The Go-To Sunglass Styles of INVISION Readers

Did your favorite sunnies make the cut?




Reader: Nikki Griffin

Kate Spade

The aesthetic appeal of the Angelique’s colors and design combined with the quality of the acetate front and temples offer a result that “sells itself.”

Reader: Ken Boltz, OD

Maui Jim

The Kawika, a clubmaster style, offers a nod to an original Maui Jim style, and features MauiPure lens material.

Reader: Nikki Griffin


Etnia Barcelona

“It brings happy everywhere it goes!” Along with the happy, the Etna brings with it a resistance to temperatures over 700° F, maximum UV protection, and Italian-made acetate.

Reader: Rick Rickgauer


Part of the Premium Metal Series, the Dante (8458), features Serengeti’s signature lens technology and comfortable wire-flex temples. A reader said the style makes him say, “Aaaaaah… [picture Homer Simpson drooling over doughnuts].”


Reader: Pam Neagle


It’s hip to be square for the RB1971, a revamp of the popular metal, square style of the 70s. Available in a range of colors as well as black, one true selling point for this style is its “unique shape.”

Smith Optics

A lightweight, stainless steel frame with tailor-fit, adjustable nose pads that “won’t get stuck” in your hair, the Langley is a smooth, modern aviator.

(888) 206-2995,

$169 (polarized)

Reader: Stephanie Crowley



A glitter-gradient acetate front rests in a light metal frame on the F-2037, which a reader describes as “a beautiful sunglass that also makes a pretty ophthalmic!”

(855) 455-0042,


Reader: Chris Lopez, OD

Wiley X

Eyewear with climate control? Yes, please. The Compass is one of many Wiley X styles with the removable Facial Cavity Seal. One reader notes such extreme dry-eye that he couldn’t run his car’s AC, but “the foam insert prevents air from sliding behind the lenses.” He says, “I love this frame and would highly recommend.”

(800) 776-7842,

$100 (non-polarized, as shown)

Reader: Carissa Dunphy

Trina Turk

The butterfly-shaped, sunset-of-the-70s-inspired Sovalye makes its mark with drop temples and beveled end pieces.
