If, like me, you wear prescription glasses, the costs of getting effective protection from the sun’s glare can be prohibitive. What better time to consider a budget busting alternative to prescription sunglasses?
“I tried prescription sunglasses in the past, but found the cost to be prohibitive”
I’ve been wearing specs for many years, and have lost count of the small fortune I must have spent in numerous pairs of expensive lenses and frames.
I tried prescription sunglasses in the past, but found the cost to be prohibitive, especially now I wear varifocals. I tried getting a second pair of glasses with tinted lenses. That was frustrating, having to take two different sets of glasses around with me. I tried getting specs with light-reactive lenses and found they took too long to go clear again.
“I took another look at clip on sunglasses”
So, I took another look at clip on sunglasses. I’d been bought them as a child when we went on beach holidays, and my recollection of them was not favourable. They didn’t fit well, were uncomfortable, frequently slipped out of position or fell off, and seem to scratch and break all too easily. They didn’t even seem to stop the glare very well.
But some 30 years + later, I found to my delight, that clip on sunglasses have moved on in leaps and bounds in terms of design and comfort.
“Solarclips spring-fit sunglasses are so neat that many people think you’re wearing prescription sunglasses”
Solarclips spring-fit sunglasses are so neat that when clipped to your specs many people think you’re wearing prescription sunglasses. And at £19.99 including a lined hard case, they are about 10% of the cost, too!
Clip on sunglasses are a convenient option for many people – no need to carry around separate pairs of glasses, for example.
Eyewear Accessories, the UK retailer for Solarclips, has multiple different size/shape combinations, so that whether your glasses are rectangular, oval, or almond shaped, you can normally find a good fit. We even have shallow clipons that fit over reading glasses and different lens tints that are optimised for driving and fishing.
So, if you’re feeling the squeeze, but need to go out in the sun, it’s time to take a look at the clip-ons at clipon-sunglasses.co.uk!
