Thinking about getting some prescription sunglasses for running. Having just done a quick search, it seems like a bit of a minefield, though. I just want a good basic pair of glasses but I don't mind spending more if the quality justifies it. Does anybody have any recent experience/advice to share or can recommend a retailer.
I got mine from Specsavers, as part of a two for one offer. I ended up spending more than I normally would to get the frames I wanted - an Osiris wrap around design (I'd have to check which one), but I figured I was getting two pairs, so why not?
They aren't 'sports' frames, but they've worked out great for me.
I got a good pair from Spectacles Direct a couple of years ago that have an "optical insert". Basically the prescription part clips in behind the tinted wrap around lenses.
The whole set cost about £25 and it came with four sets of lenses (mirrored, yellow, grey and black).
Not your fancy brands - but they do the job when out running or on the bike.
Thanks for the advice - I'll do some more digging later. I like the look of the Oakleys but not sure on the price tag....
