Gifts For Mom: Sunnies, the better to see with!

This post is brought to you by Glasses Direct.

As someone who doesn’t regularly wear glasses except to reduce eye strain, I can go out and get any kind of sunglasses I prefer. But if you need glasses to see while driving, then your choices might be limited. Those clip-ons don’t look so appealing to me, because maybe they’d fall off? Or not fit well over your regular glasses? Instead of hassling with that, get some fashionable sunnies with prescription Ienses instead! (Makes a
great Mother’s Day gift!)

I asked my sister-in-law, who wears prescription glasses regularly, to review a pair of prescription sunglasses (sent free for review from Glasses Direct). She was excited to shop their online store of women’s glasses to find a pair she liked. Although Gasses Direct does have a whole section of prescription sunglasses for fashion wear (500+ styles!), they also allow you to tint ANY of their lenses to various degrees, so you can really turn any pair of glasses into sunglasses!

My SIL picked out the Saturn frames in tortoise. The fit was great, and check out the stylish detailing! Very classic!

She told me how pleasantly surprised she was that they fit right even though she hadn’t gotten to try them on in a store. (TIP: she measured her regular glasses and picked a pair that had similar width measurement online!). I told her she could shop without worry, because Glasses Direct has a “try before you buy” Free Home Trial program, with free returns within 14 days. If your first selection doesn’t suit you, return for a different pair or refund. Their shipping is über-speedy, so you’ll get a new pair in no time!

My son loved trying to take these sunglasses off to play with! Good thing he didn’t succeed because my SIL needs them for driving! She says the prescription was filled perfectly and she can see great with these glasses. Now she will not only have good vision on the road, but also reduced glare and squinting from the sunshine!

I bought my last pair at Sam's club I think.
