has anyone used SportRx for sunglasses?

I found their website in the back of Bicycling. The van cut rx lens for cycling glasses oakley, bolle and some others would like to get some with the interchanganle lens just wondering if anyone has used them in the past and could recomend them or not.

I completely, 100% recommend going to Brett Hunter at Sports Optical:
http://www.sportsoptical.com/
My Zeal Maestro sunglasses are easily the best RX sunglasses I have ever owned, and I am pretty nearsighted (-3.25 in right eye, -2.75 in left). Brett Hunter pioneered the technique of RX'ing wrapped sunglasses and is also a former competitive cyclist.

Although I have not used them, I researched this extensively a couple of years ago and found zero negative comments about them or sportsoptical. Brett Hunter is very highly regarded. Hope this helps. I did not use either of them because my wife's company has optical discounts and I was able to find a satisfactory solution. When my current optics wear out or break I will probably order from them because my cycling activity warrants the expense. I had only started riding again and did not realize I would be riding 4,000 miles per year when I turned fifty since I rode less than 2,000 miles per year when I was previously riding and in my twenties.

I just ran across this reference on another forum where they were discussing the best type of lens coating. These comments are typical of the ones that I have read from other actual users.

Has anyone tried these for $129?
