Had a pair of Photocromatic glasses for about 6 years now and there is
no yellowing, or variance from the original colour whatsoever.

No problems here in that regard either. My current photochromatics are
from the local branch of an Israeli brand. They have lousy scratch
resistance but good optical quality and warranty backup. I'll be using a
different supplier next time though, probably Varilux, with whom I've
never had *any* problems, including discolouration. Cheers
