Eye sun protection options for short sighted person?

I'm short sighted and trying to choose between options for protecting my eyes in the sun. Here's what I've come up with:

1. Transition lens--ease of one pair, but take a while to transition, don't transition in cars, and can transition on cloudy days
2. Clip ons--instant protection, but will still let UV in from the sides because any glasses that are good for my face shape will have narrow temple arms, and also it's like carrying around a second pair
3. Fit-overs--instant protection, won't let UV in from sides, but worried they will add extra weight to my face, and of course the hassle of carrying around a second pair of glasses. I also have a really flat nose and was wondering--do fitovers sit on top of your normal ones (i.e. away from the nose) or in front of?
4. Prescription sunglasses--instant protection, won't let UV in from sides, second pair and will actually have to take on and off the wearing pair instead of just sliding it on and off like fit-overs.
5. (current option) Contacts with non prescription sunglasses--sick of wrestling with contacts all the time, eyes get dry and tired. Will still continue until I can work out a more viable option.
It's boiled down to fit overs vs prescription sunglasses. Pretty much the only sticking point is whether fit-overs do add a lot of weight, and whether they will actually fit to my nose. But if anyone one else has any pros and cons to add to any of the options, would like to hear them. Thanks.
