If you have flex care at your work, you can use that to purchase sunglasses. The insert route is better than having a set of prescription sunglasses made for a number of reasons. If you need to replace the prescription, it's cheaper. The glasses provide more protection from wind and debris than regular glasses. You can get different lens colors for different applications. Etc. I use Rudy Project Kerosenes and they are super...rugged, relatively light weight, cheap outer lens replacement policy, good customer support, etc.

Look locally for the glasses, however.
