Review: Sunglasses from Glasses Shop

Sadly, I recently had to abandon a pair of sunglasses which I had worn for many years because I managed to scratch the lenses resulting in a blurry spot. My husband is always telling me off for putting my glasses down on the lenses! Luckily, Glasses Shop, a company offering glasses online got in touch offering me the chance to try out one of their pairs. I went for the Valdosta Square – Black sunglasses.

Glasses Shop is described as a client-oriented company who make the visual needs of their customers our first priority with both frames and prescription sunglasses. They value integrity and honesty, striving for a professional, reliable service which is user-friendly so customers can shop for eyeglasses with confidence.

My sunglasses came with a free hard case and microfiber lens cloth, which are always handy! The Valdosta Square sunglasses are made from polished metal and quality plastic with a good solid black colour. They have a chic square design which suits most people’s face shapes. The glasses come with adjustable nose pads and metal temple arms for added flexibility and comfort.

The Valdosta Square sunglasses are available with prescription lenses or (the ones I went for as I had corrective surgery a few years back) the non-prescription polarized (for superior glare protection) sunglasses. Glasses Shop apply a free scratch proof multi-hard coating to both sides of the lens to minimize the chance of small scratches and extends the life of your glasses which is handy for people like me who just put them down in any old place!

I really like the look and feel of the sunglasses, the square shape is very flattering and has a bit of a retro edge to it. The frames feel sturdy and of good quality. The adjustable nose pads made it easy to fit the sunglasses comfortably and the anti-scratch coating is a huge bonus! At just over 30g in weight, these glasses are certainly easy to wear but don’t feel so light you worry about them falling off.

I have enjoyed wearing the Valdosta Square sunglasses from Glasses Shop and although I still grieve for my old pair, these new ones are certainly doing a great job at protecting my eyes from the sun. I award them 4 out of 5 stars.
