Simply put, the best sunglasses I've ever worn.

When I realized that I could no longer keep wearing my contacts, I ordered prescription sunglasses from Action Optics. I ordered the lochsa frames with clearwater copper photochromic lenses. The entire process was accomplished by phone, was quite painless, and efficient.

They are very professional, easy to work with, and the glasses are everything they are advertised to be.

They are also tremendous driving glasses.

Nothing beats good vision, but these make poor vision less burdensome.

I had a great experience with purchasing Action Optics prescription glasses too. I can't believe the things that you can see in the water. I would recommend them to anyone!

Glad to hear such a great review. I have been considering these as of late and I'm definitely edging towards ordering some after reading this.
You can spend a fortune on premium feathers and it doesn't mean you'll tie a perfect fly. It just means you have the materials from a good looking chicken.

I used the prescription glasses & they worked really well. I had lasik surgery awhile back and bought the regular Action Optics glasses. They work just as good as the prescription ones.
I have a few pairs.

Has anyone used them in bifocals? dry.gif Iloved the ones I've had but my eyes have finally dropped enough that I can only tie 10's or larger on without glasses and even then only under the best lighting. Fitovers are 'ok' but it sure would be nice to only wear 1 pair of glasses to fish again.

mine are bifocals. I really am glad I bought them. They seem to be every thing the ads promise and more.

I've worn Vuarnet, Galibier, Costa Del Mar, Maui Jim, and Ocean Waves over the years. The AO's outclass them all.
