Solar Shield has been the leader in polarized sunglasses since 1979 and the leading brand doctors recommend to their patients. Solar Shield wants to provide you a shield that is chic, modern and trendy. Solar Shield are designed to fit over your regular glasses so that you can still wear your glasses but protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays.
Solar Shield come in many varieties such as fashion, classic, sport, panorama and designer. In addition, Solar Shield has clip-on’s as well. Protecting your eyes from the sun is extremely important and finding a pair of sunglasses that block 100% UV rays can be a challenge. I do not wear prescription glasses but I did test these out wearing them like traditional sunglasses. I found the Solar Shield to be very comfortable and loved how it reduced the glare from the sun. The only difference between these and traditional sunglasses is that these are designed to fit over prescription glasses. The top and bottom of the frames are thicker however; no one would ever know that you do not have prescription glasses under them.
How many times have you been driving down the road and the sun is glaring so brightly that you can barely see in front of you? I have so many times and the visor usually does not help. It is paramount that you can see clearly while driving and you now can with Solar Shield polarized sunglasses as they reduce the glare and provide clearer vision.
Many times you may get a pair of sunglasses and notice that the frame does not block the sun from reaching your eyes from the side of the sunglasses, which means you are being exposed to harmful UV rays. With Solar Shields Advanced UV protection technology and wraparound frames, it prevents the majority of untreated light from reaching your eyes since the frames feature top, peripheral and underside protection.
