Has anyone purchased sunglasses and had them fitted with prescription lenses? Just curious because I wear glasses and not contacts....

If you don't wear contacts because your eyes get dry easily, I really recommend Acuvue Oasys. My eye used to be so dry that the contact lenses popped out after an hour of wearing, and the pain, of course, was unbearable. Now I can even sleep with my contact lenses on.

You can sometimes do that, but eyeglass places can't put a prescription in all sunglasses you buy. I would but it through your eyeglass place

I've purchased sunglasses at Nordstrom Rack and Neiman Marcus Last Call and had them fitted with prescription lenses at an optometrist. Just avoid sunglasses with huge lenses and I think you should be fine.
