  • Glasses with Sun glasses

    I wear glasses, and want to know if there are officers out there that switch from prescription to sunglasses, or wear prescription sunglasses like Willey X or other brands?

    It's a PITA but I wanna be able to see so I keep a couple of these (similar anyway) around:

      We have a local place that runs a deal like 2 pairs of glasses for 180. I got one pair regular and one pair tinted.

          Lasik here. Worth every penny and more.

          Seriously, look into it if your near sighted. Its getting cheaper and better all the time. If I had it to do over again, I would in a heartbeat.

            I use those clip ons everday all day. Work great! I like to have the ability to remove them and see without tint and still have Rx glasses on.

              I switched to Transitions lenses. They work great.

                I was gonna get transitions but there are times when I am in the sun when I don't want sunglasses on so the clip on work well for me. Although I do like transitins.

                  I wear prescription Oakleys now also, and they even have Transitions lenses:

                  It's the best of both worlds- I can wear them inside and outside, day or night. They kind of hug your face, so indoors they look a little darker than most transitions lenses would to an onlooker, but to the wearer you'll hardly notice a difference. A few people occasionally ask why you're wearing sunglasses inside or at night, just because they DO look like sunglasses, but it's well worth it. I'd definitely recommend them!

                    I wear Oakley wire frame prescription eyeglasses with Transition lenses. They actually look like eyeglasses, but they fit great. I only wear them every few days, but I like the hell out of them.

                      I just got Prescription Oakleys. If you go through www.usstandardissue.com you can the prescription lenses and frames for $195.00. Hard to beat that price!

                        I have always worn prescription polarized sun-glasses (near-sighted) until dark, then switch to clear lenses. (just so you know I'm not "one of those" that wears sunglasses at inappropriate times) Have just ordered new glasses. Because I'm old and need bi-focals, I ordered the no line bi-focal, in a transition lens. Because the transition lens doesn't get dark enough to suit me while inside a vehicle, I will buy a pair of clip-ons like the ones shown earlier. I work the highway. If I answered many calls where I was going from full sunlight to a dim lit room, I would probably do something different. I have had problems once or twice in my career where I went inside a building while still wearing my sunglasses and everything was too dark. So I corrected the mistake by pulling my glasses off. Lucky for me that nothing bad ever happened because of my mistake. (I can, and do every now and then, qualify without my glasses, so losing the prescription sunglasses did not pose a bigger problem.)

                          Lasik worked for me. Now I have no concerns about fuzzy vision after removing prescription sunglasses if I have to move from bright sunlight to a dark area. Still gotta let your eyes adjust but you don't have to fight the fuzzies.

                          Lasik @ 44yoa resulted in a need for reading glasses. A need for reading glasses isn't likely to be a safety issue. Fuzzy vision (I was 20/400) if I lost my glasses / prescription sunglasses was, in my case, a safety issue. Contact lenses were a PITA especially on boat patrol days. They dried out and irritated my eyes half way through a twelve hour boat day and any little piece of dust rendered me virtually sightless.

                          Ono bi-focal sunglasses - $90 from Cabela's. Got two years out of my last pair before someone else broke them.
