Riding with a helmet and sunglasses can sometimes be a little daunting. Most of the time you can’t really see through the lens or there’s an uncomfortable fit. We’ve all been there. Most of us have experienced that annoying rub or slip down the nose or worst yet that blinding oncoming sunlight. Sure we’d love to invest in some protective eye gear, but in the end, we usually choose something that looks cool and that we don’t really care about. Accidents do happen and I’m not squashing my Diors. I’m just not. I don’t care how good they look. So, I usually ride in a pair that I’m not that attached to or the most comfortable ones I can find. Can you relate?

I finally got a little sick of rolling through glasses. Then I found some sunnies that were technically superior in optics, comfortable, styley and they won’t break the bank if they happen to, god forbid, take an unexpected tumble to the ground. I love my Eagle Eyes Optics. Say that fast 3 times. (giggle)

The origin of Eagle Eyes® began at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory where scientists developed ground-breaking technology that would protect human eyesight from the harmful effects of solar radiation light. NASA researchers first looked to nature for a solution – in particular, by studying how eagles and hawks can distinguish their prey from their surroundings with utmost precision.

Their findings revealed that eagles have unique oil droplets in their eyes that selectively filter out harmful radiation and permit only specific wavelengths of light to enter their eyes giving them extremely powerful visual clarity, even at great distances. NASA then replicated this discovery into a lens technology that, in turn, resulted in Eagle Eyes® – a leader in high performance eye-wear.

It’s a pretty cool story and I was happy to put them to the off the track Thoroughbred test. In otherwords, if they stayed on my face and I was able to see I’m golden. Lucky for me they excelled far past my expectations. I love these sunnies!

Eagle Eyes come in a bunch of your favorite styles. I opted for the standard aviator in women’s sunglasses and love the fit and feel. They’re also pretty cool to look through with space-age optics, anti-glare and non scratch lenses. In a more detailed explanation their sunnies use TriLenium® a Eagle Eyes’ original blue light blocking polarized lens. Developed from original NASA optic technology that replicated the oil droplets found in eagles’ eyes, their sunnies not only protect your eyes by blocking blue light and 99.9% of harmful solar radiation, they expand your vision. UVA and UVB can cause cataracts that may damage your retinas. Scattered blue light could increase your risk of macular degeneration. Eagle Eyes’ TriLenium® lenses block all three types of damaging radiation.

Let’s face it, I’m stoked with the aviators. I wear them everyday whether I’m riding or not.  They also come in men’s sunglasses styles and offer several eye glass options from reading to computer.

Find your own pair, I swear you won’t be disappointed and you will love the reasonable price point. #teameagleeyes
