    Polarized for sure to cut glare.

    Although I haven't tried them personally, prizm deep water or shallow water polarized would probably do well.

    Also can't go wrong with a good polarized contrast lens such as titanium, tungsten, or my personal favorite VR28 black iridium polarized.

    There's plenty of info on these lenses here on the forum and you can probably get them if you go with oakley authentic Rx lenses, which I highly recommend!

    No problem. I would check with an optical shop that carries oakley to see which prescription lens tints are available for the frames you want to use.

    I was able to get the VR28 BIP in my Rx valves, which is not a standard lens tint for those frames. I had a whole list of lens tints to choose from too. I love them and they are awesome out on the water.

    Are you able to wear contacts? if so, then you have just expanded your options.

    I use my Radar Path polarized extensively for boating and it works really well
