Happy New Year! If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that simplifying life can greatly enhance it. We’ve learned to slow down (a bit) and take things in stride and not sweat the small stuff (so much). Often it’s the small stuff that causes the most stress in our daily lives. But, in our family, we understand that when life gets hectic, that’s the time to simplify our outlook.
Most of us wear prescription lenses and after plenty of instances of forgetting or breaking other Rx sun solutions, we looked for a way to effectively eliminate the need to remember, carry, or pack additional eyewear. Before now, the best options have been fit over sunglasses, cover-ups, flip-ups, transition style glasses, or prescription sunglasses, but none are that simple to use or affordable. Fitover sunglasses are bulky, awkward to position, and uncomfortable to layer on top of your everyday glasses.
Different ways to wear sunglasses
According to The Vision Council, surveys suggest that adult Americans are most likely to wear sunglasses while driving, spending time outdoors, watching or playing sports, and near a body of water. The problem for prescription eyeglass wearers has been remembering to pack a second pair of glasses for sun and glare protection. Let’s face it. Life is fast-paced and hectic and remembering the essentials is often easier said than done.
The Vision Council also shares that prolonged UVA and UVB exposure can lead to issues ranging from eye irritation and fatigue, difficulty with a vision to red, swollen eyes from sunburn. In rare cases, cancer can occur. The bottom line is it’s time to start viewing eyewear as more than a fashion statement and consider eye protection for what it is, an essential element of your overall health.
While flip-ups and clip-ons are more affordable than cover-ups, they are typically made of cheaper materials, they break and they don’t offer the best protection for your eyes. Prescription sunglasses or transition style lenses offer great sun protection, but both come with a hefty cost and just like fitovers, you still have to remember to pack them. For us, spontaneity is the secret ingredient to the best outdoor adventures, so none of these options met the standard we were looking for…So we created a new one.
Protect your outlook
EyKuver’s patent-pending film protects from glare and harmful UV rays and the ultra-thin design easily tucks into your pocket, purse, or wallet until you need it. It’s durable, disposable, and won’t damage or scratch your everyday RX lenses. What we love most, hands down, is the convenience. It’s fun to be able to instantly transform your everyday prescription eyewear into prescription sunglasses. Just peel, stick, and go. It’s that simple!
Stash them anywhere you foresee yourself needing sunglasses. We stash EyKuver in our cars, wallets, purses, backpacks, and jacket pockets, so we can stay focused on what’s most important: living a stress-free, active life.
Oh and you, 2020? It’s good to see you in the rearview mirror.
