My brother and I both wear prescription glasses, his are tinted a bit, mine are not. My brother has ptergium in both eyes, a progressive eye problem worsened by sunlight & UV (and I expect, wind and drying of the eye), which definitely seemed to justify the nice/expensive over-the-glasses shades. I am merely photophobic, particularly when short on sleep, and my eyes tend to tear up in the cold or high wind, so I recommended the Coccoons for my brother, having seen them at the eye doc's, and having noted that they provided lateral protection from light AND allow him some peripheral vision through a window on the forward temple - this is a BIG safety factor when you are going down hill 40 mph on a bike, and you don't want to turn your head to see what is passing you and how close they are. He tried them on in the shop, said he liked them, and off we rode on our bikes.
At the end of the ride I noticed that they were not square on his nose, but he still said he liked them and felt they were protecting his eyes from UV (he tends to be appreciative, good guy).
Two days later, my$8 pair arrived, and that evening I had him try them on and pointed out how much better the peripheral vision was - there is NO corner post, or little temple window to look through... These $8 polycarbonate sun glasses have ZERO visual obstruction for peripheral vision (you can see this in the photos, if you look carefully), and better/more complete coverage for wind screening as well. (He bikes in the winter with ski goggles; I don't.) (Also, since the $8 pair are NOT polarized, you will NOT think you cell phone died in a panic, when you forget that you have your sunglasses on and the cell screen APPEARS black (due to the effect of two polarizing screens out of alignment). I've done this more than once... first time I didn't realize the issue was the sun glass's polarization!)
So my brother was willing to give them a try, because the fit was good for him over his glasses (I think better than the Cocoons, but this may be entirely individual), they obviously improved peripheral visibility MUCH better, and actually gave better wind protection as it turned out, while he was riding. When he came back, he made these favorable comments, and I asked him if I should order another pair. Surprisingly, (only a bit - he is a philosopher), he had no reluctance to saying yes. - he clearly preferred the $8 pair to the $42 pair he bought a couple days before, for these reasons.
But before ordering a second pair, I decided to try them myself on a bike ride, since I thought it might be possible they would not work as well on my head, or with my helmet, or with my glasses (and perhaps I might even want to arrange a swap for his expensive shades!). So today we took a quick ride down back roads from Verona, WI to Mt Horeb, WI and back (26 miles), and I wore my $8 wrap-arounds and he used his new $42. I was sure there would be a comfort penalty in putting a second pair of glasses on (3-D movies sometimes are intolerable, since I don't like glasses to sit down toward the end of my nose. The $8 pair fit perfectly with my helmet, and with the helmet it eliminated 100% of peripheral views of direct light. I was truly in the shade, the lenses were very sharp and clear (scratches are sure to happen over time, but polycarbonate IS tough as you will hear in a moment and there was no optical distortion - and I can tell, I'm a pilot who likes his corrections to be 20-15).
The route we took had some very nice smooth roads, and a bit of bad washboard. By the time we hit the bad roads, I was already confident the sunglasses were quite secure, and indeed I did not have to adjust their positioning the entire ride... they did NOT shake or blow loose when I was in a tuck at high speed (38pmh) or looking down while riding over washboard surfaces. (I actually put them outside my helmet strap, and over the large handkerchief I used under the helmet to keep sweat out of my eyes, and bugs out of my ears... and they stayed put!)
About 10 miles in we were riding the shoulder of a highway, I was drafting, about 1 foot off my brother's wheel, and we were cruising a pretty good clip, perhaps 20-22 mph, when he hit some stones with enough tar on them to throw a couple in my face, and one with a very sharp 'crack' on my new polycarbonate sunglasses. I'd not had a rock of this size ever get tossed that high, may not happen again, but today it saved my $540 prescription glasses (I have bilat. astigmatism, prism base-up on one lens, and 20-800 vision - fully corrected - expensive glasses). I can't find a mark on the polycarbonate - that's why they make bullet proof glass out of it.
Anyway, really lucked out with my purchase - hard to say if this product fits everyone the way it fit us, but it sits very close to the lens of your existing glasses, and I think that helps with the comfort and fit, and the temple pieces are flexible enough for many sized/shaped heads, but do have a good grip around the back of the head- they leave the tops of the ears for your regular glasses, so that one doesn't ride up on the other.
Again, I was expecting to pay a comfort penalty to wear sunglasses over my prescription glasses, but instead, I was unaware of them until the rock hit my lens, and when we took a water and stretch stop halfway, I realized my eyes were entirely relaxed, even though we were riding mostly west at 5pm. Years ago I used clip-ons (to avoid the feeling of a second pair), but they did nothing for peripheral light protection, and it is my understanding that it is peripheral light hitting the cornea and lens of the eye that often causes the eye damage we experience as we age.
Mark, MD MPH MS FACPM (PS I have NO idea who makes these, seems to be a no-name, no-brand. I am getting no incentives to write this. But in my case, and in my brother's, this product was a really good buy! It is NOT the case that spending assures anyone of getting a better product. Shop smart: study the products, read the reviews critically. Send back what is substandard and write reviews.)
You may want to look out for what another reviewer said about wider frames, but I, personally, have liked these so far.
