When I asked the same question here a few months ago everyone just told me to get contacts - sorry.
Through my optician's office I did find a company called Maui Jims that makes sport-oriented glasses, but I haven't been able to order any yet because they are horrendously expensive and I'm a student.

I have Bolle glasses with a prescriptiobn insert that work just fine. They can fog up when stopped in humid weather, but other than that, I have had no complaints for the 6-7 years I have had them.

Many eye doc's carry Oakely frames and will put thier perscription lenses in them. I had a friend who did this. He stated that his only issue is he wanted M-Frames and they could not do his perscription in any wrap around frames.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
I've been using Oakley perscription M-Frames for 5 years. I have 3 different lenses for them, clear, blue iridium and black iridium. They have been great glasses. I broke my clear lens and Oakley replaced it free of charge. As far as the quaility of the glasses, they're the best I've ever had (even better than my regular perscription glasses). I've used the other systems with the insert behind the sunglass lens, what a pain. They get dirty between the two lens and are a pain to clean when you're riding. Oakley is costly, but IMO are worth every penny.
I got Bolle frames from my eye glass doctor. The frames were around $30.00. They were on sale and discounted because of being a discontinued item. I actual purchase two of them. One pair I got yellow lens for and those I use for night riding, well early morning (4:00 am’ish). The others I got a dark grey lens put in and those are my day glasses. I’m very satisfied with them.
These are the one’s - http://www.sunglassesgiant.com/bosisu.html Mine are a translucent blue.
