The smart traveler knows: Travel Sunglasses are a necessity.
Dress your eyes in protection and style. Every traveler needs travel sunglasses, and every traveler wants to ensure his eye wear are in style.
Travel comes with trials and tribulations, and it puts a lot of pressure on your eyes. Some of the places can be very hot, sunny, dry, or windy and you need sunglasses that offer protection without breaking the bank.
That is why I love these sunglasses!
They’re stylish because the Polaroid lenses are surrounded by a cool metal frame, they offer 100% UV400 protection, and are affordable!

When I knew I Wanted To Share It
Everyone, whether they travel or not, need sunglasses.
“Sunglasses are a great fashion accessory, but their most important job is to protect your eyes from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays,” says the National Eye Institute.
What are some of the damages these rays can do? Things like cataracts, pterygium, and macular degeneration.
Furthermore, it is important to know that the sun affects different places differently.
“Factors like altitude, latitude and the reflective nature of snow, sand and water can turn a mild burn into a serious case of lobster skin,” says Christine Sarkis, from the HuffingtonPost.
Of course, as the National Eye Institute warns in the article linked, sun damage is not just about the skin but all of your body, including your eyes.
My personal connection to travel sunglasses took place when I was in Sydney. At the hotel I was staying I met Ludo, a German tourist who ended up with sun damage. He was in the outback and he thinks someone stole his travel sunglasses.
“I woke up in the morning and they were gone,” recalled Ludo. “There were a few people that I was traveling with. A couple had gone the night before, and I think they stole my sunglasses.”
Consequently, Ludo ended up with damage. Not very bad damage, but it was enough to go to the hospital in Sydney.
So, these days I’m a travel sunglasses zealot.
