The best sunglasses are the ones you’ll wear again and again

While a wide-brimmed hat will give you some protection overhead from the sun, those direct rays aren’t the only reason to shield your eyes during the summer (and even winter!). Water, sand and snow all reflect the sun back up onto your face. According to, Canada’s largest optical online retailer, polarized lenses are the best for protecting from direct reflective glare. These lenses contain a chemical filter that absorbs horizontal light waves (reflections), while allowing the vertical waves to pass through (direct light).

Here are some of our fave sunglasses to shop right now. Be sure to add them to your summer road-trip packing list!
