Fitovers Are Really Me
I have two pairs of eyeglasses I use all the time. What a pain in the butt. If I wanted sunglasses, I would need three pairs, or maybe even four pairs!
- Trifocals most of the time
- Single vision lens for computer time
- Trifocal sunglasses
- Single vision sunglasses for golf (trying to decide which segment of a trifocal to keep on the ball is a challenge.)
I have transition trifocals now which darken when exposed to sunlight. Which are a pain when we are wandering around from shop to shop in and out and in and out. The lens either is too dark or not dark enough. And did you know that in cold weather, transition lenses get darker quicker and stay darker longer because of the cold? Trifocals are also being updated in the form of progressive lenses but are something else that would need adjusting to over time. It all depends on what you’re looking for when it comes to glasses.
Pain. In. The. Buttocks.
Guess what I got! Fitovers! Yup, sunglasses that are designed to fit over regular glasses. Get it? Fitovers… fit over?
And I love ’em.
I anticipated they would look like the freebie I get from the eye doc after I get my eyes dilated.
When the chick from Fitovers asked me if I wanted to sample a pair, of course I jumped at the chance for a free sample. I didn’t care if they turned out to be ugly. I could get a post and maybe even a laugh wearing them someday. She said they don’t have any Steampunk styles – yet.
I love these Fitover sunglasses! Nancy does too…
I am flabbergasted. They are stylish, well made, and affordable. I have the Razor Style in Gun Metal. (Insert Tim Allen grunts here.)
Fitovers come in a lot of different styles and colors for both men and women.
I’m retiring my transition lenses and using my new Fitovers. I think Nancy will be getting a pair too. They are available in stores or online. (there is a chart to help you figure out the correct size to fit over your existing glasses.
Seeing as my prescription sunglesses just bought the farm, I may have to look into these. Thanks for the tip.
@Brian: I am getting new glasses without the transition option and these will work great for my needs.
Ohhhh those look awesome! I agree with you all the way on disagreeable sunglass options! I have such sensitive eyes that I can’t stand to go outside without dark glasses. Do they want boomers to try them free or did you have to purchase. I’ll blog about them if they want me to!

I like the new layout!
And these Fitovers sound pretty good. My spare pair of reading glasses are forever ruined due to scratches from the sunglass lens I had to force down over them. And they didn’t even match the frames. Yes, I could now read on the beach, but I looked like a dumbass.
So, yes. I will check these out.
Thanks for the review!
Ordered mine yesterday – of course, they have a little leopard on them!!!! I hope the day they arrive, it’s sunny!
@Nancy: Sun? Oh, yeah that big yellow thing in the sky. I almost forgot.
fantastic publish, very informative. I’m wondering why the opposite specialists of this sector don’t notice this. You should continue your writing. I am confident, you’ve a great readers’ base already!
