I would expect other high end sunglasses have this also but your cheaper models like from boots etc etc will have passed basic UV level tests etc etc but will not have the level of protection that brands like oakley have as standard.
Hi Solent. Sorry to correct, but to save confusion, optical correction and UV are different things. You are right though, good quality lens manufacturers do indeed produce better optics, and have better UV and polarising performance. However, even branded sunglasses offer cheaper versions to appeal to the masses.
Edited. Apologies: reread your post Bombard. I can see you were separating the two issues, not linking them. My fault cos I can't see properly through my Blue Light filter lenses ;-)
