Not sure if it will be appropriate here, but I always recommend Warby-Parker glasses whenever asked.  Great company - they believe glasses should cost $100, and so that's what they charge, including lenses.  Equally important, for every pair bought, they donate a pair to someone in need - a lack of glasses is the single biggest impediment to literacy in low-income families.

Sunglasses might be slightly more, and I'm still waiting for them to be able to do progressive lenses, but they're great frames and a great company.

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
