I love Fitovers so much, I own two pairs. As someone who wears glasses 24/7/365, I needed a solution for sunny days. I tried Transitions but they were never dark enough on sunny, sunny, warm days. Prescription sun glasses are expensive and had to be replaced when my prescription changed. Sun glass clips for my glasses proved to be cumbersom and easily broke. Finally I found Fitovers and they changed my life. Fitovers do a fantastic job of providing for my eyes in bright sunlight and I love the little extra protection on the sides.

Couldn’t be happier with my Fitovers. Great protection from sun and glare at the beach, and look a lot better than the clip-ons my family has been teasing me about over the years. Fitovers moved me several notches higher on the style meter.
