The bennefits are... Your eyes are protected and you see more fish.
I love Maui Jim ($400 for the prescription kind with Bifocals)
Smith was my favorite ($170)
Sorry... WalleyWorld glasses don't work for me.
Sorry, Crittergetter, while I agree with most of your recommendations, I don't think you have to spend $300 for quality sunglasses for fly-fishing. Not to say that they wouldn't do the job pretty well, but really . . . $300?
Never tried Maui Jim's, but have heard nothing but good things about them.
I prefer Smith's also, but buy them on sale for way less than $100. They're the best sunglasses I've used (of the many I have). I did buy some Bolles for $200 once, but still prefer the Smiths.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .
