Summer may be just a distant memory, but that doesn’t mean you can skip the sunglasses this season. Even though the sun may not feel as strong as on a blistering July day, its rays can still do serious damage to your eyes.
According to WebMD, the fall and winter sun sits lower in the sky (and at a different angle) than during the summer. Believe it or not, this actually gives you more exposure if you are outdoors for any length of time!
Finding just the right pair of sunglasses, however, can be daunting. UV-blocking, polarized, reflective… there are so many options. And, if you require prescription lenses, you’ll need to add that into the mix, as well.
One incredible resource I recently discovered is DiscountGlasses.com. This online retailer has every style of glasses imaginable! And, incredible sorting options allow you to zero in on exactly the type of glasses you need, without endless searching. Sort by frame shape, type of lens, designer, features, size, or even color. Plus, if you already have a frame you love that fits well, each listing includes complete measurements of glasses length, width and bridge for easy comparison.
For me, I have been longing for some oversized rectangular / square sunglasses after reading about the 1970’s inspired trend everywhere from Who, What, Wear to VOGUE. But, finding just the right pair was proving tricky. At DiscountGlasses.com, I did a simple search and quickly found Lunettos London oversized frames in tortoise, which had exactly the feel I wanted – chic and fashion-forward, but not so trendy that they would not stay oh-so-stylish for years to come.
I loved them in the online picture, but would they look right on my face?
DiscountGlasses.com took all of the guesswork out of my online buying experience with their “Virtual Try On” feature. To use the feature, you simply record a five-second video turning your head. Then, snap a pic using a business card or driver’s license for scale. Easy!
My sunglasses arrived in just days. And – bonus! – they came with a lovely protective hard case, as well as a cleaning cloth and spray cleaning solution.
Best of all, not only are they incredibly stylish, these shades 100% UVA/UVB protection. So, I know I am keeping my eyes safe.
To see measurements and options for these frames, click Lunettos London. I chose the tortoise option with amber lenses, but these shades are also available in black/grey, matte black/silver, matte grey/grey, and crystal/orange mirror combinations. This particular frame is considered adult and full frame. And, both prescription and progressive lenses are available for this style. Retail $39.95
