Bought myself a Polaroid sunglasses when i been to a business trip from Switz. Not much idea of what all it protects my eyes from :-) and was not very much aware of the superior brands that time.

Gifted it to my dad now :-)

Not sure whether somebody already pointed this out -
If you drive with a photochromatic sun glass in the hot sun and suddenly enter a dark tunnel, you may be temporarily blinded. This is because the lens that darkened in the bright sun would take some time to 'lighten' in the dark tunnel.

I have couple of Rayban Aviators (which continue to be my favorite) and I have one Oakley which I am scared to wear due to it's price. Dunno why I spent so much on it...I love Aviators.

which is precisely the reason that you are supposed to flick on your headlamps before entering a tunnel and/ or causeway and/ or entrance to a basement parking place and ideally, pull off your sunglasses at the same time. Safety First.

Raj,

Yes, they are available. Search for 'powered' in this thread and You should see lot of posts regarding the numbered glares.
