Vision Quest | SportRx: Optical Glasses for an Active Lifestyle

Snowboarding and skiing just got a bit clearer for those without 20/20 sight.

SportRx is for those of us without 20/20 sight. Porting over your prescription into your favorite brand of glasses or sunglasses has been a thing for quite some time. But when we get into the wild world of sports, where frames have to stand up to much more than just casual day-to-day wear, things change.

Especially underwhelming has been the world of snowboarding goggles. Your options are to either throw in your contacts (if you have them) for a day of the slopes, ending up with incredibly dry, wind-burn eyes, or wearing your glasses, with a clunky fit, under your off-the-shelf goggles. Things are changing.

SportRx are the makers of prescription goggles for skiing and snowboarding, and much better yet, you don’t need to settle for some off-brand variation that will look like the not-so-cool kid on the block. Instead SportRx has paired with the best brands in athletics (like Anon, Oakley and Zeal), and eyewear (Ray-Ban, Von Zipper) to offer prescription goggles and glasses that are so well developed the person next to you would never know your frames are substantially different from theirs.
