If you require very strong prescription eyewear like I do (-9.00 and beyond for me), you know that the options for sunglasses are slim. Besides clip-ons, what else is there? SportRX.com has a wide selection of nearly every major brand of stylish frames plus knowledgeable staff to help you make your prescription sunglasses become reality.
When you first visit the SportRX website, prepare to be overwhelmed. Thankfully, you can narrow down your selection by using the handy “shop by” feature on the left column. Sort by brand, sport, price and more.
Because of my nearsightedness, I consulted with one of the experts at SportRX to help me choose. With a lot of help, I chose this pair of Oakley Crosslink frames.
When choosing the actual lenses, you’ll find SportRX walks you through many, many options. Here, I chose polarized lenses. Note that if you do, the ultra-thin high-index 1.7 lenses are unavailable. As you can see, Transitions (darkens in sunlight) are an option, too.
If you’re crusty like me, you can even choose bifocals or progressive focus lenses. I chose the progressive focus. Lens color is pretty straightforward: Dark Grey, amber or dark green.Mirrored finishes are really cool, and there are so many colors to choose from! Want something less showy? The “Flash” mirror finish is a little more subtle. I chose the Silver Flash Mirror for a hint of reflection.You can pick an anti-reflective finish, but in my case, it comes with the mirrored finish.
My order was completed in just over a week (there was a holiday weekend). SportRX packed in a large cleaning cloth and a small bottle of cleaning solution.
Here’s a dorky selfie because I couldn’t build up the courage to get someone to take a snapshot. They fit really well! The silver flash mirror finish is more apparent in this shot.
I don’t think I would have tried to attempt something new and (relatively) stylish, but the helpful people at SportRX really helped me navigate the staggering selection, and made useful suggestions that really made the difference for me. Thank, SportRX!
