I Can See Clearly Now: A Rx Sunglasses Review

I was told that I would be in reading glasses before my friends a number of years ago.  And sure enough I needed reading glasses when I left the Navy.  I don’t know if staring at a computer screen or it’s just the natural part of aging, but my once pretty good distance vision is slowly going as well.  The problem is prescription glasses are quite the racket.  Pretty expensive and sunglasses even more so.  I had been looking to order some online for quite a while.  I figured I could get them a bit cheaper.  Of course, no brand names, and I just couldn’t pull the trigger from one of those discount sport glasses.  They weren’t really that cheap.

I saw the ad on Facebook, Shady Rays.  Okay, I’ll see if they have Rx glasses.  They do and reasonably priced.  So I ordered a pair of their X series.  I got photochromic lenses as well.  It took about a week and a half to get them.  They came with a decent case and a microfiber cloth sack.

These are my first pair of prescription sunglasses so I didn’t know what the situation was going to be like.  It took me about a week to get used to them.  At first I was like, wow I can see EVERYTHING REALLY clear and in focus.  I wondered if my vision used to be like that and I just got used to not seeing as much in focus.  Well, it appears my brain has acclimated.

The frames appear and feel pretty sturdy.  The lenses work as advertised with respect to adjusting to the sun.  I’ve driven with them and run in them.  So far so good.  If anything comes up I will add to this post.

It’s nice to be able to see again.  God Bless!
