I don't have these, but once you go polarized, you never go back.

I came across a glasses post on kiteforum - seems these work glasses are a pretty good deal:
3M Tekk
Buy em by the bushel.

Some folks seem to hate the polarization for water (can't see the waves), but for you on sand should be good.

I don't wear glasses at all, but I should - so I bookmarked the above for future reference...

I am a huge fan of polarized glasses for bright sunny outdoors activity. Screens can be a problem such as phones or a GPS. If they too have a polarized screen then the two conflict.

I personally wear polarized Oakley Straight Jackets. All Oakley are ANSI safety rated. Granted they are not cheap... but...I have been wearing the same glasses for 8 years now. They have polarized and non polarized and you can buy replacement lenses. Also because they are rated safety glasses. The company I was working for at the time reimbursed me for a portion of the cost as well as I was able to claim them on my taxes as a work expense. Just throwing that out there.
