Default Prescription Fishing Glasses , Best Deal?

Hey every one. I am super good about keeping up with my Prescript Fishing glasses & case. Had them for 5 years or so. Well, They have been missplaced, Thrown away or stolen. I remember when I had them last & nothing more. So ,, I need to buy a nother pair . I had some costa Frames turned into Polarized Glasses thru Sunworks In GB the last time. Think the price was in the $260 range. They made the reading part to big for the lenses but I lived with it. I prolly wont even get the reading part in them this time unless they are lower in the lenses. Any help would be appreciated. I am lost without my Fishing Glasses. Just as Important as my phone. Maybe more.

If looking for nice bifocal polarized readers, I've gotten nice ones from LL BEAN and Sierra Trading Post.

I have these, pick your own frame. Works like Transitions lens so no need to swap em out if going indoors. Polarized, amber color and can have a progressive prescription done. Mirrored finish NOT an option because then lens won't darken.
Price em, you may be surprised especially if you have a vision plan.

Thanks. I had prescript polarized glasses w/ bifocal bottoms . Bifocal part was bigger than I wanted but the prescript part was spot on. I have never seen distance like that. I guess I will go back to the Sight & Sun place In GB to Have them do it again. I supplied My favorite frames, The fitted them with polarized prescription Amber . That was the best deal I found at the time. It just took weeks to do. When u get them, Thats what u got. I've never tried contacts . I am very sensitive in the eye area. On the bifocal part , bigger meant took up alot of space in the glasses.

My vision care provider is NVA, so prices may vary with others. Lenses w progressive prescription , went with plastic not the polycarb thin stuff I believe cause the thicker lens in my vision tends to form a wraparound effect, was $ 175.

Woops, did get the poly< it was the high index thin stuff I didn't want/get.

Here's a roughtamate, looks like their 2X the cost of Transitions. http://www.rxframesnlenses.com/lens_price-guide.htm

Finally found my plan prices. Look at lens options, polycarb, transitions multi, think they just added a bit more for the Driveware. http://www.geba.com/docs/default-sou...4.pdf?sfvrsn=4

I spent $400 on Wiley X. With progressive lens. I installed a safe in my car to keep them in.

The best deal is to remember where you left yours. I know they are on a pool table, on the beach, somewhere.

Anyone have experience with Walmart using your Costa frames to make prescription sunglasses?

Not sunglasses but Nikon high index lenses. 30 day warranty. Anti scratch coating started "crazing" after 6 months. "Sorry" says WalMart.

WalMart can bite me. Experiences may differ I guess.
