I own a pair of "Costa del Mar" polarized glasses. They have a glass lens lamenated by two pieces of scratch and imapact resistant plastic. They have what's known as a 580 lens in them. it blocks out light in the 580 wavelength.(yellow light). I wear contacts and when i wear these it makes my vision super crisp like watching HD tv compared to regular cable. They are a bit pricey though around 200 bucks. One thing i can reccomend is getting yourself one of those librarian lanyards for your glasses. i got one for 2 bucks that floats at a drug store, and since i got it i havent lost a pair of glasses. They either hang around my neck when they arent on or around my rear view mirror.

I've always been able to find good polarizing sunglasses for around $15. I like the yellow, because they don't darken the scene, they brighten the scene.

Deep in the woods they help see into the water and pick out fish.

They also protect your eyes from UV rays, but did you know that by just wearing a baseball cap you reduce uv rays by 30%.

The way polarizers work is they cut the glare by reducing horizontaly polarized light reflected off road surfaces and water by using a vertical filter to block the reflection of light.

Another vote for the Action Optics. I am fortunate that my prescription has not changed much the past few years, and I have been able to get 3 yrs+ out of them. I have the amber. When I fish in the evenings, if it gets too dark to see with them on, and I do not have a flashlight, I know I still have enough light left to get back to the car. You won't regret it if you get them. They don't scratch easily, and if you keep them in the case when not in use, you will have them for years.

My warmest appreciation to whom ever started this post.

I am quite confident that you had not started this post I would probably have not put my action optics on the passenger seat of my 4 runner. And without this thread they would quite probably have not slid off the seat next to the passenger door. And I probably would have not gone out in the evening, opened the door, and closed it, smashing my action optics to smithereens.

And without this post I would have not discovered that I could get a discount on a new pair at Action Optics at Eyesave.com.

I really loved those action optics!!!!!

Looks like some pretty good deals on Action Optics here... Link to E-Bay store

I ordered a pair with photochromatic lenses that get darker when the sun is brighter. Can't beat $40 with shipping!

This will be my first pair over $20, so we'll see how it goes. Hopefully they won't get busted in the car door...

Albatross-

Thanks for the link. I will have to check it out. My first pair were originally $149-$159. I bought them on clearance for $99 in the LL Bean store in Maine. Besides the slam in the car door, they were really incredible. You will be quite happy with them.

My sunglass order-

I promised to let you know if I had any difficulties with my order. Eyesave does not keep inventory. A week after placing my order they said it would be at least another week to ten days. I cancelled my order, and if I could I would delete the above reference to them, however I am unable to do so. Oh well, so much for my good deal.

If you are looking to get a pair of nice polarized fishing glasses. I recomend you put out the extra money and get a pair of Cost Del Mar. The lenses come in 7 different colors. Each color has a different pupose. So you choose the color for what you do.
Check out this article on the Costa Del Mar Wave Killer. Costa Del Mar Wave Killer Review
I personally own 2 pair and the quality, durability, and looks are just outstanding.

Used to always wear cheapos that we bought at a store name Katches in Mt. Carmel.....we called them Carmies after one of the old guys in town....they were huge and thick with a yellow lense & they worked great......since then I have tried expensive Cabelas glasses, they were returned........bought a few at Walmart with a red mirror lense........I bought a pair of Nikon's 2 years ago and I still have them.....I usually lose them, which is why I like cheaper....bought them on ebay for like 12 bucks......Go to ebay and type in Nikon polarized sunglasses...........

I once owned a pair of Oakley polarized glasses, but broke them in 3 places while Mt. Biking riding in the coal region........I don't know what hurt more.....my body or the fact that I just ruined a 160 dollar pair of sunglasses.........also had a pair of Oakley polarized glasses stolen while I was in college......I was working in the library and put them in a drawer.....somebody snatched them....worked with a few SUSPECT type people........but nobody ever fessed to it.....they were Yellow, who the hell steals yellow sunglasses????

If your constantly losing or breaking them, then cheap is the way to go. For Me, nothing but polarized. They need to fit tight around the eyes, including the sides to keep out the glare. Its amazing how much glare can get under the bottom of loose fitting glasses

I can't ever justify a lot of money for sunglasses. I scratch them or lose them every year or two. My recent loss this spring must have been somewhere in the stream. The polarized $12 set from Wally World seems to work fine for me. I think they also sell a set in amber for darker conditions.

Last winter I got a pair of H3O Surge sunglasses at Gander Mountain ($120). I will never go fishing with out them again. They come with 3 different lenses; gray, amber, and yellow. I use the gray for normal wear, amber for fishing, and hardly ever use the yellow. Not sure what it is for. They fit well and are very light weight. Absolutely love them!

After reading this thread and thinking about my situation - I ordered a pair of Bolle Anaconda's polarized off of Amazon.com (lowest price) I could find. These got to me last week and so far I have been impressed with the glasses. This is my first pair of "more expensive" glasses in a long time - I was a Wal-mart pair every 2 years for awhile. We'll see if in the long run they are worth the extra cash...
