Winter is here and it’s time for fun in the snow. When buying ski goggles for you ski trip or snowboarding look for lenses in the vermillion color. Yes, real adventures wear Pink!

Why is Vermillion the number one choice for skiers? Why choose a vermillion lenses instead of the more common grey types on the market? The Vermillion lenses actually enhance contrast, increasing depth perception by filtering haze and reducing glare, making them a perfect choice for snow activities. Â So don’t delay, get your goggles today!…

It is a great time to get all of your winter gear ready for skiing, snow boarding, traveling and etc. I am sure that each and every one of us needs at least on pair of ski goggles. That is of course if you are a skier. :)

They are Bolle Simmer Ski goggles form the new Bolle goggle collection this year. I have had Bolle goggles before and I love them for not fogging up when I am skiing down the hill.

Optics Planet works closely with military and law enforcement personnel. Many of them buy goggles needed for work. They definitely need goggles that will protect their eyes, no matter what happens on the field. We have many different brands of tactical goggles available. You will ask why not buy any other goggles. Tactical goggles come with ballistic lenses. These lenses are great for protecting the eyes especially if you have a bullet flying into you or a bomb that can blow up any minute. We have a few brands that specialize in tactical goggles. Wiley X is one of them. We had many customers who bought Wiley X goggles from us. They, later on, send us pictures of them showing that if it wasn’t for the goggles they would be blind.

We also have ESS goggles which have a special line of goggles made for firefighters. They come with a special lens coating to protect the eyes in case of a fire. ESS has developed one of the best protective eyewear that delivers peak performance in extreme situations!ESS Goggles

I strongly recommend buying tactical goggles if you use them for military, motorcycle riding, or shooting. Regular goggles will not save …

Rec Specs Shark Prescription Swim GogglesWith summer time upon us I would like to take the time to stress in my sunglasses blog how important swimming goggles are while we’re underwater. Whether you are in a lake, the ocean, or the local pool it is always important to keep your eyes safe. Not only are swimming goggles helpful when thinking about eye safety but they’re fun also. In a lake or the ocean there can be harmful particles in the water that can get into our eyes.

Algae, little sticks, and bacteria are just a few of the things that may harm our eyes. In the local pool the chlorine is very bad for the eyes. It dries out our eyes and could cause damage long term. So this summer please be safe and have a blast using our prescription swimming goggles underwater!!!…

I love motorcycle riding and even though I am afraid to learn to ride myself I am a professional back seat rider. :) Motorcycle season is coming very soon and I think that all bikers need to start thinking on what sunglasses they will wear this summer. You know how it usually happens! You put a pair of regular sunglasses on thinking that it should protect and cover your eyes; however it really does not protect your eyes from anything. Motorcycle glasses need to cover your eyes from any wind or dust. I am sure that all of you will agree with me that it is very unpleasant to ride a bike and feel that you are crying and your tears are crawling around your face. It is very uncomfortable and dangerous. However, if you have the right pair of eyewear you will never have that happen.

Sunglasses like Wiley X or Bobster will not only protect your eyes from wind but also protect them from any rocks or flies flying into your eyes. Wiley X sunglasses and Bobster sunglasses come with polycarbonate lenses which will never break in pieces. Awesome, isn’t it? Both brands have a foam gasket on the …

 I think many sunglasses brands should not put a huge logo on a pair of sunglasses. The logo is just too much especially for business people. If you like to look classy but at the same time modern and professional, I definitely recommend Serengeti sunglasses Serengeti Lamone sunglasses or Serengeti Vialone sunglasses are definitely some of the nicest pair on the market. I especially recommend them for men. They are sleek and fashionable. No need to worry about the size of face that you have either. They are wide yet narrow, comfortable yet fitting. You would never know what brand they are unless you come up to someone wearing them closely. The logo is small and very simple. It is what the sunglasses have to offer that is important and nothing compares to Serengeti lens technology.…

Wiley X is one of the most popular military eyewear brands and a lot of people who need vision correction are looking for Wiley X prescription sunglasses and Wiley X prescription goggles.

Wiley X Rx glasses are not only strongly demanded by military, they are also pretty popular with sportsmen and bikers. In addition to single vision Rx lenses and bifocals, no-line progressive lenses used to be available for Wiley X frames. But some patients used to have problems adjusting to the progressive lenses. We still make Wiley X progressive prescription sunglasses. But it is more case by case basis now. It mainly depends on the prescription. Wiley X makes great products and I would strongly recommend everyone to take a look at their great prescription sunglasses collection. However, there is another brand that is very popular for military and law enforcement called ESS. ESS prescription sunglasses are available with both lined and no-line bifocal lenses. So if no-line bifocal lenses is a must for you take a look at ESS prescription eyewear.…

Ski season is here. Ready? Don’t forget to grab your snow gear and let’s rock it!

Ski GogglesSki Goggles will protect your eyes from wind and debris. In addition, the lenses will cut glare and haze coming from the shiny snow surface, and block harmful UV rays. I would recommend double lenses as they provide a thermal barrier that prevents the lenses from fogging.

Top three best-selling ski goggles:

Bolle Ski Goggles

Spy Ski Goggles

Julbo Ski Goggles

Julbo Explorer Ski Sunglasses/GogglesSki Sunglasses – For those who do not like mask-type-of-eyewear, eyewear manufactures introduced ski sunglasses. Some models come in a package with an elastic strap that can be attached to the sunglass temples. Wearing the sunglasses with a strap, you can be sure that the sunglasses will stay on your face and do not fall off while you enjoy skiing. I would also recommend you to get sunglasses with a foam seal or a gasket. It will provide you with comfort and an additional protection from the wind.
