I am trying to find a good option for some sunglasses to go over my prescription glasses for when me and my wife go on our honeymoon next month (we eloped cause the wedding planning was WAY too much stress)

We are have a lodge booked and are going to do some fishing and hiking in Arkansas so I'm trying to find something with good sun coverage. Right now I just use some clip on sunglasses but they don't do great if I'm in the direct sun long.

I've thought about Rx sunglasses but they are so expensive.
Thanks for any help.

Have you looked at Warby Parker for inexpensive glasses? They've gone up a bit since I last looked at them, and they now do progressives- https://www.warbyparker.com/ The price for frames and lenses start around $150, including shades.  Also, do you have Costco near you? Bring in your Rx and they have some durable frames they can fill for not too much. And, if you do outdoor work, you can write them off as a work expense. Good luck. Congratulations on your marriage (I understand about eloping. Fortunately, the M.I.L. only came into town a couple days before the wedding.). Have a great honeymoon.

I ended up getting a pair of Rx polarized sport sunglasses from ZenniOptical.com for $30 and change. I could have paid $50+ to get aviators (my preference) but money is tight so sport sunglasses it is.

It would be good if some one post some pictures of these glasses,  But i think polarized sunglasses are trending now days.
