23 April 2013 - Who Will Stun Audiences at This Years Kentucky Derby?

The historic Kentucky Derby was created in 1875, and much of the credit must go to Col. Meriwether Lewis Clark, Jr. who spearheaded the development of the race was instrumental in finding the funding to build what would become Churchill Downs.  Since 1875, the Kentucky Derby has grown into a true global phenomenon.  People around the world now watch this short, two-minute race of the world’s top three-year-old horses to see which one will stun audiences. 

Attending the race in person is a treat, but you do need to make sure you can see all the action; after all, this race is only two-minutes long.  That means you want the best sunglasses as well as the best sunglass lenses, with designer frames such as Prada or Oakley giving you the best frame and lenses.  You better have them on when the race begins!  As you look around the racetrack, you will see such classic looks as the Ray-Ban Wayfarer well represented being so popular at the moment.

At The Sunglass Fix, we want to make sure that you are always ready for big events, such as the Kentucky Derby.  So if the day ever comes that you damage your sunglass lenses, we can help as we can ship new lenses anywhere in the world for free.

Hip-hop artist Nicki Minaj has certainly rocketed to stardom in recent years.  Her music career has included a nod by BET in 2010, as she won Best Hip-Hop Female at the BET Awards.  But Minaj’s life has not always been easy.  She was born in Trinidad and Tobago and moved to the New York City when she was five.  Her father was a violent drug addict that at one point attempted to kill the family.  Yet, Minaj overcame early problems in life, attended the famous La Guardia High School of Art and Music, and her career blossomed after being introduced to rapper Lil Wayne.

15 April 2013 - Designer Sunglasses Are Worth The Investment

When it comes to buying sunglasses, the only real way to go is to choose designer sunglasses. Here is why: designer sunglasses don’t use low quality plastic and other materials and the lenses are designed to international standards that provide optimal protection for eyes. Cheap eyewear doesn’t care about giving you superior optics and can actually damage your eyes without the proper UV protection. Quality eyewear means opting for designer eyewear.

Inexpensive sunglasses won’t give you great quality sunglass lenses. Polarized lenses are worth spending extra money to get. What are polarized sunglasses? Polarized lenses are remarkably effective at cutting down on glare and bright light and gives superior eye comfort when outdoors. This, of course, makes them an absolute must have when you need to have excellent vision.

We specialize in providing you with quick yet high quality sunglass lenses replacements, including polarized lenses. These lenses can be shipped for free anywhere in the world, meaning that the next time you damage your sunglass lenses you don’t have to buy new and expensive designer sunglasses. Instead you can turn to us and save money, trouble and a good deal of time!

 

 


14 April 2013 - How Sunglass Manufacturers Make a Difference To The Lives of Others

Giving back to the world has never been more important!  Today there are so many important causes out there that it can be difficult for one to know where to begin.  But three sunglass manufacturers have found smart and helpful ways to give back in style.

Panda Sunglasses is helping in a big way, thanks to their work with the TOMA Foundation.  Every time you buy a pair of Panda Sunglasses, they help the TOMA Foundation give a pair of free glasses or medical care to someone in need.

Another sunglass manufacturer that is giving back is Wild Soul through their Wild Soul Elephant Ivory Sunglasses.  Just buy a pair of these great sunglasses, and they’ll donate five dollars to the charity you choose.

A third manufacturer giving back to the community is Kenny Chesney and Costa.  Kenny Chesney expanded their line of Costa sunglasses with five limited edition options.  When you buy one, a percentage of the sale goes to the Coastal Conservation Association which works to restore the American coastline.

We at The Sunglass Fix can help save tons of sunglasses go to landfill every year by helping our customers recycle their sunglasses and replacing the lenses in sunglasses, and we save you money too!

2 April 2013 - Do Children Really Need to Wear Sunglasses?

The first few years of life are critically important for the long term health of any child. This applies to your child’s vision as well!

Cheap fashion sunglasses that may be cute or trendy are bad news for any pair of eyes, but they can be particularly dangerous for young ones.  This is why you should select sunglasses and sunglasses lenses that are high-quality.  Experts have found that sunglasses do more than protect developing eyes from damage that can later lead to cataracts and macular degeneration.  Sunglasses and sunglass lenses can help protect the delicate areas around the eyes and this means a reduction in skin cancer risk.

Top manufacturers such as Arnette, Ray-Ban, Smith and Oakley all have very stylish sunglass options for children that provide sunglass lenses which protect against UV rays.  There are also many specialist childrens sunglass brands that can be found with a quick internet search.

 

 

Spending money on children's sunglasses can seem over the top but you can also protect your investment in sunglasses if they become scratched or damaged by having us replace your lenses.  This can save you big both in terms of time and money making them a very worthy investment.You can also easily heat the arms of your child's sunglasses in some very hot water (not boiling) to make them soft and pliable so you can make them fit a growing childs head.


2 April 2013 - Prince Charles Showing his Style in Timeless Wayfarer Style Sunglasses

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.
