Right, I know there have been plenty of threads about this, but bear with me...
Having seen online that I can get prescription lenses [+5.50 w/ astigmatism] for basically any Oakley spec/sunny I fancy, I went into a few opticians in town to get some prices on Straight Jackets. Two places basically said "no problem" since they have a lens supplier that will do higher than the Oakley RX lenses, but two others sucked through their teeth and gave it "Oakley don't go higher than +2 for a reason", "the distortion will be awful" (x2), "we're not allowed to fit lenses stronger than +2" and other such excuses, since these places seemingly aren't able to supply the lenses I want.
Now... just for peace of mind, how strong is your prescription? Did you get them thinned (and to what)? And is the vision only distorted right at the periphery? Before I spend a load of cash, I'd like to know your experiences!
