What type of sunglasses does everyone use?

I've seen some references to different types of numbered lenses. Is there a specific recommendation? Has anyone tried glacier glasses? These are designed for snow travel. They have leather eye cups that cut out all light leakage and have the strongest uv protection.

I use the FL-41 tinted glasses. For indoors I use the lightest tint of 35% and in stores with bright lights, I use the darkest tint-85%. When outside or in the car, I put Solar Shield wrap around sunglasses on over these glasses.
The glacier glasses sound like they would work nicely but I have never tried them.

yes, the FL41's are great because they shut out out a certain ultraviolet wave length that affects those with BEB. again different strengths for different types of light seem to help.

I've just have prescription sunglasses. It's just been recently that I hear/read about the FL41. Will hear more at the conference I'm sure.

Checking out the glacier glasses is on my list of things to do before the winter. I'm hoping they will cut out more of the cold wind than the wrap-around sunglasses I now wear.

I have glacier glasses. There are several brands. The ones that work best for me are CEBE brand, made in France, carried in sporting goods stores. I had Rx made to order from their US rep, Opticus, in Boulder, CO. They sent me several to try until I found the best fit. Mine have leather side shields and a solid nose bridge to cut down on air. I have them tinted 95% gray. Their phone number is 800-870-5557.
