What Are They?

Wrap Around Sunglasses: Are They Right For You?When we mention the words ‘wrap around’ we are referring to the style of the eyewear i.e. Aviator sunglasses, squared sunglasses. Similar to the shield style, the wrap-around style has been a major trend this season. The style has been seen on many people from all walks of life; from beach holiday travellers to the most extreme athletes on the planet.

Who Are They For?

If you are interested in wrap-around eyewear; your main reason could be for sports. A lot of sports professionals and athletes opt for this style because it provides them with the best level of comfort and fit. Another reasons may be that your head has a very small or large circumference.

Prescription lenses can be adapted into curved sunglasses however if you have a high prescription, you may have to compensate on the model you want. High prescription lenses may not be suitable for very curved frames.

How Do They Benefit Me?

Performance. Whatever you are doing, you need your eyewear to perform well and consistently. Curved sunglasses stay firmly in place no matter what you are doing which lets you concentrate on your tasks.

Comfort and fit. As the design of the frame is curved, it allows the eyewear to ‘hug’ the head. What this means is that your sunglasses won’t slip off your face as easily as standard sunglasses. Most brands add rubber frame arms or  temple tips to their frame designs for additional grip and support.

Wider field of vision. You will have experience peripheral vision with wrap-around frames. A curved frame that wraps around the head will always offer a wider field of vision.

If the frame does not have wide curved lenses, the wearer would experience blind spots with this frame design because the curved frame joints would be behind the eyes.

Aesthetics. There is something stunning about the shape and design of the style. The design sleek and streamlined, it also appeals to both men and women.
