Best sunglasses for optics?

I'm in the market for a new pair of sunglasses. My old pair of Maui Jim's are broken. It used to be that Maui Jim's were one of the best for optics but I'd like to know what is comparable. I'm don't care for fashion sunglasses.

What is superior for optics?

to be honest, i had a pair of maui, but somehow i didn't like it. it felt like it was cheap 5 dollar glasses. the opics were ok i guess.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.

Even if you win, you're still retarded.

Can't complain with my Oakley polarized. Have Black iridium and VR28 (both polarized), and they really cut the glare well. Paired with a cheaper plastic frame and it's a pretty good deal.

Better yet, make friends with an Oakley employee and enjoy a 70% discount
