Im climbing Kili in November, and being shortsighted (and unable to use contacts) I have got some perscription sunglassess. Trouble is that they are not wraparound. Ive heard everywhere that wraparound sunglassess are best, but will normal suffice? as i dont want to fork out another £300 when everything else is so expensive as well?
Any experiences on this anyone?

Here are the sunglasses (prescription) I used in mid-September sun:

I did bring ski goggles that fit over them in case it got really bright but I never used them.

The biggest issue with regular glasses is that if you are doing snow travel the sun can potentially reflect off the snow and around your glasses and into your eyes. Not a big issue on Kili. You'll be fine without.

Hello dear I was really excited to know that what kind of Sun Glasses are good to climb Kili or any other Mt in Africa. But I was pretty disappointing when I clicked your link. This Isn't working any more!
