Default Re: Opinions on Sunglasses

Personally, I am very protective of my eyes, and don't mind paying a little extra for the improved optics and UV protection. There are numerous types of sunglasses but for flyfishing, I personally prefer the HVO glass lensed sunglasses. The majority of sunglasses are made with polycarbonate or CR lenses. Plastic lenses only allow about 91% filtered light to penetrate. Glass lenses on the other hand allow about 96% of light in making it easier to see through the water and around. Given the advances in lens grinding, there is not an issue with the weight difference either. Related to this topic, what color of lenses does everyone choose to wear. I have the reflective blue but also amber. Does anyone else have a color preference?
