I'm posting this here rather than on the road forum 'cause I figure I'm not the only 50+ rider with imperfect vision. Here's my boring but urgent problem:
I wear bifocals. The distance correction is pretty mild, but I can't read at all w/o the reading lens. In southern California I really need sunglasses, but prescription sunglasses go for $350+, and I'd be nervous as hell about losing or breaking them at that price. I can ride with non-prescription sunglasses, but without the reading correction I couldn't read a menu, route, slip, map. . . . You get the idea. A few vendors offer cycling glasses with rx adapters, and I wonder how people have experienced these. My optician isn't sure he can fit bifocals into the adapter; I've ordered a sunglass/adapter combo from Performance so he can check them out.
Well, I told you this was boring, but if any of you have a similar problem, and have figured out a solution that works well, please let me know? I'll be seeing you!
