Whatever your sport, you want your eyes protected. Part of that protection is making sure your sunglasses stay on your face so you can do you unbothered and undistracted. The last thing you want to happen at that vital moment is to have your sunglasses fall off of your head slowing you down or stopping you altogether. Sweat proof sunglasses make sure that nothing stops you, not even your own sweat. Read on to find out what sunglasses do best at staying put when you sweat.

Hydrophilic: What Does That Even Mean?

Most sports sunglasses have rubbery material at the nose bridge part and the temple ends to help keep the shades in place on your face when you sweat. The material is called Hydrophilic, which means in short that it likes water and becomes tackier when activated by moisture. This means that the more you sweat, the better they grip.

Here are a few of the top frames for keeping cool under pressure:

Additionally, the Oakley Split Shot features PRIZM lens technology that enhances visual clarity so you can see well no matter what your chosen sport.
