Hi Bunita

I use Oakley sunglasses with tinted prescription lenses. On the inside
of one leg it says "Straight" (the name of the model, I guess). They
fit like a glove and no sunlight enters from the top and undersides. I
use them for all sun-affected activities including kayaking. I really
like them (I always joke that these glasses are my best buy ever).

Does anyone know of info or articles on this subject?  What brand prescription sunglasses have you used successfully?  What colors are best for being in a canoe with light from above and below?  Would anyone recommend a particular optometrist for this?  My old RayBans were over $400. with the lenses. (Seemed a bit expensive.)  I'm in Brooklyn, 60 years old and have the beginnings of cataracts.  Thanks, Bunita
