- What prescription riding glasses and where from?
Not really wearing my contacts any more so looking for some prescription sports glasses that I can wear for road/mtb/driving/looking awsumz.
Apart from oakleys from an optician, what else can people recommend and where from? I’d rather not have something with an insert.Posted 2 years agoIHNMember
Buy some sunglasses that you like the look and price of (in my case, £14 from Mountain Warehouse)
Send them along with your prescription to Ciliary Blue and get them reglazed with Transitions lenses for about £60.
*edit – normal, dark, non-Transitions lenses will be even cheaper if that’s what you wantPosted 2 years agoBezSubscriber
I bought some Enduras and had them done by Ciliary Blue (who I’ve used for a couple of non-sports prescriptions as well). Trivex lenses, transitions and adaptive mirror coating (clear when clear, mirrored when dark) came in at £160. Initially had an issue with the lenses not being quite spot on in the frames but I sent them back and they sorted it. Now wondering whether I can bear to part with my M-Frames and six lenses, as they’re now sort of surplus to requirements 🙂

Any reason to not stick with contacts just for riding?
Mainly what I wear contacts for. It got way too expensive smashing up prescription glasses regularly. Plus I find the view with contacts is more open (even if wearing protective glasses, which I have to do with contacts in case of bugs and dust. Bolle safety specs – £6).Posted 2 years ago
