I wear contacts and occasionally glasses. I lost an expensive pair of prescription sunglasses on a paddle boarding excursion .. knocked off by a wave, glasses swept away at sea ... Later, I purchased an inexpensive (less than $20) pair of prescription glasses from Zenni Optical online. (My eye doctor was totally comfortable giving me my prescription and PD). They are now my go-to glasses in the ocean! Not only can I see well with them, they are "stylish" as well and if the ocean claims them, oh well, I'm out $20 ....
I will have to ck into that. My prescription sunglasses were more expensive than I care to think about.
I wear the contacts with sunglasses when I'm out and about. My boyfriends father lost his prescription oakley sunglasses by a rogue wave at maho though. Luckily he had another pair, but that was a good 150 he lost to the ocean...I always pack more than one for that reason.
Great idea. I will have to get my prescription and do the same. Thanks!
My husband is an avid golfer and wears progressive bifocal glasses normally. He gave Zennioptical a whirl and ordered special prescription sunglasses for putting and is tickled to death with them. Again, we were shocked at the quality.
I've been buying zennioptical glasses for a few years now. My prescription is fairly strong, and changes almost every year. I order the thinnest lenses in progressive bifocal, top of the line coatings, clip on sunglasses and the price was $200 including shipping to Canada.
I like all the options they offer (which adds to price) but still a good deal ...
Thanks for the information, I may need to check into this as I'm notorious for losing glasses.
I used Zenni Optical also, took my $400 rx down to $55. We also did that for Chan's glasses too! Loved the RX sunglasses, but now I just use the $1 store ones after spending $120K for transplants,, hmm maybe I should have just stuck with Zenni, could have had like 3 months of vacation and sick each back, along with serious pain. Oh well live and learn and then you get luvs, or Tr**ans.
