Can't Find Wide Lens Riding Glasses

I can't seem to find glasses wide enough. All I need is 1.5 corrections and I'm fine.

My problem is when I use my usual glasses, the top of the glasses frame impedes my vision when my head is more downward...like when I'm on the handlebar drops, and then try to glance up slightly.

Any clues where I can find glasses more suitable? Thanks!

Jackson Safety makes safety glasses called "Nemesis" that come in a plain clear lens with a 1.5 diopter across the bottom, like a bifocal. You can find them on amazon or ebay. I use them for safety glasses and I ride in them too (to avoid bug strikes at 20 mph). Sounds like they may work for your application.

Just figured out you probly need a full prescription lens. Maybe sports glasses from Zenni Optical?

I wear these all the time, their wrap around side safety glass feather reduces seeing the frame.
