HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR FIT OVER SUNGLASSES?

Keeping your eyeglasses on and ensuring sun protection is not always easy! Fit over sunglasses (OTG) provide a solution to avoid spending on a pair of sunglasses with corrective lenses, usually more fragile.

SUNGLASSES CONCEPT

Product managers, engineers, laboratory staff: We gather all of our optics specialists together to design those sunglasses.

To fit over your eyeglasses, there are two types of OTG sunglasses: wear over sunglasses and clip-on ones.

WEAR-OVER SUNGLASSES

Slightly larger than your eyeglasses, wear over sunglasses fit over your prescription glasses.
They are standard sunglasses, but slightly bigger.

Just like an additional protective shell,  they should provide full UV protection (UVA and UVB). Exactly like a pair of sunglasses. Similarly, if you choose polycarbonate, lenses, they will be resistant to impacts.

Small hint: remember to check the size of your prescription glasses and the size of the wear over sunglasses to make sure they are compatible.

CLIP-ONs

Clip-ons are 2 sun protection lenses that fit over your corrective lenses. They are simply clipped onto the nose bridge of your prescription glasses.

This clip-on system is very convenient because you can flip up the sun lenses with a single action to switch from sun lenses to clear corrective lenses.

The lenses are similar to those of sunglasses: Full UV protection.

To make sure you are protected from glare, ensure that the corrective lenses are properly covered by the sun lenses.

Whether for wear over sunglasses or for clip-ons, choose polarised lenses to reduce sun reflections. A real bonus when doing sports... and for the pleasure of seeing clearly!
