Where to buy prescription cycling glasses?

Can I just buy any cycling glasses online and take them to the opticians to change the lenses or do I need special glasses for cycling? Does anyone have any recommendations for cycling glasses?

if you want direct glazed, you need to find specific glasses . Not inexpensive though, direct glazed transition Oakley or similar are £300
I used this company in the past

I personally didn’t like the aesthetic of the Optilabs frames and they weren’t actually much cheaper for the same type of lens (their showroom isn’t far away so I actually tried them on)

Not used, but have slightly better prices for Oakley etc than RxSport and decent reviews

Was going to get some new Oakleys, but then had an off and no cycling for 3 months...will invest in spring (after an fresh eye test)
Thank you I really appreciate your help. :smile:

I have some Optilabs vari focal reactolite, they are OK, but I recently had a new prescription and new glasses from Specsavers with a free second pair to the same prescription, I chose some sports sunglasses as the second pair and these are now my goto cycling glasses.
