Randolph Sunglasses are quality frames and lenses that will protect your eyes!

They may be great fashion accessories but, more importantly, sunglasses are of extreme importance when it comes to maintaining good eye health.  Randolph Eyewear is a company that knows about eye care.  They are a United States based company that makes sunglasses for the U.S. military in their factory by hand.

Dr. Kerry Beebe, O.D., gives his patients two reasons – health and comfort — when explaining why they should wear sunglasses.
“From a health standpoint, you want to keep all ultraviolet light from getting into your eyes and onto the lids and the skin around them,” said Beebe, “From a comfort standpoint, some people are very sensitive to brightness and glare. By cutting down brightness and glare, people will visually perform better and be more comfortable.”
Beebe said sunglasses protect the eyes from painful sunburns and may help slow down cataracts and macular degeneration. Also, the skin around the eyes, including the lids, is one of the most prone to skin cancer.
“So certainly protecting the skin around the eyes with UV-filtering sunglasses is a good way to prevent skin cancer in that area,” he said.
From a comfort standpoint, polarized lenses are the most effective lenses for blocking glare. However, they can be inhibitive to people playing outdoor sports like golf.
Although buying sunglasses from a doctor’s office is the best guarantee of getting a pair of sunglasses that are effective in protecting eyes from ultraviolet rays, some low-cost sunglasses are now carrying optometric “seals of acceptance,” which guarantee their effectiveness.
“You don’t necessarily have to have the expensive glasses to block out UV rays,” Beebe said. “A lot of times the expense comes from the quality of the frames and the optics of the lens. Some lenses are optically ground and are much more distortion free than other glasses that have more of pressed lens where there may be more distortion.”

Reasons to Wear Sunglasses
1.) UV Protection. The sun's UV radiation can cause cataracts; benign growths on the eye's surface, sometimes called snow blindness, which is a temporary but painful sunburn of the eye's surface. Wide-brimmed hats and caps can block about 50 percent of UV radiation from the eyes but optometrists say that is not enough protection.
2.) Blue-Light Protection. Long-term exposure to the blue and violet portion of the solar spectrum has been implicated as a risk factor formacular degeneration, especially for individuals that are “sun sensitive.”
3.) Comfortable vision. The sun's brightness and glare interferes with comfortable vision and the ability to see clearly by causing people to squint and the eyes to water.
4.) Dark adaptation. Spending just two or three hours in bright sunlight can hamper the eyes' ability to adapt quickly to nighttime or indoor light levels. This can make driving at night after spending a day in the sun more hazardous.
5.) Skin Cancer. Cancer of the eyelids and skin around the eyes is more common than people think. People should wear sunglasses outdoors whether they are working, driving, participating in sports, taking a walk, running errands or doing anything in the sun.
Five Tips for Healthy Eyes
1.) Wear protective eyewear any time your eyes are exposed to UV light, even on cloudy days and during winter months.
2.) Look for quality sunglasses that offer good protection. Sunglasses should block out 99 to 100 percent of both UVA and UVB radiation and screen out 75 to 90 percent of visible light.
3.) Check to make sure your sunglass lenses are perfectly matched in color and free of distortions and imperfections.
4.) Purchase gray-colored lenses. They reduce light intensity without altering the color of objects, providing the most natural color vision.  A great brand is Randolph Eyewear.  They have lenses in all different colors, including grey, specifically tailored to the kind of sun exposure you encounter the most.  
5.) Don’t forget protection for children and teenagers. They typically spend more time in the sun than adults.

Randolph Review - Real Customer Review

In my lifetime, I have owned approximately 1,473 pairs of sunglasses.  Ok, that may be a SLIGHT exaggeration, but still not TOO far off.  When I think back to the sunglasses I have owned, it is a blur of cheap plastic, “chrome” frames, and lenses made of who knows what that seemed to scratch every time my eyelashes brush against them.  I have had lenses mysteriously just pop out of their frames and ear pieces break at the slightest gust of wind.  I have witnessed sunglasses mysteriously disappearing after falling beneath the seat of my car, and felt guilt ridden at the realization that I left them sitting in a bathroom somewhere I will undoubtedly never visit again.
All of these experiences are the both the cause and result of purchasing very poor sunglasses over the years of my life.  My thinking was that if my sunglasses were just going to break or get lost, why would I want to invest any real money in them?  And since I didn’t have any real money invested in them, I didn’t care enough about them to take the actions necessary to keep them from getting broken or lost.  I was stuck in an endless cycle of terrible sunglasses.
Growing up, I was always enamored with my father’s sunglasses.  I still remember sneaking into his bedroom to put on his gold-rimmed aviators that he kept in a leather pouch complete with a cleaning clothe.  Of course, the lenses completely covered my round, chubby face, but I thought I looked like one of the Blue Angels Pilots every time I looked in the mirror.
Even now as an adult, I have struggled with the idea of spending more than $25 on any pair of sunglasses.  The fear of losing or breaking them was still fresh in my mind, so I tended to stick with buying my sunglasses at places like gas stations and Walmart.
If you are a regular reader of this site, you know what comes next.  I make a comment about the importance of quality and not quantity.  I may make mention about the fact that I have probably spent at least $200 over the past couple years on multiple pairs of sunglasses that were lost or broken because of my own oversight and lack of concern because I only see them as a $15 pair of sunglasses that aren’t going to cause me to go into financial ruin if they were to somehow become unwearable.
But that’s not what you are reading this for.  You are reading this article because I promised to talk about Randolph Engineering Sunglasses, so let’s get on to that.
Randolph Engineering probably has one of the greatest mission statements I have seen.  It states their mission as:
  • To define, produce and deliver the world’s finest eyeware
  • To stand as the example by which others are considered.
  • To value our human resource, our community, our clients and our customers as equals.
  • To exemplify world-class service, integrity and quality in every aspect of our business.
Through the process of reviewing their products, I can say that Randolph has upheld their mission with great diligence.  They were kind enough to send me a pair of their P3 Sunglasses that I have grown to love in a way I didn’t know a man could love sunglasses.  Matt feels the same way about the pair of Concorde Aviators he received.


Upon first receiving them, we both had apprehensions about wearing them often because of our past experiences with cheap sunglasses.  We were terrified of breaking or losing these awesome shades because that’s all we have ever known.  But as we got over that fear, we realized something: These bad boys were not going to break. Everything about these sunglasses scream quality.  After consistent wearing for over 1 month, there has been zero sign of any type of wear or tear on either pair of glasses.
