    I finally got fed up with not being able to see clearly with the cheapos, they never last and are usually very poor quality lenses. Bought a pair of Smith Optics sunglasses, lifetime warranty and have replaceable lenses. They fit perfectly and are exceptionally clear. I can put clear lenses in for night riding on the motorcycle.
    My eyes don't process what I'm looking at in low light situations so if the lenses are too dark I have to take them off to see certain things.
    We will see how it goes

    When I was driving a trash truck in the 70s I wore Sarengetti Drivers, not sure if they still make um or not but they were over 150. Good pair of RayBans are that or more.

    It's your eyes, once they get bad it's a real problem

    There are some shooting glasses that cost about $900+

    But the people who wear them shoot $40,000 K guns:bowdown:

    Then bitch about the price of shotgun shells

    maui jim are good but expensive raybans are popular I have serengettis with a prescription no one can borrow them lol
    currently I have some polarised sunglasses I wear for driving - they have a bifocal in them you cant see from looing at them great for wiring diagrams menus etc. protect your eyes - you guys ever notice the old folks wearing tinted safety glasses - their doctor advised it - cateracts people
