Wrap around sunglasses have a circular frame shape that “wraps” around your head and fits closely to your face. In the optical world, we call this an 8-base curve. The base curve tells you how much a lens curves to the shape of your face. The higher the number, the more it curves. You can read more about this in our blog titled What is the Base Curve on Sunglasses?
These frames are made to “hug” your face way more than a regular pair of sunglasses. Because they follow the natural contour of your noggin, there isn’t a lot of room for wind, dust, sunlight, or negativity to get in. So you stay cool, calm, and collected against the world outside.
SportRx is an authorized dealer for top names in wrap around prescription sunglasses like Wiley X, Oakley, and Costa Del Mar. We carry a range of styles, from the standard two-lens design to single-lens shield styles.
If you want high coverage without having to wear goggles, you’ll love wrap around frames. No matter which brand you go with, this shape provides ultimate protection. A standard pair of sunglasses doesn’t usually block sunlight from the top and sides of the frame, however, a wrap around style keeps your eyes almost fully enclosed. If you’re into the outdoors or work in the elements, you’ll love this level of wind and sun protection.
Wrap around sunglasses are also a go-to choice for athletes in high speed sports who need a frame that stays put during activity. Most come with rubber detailing around the frame that provides traction during movement. Wrap around prescription sunglasses are great for fishing, cycling, military and tactical needs and are available with clear lenses, too.
Lastly, wrap around shades are a favorite for anyone who tends to sweat a lot. The shape alone gives you a close fit that doesn’t allow for much wiggle room, but rubber detailing on the temple tips and nose bridge becomes tackier as you sweat. You won’t have to worry about fogging either, since a lot of styles are equipped with venting systems to keep the air flowing.
Basically, you can depend on your wrap around eyewear to see you through your sweatiest, most active days with all day comfort and coverage.
