Sun Clips

It can be annoying having to carry around regular prescription eyeglasses along with sunglasses. The solution for many people who want to protect their eyes from the sun is to invest in a pair of sun clips.

What are sun clips?

Sun clips are sunglasses that are designed to clip over prescription eyeglasses. Clip-on sunglasses are ideal for people who want their regular eyeglasses to also function as sunglasses. They protect eyes from the sun and are easy to use and store.

How do sun clips work?

Sun clips are tinted sunglass frames without temples featuring cushioned tabs that are designed to clip onto the front of eyeglasses. Some sun clips actually utilize magnets to hold the frames to eyeglasses rather than traditional clips. Both types of sun clips are easy to use; they simply clip onto the sides of regular eyeglasses and can be lifted off and stored when no longer needed.

Why choose sun clips?

Sun clips are a great option for people who wear prescription lenses and are looking for a way to protect their eyes from the sun. Clip-on sunglasses offer great flexibility for those who do not want to invest in two separate pairs of prescription glasses. Not only are clip-on sunglasses more affordable than prescription sunglasses, they can even be polarized for enhanced comfort.

Benefits of sun clips

Here are just a few of the benefits of sun clips: 

  • They are an affordable alternative to prescription sunglasses. 
  • They clip on and off easily, usually with one hand. 
  • They come in a variety of tints. 
  • They protect against harmful UV rays.
  • Problems associated with sun clips

Sun clips are valued for their convenience and affordability, but there are some sacrifices that come with choosing clip on sunglasses over prescription sunglasses. Many people consider sun clips an outdated style. Since the size of the clips has to match up with the shape of the regular eyeglasses they are being clipped on, there is little flexibility when it comes to choosing styles and shapes.

It is also important to keep in mind that sun clips add more weight to the nose and face. People who are used to lightweight eyewear may have a hard time adjusting to the weight of sun clip lenses.
