I thought about this option too.

Anyone have the pros and cons of this sort of arrangement?

And Thank you to everyone who has gotten back to me.  This has been very helpful.

Cheap, no need to worry if anything happens to them, etc. Gave better coverage than most of the frames available at the typical opticians. I had prescription sunglasses, but kicked myself for not going this route sooner. Can replace at most CVSs/Kinneys.

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
