    I could go to Lens Crafters, I'm not an idiot. Your telling me that I can find crafted glasses great for sports and cycling anywhere? I'm guessing not. Where did you get yours from?

    I got both pairs from the eye center at a Shopko, since that's what my insurance covered. Costco also has some good deals. Most places will have a large variety. Mine are geek frames with plastic lenses, but you can get titanium frames and ultralight lenses.

    I wear both as well.... I have Bucci frames, I purchased online, they don't make my model anymore, but I can find them here and there, they are polycarb, VERY light and strong. The model is great for riding with Rx in them, have gone thru 4 frames and 6 changes in rx... Got them done at LensCrafters.

    Problem is the curvature of the frames and the Rx, mine is right on the edge, but they do it. You might check it out, they can put lenses in just about any frame, as long as the curve will fit the Rx.

    Astigmatism sucks. Of course, at my last exam, I found out my vision has improved in one eye. Go figure.
