A great pair of sunglasses can look so cool that it’s easy to forget their primary purpose: To protect your eyes from the sun.

In its wraparound-design Jaysor sunglasses, Adidas hasn’t “lost sight” of form OR function. The glasses are as attractive as they are protective.

That’s why we are delighted to be able to offer one lucky reader of GettingOnTravel a pair of Adidas Jaysor Sport Essentials sunglasses!

Since this particular pair of Adidas sunglasses is typically for men (although they might easily be worn by women, too), I asked my husband to “try them on for size.”

“These are the clearest lenses I’ve ever had in a pair of sunglasses,” he quickly responded.

To hear that from someone usually reluctant to put on a pair of sunglasses—even on a sunny day on the water—was a big surprise. He said the glasses were extremely comfortable and that his visual acuity wearing them (post-cataract surgery) was perfect.

Some of the other things we liked about them:

  • They offer 100% UV protection from sun glare (We tested them out on a bright sunny day and felt no need to squint—goodbye (even more) wrinkles!)
  • They offer distortion free vision and an extensive curvature to provide an unhindered field of vision.
  • They come in a soft protective pouch that can be used to keep them clean.
  • Made from a shatterproof SPX frame material, they’re extremely lightweight with a traction grip inside the temples that keeps them in place.
  • The nose pads sit uber-comfortably on the bridge of the nose.
  • If you need prescription lens, the sunglasses are Rx-able. Your optometrist can swap out the lenses.
  • The polycarbonate lenses are attention grabbing. The mirrored cool red color makes a youthful fashion statement.
  • The quick-release hinge system is forgiving for those who tend to be hard on their glasses.
  • They’re durable, made for active wear whether on land or sea—perfect for frequent travelers. They’re also protective wearer’s eyes from dirt, rain or wind.

Need a bit more convincing, like my husband did?

According to the NIH, some of the adverse effects of sun on the eyes can include:

  • Exacerbation of cataracts that cause blurring (It is estimated that 20% of cataract cases are caused by extended UV exposure.)
  • Macular degeneration that damages the retina and destroys central vision (the leading cause of blindness in the U.S.).
  • Pterygium, a tissue growth over the white part of the eye that can alter its curvature (causing an astigmatism).
