I need information on best source for riding sunglasses that can take prescription inserts. I had a pain of Bolle Vigilantes which was destroyed in a recent crash with a car. I am looking for something with interchangeable lenses

If you still have your insert, you can get a pair of Vigilantes for $48. Guy has a bunch of them.

Hey psmith

Smith optics will have what your looking for. They should have a fairly large selection that they can make interchangeable prescription lenses for.

Rudy Project also make rx inserts. Compared to Bolle's the rx lense doesn't go in as easily and the left and right lenses seem farther apart so it takes some getting used to.

Rx second lens inside a tinted lens = reflections

I had a pair of Rudy Projects, with the Rx second lens on the inside. TERRIBLE! There are reflectios everywhere between the two lens. If you need RX sunglasses, get a set with one lens.

I got the laser surgery done and now ride with those same Rudy's without the Rx lens inside and they are great. The second lens on the inside reflects light sources coming through and halos. I couldn't stand it.
