If I use my reactalight glasses on a road at a certain time of day. My head is in sunshine but the side of the road where I’m peddling is in shadow my glasses go dark and I can’t see bugger all in the shadows so I can’t see the road properly. Given up on the reactalights and using my normal clear prescription work glasses if the sun gets in my eyes I put on a cycling cap.

Absolutely excellent, and at £11 damaging or losing them is not a big worry.

Thanks for that.

I use Bolle safety glasses from Screwfix for cycling but I hadn't spotted these. They could be very useful in the workshop.

They are and I was wearing mine this morning when bleeding the brakes on a BMW R90S.

Just put mine on for the first time: Bollé IRIDPSI2. I hadn't realised that they were bifocal: reading area only at the bottom. Might work fine but it confused me for 20s! : - )

Even better than "one size fits all" socks.
Think I'll pass on those (as well as the socks), but at least the socks are less dangerous.
