Just be careful when you buy the cheap open water glasses. The one thing sometimes forgotten is we also need these glasses to shield us from both UVA and UVB rays. Cheap glasses rarely have the 99-100% blockage and that's what you need if you use them any more often than just occasionally. Cataracts and other eye problems are not worth the small amount of $$$ saved by buying too cheaply.

Just a quick update. My Spotters from Australia did not arrive before my trip to Andros so I will not be able to report on them, at least as regards flats fishing, until later in the year. I ended up using an old pair (ten years or more) of prescription Specialized Eyeware SE1000 glasses that were several prescriptions ago and they worked fine. Obviously, the changes in my prescription are tiny because I had very little trouble spotting fish. The lens color would best be described as dark amber.
