Not sure if this is the right forum :huh:


This does have to deal with safety..

I am at that age where I do need a set of glasses to read & I see driving is getting a little different now ( things close real fast)

Do Y'all know of any perscription goggles that do the job for riden?

Any suggestions greatly appreciated :D

My personal favorite ... the Aviator Goggle by Leon Jeantet Retro Special Optical ... comes with a prescritption insert.

They look cool

I just have no idea about this, are there ones like regular sunglasses also?


Maybe we should try to list all the sources here, I never seen this come up before in the forums :D

I don't know for sure if the Aviator Goggle lenses are available in the light changing style for the optical models. However, I use clear lenses on the goggles, and have the light changing lens for the prescription insert.

These are only sold at select dealers, and there is one located in Hollyweed ... near your neck of the woods.

I seem to recall a Motorcycle Consumer News article that just covered that. Will see if I can find it. DREBBIN

Hey Wide, check out http://www.safevision.net/ as well. You can get Wiley X and Panoptx in you prescription. Maybe a little expensive, but since they ar prescription, I figure they would be ones you would want instead of cheapies.

The aviators aren't cheap either. The frames with the insert and a template so your eye doctor can make the lenses will run you $195.00. I paid another $108.00 for the lenses and that was through the company vision program.

You’ve gotten a lot of good info already but I wanted to throw another one your way. I use a pair of these every time I ride. They are Bobsters, “Spektrax”, SKU # BSTT0C1AC. They are interchangeable Sunglasses/Goggles. They have three interchangeable lenses for day, night and dusk/dawn riding. They also come with a “prescription lens insert”. The Bobsters cost about $45.00 and it cost me $30.00 to have lenses put in the insert.
