You already own a pair of prescription eyeglasses — perhaps strictly for reading, for everyday wear to see your surroundings, or as bifocals to get the detail you need close up and for faraway distances. Yet, driving, exploring or participating in an outdoor activity when the sun is beaming down isn’t exactly ideal. You contend with the bright light of the sun, its glare and, into the evening, dithering artificial lights.
However, you’re not fully sold on a pair of prescription sunglasses, either for driving or to block the sun. As a convenient and affordable solution, fit overs — sunglasses that go over glasses — deliver the view and protection you seek without the cost of having to invest in another pair of prescription frames.
We take things a step further, finding inspiration in the landscapes and cityscapes of Italy and equipping our fit overs for day and night use.
Why Wear Fit Over Sunglasses
Why have a pair of fit overs ready to place over your prescription eyeglasses, readers or bifocals?
They’re convenient: With fit overs on hand, you don’t need to switch between pairs as you’re out on the road, about to hike or get in some sightseeing. Instead, the two work together. Fit overs glide over your prescription eyeglasses. The two parts fit securely together without creating a bulky or uncomfortable sensation.
Extra protection: Chances are, your prescription eyeglasses don’t block out UV rays or reduce glare. Our fit overs are built to do this and then some. Lenses protect your eyes from UVA and UVB rays while cutting down on glare and scattering blue light in the process. This improves your field of vision during the day and, depending on the lens, can handle artificial light once the sun goes down. Especially for older adults, repeat sun exposure can damage your eyes’ tissues, corneas and retinas, resulting in cataracts or macular degeneration developing. This is true in summer and remains when the sun reflects off the snow in winter. Thus, your fit overs are needed throughout the year.
Economical: Not everyone has the funds to purchase a pair of prescription sunglasses. Yet, that doesn’t mean you have to live with glare and UV exposure. Fit over sunglasses present a more price-conscious solution, protecting your eyes without the investment required to purchase a separate pair of prescription lenses.
Improved Safety: Fit overs offer a second level of protection for your eyes with a durable frame and impact-resistant, shatterproof lenses — essential if you’re going to be participating in more demanding outdoor pursuits.
How to Select Fit Over Sunglasses
How do you know your fit overs will work with your prescription eyeglasses? Before making a purchase, measure the width and height of your prescription pair in millimeters. Then, seek out fit overs that are just slightly larger and with a similar style — round lenses with round lenses or a square frame with a square frame.
Further consider when you’ll be wearing your fit overs with your glasses. Are they just for driving — or will you be playing sports in them? Are you mainly looking to reduce the glare present during daytime driving, or do you need them to block blue light as you’re out at night?
