Default Rx Prescription Googles/Sunglasses: Who's work best?

I need a new sunglasses/goggles, that can eat wind with out making me teary eyed. I also need them to be available in a prescription.

I have owned numerous sets of Guard Dogs through the years with the prescription insert, and I am not impressed/pleased with their durability, POS. My father used to wear Birdz. What works for you?

I am willing to spend $$$ if they work, no teary eyes. I will be eating wind greater than 90 mph. What do you all suggest?

Smarty,
Great quesion you raised... Go to the rudyproject.com website and look at all the different options for athletes that require a script. They are the best, and since I am an eye doctor to support my boating addiction, I ought to know.

Also, check out the discount site erudy.com to get an idea of prices for frames as well as prescription lenses, inserts, etc.
I typically can get them for you for slightly less than the erudy.com prices.

I sell a couple pairs a week in my practice and they are off the charts in innovation and quality.

Solar Bat sunglasses. Polarized Mossy green lens color. Pana frames. Absolutely wonderful. Go online.

erudy.com is not working, comes up to a generic site.
