone wearing them so thought I would check the AARP community. Thank you.
