    Tifosi RX glasses?

    Anybody order a pair of the Tifosi direct fit in-frame Rx sunglasses?

    My bikeshop stocks them, and the quality seems really nice for the price.
    Also they were VERY responsive to my email request for info. Emailed them at 10 last night and there was a reply waiting in my inbox this morning.

    I'd like to hear about people's experiences ordering Rx through them.

    Looks like they have an adapter for the RX lenses. I think that's pointless because you'll never use them without the RX lens adapter; unless you wear contacts or don't need glasses all the time, which I'm guessing is not the reason you want these. You can't wear the RX adapter alone, so if it's getting dark you're screwed.

    There are quite a few places that sell sunglasses with adapters for RX online. If you want a good pair of RX shades, find a frame you like and have some mirror reflection lenses installed at any decent eye glass place.

    Tifosi has a RX prescription service. The use Carl Zeiss Inc. optical to create prescription lenses that fit directly into the Tifosi frame. Just like you would get from your local optometrist. Tifosi's marketing folks call this "Direct Fit". You bring your prescription to your LBS and they order from Tifosi.

    I'm interested in any feedback from folks that have "Direct Fit" prescription lens in Tifosi frames.

    Thanks in advance,

    DG
