Anyone know how i can get cycling glasses with prescription lenses without paying an arm & a leg for Oakleys etc?
Hot deal for those with better eyesight, heat added.

I too would like to know how to get prescription lenses ?

Yeah, I do Phil.

Go and see an optician ?

Been down that road myself, Tescos opticians did me some inserts but never really got on with them, my eyes aren't too bad so just use standard lenses now, my main problem is astigmatism, all depends on your prescription really.

You shouldn't be reading when you are cycling.

You might cause an accident.

Clones from China... although most have crappy plastic.

My main (real) set are some BBB ones.

This is the inserts btw, and I hate them. Pretty much use contact lenses for all riding instead.

Never use glasses myself when cycling but good price and heat added for those that do want them

for those that need prescription lenses, why not by daily disposable contact lenses and then you are free to buy whatever cycling glasses you want...

Polarised sunglasses are great for driving and cycling and you can buy a decent pair for about £10.

My eyes water like crazy when I cycle, makes me look like I'm crying so I stopped. I'm looking for a solution to stop it so maybe some glasses will fix the problem.

I never used to use cycling glasses until I got a Beetle stuck in my eye (_;)
Needless to say this was one of the most unpleasant things to ever happen to me and I wont even touch a bike without some form of eye protection!

Like most people I'm squeamish about eyes, having a large beetle flailing around, flapping its wings in your eye is akin to someone trying to poke it out.. It also scratched it quite badly and was painful for days after

Oh beetle eye sounds awful! Am going to get some of these as normal shades as they are so comfy!

Ah so it fixed the problem?

Btw this is a serious message, a few weeks ago a friend of mine was cycling to pick up his car from an M.O.T. and a car hit him on a roundabout, it was the driver's fault, he just didn't look and obviously didn't stop. My friend was wearing a helmet and the helmet (some £80 worth) was cracked, he wasn't far at all from home, and if he hadn't worn the helmet he would be probably dead or sucking his food through a straw confined to a wheelchair. It doesn't matter how far you cycle, always wear a helmet.

Will be buying a few pairs to match my stabilisers!

if they stop bugs going in my eyes at 30mph then they work for me.

100% fixes the problem, its the wind contact with your eye that makes it dry, so your eyes water to try lube it up.. the glasses just act a physical barrier

i generally dont cycle with glasses and have taken flies to the eye at some high speeds, and get a few in my mouth sometimes, its pretty disgusting.. my biggest problem is i dont look after glasses, break them and then i dont have any to use..

at £3 a pop id probably get a couple of pairs as long as they stay on my face cause im likely to lose or break them fairly quick

I really like polarising glasses for driving. Had a pair that got lost and wondered where to buy from. Apparently fishing suppliers sell them (polarising cuts out reflection from water). I bought a few pairs from FishTec. Only downside is that I now get their catalogue by mail despite having zero interest in angling

they also have ones with 3 replaceable lenses (dark, yellow and clear) for 4.99,

...bought a set a few years back and use them every day on my commute. Good for keeping the kamikaze insects from pinging your eyeballs.

yeah, i know what you mean, especially at the moment ,they are everywhere!! now i just need something to stop them all going in my mouth!!

Got mine to replace a pair that were not in great condition. I have a cord with an adjuster to make sure they stay on. I'm also a disposable daily led wearer. Try Lenson for affordable contacts.

I use a pair of Bolle safety glasses. They are pretty cool looking and wrap around to keep all the flies et al at bay.

I would suggest buying 3M outdoor safety glasses, cheap and cheerful BUT they are ultra tough and meet all safety standards!

Buy these then once they have arrived from China send them to these guys who will put in a grey tinted lens for £20 odd quid (depending on your prescription).

Hey presto; Oakley Jawbone-a-likes with prescription lenses for about £35!!!!

Doesn't matter if they break every year as the official ones are almost 10x the price

Much better quality ones HERE.

Screwfix were giving away Dewalt safety glasses not so long ago, ideal for cycling when it's not too sunny, which is most of the year here
Even when they're not being given away I think they're only about £5.

Edit: OK, they're £6.50 here

2 pairs just purchased, at that price I don't care if they last a couple of weeks

Mmmm. Cheapo chinese glasses.

Many thanks, got a pair. They've also got all sorts of other cycling gear.

Just got a pair, which replaced my Aldi cycling glasses bought around 4 years ago - which have survived a head on crash, and being thrown in the bottom of a pannier bag etc.
Look to be good quality to me. So should hopefully last at least another 4 years!

"Tit glasses'

Thanks OP. I always break my sunglasses, so picked up three pairs: Cat 1 for walking & cycling; Cat 2 & Cat 3 to use whilst driving.

Hopefully they will also act as another pollen barrier - Hayfever is pretty damn bad today!

Great spot OP.

Got these last time round. No complaints at all. Take a punt, I say!
