Photochromatic Sunglasses with rx

Please direct me. I am looking for a pair of bicycle glasses without inserts that are not $$$. There seems to be a premium placed on rx lens. I have a pair of Rudy Horus which I like but the prescription lens cost more than the glasses. I speced out a pair of Tufoli but they came to $400. Thanks in advance.

Rx lenses are expensive because they are custom made. My Tfosis were just under $200, and they are worth it--my eyes are worth it because they are the only ones I have.

You might want to check with a regular optician to see what they have. The most important things are polycarbonate lenses, UV protection, and proper Rx, of course.
