I just purchased my first pair of Maui Jim sunglasses Lense=HT (green). I bet it will give me 30 minutes at Dawn and Dusk of being able to wear polarized glasses without taking them off.

They are not cheep but man are they good. If your vision correction isn't above a 3.0 you can even get them to wrap your face without distortion.

I was a Smith (Amber) fan but now I will have them as a backup. MJ's price are $150 to $300 (without script) $300 to $450 with script

Good news was my company has a vision plan and I was able to get $180 paid by my company.

I always wear sunglasses. I use the brown lenses not "smoke" because they brighten up cloudy days and kill the sun on sunny days.

Maui Jim polarized lenses.

I agree about the Cacoons. To me complete eye coverage is a must, the polarization and vision qualities are excellent and they are offered in several styles and sizes for a good fit.
