55mm Sunglasses for Men & Women


The first number in eyewear sizing refers to the width of each lens in millimeters. The 55mm sunglasses size fits and flatters an average-sized face and is one of our best-selling sizes.

Consider frame size when choosing sunglasses

Determining the sunglass size that fits you best optimizes eye protection as well as your field of vision. Though you may find you wear slightly different sizes in sunglasses depending on their shape and style, having an idea of the size range that fits your face makes shopping easier.
55 mm sunglasses flatter many face shapes. Always give our virtual try-on feature a whirl before purchasing to make sure you’re getting the style you want in the best-fitting size.

Check out our 55mm sunglasses collection

55mm aviator sunglasses are our best-sellers. Both the Original Pilot and General are available in size 55. Be sure to use virtual try-on to see our 55mm sunglasses on face to see if you prefer to size up or down, and whether you prefer a square or teardrop sunglass shape.

Enhance your vision with AO polarized lenses

55mm polarized sunglasses protect your vision in many ways. All AO lenses offer 100% UV protection, but adding polarization further reduces eye strain by eliminating glare. Wearing polarized sunglasses makes all-day wear in bright light conditions much more comfortable for your eyes. We especially recommend polarized lenses for activities like driving, water and snow sports, and hiking.
