Wearing prescription glasses puts me at a disadvantage when riding motorcycle during the day. It's very difficult, at times impossible, to get prescription sunglasses that work well while riding a motorcycle.
The stronger your prescription, the more difficult it is to get sunglasses. Of course you can get plain sunglasses with a prescription, but they don't work well on a bike. First of all the frame is usually too big to fit properly under your helmet, and they don't wrap around your eyes, so wind will make your cry like a newborn baby.
I've mentioned several other possibilities of getting proper sunglasses for prescription glasses in the past (see related below), and I recently received an email for the ADS Sports Eyewear site.
ADS make lenses for popular sunglasses (and normal glasses) that make it possible to wear just about any sunglass while still having prescribed glasses. So you no longer need to be jealous about your riding buddy wearing Oakley Monster Dog sunglasses, and looking cool while riding, now you too can wear them.
The ADS system uses computer technology called Digital Free Form, to ensure that every part of the lens is recalculated, giving you perfect vision even with wrap-around glasses, something not possible in the past. The more curved the glasses, the bigger the fishbowl effect.
ADS offer many brands of glasses, ranging from big names like Oakley, Nike, Adidas and Ray-Ban to smaller ones. Almost all of them can be used as prescription sunglasses, although some of them do have limits in terms of prescription strength.
They also have a nice guide on how to select sunglasses for motorcycle riding (they do offer sunglasses and normal glasses for many other sports). Click here to read the ADS motorcycle riding sunglasses guide .

While old age creeps up on us, many still have a great long distance vision, but require reading glasses to see what's on the food plate (or read a book). Which means that you have problems reading the dials on your motorcycle's dashboard.
Many of us just put on sunglasses and guess what's on the dashboard or GPS.
But Dual Eyewear have got a great solution for you, that not only allows you to see close up with sunglasses, but also make you look cool.
