Michigan people can i get a little help?

Hey guys, short and simple i have been looking/ talking to people all around me concernin PRESCRIPTION TINT and where i can get a prescription in MI, i don't care where it is, if you know anyone who has one and you can ask them how/where they got it or know someone that might hook me up i would be forever indebted to you. Any information, I don't care if i have to pay for an eye exam if it ends up in me gettin a prescription it is all good. Thanks fellas.

Go to a cheap eyeglass shop, and there is no form In Indiana they just put it on your perscription sheet (reciept), the best way to explain it to the doc is that you weld or work with computers, these jobs for some reason give light sensitivity. But ask up front, no reason to pay for the exam if the doc's gonna be a problem.

Re: Michigan people can i get a little help?

Yea i figured i would walk in with sunglasses and squint a lot lol, i am trying to see if my regular eye appointment is coming up soon. Question tho, it doesn't seem like even if you complained about the sun that they would offer something like that, do you think they would ever suggest it without you bringing it up?

Re: Michigan people can i get a little help?

My dad checked into this because the light really does bother him. He did get a perscription for it from his eye doctor BUT the Dr told him that EVERY vehicle he drove had to have tint. If he ever got pulled over driving a vehicle WITHOUT tint they could give him a ticket and take away his perscription for having it. He thought it was too much of a hassle and didn't bother. He had about 35 or 40% light blocking tint on his Dakota and never got pulled over. I guess cops don't hassle old guys for tint. I got nailed twice for having 35% on my S10 and one time the cop went out of his way to pull over and let about 5 cars in front of me go by him so he could get behind me and pull me over for it. Not going to mess with it again. I'll just move to a state where it's legal(like Indiana or Arizona)

i am going to have to call BS because how would the cop know if you have a prescription or not if you were to be driving a car without tint?

If you HAVE the prescription, AND have the tint, then when you are pulled over, and questioned about it, you present the peice of paper that says you have the rx.

Re: Michigan people can i get a little help?

the only way i could see that you had to have it on all vehicles would be if it was something that was put on the back of a license, like corrective lenses or motorcycle endorsement.

I believe he had to take the perscription to the Secretary of State to get something put on his license to make it legal. The perscription alone wasn't enough.
