    I have had pretty much every model of Oakley's over the years. My last pair was polarized Gascans and the lenses started peeling under normal use like some do it yourself tint job on a 1983 Datsun.

    I've been wearing ESS 5Bs with mirrored gray ANSI 787+ polarization ever since.

    OP, be sure to get her wrap around style sunglasses. The ESS 5Bs are such as was the Gascans, best lenses in the world won't help those with light sensitivity if the sides allow light to spill in.

    I wear Flying Fisherman polarized sunglasses. They are cheap, durable, and my current pair has lasted about six years- so whatever.

    You should get with a doctor and figure the part of the spectrum that is triggering the migranes - it may not be intensity ( wave amplitude) of the light but rather the type of light (wave length).

    I know that is probably something you've been looking at, but you should get a doc's perspective on what rays to block.

    I've seen folks that couldn't read under fluorescent lights o just fine with a piece of yellowish film over the page.

    I'm in the eye surgical business and my ex wife sold Maui Jim for years. We learned different people like different lenses. I suffer from night blindness, so I like lighter lenses the rose etc. she has blue eyes and much prefer the grey dark lenses.

    Maui Jim are good, Costa etc. I think Oakley are very average for a high price. They are not known for their lenses. They did start their polarized lenses years back but still lack IMHO. Style and functionality, yes. But she might like them. IVE owned several pair of Oakley, so I'm not a hater.

    Have her go to a Sun Glass hut, try many pair on and see what her eyes like. Best of luck.
