Best Men’s Tennis Sunglasses Video Overview

Join our very own Eyeglass Tyler as he showcases the features of each of this year’s best men’s tennis sunglasses.

What to Look for in Tennis Sunglasses

Our expert Sports Opticians carefully selected each pair of tennis sunglasses in this lineup with your eyes in mind. Below are the essential frame and lens benefits that went into our “top five” decision — so you know that your purchase will help you serve and return with ultimate precision and comfort.

Frame Durability
Frames built from strong materials such as acetate or plastic will last long — withstanding wear and tear, and the occasional drop.

Lens Technology
Lenses with contrast-enhancing features will improve game performance by boosting depth perception cues, such as tennis-ball tracking and detection of the ball’s spin. Also, interchangeable lens capabilities provide you with easy swapping, so you have the best lenses for different lighting conditions (night vs. indoor vs. day games).

Comfort and Grip
Since tennis is a game of quick, short bursts of movement, strong nose pads and temple grip (preferably with grip technology that tightens as you sweat) are essential. In addition, lightweight frame material provides a comfy feel — as opposed to heavier frames that weigh down on your face.

The Vero is available in prescription.
