Uvex Genesis Prescription Lens InsertGary SchnickJanuary 9, 2013Inserts work great. Make sure you take them with you when you go to the eye doctor. As noted in a previous review if you have any kind of a astigmatism they will have to alter the orientation slightly - about 6-8 degrees because the inserts bend slightly once they are inserted into the Frames. Finally some cool looking wrap around shades. You might want to have your bi-focal added to the lenses so that you see stuff up close. Bought mine for Driving, Boating & Fishing - and I have to put them on top of my head to do the up close stuff. Should of added the Bi-focals.
Uvex Genesis Prescription Lens InsertDixie Miller aka Dixie BellOctober 16, 2011I love these safety glasses. Having been a SASS shooters for 17 years I've had to wear ugly glasses with no protection over the perscription lens. I have been wearing my Uvex now for 6 months and love that I can change the len color for the type of weather I am shooting in.
Uvex Genesis Prescription Lens InsertBAALMay 22, 2011I had been looking for long for a solution like that. Perfect for prescription lenses wearer. They could improve the system with a nicer and more practical clip-on system, but in the end that is not so important, and the item is cost effective
Uvex Genesis Prescription Lens InsertDave LomaxJanuary 12, 2010As the insert is spring loaded, the orientation of the lens changes when the insert is clipped into the safety glasses. If you have an astigmatism (cylinder) correction, the lab needs to know to set the vertical & horizontal marks with the insert in the final position on the glasses, as there is about a 10 degree rotation of the lens.when installed! Otherwise, great!

Uvex Genesis Prescription Lens InsertBill DochertaighApril 7, 2008Excellent answer to prescription needs, have had mine for a week and work nicely, scrip lenses held in place securely, no distortion, no bouncing but if you want clear and shade - may want to consider two - not an easy switch for indoor outdoor change as you go.
Uvex Genesis Prescription Lens InsertSebastian HermesAugust 3, 2007You're never going to look cool in safety glasses w/ Rx inserts, but they look better & offer better protection than RX eyeglasses w/ side shields. The insert secures very well to the XC safety glasses; they're not going to slip or fall out. I've got no complaints.
