Holiday Gift Guide Suggestion

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.

    I always wear sunglasses – having blue eyes my eyes are super sensitive and I really need UV Protection. Many people don't wear glasses and it is a big mistake.

    UV protection is so important. People don't realize that it is for their eyes as much as their skin.

  27. April says:

    Got to have sunglasses here in florida, the sun is so strong!! Always looking for options that will go voere my glasses and still look stylish!

  28. CrazyMom says:

    What a great review.. I have been looking for new shades for a few weeks; I have Lupus and my eyes are very light sensitive, I need them dark but hate that most of them are looking like granny glasses…. These look amazing and from what i can tell are fairly dark, perfect for me, soo will check them out.. Thanks for a great review

  29. Anita says:

    I have these, they are the best things ever. This past summer my son went with the air cadets to help with the Arlington airshow and I bought him a pair. He loved them too, plus he looked super cool!

  30. Karen says:

    That is so cool that they fit over your glasses, getting prescription glasses is so expensive and they dont look that awesome so this would be a good alternative

  31. cynthial1956 says:

    Having a great pair of sunglasses is so important. Yes, they are stylish, but more importantly, they protect your eyes. I wear regular glasses, so I couldn't use these, but my family members could.

  32. toughcookiemommy says:

    It's so important to shield our eyes from harmful UV rays. A lot of people are under the misconception that they only have to protect their skin from the sun.

  33. HilLesha says:

    Those are quite stylish!

    Protecting our eyes is just as important as protecting the skin, but I don't think many people realize this.

  34. mburbage says:

    Very stylish! I don't think people really thing about protecting their eyes all the time, it's really important!

  35. krystal kesson says:

    Nice glasses. Thanks for the giveaway!

  36. Dawn B says:

    Those look very nice and stylish. I am super sun sensitive and HAVE to wear sunglasses. Cloudy days are worse.

  37. springmount6pack says:

    I like those. I try hard to make sure we are always protecting our eyes.

  38. slapdashmom1 says:

    I'm moving to Arizona soon.. definitely going to need these! I don't think people realize how important protecting their eyes can be.

  39. StacieinAtlanta says:

    I am a fanatic about protecting my eyes in the sun. My entire family wears sunglasses religiously.

  40. Viccy Howe says:

    I have sensitive eyes so a pair of sunnies is crucual (and stops my squinting turning into wrinkles).
    Good luck to everyone entering the giveaway xx

  41. I would be happy to have one pair of these glasses, Advanced UV Protection would be great for my eyes. Good that we have companies like that caring about our eyes.

  42. deb c says:
