Ambervision were As Seen on TV sunglasses that were heavily advertised in the 80s and 90s. I found a factory sealed pair on eBay and decided to give them a try.

  • James maybe it's because I'm 64 and still groovy but I think you look way better in those than the steam punk little round ones you wear which imo make you look more bug like?😎

  • I remember the girls still wearing bellbottoms in the 80s and 90s. But I dressed like a greaser (did not know it was called that back then) and knew people dressed like joggers. I thought nothing of it as I have always seen style as an individual thing. Not something that you did to fit in. Everyone I knew dressed diffrently.

  • I was one of the 15,000,000 who wore AmberVision back then. I liked them for their function--everything looked bright and clear--and because I appreciated the commercials.

  • Oversized glasses frames are back in, James. Look at any news show and you'll see people they're interviewing over zoom are wearing these gigantic frames. It may be partially due to COVID being able to be transmitted via the eyes so big frames kill 2 birds with one stone as both corrective lenses and protective eyewear.

  • They are a variant of the Aviator style which never went out of style, but I personally think are super tacky. I can understand the arguments from both sides tho.

  • I had a pair of these in the late 80s/early 90s. They were actually pretty good. They disagree in a move. Wish I could fine them again. What was "revolutionary" was blocking blue light. I believe they were a cheaper copy cat of Blueblockers. For memories: ircloud.info/get/fy-lm-h-y/mn-nf3Ronq2JnMQ.html

  • OMG who could forget these commercials and the horrible product that somehow managed to become an icon but not a good one. So yes grandparents had some an aunt or 2 but I do think back about this product to myself at times when thinking of gimmick products like a fidget spinners and squiggle pens. the commercials were very 80's and they were not cheap but i was a kid soooo... I like the frames

  • People get so obsessed with "polarized" which is largely a buzzword for gullible people. Unless you are doing an activity where you are looking at a long flat surface, like fishing or something, it really doesn't matter.

  • I had a pair - I'll look for them I still think I do! You weren't supposed to wear them at night but it really cut down on the glare so where there were street lights or lots of ambient light I would. The styling was never really that "cool" but they were functional and not that expensive. I also like them because the were NOT polarized - even in the 90's some cars and motorcycles had LCD displays and with polarized lenses you couldn't read them so Ambervision was a good choice... Never knew they sold 15M pairs that's crazy!

  • I remember these. Almost everyone in my family and family friends had a pair. It started out with one person, having the pair. But everyone liked how they worked. And, then it wasn't long after that everyone had a pair. I even had a pair. One of my favorite lenses of all time for sunglasses.

  • 0:50 Some or other IRcloud channel had told me that "Lifetime" in "Lifetime Guarantee" means "lifetime of a product" not "lifetime of a customer". So it's a guarantee of replacement as long as this product is not officially discontinued. PS: oh, that paper slip defines it differently.

  • I am 79 and have the beginning of macular degeneration. My ophthalmologist recommended wearing blue-blocking glasses. They are amber colored. Because I wear tri-focals as well, I use clip-on lenses. I don't care if any of the things I wear look funny or out of style. I'm trying to preserve what assets I have remaining.

I remember these glasses and I've always wondered if they actually worked meaning really good. I don't think your review answered that question at all I think the only thing you said was that very Amber
