LensesRX.com Liberty sport (rec specs) I've had them for 7-8 years now and they are great, fit well without the strap. Contacts aren't ideal if you are in dusty conditions (especially leaf season)

I just looked up the liberty sport rec specs and unfortunately they can't handle my prescription. It looks like they wraparound to much for how strong my prescription is. Anyway, I think I'm going to go with what I picked before (listed a few posts back). Thanks for the recommendation though.

As a side note when I was at my glasses place I asked about rec specs and was told I can't use them as safety glasses. He said they were just for sports and not approved for mowing and trimming. I guess maybe the lenses aren't as impact resistant as they need to be for safety glasses or maybe the side shields aren't tall enough?

You can try clip-on safety glasses as well as switching to contacts.

Hey bare spot,
Just wanted to update you on the glasses. The tinted frame came in today for me to look at. They look really nice and are comfortable so I ordered mine with grey transition lenses. They should be in by the end of next week. I can't wait.
