I've got Ray-Ban New Wayfarers (901) with prescription, polarized lenses. They're spectacular. 

 

And clearly better than any aviators.... :p

I've been buying from here for 15 years. They discount all of their glasses and carry most brands besides having great customer service:

Have a pair myself...nice shades.  Can't get the nosepieces adjusted perfectly, but I am too lazy to go to an optometrist to have it done for me.

want to thank the peoples on the thread for the recommendations for maui jims, they look to be pretty sweet. Im getting my laser eye surgery on the 6th, and for a year if im outside ill have to have sunglasses on, so i wanted the best optics. now i just have to pic out a pair, i think ive got it narrowed down to the lagoon, stingray, or navigator. need to get to a sunglasses shop so i cant pick.

Best of luck with the surgery!

 

I Googled them and I'm biased against that full framed style of glasses, so I would definitely recommend swinging by a sunglass place and trying them on with a mirror and a man or woman of impeccable taste to judge.

thanks :D

 

yeah it really depends on the face i guess, cause just looking at pics they arent usually my favorites either, but once they're on my noggin, the fuller framed glasses usually look the best, so its what i go with.

I had Lazik done in '99 and never looked back (pardon the pun). Just be prepare to need reading glasses at 45, which to me was a worthwhile sacrifice, being that I use my reading glasses maybe 30 minutes out of 24 hours a day. I have 20/15 in both eyes. I'm sure technology has changed drastically in the last 12 years (mine was the first year that they transitioned form RK to Lasik).

It takes about 7 minutes for each eye, and when they "vacuum" the eye, it's extremely uncomfortable. But it's a small price to pay for long term satisfaction.

The next morning, I could see the hair on my toes. Very short recovery period. One of the best moves I've ever done. Of course I went with the doctor who invented Lasik and it costs me $4500.

Make sure to use a reputable doctor, and not one of those $700 clinics. The eye is not something to fool around with.

 

2 years ago, my wife bought me some Maui Jims, with a reading prescription in the bottom of them. Now I can read Stereophile outside on a blue sky day.

thats a pretty sweet story. Im actually getting it done for free by the air force. But the laser eye surgery center here at Wright Patt has done over 15000 eyes, seems to me like they know what they're doing  yeah i dont think ill mind much to have to wear reading glasses, glasses for a couple hours a day at the most, certainly beats the pants off of wearing them all day every day.

 

im stoked about the maui jims too, i decided to jump on the navigators in black cause i want them for the day of the surgery, and if i dont like them for some reason, they've got free shipping for exchanges smily_headphones1.gif so im golden either way.

1st step the Air Force does in it's covert "Super Soldier" program.

Immtbiker, forgive my ignorance...but explain the reading glasses at 45 comment.  My girlfriend is considering this same procedure.  Gulp.

Yes yes I realize that.I linked to an article from lifehacker above. Polarized glasses are not expensive to manufacture. All you really pay for in those expensive glasses are a better frame and the brand name. Polarized and UV protected sunglasses are available for $40 (so says the article). Thus, I was trying to find these cheaper polarized sunglasses. Thanks for the suggestion though.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Try Banana Republic(it's a clothing store that sells a few sunglasses on a glass fixture).  They have $70 sunglasses that are polarized and have really good looking design

I've got a pair of Prada aviators (SRP 59L).  This is my first pair of sunglasses in years since I don't like wearing glasses (I've always had perfect vision and never had to wear glasses).  I went to the optometrist and she said there were a few spots of sun damage so I should start protecting them.   I can't seem to link a picture right now tho.
