I bought a cheap pair of polarized wrap-around fit-overs at CVS, just wear them over my bifocals. Work just fine

I bought some Smith's for fly fishing and I hate them. They are basically a bifocal and the magnification is always in your under vision. I basically just throw on readers over my shades now. It's much less annoying.

Berkley makes some you can get at Walmart. I bought them not knowing they had them in there and it was very disorienting. If you are used to them they might be good.

Somebody (I think Ken Smith) posted a video of some stick-on lenses. In reading this thread I went out and found some. Gonna give them a try.

That’s not a bad idea. I have very large head and have a hard time finding a pair of glasses that fit!!

I have some Costa Cmates and love them when i'm trout fishing and having to tie on 2 pound test. I only wish they came in the green lense, I have them in blue.

I have Costa C Mates. WATCH the sizes for your head. If the fit is too small they will pinch. The C Mates appear to be an afterthought as the availability of lens colors is weak. I also have some ONOS and they are not bad and about half the price of Costas.

Poly is superior for fishing. Glass is much heavier, not impact resistant, blocks 100% of UV without the need for a special coating and is generally less expensive.

Historically, glass has been clearer, but with the naked eye, you cannot tell the difference.

Go check out Sport RX.
They have a wide selection of prescription sunglasses, and can do about anything. I have 2 pair of Costa from them, and they came out awesome. I got to where my contacts would dry out way too much in a day of fishing, so had to go to presc. sunglasses. Way better choice!
