A quality pair of sunglasses are essential for protecting and preserving your eye health. Although they should be worn all year round, they're crucial during spring and summer months when UV rays are at their strongest. UV rays increases the risk of our eyes developing issues that can impair our vision including astigmatism, cataracts and macular degeneration.

"My partner and I buy these three packs regularly since we break or lose our sunnies all the time," one shopper wrote. "They're awesome! They look just like Ray-Bans but they cost a lot less. I've been wearing them for well over a year and I love the soft plastic and little bag that they come with. Perfect for biking or hiking or driving! I have a wide head, too and they don't squish my face."

"If you're like me, buying one pair of $100 glasses is not only impractical but highly frustrating. They're never where they need to be when I need them, I scratch a lens and get pissed off, I lose them; the list goes on," another wrote. "These glasses are the elixir to this problem. $50 will get you six pairs so you'll never have to worry about any of the problems mentioned above. They're everywhere, making them highly practical. I don't lose sleep over scratched lenses or falling asleep on the couch and destroying them. Polarization and lens quality is great; I'm not looking to impress anybody by how much I can spend on glasses. Will buy another lot again once [my] supplies dwindle."

Although a majority of reviews are positive, some shoppers have noted that lenses might not be as durable in the long run. 

"Definitely an economical option, but you get what you pay for," an Amazon shopper wrote. "A pair lasted me four months before it snapped. The glass itself is also easy to scratch, so be careful with that."

Verdict

If you're looking for a few pairs of sunglasses to wear throughout the summer that will protect your eyes without breaking the bank, Kaliyadi's sunnies might be for you. 

The affordable sunglasses might not be as fashionable as designer brands, but they boast thousands of positive reviews from Amazon shoppers who vouch for their quality.
