Great product, looooong processing time.

by Jack Burton, from United States, MA Written on August 29, 2014
I've had non-prescription AO sunglasses for years and recently ordered this prescription pair. The product is great. Same AO frames I've always liked and the gray polycarbonate lenses look and work great. The prescription is accurate as well, although there is a bit of distortion around the margins, but that's to be expected with polycarbonate.
My only complaint is that it took Optics Planet a month to fill the order and ship the glasses. That's roughly twice as long as even the slowest prescription services. During that month of waiting, I never once received an order status update or an estimated processing time....

I can pretend I'm an Astronaut

by Britguy68, from Canada, BC Written on August 29, 2014
Love these glasses. Read a lot reviews before getting them. Got the bayonet version as reviews mentioned they were better for keeping the glasses on your head! I fully tested this on some pretty extreme rollercoasters recently, and they stayed firmly on my head no problem.

I purchased the prescription lenses and AO still send you the original non-prescription lenses (with the AO enscribed). So standard issue for pilots and astronauts...of which I'm neither....

Good sturdy glasses.

by B Jones, from United States, IL Written on August 13, 2014
Good glasses, very sturdy and well made. The turnaround time was about 4 days -- which is great. The glasses come in a nice case with a cleaning cloth. I would buy them again when the time arrives. I will order a different pair with a different color. Good overall value....
Pros:
  • Speed of service
  • Style
Cons:
  • None
Best Used for:
  • Outdoor activities

Classic Sunglasses!

by Trevor, from Canada, ON Written on August 2, 2014
These are classic sunglasses that are much more unique than the over-sized aviators you see out there. These look great on most faces and are quite lightweight. I would not hesitate to recommend the bayonet temples which are stylish and are great while wearing a cap....

Excellent all the way... :)

by extinct, from United States, AZ Written on July 31, 2014
I needed a Genuine AO Flight Gear frame with precise custom Rx lenses at a reasonable price. I was worried about getting it online but found that OpticsPlanet did an excellent job of getting a genuine AO frame and put in accurately crafted and Rx precise lenses....

Great Pair of Sunglasses

My third pair in 50 years.

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, FL Written on November 7, 2013
I first experienced AO Bayonets in the US Air Force. That pair latest 30 years. I still have second pair, but now need bifocals, so bought third pair. There are glasses that look similar, except for the AO unique bayonets, but once you try these you will realize that the quality and comfort are levels above the competition.
Pros: Durability, off-the-charts quality, superior comfort of bayonets.
Cons: Not for fashionistas; one century, one style....

Scratched RX !!!!

by Legacy Reviewer, Verified Owner Written on October 31, 2013
Optics planet apparently, contracts the RX lenses to another company. The glasses I received had nicks on both lenses. Loren at Ops Planet informed me that they would accept a return But I counted on these when my originals broke....I cannot be without them for another three weeks. Lesson learned! For the price, $150. i could have picked up two pairs at Walmart, without scratches!!! Too bad, I am a loyal customer to Optics Planet! Don't buy no quality control
Pros: Accurate rx
Cons: Scratches on both lenses near bridge...
