Rated 5 out of 5 by deidre so relieved to have found these
I have sensitive skin and eyes and ...everything. I get headaches from sunglasses if they are too heavy, or don't fit my face correctly, or put the slightest bit of pressure on the sides of my head above my ears, or give me eye strain. So needless to say I have a hard time finding sunglasses that don't do any of these things AND still look good on my tiny little face.
Previously the only sunglasses I had found that didn't hurt my face were the Ray Ban 3309, which have been discontinued for years. I've been buying them used on ebay for an outrageous price during this time (I have a tendency to misplace my sunglasses a lot). I've tried other sunglasses in stores, but nothing feels right on my face.
When I lost my last pair during a hiking trip a month ago, I decided to try again. I saw these online and headed to the store immediately to try them on. Unfortunately the sunglass hut near me didn't carry them, so I decided to take the plunge and order them online. At least I can return them if I don't like them. I also took advantage of the Home Try On Programs (which is AWESOME by the way!) and I tried 4 additional pairs of similar sunglasses (these were not eligible for the home try on program at that time).
When I received my order, I tried them all on in the mirror and took selfies to compare them side by side. Altogether I tried on 6 pairs of sunglasses, 2 of them were this model in SILVER / GREY and GOLD / BROWN. One pair hurt my head so those were put back immediately. Another pair seemed a bit heavy, which I knew in time would start to give me a headache. So I was down to 4 pairs that didn't hurt my head, all of which happened to be Ray Bans.
I finally decided that these were the ones because I felt that they looked the best with my face shape. I chose the SILVER / GREY color because they looked the best with my complexion (fair with rosy undertones). I was sad to return the GOLD / BROWN, because I really loved the color. Maybe I will purchase them again at a later time.
However, I wasn't sold completely because I was still worried that after a day of wearing these that they would start to hurt my face, as this is what happens most of the time. Well, they don't! In fact, I forgot I was wearing them multiple times! They are SO lightweight that I can't even feel them. Then when I saw my reflection I thought, "Who is that cool kid looking back at me?!" I think I might actually like these more than the 3309 that I was previously wearing. Even those hurt my face after wearing them for an extended period of time.
Thank you Ray Ban for finally coming out with a suitable replacement for the 3309's, and thank you Sunglass Hut for providing the Home Try On Program and making returns so easy.
