I’ve been on a quest over the past few years for good quality, affordable prescription sunglasses. Warby Parker definitely has super cute frames, but their sunglasses are $200+ for prescription lenses! No thanks. I’ve been limping along squinting through my beautiful Quay sunglasses, but the older I get, the worse my vision gets, and I knew I needed to cave in and get something better. Enter GlassesShop – they’re an online eyeglass company specializing in frames and lenses (prescription or not.) Their prices are reasonable, so I was happy to give them a try!
They have a variety of different sunglass frames to choose from, and even trendy blue and green lens coatings. I opted for the Americus Aviators, which are delicate cat eye lenses with metal arms. The pads on the nose of the bridge aren’t uncomfortable (I wore these for a day at the zoo so for three hours plus, they sat there without digging in or being uncomfortable at all.) The lenses are coated nicely and don’t seem like they’ll scratch easily (but I’m not willing to test it ;)) and the quality makes me want to grab a few more prescription sunglasses! Each pair also comes with its own case and cleaning cloth to keep your shades nice and transparent.
Sunglasses aren’t just a fun accessory – they’re an important part of preventing sun damage to your eyes. (Skin isn’t the only thing that can get sunburned!) This post from the National Institute of Health outlines some of the diseases your eyes can be at risk for from sunlight, but GlassesShop’s sunglasses offer UVA and UVB coverage to protect your eyes this summer while keeping you super fashionable.
