Like most of us outdoorsy folk, I have had my fair share of sunglasses over the years. From the Ray Ban sunglasses, I wore during my Tom Cruise "Top Gun" phase of my life, to the "I'm so cool and trendy" with my wrap-around Oakley sunglasses.
To be honest I never quite outgrew the wrap-around sunglasses phase as I found it to be both practical and complimented our outdoorsy lifestyle. The Gucci sunglasses, i.e. "I’m a fly" sunglasses trend, I never could understand, but then again, I'm more of a practical guy than a catwalk model.
I have bad astigmatism in my right eye, something about my cornea being shaped like my oval head. The wrap-around glasses provide wind protection, preventing my contact lens from coming out of my eye and causing me to ride into a tree or worst-case scenario, over a cliff.
Due to my astigmatism, I always have glasses or sunglasses on my face, so it is no wonder that I've had many pairs stolen over the years. My Oakley's were especially prone to get stolen (popular expensive brand), I must have had at least 5 pairs stolen, and begrudgingly admit to misplacing/ losing two pairs on vacation in Phuket and South France.
Needless to say, when your shades get stolen or “misplaced”, its both extremely annoying and costly.
Both myself and my wife Michele have recently been introduced to Orion4Sight sunglasses. We got two pairs for our summer vacation to San Carlos, Mexico. Why Mexico you ask, well, it's great for fishing and snorkeling, and the only place we, as Americans, were allowed to travel during COVID this year.
I was skeptical that they would be a good as my trusted Oakley sunglasses or my prescription glasses with transition lenses. The Orion4Sight glasses proved to be AMAZING, not only are they comfortable wrap-around glasses, and nothing like the cheap crappie counterfeit Oakley's that every street vendor seems to want to sell you when you on vacation.
These Orion4Sight glasses are the real deal. The frame and specially formed nose pads, seem to have been made for my face and nose. I have a button nose and my wife a sharp pointy witch-like nose, or so I am told 😊. The Orion4Sight sunglasses fit both our profiles perfectly.
ORION4Sight Lens incorporates “Spin-Off Technologies” from the original ORION Optical Eyewear Filters developed for US Special Operation Commands and law enforcement.
It' basically normalizes the difference you would experience when transitioning from a light to a dark environment. This in turn reduces eye strain and fatigue. After wearing these for just a few hours I could tell the difference, especially in the 100+ degree Fahrenheit weather.
Orion4Sight sunglasses enhance personal vision on rainy and foggy days, in bright sunlight, or at high altitudes. They are perfect for all action sports, as well as nearly any other outdoor activity. These sunglasses make the world look different, especially Mexico in August, the sunsets are crisper, more vivid, and more beautiful, still hot as hell but beautiful.
Best of all, they will not cost you an arm and a leg like a pair of Oakley's, you will not be too upset when you "misplace" them. Your eyes will thank you for trying these sunglasses, and you will look great in them. I cannot wait to try their ski goggles this season.
