Re: Prescription sunglasses for astigmatism
I've been using prescription Oakley for a few years now, they're awesome. With the wraps you can read signs in the peripheral vision space. Heck I like them so much all my frames are Oakley. Also they last forever. My flack jackets feel so good I wear them while the sun is going down with great visibility.
I just replaced my everyday frames by getting fitted at Oakley and then ordering the frames off ebay (saved $275), then had them direct shipped to the local shop and had them fit the lenses (prism, etc). I had them done in 7 days end to end. They will last twice as long as any other frame in the low end.
I would never wear inserts, but would like to go for surgery one day when they just run a tricorder over you and you're fixed.
I have no affiliation with Oakley. As said Maui Jim's might be an option as well. They're not as common up here in the colonies.
