I only ride when in daylight. With that said, I wear prescription progressives Ray Ban sunglasses that have a very wide lens and are curved back. Keeps the wind and bugs out of eye area. Not sure if they come in clear or photo-grey lens, but worth the time to ask.
Good luck!

Ok ... another question.

Can anyone give me advice on how to figure out how to go about getting prescription glasses?

I currently wear progressive prescription glasses ... and while good for general wear...for cycling it ...SUCKS! Wind, dirt, bugs...they all get in my eyes.

I was debating getting contacts....but am really wanting prescription glasses. But after visiting my local bike shop I am still confused. What do I look for? How do I know if a fit is good????

And ... I ride a lot in the early morning when it is dark...does lens color matter a lot? When I go to websites ... even when I type in "cycling" ... it shows me glasses that look like...well, not road bike glasses....I am soooooo confused!

Any advice appreciated.

(sheesh, I can fix things on my bike....but as to cycle gear I am totally clueless....ack!)
