We are very fortunate to have a great vision plan at Hubby’s work. Insurance covers all the bells and whistles on our lenses, so we always upgrade them to the Transition ones. Those are the kind where the lenses darken in direct sunlight.
Notice the direct sunlight part? They’re great for outside, but not so much for driving. When you’re inside the vehicle the lenses don’t do “their thing”. Very frustrating for wearers of eyeglasses.
Sure you can get the clip on shades, or the magnetic ones. I’ve had those before, and they’re sometimes a hassle to get on and off. I’ve had some that have scratched up my frames, and others that have bent.
As part of the Family Review Network, I have had a chance to receive a pair of sunglasses from Sunglass Warehouse, an online store in the Affordable Style network. And affordable these sunglasses really are! The majority of the sunglasses featured on their site are under $20.00.
Sunglass Warehouse has sunglasses for everyone; men, women and kids. And there is a style for everyone as well. Take me for instance and my Fit Over Sunglasses.
I was sent the OveRxCast Medium Polarized Sunglasses, and I love them! I have been looking for the perfect driving shades that I can use with my prescription glasses, and had not found anything I was happy with, until I got these.
These aren’t your average sunglasses they are a bit “bulkier” in shape, not in weight though, they are very lightweight. What makes them different from other sunglasses (well besides the fact that they fit over your regular glasses) is that as you can see in the picture, they wrap around your eyes. For driving that’s a huge plus. When you’re looking using your side vision, that is shaded as well!
The lenses are polarized and cut through the glare better than any clip ons I’ve had. Hubby was driving my car the other day, and decided to try them out, and he said they are decidedly better for driving then the current pair of clips he has for his glasses in his car.
You can also see that the sizing ranges well. The sunglasses fit well over top of my glasses and sit well on my tiny face, but also fit over my husband’s glasses and face.
I’d pick function over style any day, but that’s a choice you don’t have to make at Sunglass Warehouse, they even provide a way to help you choose a pair based on your face shape and skin tone, how cool is that?
