recommendation for sunglasses/readers

Would anyone be able to refer online soures for sunglasses/readers that are good for 1.5 mag. I do not need prescription...the only retail store i've found is Oakley but got sticker shock. $180-240 for the frames only...salesperson suggested lenscrafter whcih was nearby and they told me about $500 for the presription (required) glasses. So $700 total. I was hoping to keep this under $100 ...one site, readers.com has a bunch many under $20 but of dubious quality and poor reviews.

not at all...my distant glasses which i use for anything beyond 4 ft are x1.5 so that could be a reader for many people...my actual readers are 3.0 but that seriously impacts vision beyond 5 or 6 ft. I only use the term readers because that is the generic term for any non prescription glasses that range from x 1.0 to 3.5 in most drug stores....some people call them magnifiers but that complicates things further.

I have been happy with foster grant readers from drugstore chains, I have many many readers of varying power. The other big online sites are of poorer quality with what I have purchased. Maybe look into Foster Grant "outdoor readers."
