You can always go to the web site, check which Serengeti sunglasses with prescription lenses you like and than order the plano model first. You can return regular Serengeti sunglasses within 30 days after receipt for full refund or you can ship it back to have Rx lenses installed.

Just to give you an idea about their sunglass collection, here are a few my favourite styles:

Serenegti Velocity

Serengeti Trento

Serengeti Carini

Unfortunately, you've been the only one who has really corresponded with me so far. Surprised more people aren't posting.

As for Serengeti, I'm not sure it is an option now that I think about it. The reason is there are no stores in my area, as far as I know, that sell Serengeti, so I can't try them on. This means if I order them with a prescription and they don't fit, I'm screwed. At least with the Persol I can send them back if they don't fit. Plus... I like the way the Persol look better than the Serengeti. The appeal of the Serengeti glasses is the lens quality... but the lenses aren't too useful if the frames don't fit (which I have no way of knowing).

I'm a big Serengeti fan :D But that's a personal preference and the decision is yours :wink: I hope our guests will share their experience and will give you some more suggestions.

Hmm... Serengeti looks intriguing, but I had my heart set on one of the Persol glasses. Decisions...

Which would you pick?

I like Persol 2244 better. It looks more sophisticated in my opinion.

I wear contacts myself. It took me some time to adjust and find the brand that works for me. But I find it convenient now. So, I would say give it a try.

This is just an idea of something else you could try. There are some sunglasses with interchangeable lenses. A good example is ESS CDI sunglasses. You can get regular sunglasses with plano lenses and a set of CDI prescription lenses and interchange them when needed.

As far as the price for Serengeti prescription sunglasses with authentic lenses it is not that much higher. It starts from $248.95 for single vision lenses. And for that price you get the frames, photochromic Rx lenses with blue blocker, UV and AR coatings. Polarized and progressive cost more.

Hmm... I was having a lot of trouble deciding between the two. At first I really liked the 2244, but then I tried on a similar pair as the 2720 and they seemed to look good on me. But I wonder if the fact that the 2244s are discontinued makes them more unique. What would you do? Do you think one pair would look better on my face shape than the other, or have any other advantage you can think of? Also, what color what you recommend for either pair for me?

Persol stands for their lens quality and offers outstanding optical technology. But as far as I know Persol does not have an authentic Rx program. So, the lenses you receive will be generic prescription lenses you could get in any other frames.


One thing I was considering is to get the Persol sunglasses, buy contacts, and wear them over the contacts. This would be more efficient as when I take the sunglasses off (e.g. inside) I'll still be able to see. However, I've never tried contacts before and I'm not sure if I'll be able to stand them.

If you are looking for high quality Rx lenses, take a look at Serengeti prescription sunglasses collection. Serengeti runs their own prescription lens program and you will get Rx lenses of the same quality as Serengeti plano sunglasses lenses. Their lens technology combines a lot of features: photochromic, sharp contrast, blue light blocking, glare reduction and UV protection.


Are these much more expensive than typical lenses? Sounds it.

Question about Persol 2244 and 2720 sunglasses

Can the Persol 2244 and 2720 sunglasses be fitted with prescription lenses? I'm interested in both of these sunglasses, but I might want to have prescription lenses put in later but I'm not sure if they would fit. My prescription is -2.25.

Also, would it be a shame to replace the lenses that come with the Persol sunglasses? It sounds like they're really high quality, and I'm not sure how polycarbonate polarized lenses from Walmart or Pearle Vision compare.
