Cheap Sunglasses

Did you know Cheap Sunglasses actually cost you more in the long-run? And no, I'm not just talking about your wallet/pocketbook.

Jeff Tyson wrote a great article on HowStuffWorks.com entitled "How Sunglasses Work". In it he explains the four things a GOOD pair of sunglasses should do for you:
  1. Sunglasses provide protection from ultraviolet rays in sunlight
  2. Sunglasses provide protection from intense light
  3. Sunglasses provide protection from glare
  4. Sunglasses eliminate specific frequencies of light
Jeff states that "when you buy a cheap pair of sunglasses, you often give up all of those benefits and can even make things worse." Check out the rest of this article, and when you're ready, stop by one of our locations in Atlanta or purchase a good, quality pair of sunglasses online from SunglassWarehouse.net. Your eyes will thank you!

Sunglass SOS

Yesterday upon leaving work, I put on my trusty sunglasses that I keep in the car knowing they'll probably get a little banged up but are perfect for driving around town. Once on, I noticed the right lens seemed a little smudged, so at the next red light, I tried to clean them off repeatedly with no luck. After further inspection, I noticed the smudges were in fact about 8 tiny scratches and were certainly not coming off no matter how much I huffed and buffed.

This made me very sad as this particular pair of sunglasses is one of my favorite pairs of Oakley sunglasses ever owned and I had two choices:
  1. To continue wearing them and ignore the little smudge-like scratches
  2. To send them to the graveyard of sunglasses past (May they Rest in Peace)
As the depressing music began to sound in my head, it hit me... OPTION C! I can replace the lenses and still keep my favorite pair of sunglasses! There was no need for straining to see through the scratches or tossing them our with yesterday's dinner. HORRAY! My Oakleys would see the light of day again!

This may sound like a tall-tale, but I assure you, simply replacing the lenses is a great way to restore those old-faithfuls you keep lying around in your car or gym bag. Don't believe me? Check the lenses out for yourself!

It is best to clean and wash your sunglasses on a daily basis. Dish washing soap removes body oil on the lenses, nosepads, hinges and screws. Ever notice how your nosepads turn an ugly greenish hue? This is caused by chronic build up of body oil. Similarly body oil in the screws & hinges loosens them.

Golf Season is upon us!

With golf tournaments heating up just like the weather, every golfer weather for sport or fun is dusting off the polo shirts and khakis and hitting the course.

There's one item most people don't think to consider when out on the range or golf course: Sunglasses. Most golfers remember to wear their hats, as hats help shield heads, ears, and faces from the sun. However, they don't offer optimal protection for your eyes.

Sunglass Warehouse offers some great brands and styles that will be light on your face while protecting your eyes from the sun. A few of our favorites include: Oakleys, Costa Del Mar, and Ray Ban.

Sunglasses at Night: The Origination?

I just stumbled upon this video on YouTube released in 1984, and I hate to say it but everyone who thought they were starting a new trend the past few years were about 25 years too late. Not only did Corey Hart make wearing "Sunglasses at Night" a hot trend but he also made Wayfarers cool. See below for evidential proof:
