What are clip-on sunglasses?

Like regular sunglasses, clip-on sunglasses protect your eyes from UV rays.

Clip-on sunglasses come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes with varying degrees of UV protection and special coatings. However, the two dark lenses are not full rims, but are joined together by the bridge of the nose and attached to your regular prescription glasses with clips or magnets.

Which is better? Clip-on sunglasses or prescription sunglasses?

The better option for you will depend on your needs and preferences.

If you want to be able to wear the same pair of glasses for long time -- especially if your eyes are hard to adjust as you switch back and forth -- or if you already own your favorite glasses and don't have the budget for an extra pair of prescription sunglasses, clips may be more for you.

If you prefer "purposeful pieces" -- glasses on the inside, sunglasses on the outside -- or don't like the sometimes clumsy look of clip-on glasses, consider prescription sunglasses.

Do clip-on sunglasses work?

Yes, clip-on glasses work just as well as "real" sunglasses, as long as they fit - i.e. they are the same or similar size and shape as regular glasses - and provide UV protection for your eyes - preferably max UV 400.
