An Affordable Alternative to Prescription Sunglasses

Did you know that between 80-90% of adults who purchase eyeglasses don’t purchase sun-protection? Do we want to improve our vision but not protect it? Doubtful.  The reality is that prescription eyeglasses are not cheap. They can set us back between $100-400 easily.  Most people would not consider adding the high cost of prescription sunglasses on to their eyeglass purchase.

And who wants to spend $200-300 on prescription sunglasses only to have your eye doctor tell you that your prescription has changed 8 months later? Our prescriptions change subtly over time and adults over 40 should expect to see changes in their prescription every year.

Luckily there is an alternative to prescription sunglasses – fits overs! Sunglasses that fit over eyeglasses, commonly known as ‘fits overs’ or ‘fitovers’ have been around for decades and for good reason. They are an affordable and convenient alternative to expensive prescription sunglasses. Over-the-glass sunglasses are specifically designed to slip right over eyeglasses.
