You can also get them with full lens correction. I am 1D long-sighted; so I needed reading glasses a bit earlier than other people. If I wear these 1D wrap-arounds I can see most things and have perfect distance vision. Bifocals with more power I don't really like because they put the road immediately in front of me out of focus. You can buy adhesive tiny lenses that you stick on the bottom of one plain lens so you have one eye to read with and the other for looking ahead with a full field.

:roll:
No glasses! :D :D :D
They don't play well with my contact lenses for a start, get wet,steam up, get lost and are one more thing I spent years and money getting rid of. To have to look for that one pair when going for a ride. No way.

Yes you can...

Last time I was in the optician (not Vision Express) they told me about them but most of the time my eyes are too dry for them. Used to wear plain contact lenses years ago and had started off asking about them because of my problem of glasses steaming up and more particularly sliding off my nose. I’ve solved the latter problem with these cheap rubber legs... brilliant!

That's A Bingo! :D
My solution to the other issue was to buy Algha aviator frames cheap and have them fitted with prescription photochromic lenses.

Can't even use varifocal contacts. Funny eyes.
I need this thing for one use only.
