Yes you can....they are worth every penny. It blew me away the difference and mine you I went from HVO's to these.
Davo, that is what I am talking about. You do pay more attention to them. I did loose a great pair of Gargoyals and Mai, but that was stupidity while waterskiing and the other while swatting a bee in the middle of a lake.

The only pair I no longer have is a pair of Action Optics that the lens delamenated on. I sent them back and got a replacement pair which I'm still wearing until my new Oakleys show up. Mostly bought the Oakleys for fishing the flats down in the Keys. Got the fishing specific lens in shallow blue. Not sure if they will work as good on the Snake but we will see.

Has anyone tried those Sunglasses with the interchangable lens that you can put the RX inserts into. I was thinking about getting a pair. I wear glasses & have a pair of fitovers but the idea of being able to change lenses for different conditions is tempting

I order the new pair just to have a different style.
Well I said I'd post again after trying the Oakleys. So here I go. I've used them down in Florida for a week and up on the Green River. They are really good. The fishing specific lenses are called shallow blue but are actually a light bronze in tint. The cut the glare very well and are extremely light. They stay snug on your head with out any pinching. All in all I like them and am very satisfied with the purchase. If you like any of the Oakley styles that come in the fishing specific lense coatings I highly recommend them. By the by I made my purchase by following the link to Oakley here on the Forum.

I do not think color is as important as having high quality, distortion free, polorized lens. The Air Force issues sunglasses, prescription and non-prescription in grey. Found to give best color sight. I use grey, prescription, polorized sunglasses and can see the fish and do ot suffer any eye strain.

I've got a pair of Rudy Project Exceptions. They came with prescription fittings for my near sighted eyes. I've got the brown PolarFX for bright sun/skiing/fishing, the racing red PolarFX for overcast and not so bright fishing and the golf and reg. racing reds. I like how clear the vision is on these lenses and the degree of scratch resistance and polarization. I've used Revo, Bolle, Vuarnet, etc. and find this setup the easiest to put on and take off.
