Low Vision Accessories, Frames and Trial Sets

Slip Behind Sunglasses

Slip-Behind Sunglasses were designed to go behind the frame, these sunglasses also have the feature of a wrap-around edge which helps to reduce the glare coming in from the side of the patient.

Wrap-Around Sunglasses

Wrap-Around Sunglasses are appropriate for any prescription. When used with a telescopic aid, a hole can be drilled in the lens, through which the telescopic unit is placed (must be specified on order if desired). This allows the sunglass to fit flush against the frame that the patient is wearing. This sunglass also has a side piece which helps to reduce glare coming in from the side of the patient.
