Prescription biking glasses, Oakley Jawbone?

Hi guys, I use the Oakley Jawbone glasses for biking. They have interchangable lenses.



Does anyone own a pair of these with prescription lenses? I really want to get some RX lenses to use with them as I love the glasses, I just hope they can actually make the darn things.

It depends on your prescription. Some Oakley's come in bigger ranges than others, due primarily to the shape.

Already have the glasses, just want the lenses. At $275+ its a yikes. But, I value vision more than a few grams of weight shed off the bike : )!

Have you checked to make sure the glasses are compatible with your RX? Any Oakley dealer or Optician that carries them should be able to order the lenses.
