The cycling eyewear thread is way too easy. Let's up the ante and talk about PRESCRIPTION riding glasses. (Yes, I've tried contacts, and no, I haven't been able to make them work for me.) I have a moderately complex prescription with astigmatism correction. My everyday glasses are progressives. My current cycling lens is distance-only, but I would consider a progressive if people think that would work, since trying to do fine tasks like reading a phone or fixing mechanicals is difficult with the distance-only lens. Prefer photochromic for evening rides and mixed deep woods / fields. Must have some wraparound / shielding effect to prevent eye-watering from wind.

Thanks, folks. Looking for first-hand experience, not speculation, although the shield idea is kind of interesting.
