Hi Bunita.
 As to lense color, I prefer olive instead of grey. They make everthing brighter even on an overcast day.
Also, make sure the lenses are polarized which reduce glare and enable better underwater viewing.

>My car was broken into an  d I lost my RayBan prescription sunglasses.  I need to purchase new sunglasses and want something that is protective for the water--since that's where I use them.  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
