  • Wonder if someone can recommend a shop in HK where you can buy sport sunglasses where you also can put in prescription glasses? Know that brands like Rudy Project, Adidas, Nike, Oakley has such glasses, but where can you find them in HK? Have been asking at Lenscrafters and they do not have these type of glasses. This UK shop gives an idea of what I am meaning.

  • I have a pair of Rudy Project sunglasses with prescription lenses in them. I don't remember the model (I think it is a full-frame version of what looks like the current Kabrio Vista), but my eyesight is REALLY bad (something like -8.5, -7.5), so my choice of frames was limited. They are more for general use than sport, but in a pinch they are fine for MTBing, and definitely for driving. I think the amount of choices for lens colour and light transmission are also limited, although maybe this has changed and will be different for those of you with better eyesight.

    I got them from Ocean Optical in Central, which is in the basement of the Standard Chartered Bank building ( www.infoguidehongkong.com/central-distri...-optical-co-ltd.html ). I think you can also consider Bolles. Check them out, but be warned that (just like with all prescription lenses) you will probably need to wait some time for the lenses to arrive.

  • Similar to YW-Slayer & ah, X-men Cyclop, my cycling goggle consists of a regular goggle and a inner prescription lens as I dont wear contact lens.

    These goggles / sport glasses are available in some of the optical shop around town.

    Just make sure that you try them out coz you've to find one that fit your nose bridge, as well as checking whether the inner prescription lens is too close/far.

  • Actually I usually use contacts and sunglasses for full days out, but for casual rides I will use my prescription sunglasses.

    Have been thinking about getting a pair of goggles, and maybe also a full-face helmet for fun (no doubt this will go down well with my wife).
