No matter the lighting conditions, Transition HD+ has you covered.
Are the lenses polarized or non-polarized?
Our racquet-sport lenses are not polarized as polarized lenses block horizontal glare - while this is useful for everyday wear, it can have a negative effect on your depth perception on the court. When you need to see the ball clearly to time your swing, a polarized lens will be an impediment. Regardless, all of our lenses are still 100% UVA/B protective.
I want to try these on, where can I do that?
For now we are only selling from our website so that if you need anything we can help you directly 👊 - however, we do free returns for 30 days after buying so that you can try them on at home without committing. Check out our full return policy here.
Do you do prescription in this frame?
We currently do not, as prescription is hard to put into a shield style frame without adding an insert, which would compromise our frame design.

- EVElizabeth V.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars7 months agoFunctional and Beautiful!
I was introduced to Ría by another Pickleball player and I’m so glad I took her advice. Light weight and comfortable. I love that I was able to customize the classic white with navy and coral nose piece as well as a coral arm sleeve. The glasses stay in place during active play but are not too tight at the temples. So comfortable I don’t even take them off between matches. Can’t wait for the weather to change so I can enjoy outdoor play with the transitional lens without glare. Worth the price!

The Model One Transition HD+ lenses allow me to see the court and ball more clearly. The glare is effectively reduced even though the lenses are not very darkly shaded. I like not having a framed bottom because it doesn't get in my view like my old glasses by other brand. I'm glad i switched from polarized to RIA because the depth perception issues I was having no longer exist with the RIA glasses. The transition aspect is great because I don't have to keep putting on and taking off sunglasses based on what side of court I'm on or the rolling in and out of clouds. The only small downside is that the nose piece is harder or tighter than I'm used to, but on the positive side, the glasses haven't slipped down my nose either.
- TTVHVerified BuyerI do not recommend this productRated 1 out of 5 stars2 weeks agoNose padding interferes with vision
As soon as I put mine on, I knew I would return. I could see the large padding around the nose area in my field of vision and it was very distracting. I don't have this issue with my regular sunglasses. I'm disappointed because I wanted to get a pair of glasses that I could wear for protection for indoor as well as outdoor on cloudy days. The design just wasn't workable for me.
- PLPaul L.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars3 weeks agoLike these a lot!
I bought the transitions along with changeable clear lens and regular Court HD.... all 3 serve a purpose and work well. I play in bright sun in AZ a lot and today, facing direct sun and then other times more in the shade, the transition lens worked great. Lenses are really easy to change over. Comfort is just right and they feel very light on your face. Highly recommend!
- MSMarcia S.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars4 weeks agoGreat glasses
I bought these glasses for playing Pickleball. I have been wearing them for two weeks, some inside play and some outside play. Very little fogging even though we have had very humid weather here. Inside they cut the lights a bit and improve my sight of the ball. Outside they do a good job of replacing my sunglasses. Pleased with the purchase and hope to wear for years to come.
