    Rx Sunglasses - Wrap around - Anyone have some?

    My current glasses are below:

    http://www.amazon.com/Pyramex-Fortre...rch_detailpage

    The tint is perfect, and they are bigger lenses so there are no "blind spots" from the frame.

    Anyone riding with these type of glasses in prescription? I saw Oakley makes one where you clip in the prescription lens behind the actual sunglass lenses.

    I am not doing contacts so dont even want to discuss that.

    looking for that mirror type of lense like the ones above, that you can see indoor and out.

    I've got these.

    They work well, vision is pretty good. Obviously not as good as a normal pair of glasses, but the lens's are close enough to your eyes that it doesnt matter too much.

    I quite easily got used to them compared to my regular everyday raybans I use for seeing.

    In addition to the fact they are sunglasses and provide pretty good protection.

    I crashed in them, apparently I've hit a branch as the sunglass front lens is scratched up. Unforuntalty thats pushed the lens into my face and cut my nose a little, and one of the arms snapped off (both lens and arm easily replaceable)
    Altho my nose got a tiny cut, and minor bruising around my face... I can only imagine what would have happened if I wasnt wearing them (or my raybans)

    I've tried safety glasses like the one in the link and they don't work for me. Too heavy. I prefer a cheap but "real" pair of sunglasses like Suncloud.

    I have 2 sets of Rx sunglasses, both perform extremely well ... to me.

    I got them with photochromic lenses and the lenses are swappable.

    Depending on your Rx, if you have reasonable distance vision and just need to see your map/GPS/computer/HR monitor, have you considered Dual Cycling glasses? They are reasonably economical.

    Not cycling specific but I use Revision Sawfly ballistic glasses with the RX insert. Cost me about $100 for a basic set with 2 lenses (smoke and clear) and the RX insert was $25. Great field of vision and replacement lenses are ~$20, best thing about them at least for me is that you can use them as safety glasses at work and ballistic glasses at a range if you shoot.

    Any place that sells glasses will have a selection of sun glasses that they will make in your rx. But I had laser surgery so I don't have to worry about it anymore. Best decision I've ever made.

    Didn't know Oakley was doing an insert. Their claim of distinction was single layer rx sport glasses. I had the first gen M frames where the prescription was inserted into a cutout hole of the wraparound lens. Now use flak jackets where the entire lens is ground prescription. Good stuff, not cheap. I'm not a good candidate for laser eye as my vision is now shifting due to old age!

    ESS RX-Insert for Oakley SI M-frame.

    The insert only works with the Oakley SI Ballistic M-frame 2.0 and I think 3.0.

    ESS is a subsidiary of Oakley

    I'm now on my third pair of RX Oakley's and I couldn't be more pleased. Great glasses. One pair of regular Flak Jackets and two Flak Jacket XLJ's

    Just recently received my Flak Jacket XLJ's in the Prizm Trail Rx lens. They're incredible. It's tough to realize just how crappy the quality of optics are in most sunglasses until you put a set of Oakleys on.

    sportrx.com is where I got my rx sunglasses from. They make both inserts and custom lenses. The tints/reflection/glare/reflection/antifog can all be customized. Lots of style options and very informative and friendly customer service.
