So Many Solar Shield ‘Fits over’ sunglasses and Clip-on Styles -There’s One for You!


Did you know 3 out of 4 adults wear glasses of some sort? Thankfully, Solar Shield brand has one of the most extensive lines of fits over sunglasses and clipons in the industry. Many people can think of only the large goggle-type fitovers of years past, but the reality is there are a myriad of styles in the market today.

In the fits over category, Solar Shield has 5 collections: classic, sport, panorama, fashion and designer.

Solar Shield Classics refers to fits overs with classic rectangular and round shapes, side windows and a top and bottom shield.


Sport fits overs have racier more tapered shapes, also have side windows and top and bottom shield. However, since these Solar Shields are meant for sport, the top shield has small vents so lenses don’t fog up during activity.



The Panorama Solar Shield fits overs have wraparound lenses that give them a modern sleek appearance. They also have a top and bottom shield for maximum sun protection.



You will find more feminine styles and smaller shapes among the Fashion Solar Shield fit overs. The fashion collection does not have side windows but most often, do have a top and bottom shield.



The Designer collection boasts beautiful embellishments, designer-inspired shapes and lacks a bottom shield for a wider fit range.
