I'm thinking of going the prescription sunglass route myself, but worry about having to carry a case in my jersey pocket meaning one more expensive thing to lose.
If you look at the Rudy Exceptions here (a better pic than I linked before), you will see the Rx 'insert'.

A big difference between these glasses and some others is that the 'insert' is actually more the base product, with a clip on sunglasses. Also, the sunglasses lens flips up, or easily snaps off. If I am doing something simple like going into a store to use the restroom or get a banana, I just flip the lens up. If I am riding in the dark, I just snap the lens off.

It's hard to describe, so go here and scroll down a bit to see what I mean.
