You Love Sunglasses + We Love Lenses = A Perfect Match
Polarized lenses make great sense no matter where you are, but for some locations, polarized sunglasses couldn’t be a smarter or more necessary pick. Really bright and intense sunny locations such as Australia, Africa and the Middle East where the UV rating is seriously high.
Recently, Prince Charles made a trip to the sunny nation of Oman, showing off his style in some Wayfarer looking sunglasses. The Ray-Ban Wayfarer has been famous since the 1930s, but other manufacturers have their own Wayfarer inspired looks as well, such as Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Arnette, Gucci and many others. Why? Wayfarers don’t just look very cool; the large frames also provide a good deal of eye protection. Combining polarized lenses with the large Wayfarer frame makes for an excellent and very effective duo.
Remember if you ever damage your Wayfarer sunglasses or any other sunglass lenses, we can send out a new set of lenses to make sure that you get them quickly and back in style ASAP! You’ll save money and a great deal of time, and that will certainly help make your day a sunnier one.
Fast car races mean that as a spectator you need to be ready for anything. Catching all the action as it literally flies by can be tricky if you don’t have the right eyewear. This is true for any NASCAR event, but it is particularly true for an event such as the Kobalt 400. The Kobalt 400 is held in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. With that blazing Vegas sun comes the need for serious sunglasses and sunglass lenses that provide real protection.

Large frames and frames with a decided futuristic edge have made the cut and are now available. Fashion icons, such as Prada, Versace and Fendi, have some really big and bold designs this year that feature lots of interesting angles and vivid colors. Clearly, it is going to be a pretty innovative year for the industry and it could mark a real turning point.
Mirrored and Cat Eye Options
If you’ve read my other postings you know that I am a big fan of polarized lenses as they offer a great many advantages, such as boosting clarity of vision. I also like mirrored lenses a lot and the good news is that they could become quite popular this year. We've even added a blue mirrored lens that our customers were asking about. 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!

You’ll save time and money! So no matter whether you damage an old pair of Mui Mui Prada sunglases or fancy Jason Wu shades, we have you covered.
