The summers coming and my eyesight is getting worse :roll: So I'm considering getting some prescription lenses for either my current Oakley's (Race Jackets) or buying some new ones but am unsure on whether to give Vision Express my money or if I should use an online provider or something completely different... any tips/advice?


  • I've used RX Sport and the service was excellent. I'd rate them highly.

    I have just bought a pair of prescription Oakleys from Vision Express, I managed to get a discount from them which brought the price close to RX sport.
    The problem with buying on line is that it is not just a case of giving your prescription. Measurements and pupil alignment still need to be taken to get it right.
    Vision Express were very good and the glasses came within 4 days.

    I bought a prescription lens for my M Frame a few years ago from a local optician in Richmond and it helped a lot, particularly riding offroad as I could scan the trail further ahead. Then I had laser surgery in 2010 which was even better :-)

    I recently used these people for a pair of prescription Oakley Flak Jackets and saved about £80 over the high street optician price, it took about 10 days.
