Earlier this year I discovered the joy of prescription sunglasses. Being short-sighted means that I would normally have to wear contact lenses or else deal with not seeing the world quite so clearly whenever I wore a pair of sunglasses. However, with the amazing range of prescription sunnies available on Perfectglasses.co.uk this has all changed!
Up until a couple of years ago, the only style of sunglasses I would ever consider wearing is an aviator style – and I do still love my pair of classic Ray-Ban 3044 aviators. However, as I wear my sunglasses on pretty much an everyday basis (yes, even when it’s cloudy), I wanted to venture out from my usual style and try out a few different options to mix things up a bit.
Over the last year or so there have been quite a few different styles of sunglasses that caught my eye (pun intended) – and one of the styles which has stood out to me the most is the classic, laid-back looking round style. This is not a style that I would have even considered wearing up until a couple of years ago as I thought I wouldn’t be able to pull off the style, however I’m so glad I gave it a go as I absolutely love it!
The pair I am wearing in this post is the Polaroid PLD 6010 – a classic pair of round sunnies with an unexpected blue frame which I love! This pair of sunglasses was available on the Perfectglasses.co.uk website with either a prescription or non-prescription lens – of course I went for the prescription lens option.
Designing your pair of prescription sunglasses on the website is a really easy and enjoyable process! After you have selected your favourite frames, the website gives you a number of options to customise your perfect sunglasses. The website gives you the option to choose from standard lenses or premium lenses which offer an anti-reflective coating and super important UV protection (which I would 100% recommend), to even more advanced lenses that are thinner and feel lighter when worn. Once you have chosen your preferred lens type, the website gives you the option to choose what kind of tint you would like – whether that is light, medium, dark or gradient, in blue, green, brown, yellow, red, grey or polarised. I went for the standard premium lenses with a dark green tint which block 80% of the light – perfect for sunny summer days!
After you have customised your glasses, all you need to do is insert your prescription details and the company will take care of the rest.
Shipping from Perfectglasses.co.uk is pretty quick and the sunglasses come well packaged and protected. The website also has a fantastic range of women’s glasses and designer sunglasses, all at pretty incredible prices, and with their no quibbles return policy, it’s a great opportunity to get your first pair of glasses online even if you’ve never done it before!
