Anybody have any experience with using these glasses.
Especially the "innovation plus prescription".

Re: Sun glasses

They seem to have all the same lens design features as Oakley's, at a fraction of the cost.
If I did not have a pair of Oakley's with all the different types of lens, left over from my Cycling days. I would try a set. Especially at that price.
Maybe I will order a set for my son for Christmas. Everytime he flies, he asks to borrow my Oakley's

Re: Sun glasses

Hi Brian,

If you have a vision clinic locally, they carry the same glasses. They're called fly frames. A lot of people use them for fishing as well. The look exactly the same. They come with three different coloured lenses and more are available which you can order. I've had mine for about a year now and love them. It's nice to deal with someone local, if you ever have a problem. I deal with the vision clinic for my regular prescription glasses, so they already had my prescription on file

Re: Sun glasses

I bought a pair in July and the frames have cracked where they hold the lenses in they were not abused at all and I'm thinking about giving them a call.

Re: Sun glasses

I too am very interested in purchasing a quality pair of sunglasses for flying.

I also wear prescription eye glasses and too am wondering about the "Innovation Plus Prescription" glasses sold by this company.

If I read the description right, these are clip-on type glasses and snap onto a regular set of eyeglasses. I have gone that route in the past and have found them not the best fitting, most comfortable things. Is this design better than regular type clip-ons, if anyone knows?

The price seems reasonable if they work the way they claim. Hoping someone else who knows this brand will chime in here.

Great thread and great idea Bryan. Please let me know what you decide and if so how they work out for you!
