National Sunglasses Day- Show Me Your Shades

Hello, Darlings!

Today is National Sunglasses Day! Sunglasses are not only for a fashion statement but for protection from the sun’s harmful rays.  Technology has taken sunglasses to a whole new level.  With the invention of the polarized lens, sunglasses now can help you see better.  I wear my polarized sunglasses on the tennis courts to help me see the tennis ball better, on cloudy days, and most of all on rainy days when driving. My favorite brand of sunglasses is Maui Jim’s

These were the first pair of Maui Jim sunglasses I owned.  The Ho’okipa has been my FAVORITE for years for playing tennis.  I own the brown-tinted shades and they make that little yellow tennis ball just POP. So much easier to focus on the ball.  Matter a fact, everything looks more in focus.  They have a polycarbonate lens that is optically correct for crisp optics.  The lens has a coating to prevent scratches.   Most of all, they are rimless and the nose piece and ear pieces are made to fit for comfort so they are PERFECT for tennis and other sports. Love to wear your lens to the beach, these lenses are saltwater safe.
