I just use cheap polarized sunglasses, you can see under water alot better. I see these sunglasses in catalogs for over $100 and I cant believe it.

Don't waste your money on an expensive pair the cheap ones work just as well if not better and you won't get mad if you lose them in the water.

You can spend as much as you want on a good pair of polarized sun glasses. Sure the less expensive ones work pretty well, but to me, the bottom line is:...You get what you pay for!!

As a fishing guide I can tell you without a doubt that the Optically correct glasses are much better on your eyes......the quality isn't so much in the ability to see into the water.
The quality is in the comfort on your eyes,and brain, and their ability to stay that way(scratch resistant).......some of those cheap ones will have you cross eyed in no time flat.....I'm not going to trust my vision to a $8.00 pair of glasses anytime soon.
I took a cheap pair to my eye doctor once to see what he thought......he said "Yeah they're great!.....do they come with Excedrin?"
For the casual angler you might not notice a difference, but for the person on the water 10-12 hours a day in all lighting conditions....you'd BETTER have a good pair.

And make sure you are using the right tint for the type of fishing you are doing, or you aren't getting the full advantage.

I use "Action Optics" glass lenses in a Brown tint for river/stream trout fishing.
They're expensive but worth it to me.

I HAVE A COUPLE FEW DIFFERENT PAIRS OF DIFFERENT SHADES THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE WHEN YOU SWITCH FOR CHANGING LIGHT CONDITION. THEY ARE FAIRLY CHEAP ONES
(< $20 ) BUT I CAN SEE THAT GOOD QUALITY LENSES WOULD BE BETTER OVER A FULL DAY OF USE. JUST LIKE USING GOOD QUALITY BINOCS CAUSE LESS EYE FATIGUE.
