I just did a quick search looking to buy a pair of belay glasses and noticed that they all seem to come to around $80-100. However, a bunch of reading glasses with the prisms facing downward (whereas belay glasses face upward) came up as well for about $7. Has anyone tried flipping the prisms in cheap downward-facing reading glasses?
Or, do you feel self-conscious looking like the dude from Star Trek and want to send me your old pair of now-unused belay glasses?

Y&Y belay glasses are good and fit over normal vision correcting or sun glasses. About $60.

I second Mark's recommendation of Mike's Belay Glasses. They are well made and work great.

The prisms are fixed in the reading glass, but you can take the legs off and swap them to get the glasses to fit upside down. Then file the bridge down to comfortize it where it fits on your nose.

Yep. I used a dremel to cut them out flip and glued in with modeling glue. ~$8 and about 20 minutes. They look kinda ghetto, but are functional and cheap.
