I tried using the Rudy Project Ekynox sunglasses with RX inserts. The problem was obvious as soon as I tried them on. The vision was totally distorted because my prescription was filled assuming that the insert frames were normal, i.e. the line of sight was perpendicular to the lenses. In reality, the inserts are in the shape of a V and I was looking through the lenses at a severe angle.

I immediately returned them to Rudy Project and it took me 3 months to get my money back.

So, the Lessons Learned would be to make sure that you're looking your prescription lense at a right angle. Those wrap-around glasses make that difficult.
