Clip-on glasses are available in a variety of tints, styles and dimensions, coupled with the option for different UV protection and lens coatings. The two darkened lenses, connected by a bridge for your nose, attach to your usual prescription eyeglasses with clips or magnets rather than whole frames.
Glasses with clip-on sunglasses are just as good as "real" sunglasses if they fit properly — that is, if they are the same size and shape as your regular glasses.
Magnetic clip-on glasses have a design to suit any frame using magnetic lens stacking technology. They simply utilize a small magnetic component that fits your existing frames, which allows you to place your clip-on glasses over your prescription and easily change the lenses.
Clip-on glasses have small magnets that do not cause harm while worn. There are no reports of any detrimental health effects from the magnets used in clip-on glasses, so you can feel safe while enjoying the practicality of these clever sunglasses alternatives. There have even been some stories about the benefits of wearing a magnet on a piece of jewellery!
Measure across the front of one of your prescription lenses with a tape measure to determine the size of the clip-on glasses you need. Make sure the clip-on glasses size you choose is at least as big as your lens measurement. Otherwise, they won't provide enough protection for your eyes.
