At one time, a spa was thought of as being something of a retreat designed for some serious relaxation. But today, the term spa applies to many different treatments in locations ranging from far away exotic locations to your local mall. Spas have lots of ways to protect and repair your skin, but did you know by wearing sunglasses with polarized lenses can help reduce wrinkles?

With all the sports and outdoor activity about to launch upon us with Spring blooming it's important to pause for a moment to reflect on just how important our vision is to our well being. Most sport’s related eye and vision injuries are preventable. By opting for the right kind of protective eyewear, it is possible to reduce one’s risk of injury. It is extremely important for children to have protective eyewear no matter what sport they are playing.
Sunglass lenses can definitely play a role in helping to protect eyesight. Sunglasses lenses from the top quality manufacturers, such as Oakley, Revo, Prada and Arnette, use such high tech lenses as polycarbonate sunglass lenses and polarized lenses. Polycarbonate lenses are important as they are highly durable and absorb impact. Ray-Ban primarily use glass lenses so they aren't as safe to use for sporting activities. Polarized lenses are also highly useful as they filter out harsh light. Once harsh light and glare is filtered out, it is possible to get a better view of the action and this, of course, means enhanced reaction time.
Keeping your sport’s glasses ready and on hand is critical in protecting your eye health. If your sunglass lenses become damaged for any reason, you don’t have to replace them. Instead, you can turn to The Sunglass Fix and we can ship you high-quality replacement lenses anywhere in the world, ready for action.

Happy Chinese New Year!
Every single Super Bowl is intense, but this one definitely has the makings of being more intense than normal. Why will this Super Bowl be so intense? The two head coaches, Jim and John, also share the same last name, in the form of Harbaugh. That’s right they are brothers. As you can imagine, no matter how this game turns out, family gatherings will never the same again, period!
Everybody will want to have the best view of the action possible for this game. You will need the best quality sunglass lenses that money can buy for this game. After all, you never want to miss this kind of action! Whether players and attendees opt for Arnette, Oakley, Ray-Ban or another brand, you can be sure that they will be wearing the best sunglasses lenses out there.
What I find most fascinating about this game is that you know these two coaches are going to give it everything that they have. It is one thing, after all, to lose the Super Bowl. It's quite another to lose it to your brother. While most of us wish we could have the opportunity to coach a team in the Super Bowl, for the loser this year, things could still be a little rough!
Well, one thing that is not rough is how much money you can save buying new lenses from us. We can send you out new sunglass lenses anywhere in the world and you can repair your sunglasses yourself. You might not make a big save at the Super Bowl, but you can save some big money on sunglass lenses.

Check it out on our Lens Selection page. And if you are a cat lover, then this is your year! Large cat eye shaped polarized sunglasses from manufacturers like Jason Wu and Rachel Roy are quite exciting!

It is wintertime, and I am thrilled because I love hitting the slopes for some skiing. But I am always amazed how many skiers lack good sports sunglasses. In fact, often I see people wearing no sunglasses at all! This is amazing, since most ski resorts have a sunglasses store right on the premises. You would think that would key them in on the fact that wearing sports sunglasses is part of the whole skiing experience and the glare from the snow is seriously damaging to the eyes.
So, ok, fellow skiers, here is what you want to keep in mind...
-First, don't skip durability. This usually means a good pair of polycarbonate lenses for your sports sunglasses. Nothing ruins a skiing trip faster than having your sunglasses break and explode into a million tiny fragments. Crashing with glass lenses, like in Ray-Ban's, would be a big no-no.
-Also don't forget that as you increase in altitude, the issue of UV exposure increases too! So you will need polarized sunglasses with at least 95% UV protection. Polarized sunglasses are also great for reducing glare off of the snow.
-Get sports sunglasses with good peripheral vision. No matter how great of a skier you may be, you want to see those idiots flying by you who may not be looking where they are going!
So keep it safe this skiing season. You can start with a visit to the sunglasses store. And don't forget, if your lenses do get damaged, you can hop right over to our site for a quick pair of replacements!
I am a big fan of all types of sunglasses and sunglasses optics. However, when I learned about some of these new eco-friendly options out there, I was really amazed.
First of all, I love bamboo! This wood not only looks sleek and sophisticated, it is sustainable and green as well. You can now find bamboo options and they come with the same level of quality and polarized lenses.
I also freaked out when I learned about the recycled goods that are being made into sunglasses. These materials go way beyond plastic and include everything from recycled beer bottles to whiskey containers. And the sunglasses optics are first rate as well. One of my favorites sunglasses USA companies is the Diamond Supply Co, which makes their sunglasses out of recycled skateboards! Juicy Couture is even out there making eyewear out of plant-based plastics.
More and more people want eco-friendly sunglasses, but they also expect to have top-notch polarized lenses and sunglasses optics. This new breed of company delivers!
Of course, if you really want to be eco-friendly, don't throw your sunglasses away if the lenses become scratched or damaged. Otherwise, they will just live out the rest of their days in a landfill somewhere! Instead, pop over to our shop and simply order some new polarized lenses. We have you and your needs covered. We'll help reduce your carbon footprint and make us all happy :)

They have big round frames with a little bit of the Jackie-O flair accompanied by intricate and elegant baroque swirls on the side. Plus, you can select your favorite of four amazing colors, which include Black, Havana, Light Havana and Pink Horn.

Now when you buy Prada polarized sunglasses from any legitimate sunglasses store, you will get a certificate of authenticity. Obviously, this means a lot and you want to hold onto your glasses for years and years to come, especially these ones that are kind of like a piece of art.

We love these monster sized Foam Sunglasses that were part of the art installations at this years FYF Fest in downtown Los Angeles that came alive with a some edgy underground musicians in today’s music scene ranging in musical genres from punk rock to new-age funk. Aaron Hansen is showing sitting in front of these huge shades giving you an idea of the sheer size of them, a little hard to pop on your face!
Three of the four art pieces were a huge six-and-a-half feet tall, 15 ft .wide and 18 ft. long. They were solid foam sunglasses, each with a different mural painted across the lenses. The back of the sunglasses were covered in special chalk board paint. Concert-goers used chalk to add to the design, a ceative way to get them invovled in the art work and help steer the mood of the concert.
As much as we love this art installation we're not sure we'll be able to install new lenses into these babies any time soon.......
What Happens if You Lose Your Lucky Sports Sunglasses During the Olympics?
As you might imagine, each time the Olympics roll around, outdoor athletes get out their best sports sunglasses. An excellent pair of polarized sunglasses can make the difference between successfully representing one's country and failure. Olympic athletes sometimes spend their entire lifetimes getting ready, and so success is imperative. Anything that can give them the edge can mean the world to them.
This year, one British professional cyclist named Lizzie Armistead
was horrified when she accidentally lost her Oakley sports sunglasses. Believe it or not, the police were contacted on her behalf. They sent out a message on their Twitter feed begging onlookers to turn in her Oakleys if they happened to find them. Part of the reason for all the drama is that these were Armistead's "lucky sunglasses."
If you have ever had a pair of lucky sunglasses, you can probably relate to how miserable you might be if they were lost. Of course, if you contacted the police, they would be likely to laugh a bit and point you in the direction of the closest sunglasses store!
Our clients have been happy to learn that we can provide high-end aftermarket Oakley lenses for a very reasonable price. While we may not be able to help you if you lose your glasses, if you accidentally scratch of damage the lenses, we can quickly send out some replacements. This is a good way to allow your good luck to continue!
Each year's Tour de France is an exciting occasion, as this race brings out the best and brightest cyclists from around the world. The 2012 race participants included people from around the world. While Lance Armstrong is no longer racing, there were some very promising riders from the US this year including George Hincapie, Tejay van Garderen, Tom Danielson and Chris Horner. In fact, people are already calling Tom Danielson the "next Lance Armstrong!"
But have you ever wondered why so many of the cyclists wear similar sports sunglasses? (No, they do not all shop at the same sunglasses store!) There is actually a simple reason behind these similarities and that is that the high-end sunglasses manufacturers clamour to sponsor Tour de France cycling teams and champions like Bradley Wiggins. It's a top event in their calendar to get their latest sunglasses out in on show.

Oakley and Rudy Project Polarized Sunglasses

Rudy Project specializes in sports sunglasses and markets itself to cyclists as well as fishermen, golfers, and those involved in motorsports. Rudy works to offer special features that benefit cyclists like an ergonomic design and optimal ventilation.

Here's what a customer from Germany had to say:

Are you wondering what all the fuss is around wearing Polarized lenses? Are you constantly perturbed by excess sun glare? Do you suffer from lack of concentration while driving or fishing, leaving you fuming in the end? It’s time you try polarized lenses and do away with the pesky glares that cause you irritation once and for all?
Polarized lenses have a special anti reflective coating either inserted in the middle of the lens, or more commonly sealed on the outside of the lens and are usually made from plastic or polycarbonate. This special layer is capable of blocking harmful UV rays from 360 degree angles, unlike regular lenses that only block UV rays coming directly at the lens. These lenses help ward off the glare from sideward, upward and downward angles and provide you with clearer views with great visibility in dim, hazy and super sunny conditions. They really are the best all round lens.
Here's why polarized lenses are so popular these days:
1. While fishing:
How often does it happen that you lose out on that fresh stock of sea life, just because the rays of the sun don’t allow you to concentrate well? The glare during peak hours can be a damper and it makes it tough to look beyond a certain point. Polarized lenses thus take good care of all excessive glares and allows you to see deeper into waters when the glare is reduced, so you can see those big fish.
2. While driving:
Polarized lenses are even worn by those who spend too much time in the sun driving. Thus drivers wearing these lenses don’t feel the strain on their eyes, even after driving for long hours. Often, the reflection of the sun from the back window of the car can be annoying, and you tend to lose your focus while being behind the wheel because of that and other glare reflected off the road and buildings around the car. Polarized lenses take care of that and they also come in handy while you are driving on a wet road and need better concentration.
It should be noted that polarized lenses comes with their own limitations, for example, they do not work on snowy surfaces, as the light is reflected in all directions. So you must not use them while skiing or moving downhill.
And now that you know the reasons why you should pick a pair of polarized lenses, don’t wait any longer. We have a new range of Ultimate Polarized Lenses that our customers rave about, so don't wait to buy a new set of polarized sunglasses, get a pair of brand new custom lenses for your sunglasses at The Sunglass Fix.
From rags to riches, Ted Potter Jr has gone from working in a cart barn, through the mini tour ranks (twice) and the Web.com Tour to the PGA TOUR. Now he's a PGA Tour champion after winning the famous Greenbrier Classic last weekend from out of the blue.
Sport is always full of terrific rags to riches stories, and this guy is certainly near the top of the list. He had years of blows and not making the cut but kept on perservering and beliveing in himself that one day it would happen. And well, now it has and the world is watching in amazement.
We take our hats, and our sunglasses, off to your sheer determination Ted. It really is what makes the difference between winning and losing in many situations. In fact many of our friends and family told us that starting a sunglass lens replacement business was crazy and we shouldn't quit our corporate jobs. Thanks to Craig's perserverance, just like Ted, we worked hard to build The Sunglass Fix and today can live off the business! Thanks to all our customers and we hope you take some inspiration from Ted's story of following his passion and dreams.
Ever wondered why you'd want to wear yellow tinted lenses in your sunglasses?
If you’ve ever worn polarized sunglasses, then you already know just how effective they are at reducing glare. Likewise, yellow tinted lenses can also work wonders for improving your overall vision.
Those already contemplating lens replacement or scratched sunglasses repair will be happy to hear that choosing colored lenses is easy, quick and can, of course, help improve their vision. People frequently select yellow tinted lenses due to their ability to absorb both blue as well as ultraviolet light. Athletes and those who just spend a lot of time outdoors will find that yellow tinted lenses do much to enhance overall vision.
UV Light and Yellow Tinted Lenses
Those who spend a good deal of time outdoors at dusk or dawn will find that yellow tinted lenses can help their vision considerably. Foggy and overcast conditions likewise help make everything you see brighter and clearer, since yellow lenses absorb blue light and UV light. They're great for fishermen out on the water in the wee hours of the morning or when you're playing your favourite sports at dusk like the owner of The Sunglass Fix, Craig Anderson, playing frisbee at dusk and well into the night every Monday evening.
Yellow tinted lenses have a range of benefits. However, it should be noted that yellow tinted lenses do not serve to protect the eyes from infrared light.
Cyclist Frequently Choose Yellow Tinted Lenses
Those svelte looking cyclists racing around the Tour de France circut face the full range of weather conditions and every type of lighting condition possible. Cyclists frequently choose yellow tinted lenses for the visual clarity that they provide, not just to look good!
In fact, outdoor athletes of all kinds often opt for polarized sunglasses with yellow tinted lenses, as these lenses offer excellent depth perception, as they filter out blue light. This, of course, means that the blue in the sky is also filtered out.
Ray-Ban turned 75 this year.
Released in 1937 the Ray-Ban Aviator has worn the test of time and had a massive resurgence of popularity in the last few years with big celebrity names wearing the Aviators such as Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Sharon Stone, Minka Kelly, Jennifer Anniston, Kate Moss, Jonny Depp to name a few!

Georgia May Jagger has been selected as the new 'Face' of The Sunglass Hut for her great facial lines and edgy, young, look. Madonna recently named her the face of her clothing Material Girl clothing line so she's in hot demand at only 19 years old!
Appears it does help to have good genes such as Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall as parents. The official launch of the new sunglasses campaign is September so we'll be looking at what brand and style of sunglasses the huge fashion brand has her wearing to promote them? Any guesses? Looks like she's wearing the a glam version of the cat-eye sunglasses with her pouty red lips, made famous by her father. Both Prada and Gucci have recently released a new line of cat-eye sunglasses. They're nearly as popular as the Ray-Ban Wayfarer's comeback at the moment.

So it's only a month before the biggest cycling race in the world takes place. Cadel Evans is now taking part in the major race leading up to the big ride, The Dauphine Libere, that gives some clues on who are most likely to take the yellow jersey into Paris at the end of July for the Tour de France.
He came second last year at the Dauphine last before the big race that put the Aussie on the map; winning the biggest cycling prize in history for an Australian.
Cadel told The Australian Online; “I'll come away from the Dauphine and head to the Tour with my own plan, to ride my own race,” said the BMC Racing team leader. Cadel has cited some sinus problems that has slowed his pace in 2012 but is keen to work with is team on the road in the lead up to the Tour de France.
Cadel is sponsored by Oakley as are many of the top cyclists in the world. It's no wonder because Oakley do make some of the best frames and lenses on the market with a great fit and superior comfort for any sport. Cadel is a fan of the Oakley Radar and Oakley Fast Jacket sunglasses.
We have many customers here at the Sunglass Fix who get aftermarket replacement lenses for their Oakleys, one customer said he'd had his for 23 years! Now that's some solidly built frames to last a lifetime.....but if you need new lenses check out our range of Oakley replacement lenses.
zers of the 2012 Indianapolis 500 speedway race on Sunday handed out mock ups of Dan's iconic white sunglasses to celebrate his life and passion on the speedway.
Wheldon, the defending race winner and a two-time champ, was killed in the October finale last season, and the entire day was in honor of D-dub, the fallen champ.
Luckily for Dan three of his best friends were nutting it out for the championship and the Scottsman, Dario Franchitti, came out on top taking the title and etching his name next to his buddy Dan's on the trophy.
Just not sure we can replace the sunglass lenses in these tribute shades though!
It's that time of year again when all the stars strut their stuff at the annual Cannes Film Festival held on the French Riviera, arguably one of the world's biggest cinema showcases. Although the US Films didn't do so well this year Brad Pitt certainly made a splash turning up on the red carpet in his mega expensive $1250 Sama Sunglasses. Certainly a great accessory for his black tux that gave off some great reflections in the mirrored sunglass lenses.
Michael Haneke's "Love" (Amour) won the coveted Palme d'Or for best picture, with New Zealand-born Andrew Dominik's "Killing Them Softly", starring Brad Pitt as a mob enforcer in a recession-hit U.S. city, was popular.
Brad proves that the Ray-Ban Aviator style is still hot for this summer and are true legends when it comes to longevity because the last time he was seen sporting them was back in the early 2000's for his movie Moneyball. The lavish aviator-style sunglasses, are made from 100 percent pure titanium and highly mirrored lenses that are vapor coated in pure 18k rose gold. The style, called "Black Onyx," is also available in yellow gold, platinum and kohl.
Lance Armstrong may be not be in the Y gen category of athletes but he's still proven that age is no barrier to winning and can be a lethal weapon. His mental maturity and his experience proved too hard to beat at the recent Panama 70.3 Triathon. Lance caused quite a stir when he arrived for a pro meeting pictured below. Naturally the age group athletes were swooning the tent to get a shot or glimpse of the Tour de France cycling champion, and who can blame them!
Lance is an Oakley fan on and off the race track looking casually cool in his Oakley Polarized Titanium Crosswires.
The new Oakley Polarized Titanium Crosswire, with the classic appeal of the Ray-Ban Aviator look combined with the awesome Oakley technology these look like a killer pair of new release sunglasses by Oakley for both on and off the sports field. We sure hope to provide our customers with some great aftermarket replacement lenses to fit into these Oakleys in the near future.
It’s spring once again and it's fishing season. The sun is rising beautifully by this time, you can marvel at its beauty without having to profusely sweat because of the heat and humidity of summer.
Fish populations are active during spring. But if you’re going fishing, it’s likely that light will be reflected off the water’s surface that can be annoying. That's why specialist polarized sunglasses are essential. Polarised lenses can filter out the light coming from all angels, especially off the waters surface and boats etc. For the fishermen who love their sport it’s frustrating when they can’t see the water or the big fish lurking under the water. Being able to see clearly, even in harsh lighting conditions, means that you’re able to see if you have a fish on your line and wearing polarised sunglass lenses will help even the amateur fisherman catch a big one.
Fishing is all about relaxing but if excess light causes migraines it’s not fun. What you need is a good pair of polarized sunglasses on hand to protect your eyes to be sure you’ll be relaxed your whole fishing trip.
Some popular models of sports fishing glasses are Mako Sleek that fits tightly around the head with full eye coverage to ensure they don’t slip off when leaning over the boat reeling in the big one. Their are Old Harbour Outfitters that take their fishing shades seriously and FishGlitz that are popular for fishing.
So wherever you go this spring to find that perfect fishing hole, or out on the ocean for deep sea fishing don't forget to take care of your eyes by wearing polarized lenses. If you already have a favorite pair of fishing sunglasses that you wear but you don’t have a clean set of lenses, we stock a new line of premium polarized lenses that our customers rave about, check out our facebook page to see what our customers are saying about them.

This is done using LCD screens that identify where your eyes are when you look into the screen. Now you can try on the latest styles like Ray-Ban Wayfarer in some funky colors such as violet and cyclamen.

Everyone needs a pair of sunglasses for the summer season. But they can come with some limitations, especially when it comes to changing the style or look depending on your outfit or purpose. No doubt your sunglasses come as they did when you bought them, now with a paint scratch here and there after a few years of wear. Previously using sunglasses to change shake up your image meant changing sunglasses entirely.
Now Arnette is changing all that. The new Arnette Creative Exchange System, or A.C.E.S, has developed the ability to customize some of their sunglasses. These new 2012 season sunglasses allow you to change how depending on how you feel. It's so easy to change the color by slipping in the plates. Going to a party, no problem, you can change the plate to make your sunglasses look sleek. Need to hit the skatepark? Slip in a new colour to amp up the color.
Having friends join in can change up the styles even more. This new Creative Exchange System also lets you swap style parts with your buddies – customizability and flexibility at its finest. It puts the fun back in sunglasses, not just in how you use it but in the different styles you can have with just a single pair. For the price of one pair of shades it's like having multiple pairs so you won't get tired of them so easily.
With Arnette’s Creative Exchange System, if will feel like you've got a few pairs of sunglasses with the different looks that you can customize with the same feel and comfort, that totally fit to your head shape.
Take it that step further. Why not get some different colored lenses for different styles and uses. Silver mirrored polarized lenses for the skatepark or beach, smoke gradient for the evening when you're out on the town with your buddies.
With 13,000 lenses that can be fitted into almost any existing frames, The Sunglass Fix claims a true world’s first, with their lens replacement service. Their unique company has just been named one of the start up companies to watch over the next few years.
For Immediate Release
Byron Bay, Australia – Having steadily built their business from the ground up over the past 26 months to provide the only full service lens replacement company, the panel from the StartupSmart Awards thinks The Sunglass Fix are a company to keep an eye on as they continue to expand their impressive lens replacement business.
The second annual StartupSmart Awards feature many other businesses set for big, or bigger, things, with a top 50 that has a combined revenue of $115.6 million, well ahead of last year’s total of $88 million.
The awards panel were flooded with entries of such high quality they were compelled to compile a list of companies to watch in the coming years. The judging panel said there were some really great ideas out there that were worth recognition.
With many manufactures producing sunglasses with disposability in mind, the team at The Sunglass Fix have developed a unique way to replace the lenses while re-using existing frames.
“With over 300 applicants we’re proud to be named one of the up and coming companies to watch as we continue to grow. With such an unusual business concept, and starting from scratch, we didn’t have a lot of support among friends and family to begin with. However they’ve all since changed their minds with our back to back Platinum Australia Customer Service Awards, and now this recognition just furthers our drive to continue to be the best business we can be.” Comments Lainie Anderson, Vice President of Marketing for The Sunglass Fix.
Amanda Gome, chief executive of Private Media and founder of StartupSmart, says the companies on the 2012 list “have only known hard times”, so their success should be applauded. “They all started in the GFC, have struggled to find capital to grow and yet they have flourished.” Amanda comments in the March 28th StartupSmart press release
The Sunglass Fix boasts an impressive business with an inventory of over 13,000 lenses to fit almost any type of frame. In order to make lens replacement an attractive proposition, the team has worked diligently with suppliers and manufactures to supply designer-quality lenses at great prices. Coupled with free global shipping, replacing old frames is now becoming a popular alternative to buying new sunglasses.
With an ultimate goal to be able to replace any type of frame ever invented, Lainie and her team are out in force to dominate the bright world of sunglasses.
“Of course, there are still hurdles to be overcome. Our customers are elated to find out that they can actually get their lenses replaced and continually post positive comments on our facebook page or send us emails. Getting the message out there that our products and services exist is perhaps our biggest challenge but one we’re most driven to achieve.” Explains Lainie Anderson.
It’s easy to see why. With advertising and marketing often showcasing the latest sunglass trends and fashions, the idea of replacing lenses in existing frames may not be the first option consumers think of.
“It’s natural to fall into the trap of advertising. However, with frequent new sunglasses remaining an expensive and often reluctant hobby for many, we know that people will be thrilled to learn that they can spend just a fraction of the cost replacing their existing lenses. Australia already loves this new concept, and we’re sure the global sunglass community will love it too” she concludes.
Did you know that Sunglasses can actually save your eyes from stray balls? It's true.
Last week Miguel Cabrera, a professional baseball player for the Detroit Tigers, had a close call with a ground ball that hit him around his right eye. The force of the impact caused a small fracture to his orbital bone, the bone below his eye. Miguel quickly held his hand up to his eye and as he pulled it away blood could be seen covering his right hand. ""Thank God I have sunglasses on," Cabrera said after he learned the blow to his face from a ground ball Monday had not done more serious damage. "I'm lucky."
The sunglasses Cabrera was wearing saved him from a serious eye injury that could cost him the whole season but instead, only got eight stitches under his right eye and a layoff close to one week.
There are some sports where you cannot wear sunglasses because of the nature of the sport but many enable the use of Sunglasses so it's pays to make sure you've always got your best pair of sunglasses with you when you're stepping onto the sports field. Baseball is one sport where you can wear protective eyewear out on the field, especially when you're out in the sun for long periods of time like when playing Baseball or Cricket.
You don’t really need to wait for something similar to what happened to Miguel Cabrera to say that sunglasses could have saved your life. Don't forget that wearing sunglasses not only protect your eyes but if you're wearing Polarized Lenses they'll also improve your performance because you'll be well protected from the glare of the sun and unnecessary reflections off metal and car surfaces.

Finding it difficult to think of a fun and whimsical gift this Valentines Day? How about buying her the latest celebrity fashion, sweet heart sunglasses? Give her something edgy that she’ll love and be able to use all year round.
All women want to be loved and what better way to say ‘I Love You’ than to hand your special someone a pair of red hot heart shaped sunglasses. Not many of her girlfriends will have them so they're sure to stand out.
You can easily pick up a cute pair of these sweetheart sunglasses online. I noticed that a customer on the Urban Outfitters website commented that she liked them better than her Ray Bans! If you’re worried about the quality of lenses in some of the cheap heart shaped sunglasses we can provide premium quality lens to replace the old ones, so you end up with some great lenses and turn them into a super cute pair of sunglasses that are great for your eyes too. What more could you ask for on Valentines Day, something you can wear with fun and style all year round.
Can’t decide if you want to wear your mirrored sunglasses for a sleek look while shopping, or your sports G15 polarized green while running along the beach? Thanks to Ray-Ban’s newly released Flip Out range you can ‘pop’ in new lenses, any place, any time.
Ray-Ban has introduced a new model called the ‘Flip Out’ that’s an interchangeable lens system for their most popular models; Aviator and Caravan. These top models now come with a set of three different colored lenses, allowing you to choose the color to suit your lifestyle. This new model is the latest in Ray-Ban frame technology offering super durable metal frames to last the distance with the lenses.
Ray-Ban being such an iconic brand is worn by all the big name celebrities that wear the classic’s, they never seem to go out of style.
I guess we can all dream of looking as good as these celebrities while wearing our Ray-Ban Aviators!
Being such a leader in both style and technology, they’re obviously confident that their sunglasses will stand the test of time. That’s why they are now offering replacement lenses.
It makes sense, when you invest in designer, high quality, long lasting frames to interchange the lenses to suit different seasons, or styles. That’s why at The Sunglass Fix we offer over 10,000 after market lenses that are guaranteed to perform as good as the originals, or better, or your money back. Take a look at our lens selection and try some for yourself and tell us how they perform for you.
Oakley’s latest release this season continues the trend of large sunglasses and big lenses. Rumours are that Oakley plan to replace the Hijinx and Monster Dog models with the newly released Pit Bull.

“From what we’ve reviewed this new model is even larger than the very popular Hijinx and Monster Dogs. It does come with the typical top notch features you’d expect from Oakley including nose pads and ear stems that lock around the face to ensure a really tight fit to avoid falling off when competing. Naturally you can choose from the range of Oakley lenses or you could choose to add lenses from our range of polarized lenses as a back up pair so you’re not left stranded out on the field. We have a range of colors in our polarized lenses to choose from to suit your style.” says Craig Anderson, owner of The Sunglass Fix.
Oakley has solidified themselves as the legends of innovation when it comes to sports sunglasses, being one of the first sunglass businesses to transform sports sunglasses into fashion items. Oakley’s key is it’s continual ability to merge style and function for a high performing piece of fashion that gives competitors that winning edge. It also delivers the health benefit of reducing harmful UV light. All this in one pair of sunglasses!
Also new to the Oakley collection are some collectable Jawbones from the new Max Fearlight range. The Jawbone collection are iconic and worn by world class athletes such as Lance Armstrong, and this years Aussie winner, Cadel Evans amongst other tour de France riders. The Max Fearlight range was released as part of a big advertisement campaign where a futuristic survivor of a solar Armageddon steps out into the blinding UV sunlight wearing Oakley Jawbones.

“The Jawbone series is a great invention by Oakley where each person can customize their sunglasses for their own sporting needs and performance. You’re able to choose from a big range of lenses for varying light conditions. And when you’re out in the elements we all know that it can not only change on a daily basis, but even hourly at times.” Comments Craig Anderson from The Sunglass Fix
The new Jawbones feature the classic Oakley Switchlock Technology that has an interchangeable lens design for any lenses to be popped in and out to suit the conditions.
“Not only can you switch Oakley lenses but you can also put in after market lenses like our premium polarized range. For as little as $38.95 you can have a set of polarized lenses shipped to your door to pop into your Jawbone frame.” Explains Craig Anderson, owner of the online sunglass business.
When pushing yourself to the edge it’s inevitable that you’ll come up with some scratched sunglasses. Lens replacement is a great option to make sure you’ve always got scratch free lens.
“We offer a money back guarantee to ensure the lenses meet the high standards of your originals. Many of our customers have posted on our facebook site about how satisfied they are with our lenses and service so check us out at http://www.facebook.com/thesunglassfix.” explains Craig Anderson.
