    Polarized lenses is used to prevent glares while progressive sunglasses are used to correct vision for different distance.According to your prescription, I think 1.67 index with polarized lenses are the better choice for you.

    I know that there are high index progressive lenses like 1.67 progressive lenses and 1.74 progressive lenses. But i am not sure if the lenses can make into sunglasses. As far as i know that people with strong prescription are not suggested to wear prescription sunglasses. So, i think you'd better not buy high index progressive lenses. Maybe you can solve this problem in other way like wearing trifocal contact lenses with plano sunglasses. Anyway, you'd better get an eye examination and ask suggestions from an eye doctor. He/she will give you the best suitable suggestion on wearing high index progressive sunglasses.
