I wear disposable contact lenses. I'm blind without them. Contact lenses have gotten better but when it comes to cycling, I still suffer. On fast downhill sections I get nervous about losing a contact lens. On night rides, my eyes sometimes give me grief. And when it's really windy and dusty outside, I almost always manage to get particles in my eyes.
I have a pair of really old glasses that I wear at night or on road trips. They must be 10 years old. My 2 year old daughter, Sage, loves my glasses. I hide them from her but she searches for them, finds them, and drags them around the house with her. Needless to say, they are pretty much destroyed. I decided it was time to finally get a new pair of glasses. And since I only really wear them at night or when I drive long distances, I didn't really care about style. I wanted function. Something I could wear while cycling if needed.
I found these glasses on the Smith site. They are cycling frames with prescription lenses. Check them out:
I placed my order and within a week they arrived. I have a pin head so they look like shop glasses on me but I still plan to wear them with pride. These glasses and my shaved legs and I'll get all the respect I need from the local bike shops (Especially if I refuse to smile as in this pic)
