    Ever since I had LASIK about 10 years ago, I can't go outside without any type of sunglasses on. Overcast days are even bad. So I have been wearing Oakleys. I started with the Half Jackets, moved on to the Flak Jackets, and now I'm wearing the Bottlecaps. I wear them almost everyday, and I've found the Bottlecaps don't dig in the side of my head when I wear a ball cap.

    I hear ya. I have dry eye syndrome, and when it's acting up (largely due to skipping eyedrops), I get super light sensitive. Since I actually wear eyeglasses, and the sensitivity also extends to the wind, or even the defogger setting in my car, I need something that basically encases my face.

    So I use this: http://www.amazon.com/Maxi-Aids-Solar-Shields-Smoke/dp/B003E6JN5K/ref=sr_1_2?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1303633122&sr=1-2

    It forms an eye-cup around my eye, it's protected all the way around. It helps protect me from wind and sun, all that good stuff.

    I alternate between Oakley Frogskins and Oakley Gascans. Both are polarized.

    Right now, I am wearing RayBans...I don't know which model, but they are not the Wayfarers. I also have another pair of RayBans and a few Nike sunglasses that I rotate through. My wife works at an eyecare center and I get the family discount.

    Do you know if you can sign up as a Civil Servant with the DOD? It looks like you have to be Active and/or Retired Military.

    I wear RayBan Warriors with prescription polarized lenses. I have a small head and they fit me well and give great coverage.

    I think you can. I have to fax them my fire dept ID each year. But try it. I bet they would allow it with your DOD ID. What's the worse thing they can do?

    I hate to sound like I'm echoing everyone else, but mine are also Oakleys. Not sure about the model, Whisker or something like that.

    Julbo Colorado. A friend gave them to me several years ago. At first I hated them because they had that brownish tint. I needed sunglasses at the time so I stuck with them. Now I can't wear any sunglasses unless it has that brown tint.
