on boatertalk there is a link to Seaspecs- (http://www.seapecs.com
) which were designed to stay on while surfing, but kayakers and all kinds of others seem to be using them successfully. they offer one model w/ Rx lenses for @ $200.... i have been thinking about getting some, but i haven't cause i also am pretty much ready to go under the laser rather than spend more money on stupid Rx glasses. (except it still sounds Scary!!!)
In albuquerque, (NM) there is a doctor named Coleman (http://www.colemanvision.com
) and he is supposed to be one of the best in the country, that teaches the other surgeons how to do it and stuff.it is twice as expensive as other lasix - $2000 per eye instead of $1000- but the reason why that is good, is that he has a lifetime gurantee if your perscription changes, free adjustments...lasix doesn't (i presume)... and you probably know that when your eyes are already bad they don't get better every year, they get worse. besides if i get that surgery i wouldn't want some joe shmoe opthalmoligist pointing circa 1995 star wars era lasers at my eyes! the catch is that there is some stigmatisms that are inoperable,or unfixable, so you'd (and me too, 'cept its only 60+ miles instead of 300) have to go for an appointment just to see if he can hook it up.
and its 4 grand.
so yeah goggles, $5.00 at big five...
actually i would just get chums and rock your Rx glasses. it still works for me. (but they are flexon frames.)
good luck... SYOTR...
