Get the Right Fit: How to Measure for Fit-Over Sunglasses

As some of you may already know, fitover glasses are an excellent cost-effective option designed to fit prescription glasses and provide enhanced protection, typically from UV rays the sun produces. They are meant to fit comfortably and shouldn’t be too large or too small in any case. They shouldn’t disrupt your existing vision in any way, either. 

You should start measuring from the width and height of your existing glasses, as well as the distance between your temples. If you feel as if you’re in between sizes, go with the larger fit-over glasses. Keep in mind this is also an excellent way of having sunglasses that fit over prescription glasses as well as provide enhanced protection with how much they end up covering your eyes and face area. 

With a secure fit, these sunglasses that fit over glasses come in a variety of styles, designs, and levels of protection.

They also have a visible light transmission of 16%, helping to provide better contrast and thus improved vision. The lenses themselves are already treated with an anti-fog coating to ensure that there are no issues with the vision. 

Finally, to add a layer of protection, the G400H is actually rated as ANSI Z87.1 safety ratings against high velocity and high-impact projectiles. These frames come in a brown hazelnut color.
