    Getting sick of wasting daily disposal contact lenses each ride, and considering something like these http://www.gosportsspex.co.uk/RudyProjectExceptionPrescriptionSportsGlasses.asp

    Any experience?

    Harry, I seem to recall your sunglasses looking similar?

    I’m awkward when it comes to glasses, they have to fit perfect or im not happy. Are these types easy for opticians to adjust if necessary?

    And are they fairly lightweight? With the prescription lenses, they appear to be quite bulky – my prescription is piss poor (-5.75 / -5.25), which generally means heavier lenses.

    Cheers 🙂

    No idea about the prescription lens bit, but would definitely recommend the Rudy Project Rydons. I have had mine for a few years now and I am very pleased with them.

    My prescription is quite extreme.

    +6.00 / -2.25 / 15 – +6.00 / -1.5 / 160 …… whatever that means.

    Managed to get a pair of single-vision lenses and frames with a single tint from Specsavers for £54. Not too heavy and kinda look a bit like ol’ skool ‘Top Gun’ Ray Bans:-

    just purchased a pair of adidas evil eye pros with rx inserts only worn when commuting to work as yet but am quite pleased with them.

    My mate uses Adidas with inserts. He once lost the inserts when the glasses were clipped to his top. Bit of a costly loss I think so be careful.

    Sorry just sotted this. Mine are the Rudy Project Rydons. Got glasses and inserts from Westbrooks and then took inserts to Specsavers to get fitted with prescription lenses. Inserts cosr about 30 quid. The glasses are the photochromaric which is a good idea otherwise when you fo indoors you can’t see

    Well, I’ve got my dream glasses now. When I used to bbe able to wear contact lenses I used to love Oakleys for running and cycling.

    This week I found a local optician who do Oakleys with prescription lenses. They simply take the Oakley lenses out of the shades and insert prescription lenses that they make themselves. ordered a pair of Thursday and picked them up this morning (Saturday). Brilliant service and £100 more than Oakley prescriptions.
