Go downtown and you will find them. First point of call - the Filipino Supermarket. ( opposite Al-Rajhi the "Saraf" or Moneychanger)

Don’t do it. It’s not 1978, even if it feels that way in Ksa.

Get some proper ones made up. They are cheap over here.

Opticians in KSA are competent - and cheaper than back on "Airstrip One". Get "Reactolite"

You can afford things in KSA that are beyond your reach back home.

And when in KSA benefit from those items and services that cost much less than back home.
Get shirts and trousers tailor made. Have your shirts cleaned in the laundry. Go to the barber for a shave.

Agreed, I was about to post something similar. My parents used to have clip-ons in the 1980's, and I used them until I got my first career job and then switched to buying a pair of prescription sunglasses even though they weren't cheap. If you need vision correction then having proper glasses is not a luxury, so it just makes sense to buy proper sunglasses.

Why not get photochromic lenses then no need for two pairs, or dated looking clip ons.
