Wearing Glasses Shouldn't Prevent You From Protecting Your Eyes with Solar Shield (Review with Giveaway, Ends 04/15/14, US Only)

Disclosure: We received free sunglasses in exchange for our honest opinion about them.

Just because some of us choose to wear eyeglasses instead of contacts doesn't mean that we shouldn't have options when it comes to eye protection, right? While our body needs vitamin D from the sun, UV rays can still be harmful to our eyes in excess. Not to mention sun glare while driving is another hazard!

These sunglasses are for me. They are Solar Shield's Classic Aviator sunglasses.  

Solar Shield Fits Over® Classic Sunglasses are a practical and affordable alternative to prescription sunglasses. Created to be worn over prescription frames, Solar Shield Fits Over® Classic Sunglasses provide optimal protection from the sun while driving or outdoors.

• Designed to fit over eyeglasses
• Lightweight nylon frame
• Polarized lenses reduce glare
• Lenses block 100% UV rays
• The leading brand provided by doctors to their patients

These glasses go on easily. I never have had to fight to put them on, even if I am moving quickly.

They fit me very comfortably.

See how well they protect my eyes?

They cover a large amount around my eyes so that I don't even get sun glare in the corner of my eye.

They aren't the most stylish sunglasses by any means. They are plain and simple. But how they look doesn't matter to me. Functionality is what matters to me.

Daniella even likes to borrow them when she forgets to bring her own!
My son received the ultralight clipon sunglasses by Solar Shield.
He thinks he looks cool.

Too cool to even smile.

See the top wire? It enables the clipons to stretch to fit any width. The grips have not done any damage to his glasses across the course of several months' usage.
