Should you Purchase Presciption Sunglasses or get a Clip for your eyeglasses.

Many People who wear Glasses have a delima whether to purchase a pair of sunglasses or to get a clip that fits over their glasses. These are both great options and each one has their benefits.
Most clips do not fit correctly on certain frames and that is why at Erker's Eyewear we only make custom clips for each pair of glasses. This is to ensure the best fit, vision and longevity over the life of your frames. Clips are great because they are not bulky like sunglasses and are easy to carry around with you. Clips have a few drawbacks due to the way the fit over the frame, a person wearing a clip typically does not get as much coverage as they could with a pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses are great for this reason. They block out more sunlight. Sunglasses are also better for your active on-the-go life style and should fit perfectly for a second pair of prescription eyewear. The drawbacks to sunglasses are they are much bulkier to carry and you are buying two pair of prescription eyewear. Clips and Sunglasses are both great for different reasons. You just need to choose which would better fit your needs and your lifestyle. Come to Erkers in Ladue or Downtown and our opticians will help you pick the one that works best for you.

See you at Erker's
