Lyon Sunglasses Review for Men and Women
With an easygoing, rectangular frame, the glasses balance your facial angles and make them look slim and long. Lyon’s style resembles the ‘Bug-eye’ design of eyewear as it sits snugly on your face while resting comfortably against your cheeks. Featuring a minimal and clean design while enhancing your look with a supreme demeanor, Lyon are your go-to sunglasses for every event.
Warby Parker steers clear of a standard nose bridge in this collection. This unique characteristic makes Lyon stand out. Built-in nose pads offer enhanced support and ease. With an increased surface, the curved pads gently adhere to the shape of your nose with no pressure. Broader lenses provide a clear end-to-end view. While rectangular frames go well with round and oval faces, the series comes in a medium fit, making it suitable for almost all face shapes.
Like most eyewear brands, measurements for Warby Parker glasses can be found on the inside of the temple arm. There you’ll find lens width (52 mm), bridge (17 mm), and temple length (140 mm). If you already have a pair that you like, you can compare it to those measurements.
- Frame width 136 mm: The horizontal diameter of the full frame width, and it’s the primary way we determine fit. (Note: You will not find this number on your glasses.)
- Lens width 52 mm: The horizontal diameter of one lens.
- Bridge 17 mm: The width of the bridge section.
- Temple length 140 mm: The length of the entire temple arm, from the front of the frame to the tip.
- Made from hand-polished cellulose acetate
- Akulon-coated screws for durability
- Prescription lenses are made from polycarbonate, the most impact-resistant material for sunglasses; non-prescription lenses are made from CR-39 for maximum clarity and color
- Includes scratch-resistant lenses that block 100% of UV rays
