Do you wear prescription glasses normally?

oakleys are tested for exactly that. dont see how prescriptions would fix it unless you happen to need prescription glasses in general.

Yes, this definitely helps, Oakley made an innovation to work like a prescription one.

Oakleys are probably your best bet, cant comment on this innovation that they work like prescription but the ones i've had in the past are better than most at getting around this problem... but... if like me you are prone to loosing/breaking glasses with alarming regularity Oakleys become expensive!

Before you spend a whole lot of money on Oakleys, and unless you have already tried them, give the "XLC Maldives" a go... I bought a pair out of pure desperation on a ride and was quite surprised... there is depth perception change but in my opinion, and for my eyes, its minimal, better than glasses for the same money and more, nearly as good as Oakleys.... they dont cost a lot of money and you get 3x changeable lenses for different light conditions.
