    I'm looking for Day/Night cycling glasses. My Oakleys that I bought in 1992 have seen better days. I just can't seem to find a pair for day and night riding and I don wish to switch lenses. I welcome all suggestions. Grtz JD.

    I find that night lenses work fine during the day (as I often forget to switch them).

    X Tiger glasses on Amazon. They come with different lenses and have clear ones which are great for later in the year. Cheap too and do what cycling glasses are for keeping bugs out of your eyes. Large field of view which I like

    Photochromic lenses could be an option. They are clear in low light, but get tinted when it's bright. Might not be the best option for very sunny day, but should cover most of the year in Ireland.
    I got my gf Oakley Jawbreaker Photochromic and she is very happy.

    I have Oakley Jawbreaker Photocromatic lenses and they sound like what you are looking for OP. As another poster mentioned, they aren't ideal in really sunny weather, but they are more than a good compromise if you don't want the hassle of having to change lenses or glasses

    I find yellow lenses ok in the day light too. Not ideal in sun splitting the stones, but still better than non. I've fairly limited experience of photochromatic (pretty much Aliexpress ones which don't go that dark - no idea if that's the usual or not).

    I bought a pair of Siroko photochromic glasses and use them daily for commuting. They are comfortable, have vents for when you heat up and won’t break the bank. 100% recommend them
