Find activewear sunglasses for contact lens wearers with light sensitive eyes.
Living here in Cyprus means it's usually bright and sunny and that means I almost always wear sunglasses when I go outside.
But there's also another reason. As I wear contact lenses, I need to keep dust out of my eyes as well as bright light and I wear sports or activewear sunglasses as I'm often out on my mountain bike keeping fit or riding with clients.
I've bought several pairs of expensive Oakley sunglasses over the years, mainly as I wanted the best possible UV protection and wrap-around sports styling. I have to admit, however, that all of my Oakley mirror lens shades now have pitted lenses through grit flicking up onto the sunglasses when mountain biking.
For that reason I now only buy cheap activewear sunglasses, but still insist on 100% UV protection from a brand I can trust. I got my latest unisex pair of sports cycling glasses with interchangeable lenses, DHB Triple Lens Sunglasses from the UK, a brand called DHB, which is exclusive to online cycling retailer Wiggle.
But I've also found some other cool sunglasses for everyday use or for sports. And the best bit is I can order them online from my favourite online contact lens retailer AC Lens.
They stock over 60 different brands all at great prices including Rayban, Oakley, Bolle, Serengeti, Gucci, Dior, Burberry & more!
Here's my shortlist of cool activewear sunglasses, perfect for wearing with contact lenses that also look pretty hot on the bike, in the boat, hiking up a mountain or just chilling!
