If any one wants to try prescription lens in cycling glasses on the cheap, this was my tight arsed solution :oops:

Buy these...

(I must admit they were only £8 when I ordered them during a FB promotion - actual frames/outer protection are awful)

The lens/nose piece with the fit in these...

I had an contact lens test at specsavers a few years back and signed up to their monthly payment scheme for daily disposable lenses. Only £6 a month, so I wear the contacts whilst riding and wear my normal M frame or half jacket Oakleys.

I looked into this last year and it was getting so expensive as soon as you wanted wrap around prescription lenses I gave up.

I then discovered (as above) how ridiculously cheap contact lenses have become. Tesco optician charged me £30 for 3 month supply of lenses including eye test and checks AND I used some Clubcard vouchers so it actually cost me practically nothing.

I then got some Bolle Tracker safety glasses from local Screwfix for A TENNER ! They are really comfy, look great and come in clear/yellow/tint. They also have a removablle strap so can be used like goggles.
