I find it amusing how someone comes up with a new way to market and sell cheap sunglasses. Battle Vision? hahaha!

The review sums it up fairly well I suppose. "For twenty bucks..." cheap sunglasses can't be good sunglasses, but for 20 bucks these are OK. Low expectations at a low price. Makes sense to me.

If you ride enough, you will find sunglasses by the side of the road

Or in the bad parts of Port-A-Potties. I wear prescription glasses so Iíve never found the need...nor desire...to fish those out.

The folks who are content with $10 gas station sunglasses, more power to 'em. I'm either lucky or unlucky enough to have been wearing prescription lenses since the age of 15, so I've never experienced the pleasure of cheap sunglasses.

I'm up to five pairs of prescription sunnies now. Different lenses for different things. My wife wears contacts, and wears a pair of $40 Tifosis that have three sets of lenses, which is arguably a better deal than some $20 as-seen-on-TV jobbies.

Found another cheap glasses. It is tempting to buy a least 2 pairs. https://snappedbuy.net/products/phot...32507610497124

You should get glasses that have separate prescription lenses. i have Rudy Project and can change the sun lenses independent of the prescription. And change the prescription without having to replace all the lenses.

I wear progressives and they only cost $80. So once you get past the initial investment the are fairly cheap to own.

These are the clear.



And this is how dark they get. And they change back in only a few seconds.
