They snap onto your existing frames to give your eyes instant relief from glare and UV rays. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

July 05, 2019:

The most important thing to consider when shopping for sunglasses, including clip-ons, is the degree of protection they offer from the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays, which are categorized in two types--UVA and UVB. Your eyes and eyelids can be damaged by the sun, and sunglasses that offer UV protection are like sunscreen for your eyes. Look for models that are rated at UV400, which means they block 100% of UV rays, both UVA and UVB. Lens polarization is also popular since it helps reduce glare, but it can make some digital displays difficult to read.

Everybody needs to protect their eyes from the sun. Fortunately, expensive prescription sunglasses or large ones that cover your regular glasses are not your only options. Clip-on sunglasses come in a large array of styles and colors, as reflected in our selections, and you can find a clip-on that meets your needs. In this update, we favored models that offer 99 or 100 percent UV protection while still looking good. Promoted the Eyekepper Easyclip to one of our top slots because of its reputation with users, ease of use, and the full protection it offers.
