Looking for sunglasses that I can get with perscription lens. I know that some perscriptions cant be made into. It sort of makes me nervous wearing my good glasses riding and they dont offer enough eye protections. And info would be great

It's what I use. Peformace has other inexpensive glasses with inserts. They can fill the script for you - be sure to get the pupil distance ("pd") on your script- for a fair price.

The only downside is fogging. You get twice as many lenses!

Oakley does any lens in any frame in script. All done with 1 lens not 2, so you can get a cycling specific glass and not worry about the fogging... you only get 1 set of eyes, treat them right...

I had my script put into my Maui Jim's. The optician sent the glasses right to Maui Jim-$$$ but nice.

I find my regular prescription glasses to be better for mtbing then my cycling glasses because they don't tend to fog up as bad. Knock on wood I have had little or no problems with them as a result of mtbing. Doing trail work on the other hand tends to scratch them right up every year.

Switching to road biking, every once in a while like last night I forget to wear my cycling glasses and I always regret it. My cycling glasses are far more aerodynamic then my prescription glasses on the road and therefore are far better due to less wind in my eyes. Eventually I will get prescription cycling glasses for the road.

My recommendation to you is, if you are getting prescription cycling glasses for the trail only, I would tend to get something well vented and less aerodynamic so they will fog less. The fogging tends to be a real problem as the temps start to get colder and especially when the temps drop below 32 the fog can turn to ice and then it doesn't go away when you get started up again.

Get Lasik surgery and forget the glasses.
