I am not the type of person that goes for fashion first when I buy clothes and accessories. I go for function, and then I look at style. It makes no sense if I buy something that looks great but feel awful to wear. The same goes with sunglasses. I must have tried on dozens of pairs at different stores. A lot of them do not have what I am looking for in terms of comfort and functionality. I finally found a pair that fits the bill These are Oakleys Gascan sunglasses.
When I tried them one, I knew right away that I was wearing something special. The frames fit very comfortably on my face. They almost have the perfect wrap to it. The curve of the frame looks continuous, so the design is really streamlined. I like that. When I read the specs of these sunglasses online, I found out that the lenses were cut from one piece of lense that is curved. So when the cut lenses are fitted into the frames, they naturally come together in a perfect, continuous curve. Oakley really put a lot of thought to this when they designed the Oakleys gascan.
The frames are super lightweight and feel very comfortable. When I look in the mirror, I liked what I saw.
The clarity of the lenses is also impressive. I could actually see clearer when I have these on because they are very effective in cutting down the glare. I can see clearly even with my peripheral vision. The design of the glasses is such that it does not impair the peripheral vision clarity. I’ve tried on sunglasses that that paid no attention to peripheral vision, which were awful. The lenses offer 100% protection from the full spectrum of sun radiation, UVA, UVB and UVC. You cannot ask for more than that from a pair of sunglasses.
I suggest to anyone who wants to buy a pair of sunglasses to go a store and try on different ones first. Jot down the brand and design that you like. Things usually cost more at a brick and mortar store, so you can probably find a better deal when you go online. It is important to try on the sunglasses first before you commit to buy because you never know how they actually look on you until you put them on.
These sunglasses from Oakley will not disappoint. Oakley has a great reputation when it comes to eyewear. Their frames are stylish, durable and very comfortable. The Gascan style is perfect for everyday wear for all occasions. This has become my favorite pair among the other sunglasses that I own.
Oakley makes a lot of eye protection for athletes. The Gascans are tested to protect the wearer’s eyes effectively from impact. Those are very high ANSI standards that the Oakleys Gascan glasses meet.
Not only do these feel good, but they look good too. I drive a convertible, and these glasses would give my eyes the perfect protection.
