Wraparound sunglasses and eyeglasses typically showcase a sporty look: These frames curve around the head to create a wider field of vision and improved fit. Athletes who rely on their peripheral vision for optimal performance often prefer this style. Explore wraparound glasses frames in non-prescription and prescription-ready styles.
Wraparound glasses closely contour your features with a curved lens that provides full coverage for your eyes, the skin around them, and your periphery vision. Wraparound eyeglasses and sunglasses are most often favored by athletes and outdoor enthusiasts who require an extra level of protection from the sun and the elements. While they are generally rectangular in shape, square and round silhouettes with shield-style or standard lenses are common designs for wraparound frames. Brands like Oakley and Wiley X have perfected athletic wrap-style frames that stay put, even when you’re at your most active.
