Clip-on or magnetic sunglasses from top designer brands like Maui Jim and Carrera combine prescription eyeglasses and prescription sunglasses into one pair, eliminating the need to keep up with two pairs of glasses. The thin, clip-on lens fits easily inside a pocket or purse and will attach to your prescription frames as needed. And many of our clip-on and magnetic sunglasses come with polarized lenses, which provide protection from harmful and distracting glare.
For activities that require clear vision and accurate depth perception, including driving, fishing, and playing competitive sports, choosing the best clip-on sunglasses is essential to performing your best. Our selection of designer clip-on sunglasses showcases the quality and craftsmanship you'd expect from top makers, including EasyClip, Takumi, Flexon Magnetics, and others, in an array of stylish, durable frames. Discover eyeglasses with clip-on or magnetic sunglasses in the styles you love.
Clip-on sunglasses are both safe for your eyes and your lenses. Since they are UV protective, they will block the sun's rays from hitting your eyes, while keeping you from having to squint in the sun. Also, most clip-on lenses will not scratch eyeglasses if the clip-on is specifically tailored to the frames. Many brands, including Takumi and EasyClip, use ultra-strong magnets to bind the clip-on lens to the frames, to avoid breakage and scratching. Off-market clip-on lenses that do not come fitted to a pair of eyeglasses can cause an imperfect union between the two. This can lead to breakage or damage to standard eyeglass lenses. At FramesDirect.com, we sell glasses with specifically tailored clip-on lenses so that the two pairs of frames work seamlessly together every time.
Some clip-on sunglass lenses use clips to hold the tinted lenses to your eyeglasses, while others use magnets. If your clip-ons have small latches or clips, simply arrange the tinted lenses on the front of your eyeglasses, facing out, with the clips on the top, back side of the frame. Push the clips down onto the frame to affix the tinted lenses to your eyeglasses. To remove them, pull up on the tinted lenses.
To affix magnetic clip-on sunglasses, simply align the magnets on the tinted lenses with the magnets on the frames of your eyeglasses and they should click into place. Then, pull up and away to remove your magnetic clip-on lenses. It should be noted that magnetic clip-on lenses require compatible frames which also have magnets.
Clip-on sunglasses use the same frame measurements as regular glasses, which makes them very easy to measure. If you already have a pair of glasses at home that fit well, look on the inside of the temple for three numbers usually separated by dashes. These numbers represent the three common frame measurements: eye size, bridge width, and temple length. If you’re looking to purchase clip-on sunglasses and eyeglasses together, use all three measurements to order them. If you’re looking to purchase only clip-on sunglasses for an existing pair of eyeglasses, you’ll just need to know eye size and bridge width.
