Ta. Still keeping options for the missus. I think she's more comfortable using contacts with clear glasses over them now but prescrip glasses might be better for longer rides where contacts get a bit 'meh' or off-road where you don't want crap in your eyes.
My other half went with contacts and a pair of Rudy’s, but unlike her I can’t bear touching my eyes so contacts were a no-no.
I’m chuffed with the Jawbreakers as they have a massive area for the prescription part of the lens; it helps me spot when she’s about to jump me for the town sign sprint!
Maybe I don't want to give my other half that kind of advantage... hmm... :D
Lost my cheap Chinese prescription lensed raybans, and got my local opticians to make up some lenses for the same rayban’s I brought cheap off eBay.
Cost £70 for the lenses and I think I paid £35 for the rayban sunglasses off eBay.
I’m spending more getting some clear prescription inserts for two pairs of bolle’s that I’ll use for long distance rides..
I have these and they are awesome; inserts can fuck off
I bought some fake pocs from aliexpress and they came with some corrective inserts
A kind of small pair of glasses that clip into the real sunnies.
For £30 I got some prescription lenses for the inserts and so for about £45 I was set
They lasted about 3 years before the insert cracked
Not a terrible option
How's the visibility if you're pretty tucked down? I find myself overstretching my neck just because I'm looking straight at the frame of my glasses or over it.
It’s pretty good. I’ve got quite a daft/aggressive saddle-to-bar drop and I can still see where I’m going when I’m in the drops. It’s not like I’m rocking a pair of Dennis Taylor’s but it’s enough that I let gravity help as much as possible on the descents.
