    My 11 year old needs to wear prescription sunglasses for tennis. Any parents whose kids wear prescription sunglasses for tennis I need some suggestions for lens color and brands. Under $200 preferably

    I'm no parent and I think these would be more than $200 after prescription, but I like the Oakley Half Jacket that Janko Tipsarevic wears. He has dark lenses.

    I think they only support prescriptions less than -4.

    Just buy eyeglasses with 10%-20% grey tint. Anything darker will be too dark for tennis. You get them for under $30 at Zenni Opitcals and Goggle4U.com

    I used to use transition lenses, then prescription oakleys and now I've switched to contacts and don't use sunglasses at all. I feel like sunglasses throw off my depth perception but thats just me.
