Matrix Sunglasses For Dedicated Fans

Matrix Morpheus Sunglasses
– $ 49.95
The Matrix Revolutions Morpheus Sunglasses are some of the coolest sunglasses you’ll ever own. These sunglasses are awesome, they clip right onto your nose and since these are the premium style with silicon nose pads, they stay on quite well. These sunglasses are very light, you’ll hardly be able to tell you’re wearing them, and, yes, they’re comfortable to wear.

If you are a fan of The Matrix, The Matrix Reloaded and/or The Matrix Revolutions then you may be interested in getting your hands on some of the impressive designer sunglasses worn in these films.

Matrix sunglasses were brought to the market because of demand, and a frequent question asked has been, “where can I find the sunglasses worn in The Matrix?” So whether you fancy Morpheus, Trinity, Neo Seraph, The Twins or Agent Smith styles, the best bit is the price. They really are affordable with greatly reduced prices from about $30.

The range of sunglasses are shatterproof with scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses and with metal frames. Naturally, they also have UV400 protection which is the best protection you can get for your eyes.

As an example, what makes Morpheus Matrix sunglasses so quirky? If you’ve seen them, then you probably already know … they don’t have any arms! So, how do they stay on? They simply clip on to the bridge of your nose with the help of some very specific silicon nose pads. A word of caution though, if the bridge of your nose is particularly wide, you might want to give these designer sun glasses a miss. Now, do they really stay on? Yes, and you can do the majority of things while wearing them; bouncing on a trampoline, running, on the beach, driving etc. However, if you are planning going on a roller coaster or bungee jumping or similar, I would take them off or you may lose them! They do take some adjusting to, but once you have, they’re absolutely fine and do tend to create lots of interest from your friends and those that wonder how they magically ‘float’ on your face!


If you need prescription sunglasses, your optician will find it simple to replace the lenses, even with bifocal and progressive lenses. The Matrix sunglasses website reports they know it has been done with the Neo, Morpheus and Agent Smith styles.

Shipped worldwide for FREE they also come with a years unconditional money back guarantee. Currently, if you buy two pairs, you’ll get another FREE on some styles so you can keep a pair in your car, a pair at home and a pair at work! Just in case the sun decides to come out unexpectedly (in the UK anyway) and you don’t have any with you!

Get Authentic Oakley Sun Glasses And Not Fakes

If you need to ask why Oakley sun glasses, then you maybe you shouldn’t buy them. Although Oakley sunglasses UK are perhaps not as up-to-date with the ranges available in the USA, the UK is not that far behind in terms of availability.

Jim Jannard started Oakley in 1975 from his garage with just $300. His first product was a motorcycle handlebar grip that increased the grip of the hands when the hands sweated. These were quickly picked up on by top sportsmen. Other products, including eyewear followed.

Oakley look for the unexpected but always produce well researched and tested, quality products that have been designed and produced to exceptional standards. The only downside for the consumer is that this type of quality will not come cheaply.

Oakley sun glasses are popular as they certainly set fashion trends, but also, are popular for many different forms of sports usage. High Definition Optics ® allows for sharper and clearer vision and provides 100% UV protection that is so important to protect the eyes from the sun. Different lens tints will allow the user to optimise their performance in different types of sport, and you can also find Oakley sun glasses with photo chromic and polarised properties.

Some glasses will have greater impact protection if they are coated with Plutonite ®lens materials. Amazingly, Plutonite will protect from a metal spike weighing just over a pound in weight and dropped from four feet, or, a ¼ inch steel shot travelling at just over 100 miles per hour! A Hydrophobic® coating will make glasses great for water sports (or the English weather!), as water will just bead off without streaking. It also makes the glasses more resistant to finger smudges, oils, dirt and dust particles.

Styles suitable for women include Half Jacket, Minute 2.0 and Flak Jacket. If you find that glasses tend to sit too low on your face, slide down your nose, touch at your temples or cheeks, or feel narrow at the sides of your head, you may need a European/Asian fit. These can be found in the Half Jacket, Flak and Radar Pitch ranges among others.

The worst thing about the success of Oakley sun glasses are the imitations. As with most popular merchandise, there will be those who seek to make a profit with inferior quality copies. Fine – if that’s what you want. However, if you want to know your glasses are genuine and will last and protect your eyes; do not mess with fakes.

Buying Designer Sunglasses For Different Sports

It’s certainly not news that many people like to buy designer brands like Oakley, Dolce and Gabbana, Quiksilver, Spy and Electric sunglasses to name but a few. However, you should also consider the primary reason why you are buying new sunglasses in the first place, especially if they are for sports.

Don’t forget that you first need to consider that sunglasses, cheap or expensive, should comply with certain standards with regard eye protection. Such standards will carry different labels depending on the country, in Europe the standard is EN 1836:2005, in the US ANSI Z80.3-1972 and in Australia AS1067. You will find all designer sunglasses will adhere to these standards.

When you are buying new designer sunglasses they should not only protect against 100% of UV rays, but also filter out UVA, UVB and UVC.  Also remember that irrespective of the colour or darkness of the lens, it is actually the clear outer coating that filters the rays and not the colour itself.

Although you probably have an “everyday” pair of sunglasses, you probably know that you need a different pair for different sports or for driving. Many people don’t consider the reason, but the colour of the lenses and construction of the sunglasses may affect your vision in dissimilar ways. The proposed use of your glasses is probably why some companies (such as Birdz Hawk) produce sunglasses with interchangeable lenses.

Driving glasses should help keep you alert and your eyes comfortable without causing any eye-strain or headaches. Look for polarised lenses and, if possible these should have a grey tint which is more neutral and is unlikely to affect visual contrast or to distort colour.

If you are a cyclist, you really need a tougher lens because of the increased airflow to the face. Don’t forget your peripheral vision is also susceptible so a wrap-around style may be preferable. If you are a golfer, try yellow lenses as it enhances contrast and depth perception.

More extreme sports demand particular elements for sunglasses. For instance, for mountaineering and other altitude sports one needs to consider the exceptionally bright conditions as well as the high altitudes. Altitude sports require a category 4 lens that takes these conditions into account. Glasses or goggles required for water sports such a surfing or kayaking etc., should be shatter-proof and fog resistant, have a nose cushion, be buoyant and have a means of fixing such as a strap.

In summary, get the best UV protection you can, think about the colour of the lens and the other considerations mentioned above in relation to the intended use of your new designer sunglasses.
