That’s good to know. Thank you for sharing. I’ve always been a cheap sunglasses guy over the years but over the past three years my eye sight has gone really south.I refuse to wear cheap sunglasses. The dark lenses let your eyes dilate but they don’t provide UV protection so they let the sun cook your eyes ... leads to macular degeneration and lots of other eye issues.
Worth a google for sure.
Make sure they say 100% UVA/UVB protection and at least 400nm UV absorption.
EssilorLuxottica probably makes them whatever you buy so brand isn’t super important...but coatings are
Did Costa warranty them for you when the rubber was falling off? The same thing has happened to mine pretty much in the last two weeks.I posted earlier on this thread about how much I loved my glass Costas. They finally fell apart to the point I couldn’t hold them together with superglue anymore. The rubber basically melted off the plastic frame. They replaced with a totally different style that I’m not a huge fan of so I ordered some Maui Jim’s. I’ve had them about a month. I like the frames more than my Costas and they are a fair bit lighter and more comfortable. The lenses are very good, but I’d say I liked the silver mirror of the Costas slightly more than the Bronze Maui Jim’s. Both brands are great.
They did warranty them, but said that model was no longer available (it was the Fantail and clearly is still available) so they gave me a few alternate options, none of which I really liked.Did Costa warranty them for you when the rubber was falling off?

Agreed. Got a taste for Oakley's back in my Army days. Very reliable.No complaints with the several pairs of Oakley's I've owned. They have all ended up on the bottoms of lakes, rivers, and oceans. I can't seem to lose my Bolles, but I would consider Oakleys if I ever do.
