Sports sunglasses w/RX inserts?

Hullo....going nuts looking for a pair of sports glasses for the upcoming MTB season.
What is affecting my search is that I need RX inserts (I am missing about 8.5 diopters in each eye), and the glasses should be, if possible, of the "wraparound" type. Like those Oakleys, if you know what I mean.

Last year I had a pair of Adidas sunglasses - BUT
the front lens curvature was such, that the RX glasses didn't function correctly as the lenses were too angled back... I was seeing in "monoscopy" resulting in a reduced depth of field and other problems.

Contact lenses? Been there, tried that. My eyes water too much, and just a little bit of dust will have me clawing at my eyebulbs A bloody nuisance (or PITA, if you prefer).

Does anyone know of a brand / model that could possibly work with all these constraints?

Thank you!!

Ciao

Paul

My wife wears oakley prescription sunglasses- q expensive, but worth it and she wears them a lot.

Most oakleys are available with RX lenses (+2 to -4 combined power, whatever that means) e.g. http://en-ch.oakley.com/products/6214/22486

I don't think that will help the OP since he is -8.5 in both eyes.

@ Paul, if you can find a good one, I would be very interested. My eyesight is as poor as yours (actually, slightly worse )

A US website. They say this model is good for +/- 10.

Wraparound with an elastic to keep the glasses on your head.

Thank you anyway,

Hope you take some spares, 'cos I'm guessing that if you break them out and about, you could end up walking off a cliff without realising it until it is too late...

Let me tell you something - I'm so myopic (spl?) that I never go *anywhere* without 2 pairs of glasses. Me and them, we're like sides of the same medal
When I tumbled last year and lost my Adidas sunglasses I reached for my spares, rode myself down the mountain, found a ride back home and checked myself in at the local hospital.
