  1. Very much agree with you regarding the advantages of polarized sunglasses. Wearing prescription sunglasses may increase the cost of those glasses, but generally in my experience I find that most sunglasses are available on prescription and with the advent of the internet it has never been cheaper. I found the advice on the Vision Express website really informative when I was deciding my latest pair. You can choose lenses around your requirements for the glasses (eg skiing, water sports), secondly they have a 'try on sunglasses online' feature so you can see whether your prospective new glasses suite you. Check it out before ordering!
