    Posted: 08 Mar 17 at 9:32am
It seems my eyesight is getting worse and I'm in the market for some new glasses. While I'm at it I figured I'd get some prescription sunglasses for sailing in the summer. Some time last year there was an article in y&y about sunglasses for sailing, some of which offered prescription lenses. Problem is I can't find the magazine, can anyone remember which issue it was in so that I can try and order a back issue or alternatively does anyone have recommendations for suitable sunglasses, e.g. floating frames, different types of lens coatings and colours?

Cheers,
Kev

I bought a pair of polaroids from Specsavers for 69, not sports types just standard frames. Add a floating glasses retainer and good to go. I did fancy some proper sports wrap arounds but couldn't bring myself to pay 300+.

Prescription sunglasses can be so cheap at GlassesDirect that you almost don't mind if they get lost or scratched. 30 or less is possible, depending on any deals available.

See this great website for all your miserly needs. It's a favourite of mine:

Thanks all.  Ended up going with some Puma frames from Specsavers, they were the only sports style frames they had (really poor selection) and I just didn't trust buying glasses over the internet.  Not perfect as the wrap around on them isn't great, but hopefully better than the glasses I've been using.  Now I just need to find the time to go sailing and try them out.
