    I have a pair of ray ban clubmasters and i am not entirely familar with the whole world of glasses but was wondering if anyone would know if it would be possible to get my regular clear eyeglass prescriptions put into these frames. On the page below i linked too it says prescription friendly but i do not know if that means just sunglasses prescription and what not.

    Don't really know. As long as they say prescription friendly they should work fine.

    Possible? Yes.
    Advisable? No.

    It's curious how some of the best looking sunglasses don't convert to the best looking glasses:

    Clubmasters = early Buddy Holly/ nerd
    Wayfarers = later Buddy Holly/ nerd
    Aviators = David Koresh

    Well my everyday glasses are a pair of wayfarer perscriptions, and i rock them quite well, a lot of complements and such. I always have been told i look better with a bold look.
