Your prescription should work for Wiley X prescription Blink sunglasses. Both clear and brown transition lenses are clear in the "inactive" form. I will need to call Transitions to find out the exact numbers for light transmission. I will post here as soon as I hear back from them. But, please keep in mind that these transition lenses do not darken behind the wind shield or a helmet shield, they darken only under direct sun light.


The Grey Transitions lenses that we use for Wiley X prescription glasses have a light transmittance of 89% when clear and 12% at its darkest. The Brown Transitions have a light transmittance of 89% when clear and 15% at its darkest. So as you can see, they are about the same transparency in the clear form. At the same time, transitions gray get darker than brown. I hope this information helps!

I would like to ask if these sunglasses will fit my RX OD -3.25 -0.50 x 175 OS -2.50 -0.50 x 165 DPD 64 and what is the light transmission of gray tinted transition lenses? Which transitions are more clear in the dark gray or brown ones?

Thanks,

Stepan

Hi campbelltf,

The right eye astigmatism is little bit high, but it should work for these Wiley X prescription sun glasses model. I even double checked with the lab just to make sure it would work. There will no extra charge for the high cylinder. The price will be the one that is stated on the web site. If you are ready to place an order, please follow the link below:

Wiley X Blink out of range fee

Post by campbelltf on Fri Feb 19, 2010 9:21 am

I'd like to order a pair of Wiley X Blink prescription sunglasses (metallic black frame with polarized gray lense). My current prescription is:
OD +1.50 -2.50 x75
OS PL

I have seen that my CYL is outside the normal range for these sunglasses, but when I tried these frames on at a local optometrist's office there was a note on the order form they had that said for an additional small "Out of Range" fee the prescription could be accommodated. I don't see similar language on this site.

Can I order these sunglasses through OpticsPlanet with the prescription above? Thanks.
