It’s All in the Details

While expressing your style is part of the fun of choosing your next poolside frames, let’s look at some specifications that can bring your frames to the next level with eye protection and durability.

Polarized Lenses

Reflective surfaces such as water and snow are excellent at challenging light and glare towards your eyes. Polarized lenses have a special filter that only allows certain types of light to reach your eye. Therefore, polarized lenses are a great addition to your lens customization and will lead to reduced glare, enhanced clarity, and improved eye comfort.

Large Lens Size

For maximal protection, search for large or oversized lenses which will block scattered light rays in most directions. Yes, the small lenses may be trendy, but what are they really protecting?

High Quality Metals or Plastics

In general, we don’t recommend going into the pool with your nice frames because the harsh chemicals from the pool such as chlorine can lead to crazing of lenses and rusting of metals. Choosing high quality materials can help combat this, but not fully. If you do end up going into the pool, remember to rinse your frames with neutral water and wipe dry soon after.
