sunglasses that fit over prescription glasses – Live Eyewear’s Vistana
Fit & Comfort: The first thing I did when I received my new pair of
sunglasses was to put them on and see if they fit over my prescription glasses.
Then, I finely adjusted them to wrap around my face firmly and comfortably.
Thanks to the Vistana’s Flex2Fit temples, fine adjustments are quick and simple,
and I was able to confidently bend them by hand without the worry of them

After the adjustments, my small sized Vistanas fit my new frames perfectly
although they didn’t seem to grab onto my skin as well as the Cocoons. That’s
probably because the Vistana is made of a more modern, rigid TR90 material in
the frames while the Cocoons incorporate the Soft Touch, a non-slip, soft, and
smooth layer on the shades. The non-securing grip is easy to overcome by simply
making adjustments to the Flex2Fit temples to grab more firmly.

Just like the Cocoons that I previously wore, the Vistana feels comfortable to
wear over my new set of prescription glasses. After several full day fishing
trips and daily driving, I would have to say these OveRx shades fit quite well
and are very comfortable.

Performance: The Vistana comes with Polare lenses and performs well on
the water. This lens is not only polarized but also blocks 100% of the harmful
UV rays coming from the harsh sun. From what I see the gray Polare lenses on the
Vistana seem lighter than the Polar TX gray lenses from my Cocoons, and the
Polare lenses appear to be sharper. (Note: The new Cocoons now use the same
Polare lenses. My old pair used Polar TX lenses) When you take the polarized
sunglasses off and put them on and off again, you can definitely tell the
different looking into the water, as they eliminate glare allowing better

The Vistana will help you see better into the water and shield your eyes
throughout the day in the harmful sun rays. The wraparound design also provides
good protection against wind while running the boat. With the wind and sun out
of your eyes, you don’t have to worry about eye strain and can focus your full
attention on catching fish.
The sunglasses come with a luxury
soft-case and a micro-fiber lens cloth
