Ah...I used to own a pair of Vuarnet Nautilux back in the early 90s too. Great lens! I actually used to wear those sunglasses at night when I was driving because the tint turned the roads completely black, but the amber lens really highlighted reflectors and lights. Awesome on the water too.
For prescription sunglass wearers, like me, a great site is heavyglare.com. They have an absolutely massive collection of sunglasses they can put a prescription into (oddly enough, no Vuarnets...). Only down side is you can't see how the glasses look on you first, but that can be solved with a quick trip to Sunglass Hut next time you're in range of a mall....
That being said, you can find me in a pair of Oakley Whiskers when the sun threatens to show its face in Seattle. Compression fit on the sides of the head instead of ear hooks keeps 'em on my face better
