If you wear prescription glasses, protecting your eyes from the sun can be a problem. Clip-on shades can let sun in from the sides, but the HD Vision Wrap Arounds fit around your prescription sunglasses.
Eveline Hallgren has been bugging me all year to test these glasses. She got tired of waiting and bought a pair herself. She says her vision is bad and the sun bothers her all the time. Well, she did admit she forgets to carry her sunglasses with her. "That's why I bought them. You wear them over your (prescription) glasses. I thought it was a good idea," she said.
When Eveline put them on, I couldn't help but notice. "They're ugly," I said. "I know they're ugly, but a lot of things are ugly that are good," said Eveline.
She may be right and, ugly or not, Eveline is still one tough critic. "However, there's one thing. They will scratch your glasses. At least they will mine. It's tight. It will scratch your glasses," she said.
We dragged Eveline outside and asked her if she noticed the high definition technology. "What's high definition?" she asked. We explained to her what that was on the HD Vision Wrap Arounds. "It is just like a pair of dumb old sunglasses," said Eveline.
I wanted to know for myself. So, I gave them a try. They had a yellow or amber tint to them. It was hard for me to tell if they enhanced the clarity and color on the sunglasses. "It does tone down the brightness of that white garage," I said. "But regular sunglasses will do the same thing," noted Eveline.
These glasses cost $10 and you can bet, just like Eveline said, dumb old sunglasses will do the same thing when the sun is shining bright outside. These sunglasses in my opinion are not a must have. It didn't make my world clearer like I thought it would and Eveline thought the same thing too. "Personally, I'm gonna take them back," said Eveline. It doesn't work.
