Do I still need Sunglasses in Winter?

We all know how important it is to protect our eyes during the sunnier times of year but we often neglect to wear sunglasses come the winter months.

Do I need to wear sunglasses in winter? Well, the answer is pretty simple…Yes! The sun may indeed appear lower and chances are that you won’t see it quite as often, but those UV rays hurt your eyes all year around, not just in summer.

Your choice of summer sunglasses should be completley different to those you wear in winter. Typically, summer sunglasses have much darker lenses whereas their winter counterparts have lighter tinted lenses. The reason for this is because the lighting is very different in winter therefore you need a pair of sunglasses that are equipped to deal with it.

When choosing which lighter lenses are right for you, it is important to weigh up the various options. Grey lenses are superb on a bright sunny day, whereas brown, amber, or pink lenses can improve contrast and help with depth perception too. This in turn helps to reduce glare. If you are looking for an all rounder then these are by far your best bet as they perform well in various weather conditions.

You may also want to invest in a pair that is very close fitting as they can help minimise any harmful rays or sun glare getting to your eyes. This will also help with reflected light from snow.

Winter Sports

Going skiing or snowboarding? If the answer is yes then you will certainly need to invest in some sunglasses. Chances are that if you are a keen sportsperson then Oakley sunglasses will have a model that fits the bill. With funky styles such as the Frogskin and Jupiter to sports specific types including the fast jacket and pitt boss you can’t go wrong.

Oakley ‘Back to Basics’ Eyewear Range

We recently posted about the re-release of the classic Oakley Frogskin but this is just one frame that forms part of the Oakley Back to Basics Sunglasses range.

Oakley are renowned worldwide for their production of technically advanced sunglasses such as the fast jacket, jawbone and flak jacket that push the boundaries of sunglass design. It is of little wonder that Oakley sunglasses are worn by professional sports people worldwide.

However, sometimes it’s just good to go right back to basics and produce a good pair of sunglasses that does not have (or need) all the bells and whistles that other models have. Well, this is what Oakley have done with the six frames in their Back to Basics eyewear range.

Lets take a look at these frames in a little more detail…

Oakley Frogskin


We’ve talked about this one recently but Oakley Frogskin sunglasses are a nice casual frame that were originally released back in the eighties. Available in a myriad of bright colours, the Frogskin is a true classic.

Oakley Holbrook

Closely resembling the Frogskin, Oakley Holbrook sunglasses are another retro styled frame. Most notably worn by snowboarding legend Shaun White, the Holbrook is a classic, available in various colours although the matte white with violet iridium lenses are one of our favourites.


Oakley FuelCell

The Oakley Fuelcell is a solid, sturdy plastic frame with the instantly recognisable Oakley ‘O’ on the temple. The Fuel Cell has a great curve on the lens to provide brilliant protection from all angles of sunlight.

The Fuel cell is lightweight, so very comfortable, and has the Oakley three-point fit, so the frame only touches in three places- behind the ears and on the nose- ensuring they are as comfortable as they can possibly be!

Oakley Gascan

Oakley Gascan sunglasses are another frame that follows a simple design. The Oakley Gascan come with a year’s warranty and are ideal for someone sensitive to light as the frame wraps nicely around the face. They also come with large thick arms to completely block sunlight from all angles. The Oakley Gascan sits right into the eye socket and fits with great comfort.

Oakley Eyepatch 2

The Oakley Eyepatch 2 is a large square Oakley frame that comes with a rather intricate arm. Polaric Ellipsoid geometry ensures maximum visual clarity and the two lenses are cut from a single toric shape of lens material and precisely positioned within the frame to maintain the original contour.

Oakley Batwolf

The Oakley Batwolf have a nice clean look and really make a statement. They have a single continuous lens that curves around the lightweight O Matter frame.

The Batwolf also comes with dual cam hinges that blend smoothly into the sculpture and the three point fit as well. The Oakley Batwolf has been designed to fit comfortably on medium to large faces.
