I've got a pair of Half Jacket XLJs in very good shape & I'm thinking about having prescription single vision lenses put in them. A google search turned up a number of places to get this done. Has anybody else tried this? How did it turn out? Would you recommend your provider? What color lens did you get? Thanks!...

You can just goto Sport RX.  Order the lenses in your prescription and put them on yourself.  You can get actually Oakley lenses or a Sport RX brand which is cheaper.

Thanks! Have you had this done yourself? If so, what tint did you get for the lenses? Looks like around $150 is the price point.

I have my Maui Jim's in prescription but I got it from my optometrist.  I paid $220 for the sunglasses and with prescription lenses, the bill was around $500. Luckily, my insurance covered most of it.  A few of my buddies got lenses from Sport RX for fishing and they said they work perfect with their Oakleys.   For golfing, a nice bronze or brown.   Even rose or amber works well.

Yikes! Were the lenses you put in the Maui Jim's single vision or progressive? If they were single vision, that $150 at SportRX is looking really good.

They were single vision.  I didn't think it was that bad considering my normal prescription glasses cost about the same.  But, if you considered what you paid for your sunglasses, which I'm guessing was around $200, then tack on another $150 or so, $500 isn't really that bad and it took a week.

I already have a pair of Maui frames, and to get Maui prescription lenses put in them was going to cost me over $400.

You can get knock-off lenses that will fit the frames, for Oakley or Maui, but I would bet a lot of money the quality isnít nearly as good. If you already need prescriptions, and can afford it, get the proper lenses.

If you have access to OakleySI.com you can order RX lenses directly from them. I checked a few prices. For example frames with single vision Rx Prizm Golf lense were between $300-$350. The Flak 2.0 Prizm Golf Rx is $325
