I bought some new Rayban sport sunglasses last weekend and they give me motion sickness when I wear them while walking around, although it doesn't seem to happen when driving or cycling. Anyone else have this sort of problem? The glasses are bifocals with metal frames and a fair amount of wrap. My regular bifocals don't cause motion sickness, although I was told that might happen when I first got them. The sport glasses I had been using are Bolles with optical inserts, which drove me crazy because they sweated up so quickly and were hard to clean. The salesman at the store recommended several models of frames based on my prescription, which is too strong for frames with a large amount of wrap and height. The Raybans had the most wrap my prescription could accommodate and are smaller vertically than most sport glasses for the same reason. What I'm not sure about is whether the motion sickness is being caused by the bifocals or the wrap.

I am sure it is caused by the large amount of wrap. I had similar problem with less expensive brand glasses. The problem went away when I purchased brand named glasses with less wrap. For the sweating problem, I use Pace sweat bands. It works!
