Default best night time glasses?

Hey guys just came back to NYC and at night I cant see anything. the glare is rediculous with all the lights. I got a pair of glasses that I switch out clear and tinted lenses. Anybody knowa good pair of glasses to wear at night?

Try some yellow tinted glasses. They work good for knocking out some glare IMO!

mine are RX and have anti glare lenses. I read somewhere you can get some glass stuff that is anti glare you put on your lenses, not sure if it works or not.

Wiley X transitional lenses have worked well for me over the years. There are a little pricey but you definitely get what you pay for.

+1 on the Wiley x transition. I think mine are call brick and they work day or night. A little over $100
