Even with a dew rag I still get sweat on my glasses. Anyone know of a brand which sits away from the brow and still fuctions properly?

Not sure what you mean by "sits away from brow", but I am usually a big-time forehead sweater, and lately have had really good success with a simple tie-on headband made from coolmax fabric. I also have used a full coolmax do rag with a build-in headband, but have just about decided that it doesn't work as well as the headband-only approach. A key thing for me is to make sure when I put it on that it goes down all the way to my eyebrows - not somewhere up in the middle of the forehead. Then the wind seems to do a good job of drying it as fast as I fill it.

For $20 try Boston Bill Ultra sunglasses. They are ventilated and have a sweat pad across the top. Their field of view, optics, and frame are pretty decent. I was happy to find them as I sweat a lot and the price is terrific. See their website:

For $130, you could try the Oakley Racing Jacket sunglasses which are also ventilated. See them at:
I don't know if they have a sweat pad.

My Oakley Square Wire's have a nose bridge that sits them off my nose and brow a bit. I'm only up to 30 mile rides, but so far I'm not having any sweat problems.

Rudy Kerosenes can be adjusted just about any way you want. The nose pads are adjustable to allow you to keep the front of the frame off of your brow (in just about every case). The temples are adjustable too, allowing an even more customized fit. They have a ton of great lenses for them too, I'm very partial to the new "Racing Blue." They go for about $105-$130 depending on the lens ordered. will get you a dealer near you. No financial interest.

As an Optometrist Bike Geek, what do you recommend for sweatless Rx sunglasses? Is it better to have the lenses specifically ground for you as in a Zeal Lazor or just use Rx inserts for the Rudy's? Also for the Zeal, what color lens would you choose?
