That's a nice pair of glasses. I wear Oakley M frames.

After trying Oakley, Ray-ban. BluBlockers and Bolle, I came to the conclusion Blublockers works best for me. Its the blue light that causes the most glare and blublockers totally eliminates blue light.

Oakley Flak Jackets (polarized) get my vote. As a cyclist who's worn a lot of sunglasses, Oakley has the best optics, IMO. Oakley is pricey, but is one company that actually makes products that exceed its marketing/advertising expectations, IMO.

All Oakley's are impact resistant: http://www.oakley.com/innovation/optical_superiority/impact_protection
And they do make a great product.
They are definitely worth it for those that seem to not scratch their lenses or lose them. (Regrettably I am not one of those people, and have been wearing Bolle for the last couple of years. I like being able to replace the polarized sandstone lenses after I've scratched them, and that they have a component system for prescription wearers).

Tifosi is excellent quality for a fraction of the cost. The pair mentioned in the 1st post costs $60 and comes with 3 Interchangeable Lens' and a hard case.
By far, the best value for performance eyewear.

I don't get it...

Anyway, I don't think I can play tennis with sunglasses. Won't be comfortable at all, my peripheral vision would suffer. I think caps are better.
