I've got two pair of Oakley M-frames and one pair of an M-frame clone.
Not prescription. No distortion.

No, of course I didn't buy $150 sunglasses new, I got them all at yard
sales, most expensive $3.00 (the M-frame Pros, which is a stupid design
unless you have a pin-head). It's always good when a pissed-off wife
sells her husband's stuff :-)

Anybody can Google wrap-around. Even you Dicky. I wasn't
aware that I've expressed any such beliefs. Bad batch of
home grown saline?

In a past life I drove a semi cross country. I wore polarized
neutral grey glass lenses with a double gradient mirror. The
best I had were ones made (for a short time) by Nikon with
all the stuff on the inside of the sandwich (except for the AR
I think). They were aviator style and not wraps.

Currently I wear Rudy Project shades. They are wraps. I
sacrificed some visual quality for the plastic and he ability
to change lenses. Again the primary lenses are neutral
grey polarized. I use their golf lenses for golf (not polarized)
and the racing red for very flat conditions.

Rudy, Oakley, Maui Jim? all have lens designs to mitigate
the distortion from wraps. There was a distinct difference
in the Rudy wraps from my Nikons. I don't know if it was
the wrap or the material. I adapted and it doesn't bother
me.

Sunglasses are not the only kind that come in wrap-around -- high-fashion
eyeglasses of many species do also. Wrap-around progressives can be
actually quite amazing especially as they can be "aspherical" in a multitude
of ways.
