Our company annual picnic was last Sunday. We had many of our vendors visiting us that day. Our representative from Wiley X lab was visiting and she gave us a small training on all the Wiley X sunglasses.

If you are looking for smaller frame sunglasses, then I would definitely recommend Wiley X XL-1 sunglasses. They are very petite and will fit men and women who are looking for smaller sunglasses. If you are looking for a larger frame, then you should definitely try Wiley X SG-1 sunglasses. We got to play with all of these frames and it is amazing what they can do. You can, pretty much, bend the frame in any way and it will not break, it will not even bend. They are very flexible and very comfortable to wear. Not only that you will feel great when wearing Wiley X, but they will also protect you from all the dust and wind.

When it comes to ordering Wiley X prescription sunglasses, you have to keep in mind that higher prescriptions will not work in most of the frames due to a frame curve. However, Wiley X SG-1 sunglasses will take higher prescription.…

Happy 4th of JulyThis year’s 4th of July happens to be on Saturday. I am not sure if some of you will have Friday off since Saturday is a weekend. However, I am sure that it will be sunny and that most people will spend their whole day outside celebrating. It will be very sunny and uncomfortable for your eyes to be outside the whole day. This is a perfect time to buy sunglasses if you still don’t have any and still receive them on time for the holiday.

I want to introduce the most popular sunglasses that are always in stock and ready to ship to you at any time. Serengeti Aviator sunglasses have been popular for a long time and still are!! You will not go wrong with aviator style sunglasses.

Another great pair to consider is Ray Ban RB4091 sunglasses which are very shick and cool looking for this season.

And, don’t forget about Bolle Parole sunglasses which are great for sports and every day activities. The lenses are very durable and you will not have to worry about dropping the glasses and breaking the lens.

Happy 4th of July and remember not to drink and drive!! :)

Bolle has always been known as a manufacturer of outstanding sports sunglasses. But should the great fashion-forward style be sacrificed to outstanding optics, performance and safety? Of course, NOT! And Bolle proves it with their new 2009 sunglasses collection and offers a great combination of state of the art optics, lightweight frames and unique styles.

 A few years ago Bole introduced some bold designs like Bolle Belmont, Bolle Tease that were specifically tailored for women. The frames follow the latest fashion trends and are slightly oversized offering classy and sophisticated look. These sunglasses have been so successful, that this season Bolle decided to add a few more styles to the women’s collection including Bolle Ruby and Bolle Queen glasses.

Visit OpticsPlanet’s collection of Bolle sunglasses for the latest models. OpticsPlanet is an authorized Bolle dealer and sells only authentic Bolle eyeglasses, sunglasses, and goggles.

One of my co-workers came up to me today and told me about a customer who called her to ask about sunglasses. This is pretty interesting!Â

It is Monday and it is very busy. She gets a call from a customer who needs help choosing a pair of sunglasses for his vacation. So she is trying to find a great pair of sunglasses that are popular and will look good on him. Then he proceeds to ask her this insane question. He goes, “Would there be any sort of chance that I could see people having sex on the beach with any particular sunglass?” What is that all about? She didn’t even know that they made sunglasses for that! Is it like a high tech version of night vision but “cool style?” Funny, huh? I think so too. So after sitting on the phone with him for about 15 minutes, she was able to find him a pair of great sunglasses. NOT the kinds that he wanted, but the kind that she thought he would be able to enjoy and still feel good in. The glasses he ordered were Julbo Race sunglasses. Julbo sunglasses are very popular nowadays. You …

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 …

Great News!! It is official spring time and the weather is getting better day by day. Fishing season is about to become aggressive and its time to start gathering all the needed gear together. I think that people should know what the best way is to protect their eyes while on water is. It is strongly recommended to have polarized sunglasses when fishing. It takes the glare away from water and helps you see fish better. You can even see fish under water with polarized lenses. A couple of recommended styles are: Ray Ban RB2140 Wayfarer sunglasses, Serengeti Roggia sunglasses, Bolle Anaconda sunglasses, or Serengeti Vedi sunglasses. However, this does not conclude our polarized sunglasses collection. Keep in mind that we can make a pair of polarized prescription sunglasses if you wear glasses.…

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.

Bolle Kickflip sunglasses are so lightweight – you won’t even fill them on your face! Bolle Kickflip sunglasses The frames are made of nylon that is extremely strong but lightweight and flexible at the same time. The Bolle polycarbonate lenses will protect you more than just from the sun. Polycarbonate is the most shatter-resistant lens material available in the industry. It’s 20 times more shatter resistant and lighter than glass, which makes this sunglasses perfect for any sports activity.

My favorite Kickflip model is Bolle 10550. It comes with modulator polarized gray lenses. Gray is a good all-purpose lens that works for any sports activity. Modulator stands for photochromic. Photochromic lenses adjust to different light conditions darkening under direct sunlight. Polarization helps to cut the annoying glare. And finally, gray color is neutral, so you can wear the same eyewear as a sun protection when you are jogging in the morning and as a fashion accessory when you going out on a sunny day.…
