The brand Costa Del Mar was founded in 1983 in Daytona Beach, Florida. Costa rose to recognition by being official gear for the America’s Cup yacht racing contest. The superior glare protection of Costa lenses is useful when boating, fishing, surfing or spending daylight hours on or near open water. Polarized eyewear also blocks glare while driving. Here are the five of the best prescription sunglasses to wear this year.
Costa Cat Cay Prescription Kayaking Sunglasses
Cat Cay sunglasses by Costa are prescription-ready performance fishing sunglasses. The wide rectangular 580 lenses in these frames provide complete coverage from glare and ultraviolet rays.
Cat Cay frames feature a patented ventilation system and are available with plano or prescription lenses with options for a polarized or mirrored finish. Cat Cay frames are only suitable for wearers who have sphere and cylinder measurements in excess of +3.00 to -5.00 or whose cylinder measurement exceeds -3.00.
Saltbreak Prescription Hunting Costa Sunglasses
The Saltbreak sunglasses by Costa are sleek and fitted rectangular sunglasses. This wrap-around style provides complete coverage and is available with lens colors that enhance targets for hunting or other outdoor activities.
These full-rim nylon men’s sunglasses are wider than the Cat Cay frames, with a total frame width of 127.9 mm. In addition to hunting, this eyewear with your choice of lens tint colors and standard, polarized or mirrored finishes are suitable for a wide range of sports or casual wear.
Costa Fantail Prescription Golf Sunglasses
Fantail frames by Costa have thick plastic rims, a rubberized nosepiece and accent grip temples for a secure fit. This style is a slightly smaller version of the Costa Blackfin sunglasses frames. These sunglasses are suitable for golf and fishing, like many styles from Costa.
As with the other styles on this list, these frames accommodate the same range of lens powers as the Cat Cat and Saltbreak. If you need high-RX sunglasses, browse a large selection of compatible frames.
Costa Cheeca Prescription Golf Sunglasses
The Cheeca sunglasses by Costa are a square-shaped women’s style. The total width of these Wayfarer-style frames is 138 millimeters. Check the bridge, lens and temple measurements to ensure a good fit.
Costa Cheeca sunglasses are available with glass or plastic blue, gray or green plano lenses or custom prescription lenses in the same range as the other featured styles.
Costa Victoria Womens Prescription Sunglasses
Costa makes sunglasses frames in a variety of shapes. The round, cat-eye styled Victoria sunglasses style can be a good alternative to square and rectangular frames for people with angular face shapes.
Victoria frames are made of 100% recycled fishing nets and feature unique textured lower rims. This sunglass style is available with glass lenses in shades such as blue, copper silver and gray.
Costa polarized eyewear rose to popularity in the yacht racing scene back in the 1980s and is still popular among watersports enthusiasts today. The brand Costa Del Mar is now a wholly owned subsidiary of EssilorLuxottica. Browse a large selection of prescription-ready Costa sunglasses for men and women at Safety Gear Pro.
