Sunglass replacement lens

Does anyone know of any places (local or online is OK) that will make custom sunglasses lenses?

I have a pair of sunglasses now that I really like (and were quite pricey to begin with) but the tinting on the lens just isn't enough to cut glare while I'm driving.

I went to the local optician where I bought the sunglasses from originally and they quoted me $224 for replacement lenses. (this is with the scratch resistant coating, anti reflective and UV protection). Seems a bit steep to me as you can almost buy another pair of glasses for that price! I can't find much online and the only place I see is Eyeglass Lens Direct that offers a polarized lens with the same options for $120. It's a more reasonable price but would definitely prefer somewhere local since it's more than likely I'll have to send them in to have the lens made.

just search your brand model sunglasses in google with the term "replacement" or try ebay a lot of places that make their own lenses sell on there
