They are not sunsensor, they are not clear. Stay a very dark tint
Linda responded on Feb 9, 2017
With some of these vintage sunsensor glasses, you will need to put them in a black case for about 10-15 minutes in order for them to go back to clear. They are deadstock from the 1980s, so not all of them go back to clear as easily as others. The lens technology of the time wasn't up to today's standards. Remember, these are vintage (30+ years old). I always welcome customers to contact me first before leaving a negative review if they have any issues with their purchase. I will gladly issue a full refund upon receipt of the returned glasses.

Very cute sunglasses. Thank you so much!!
Hi. My name is Linda Loca and I'm a Collectaholic
I've been a crazy collector of anything and everything vintage since I was a teenager - clothing, eyeglasses, fabric, purses, shoes, furniture, decor and tchotchkes - my collection is expansive, spanning over seven decades, and bordering on madness.
I grew up in Las Vegas where my dad was the bass player for Ella Fitzgerald and Etta James. The early exposure to neon, nightclubs and showgirls left a lasting imprint on me.
I initially started selling my own vintage glasses on Etsy, as a way to whittle down an insane amount of stuff. I have since been actively seeking out old deadstock from warehouses on the coasts, as well as top of the line, OOAK frames from the 20s through the 70s.
I'm a writer by trade. Linda Loca is a pen name I picked up along the way. I've written for the Chicago Tribune, Chicago Magazine, The Reader, Salon.com, MrSkin.com (another story for another day).
My main focus was investigative journalism with an emphasis in modern subcultures, as well as creative non-fiction, but I've recently started to dabble in fiction. I still write freelance on occasion, but Etsyland has started to gobble up all my time and attention, and for that, I am so grateful to all my customers.
