Senior Sunglasses


As we age, our eyes need extra protection from sunlight’s glare and UV rays which can lead to age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and other eye diseases. Guard your vision and skin with the right sunglasses for seniors from American Optical. Thoughtfully designed pairs with features like polarized lenses, specialized tints, and UV protection filter harsh sunlight while reducing squinting and wrinkles around the eyes. Keep your vision sharp and embrace outdoor living with senior eyewear.

Why Would Seniors Want to Wear Sunglasses?

As we age, changes in our vision can make us more sensitive to glare and sunlight, including glaucoma-related light sensitivity, and other eye diseases. Wearing the right sunglasses provides seniors with essential eye protection and comfort when out and about. With reduced squinting, sunglasses also help prevent further wrinkling around the sensitive skin near the eyes. 

Specialized tints and polarization allow seniors to see clearly by reducing distracting reflected light. UV-blocking lenses are critical to filter out harmful UV rays that can contribute to vision issues. With styles designed for oval, diamond, round, and heart-shaped faces, seniors can find fashionable sunglasses to match their personality. With the right pair, seniors can confidently stay outdoors while protecting their eyesight and appearance.

American Optical’s Ageless Styles for Discerning Mature Tastes

When it comes to senior citizen sunglasses, American Optical offers discerning seniors a range of classic styles ideal for protecting aging eyes in sophisticated fashion.

Aviators

With their teardrop-shaped lenses in a thin metal frame, aviator sunglasses beautifully compliment round faces, oval faces, and diamond face shapes. The large lenses fully shield sensitive skin around the eyes from harsh sunlight.

Saratoga

These mid-century-inspired sunglasses with square or rectangular frames flatter diamond and square face shapes with their thick, angular frames and trapezoidal lenses. They filter light while lending a refined, vintage vibe.

Cat-Eye Style

The uplifted shape of cat-eye frames flatters the oval face type, heart, and diamond-shaped faces. Their curvy silhouette and pointed edges add femininity while the oversized lenses offer full UVA/UVB protection.

Round Sunglasses

As the name suggests, those with round face shapes will love the curved, circular lenses and frames of this classic style. Large, circular lenses minimize squinting, fully protect delicate skin under the eyes, and preventing crow’s feet.
