Do Eagle Eyes Sunglasses really work?If you’ve been looking for a good pair of sunglasses at a reasonable price, you no doubt took an interest in Eagle Eyes Sunglasses. The television spots make it seem like you’ll see a whole new world when you put them on. They also bring up the concept of using NASA-based technology in the lenses. But is it all hype, or do they really work?

Sunglass manufacturers have been trying to design and develop better eyewear for many decades now, but just in last two has there been moderately priced glasses that are able to drastically reduce the amount of glare from the sun. The most well-known of these is BluBlockers, which ran television ads for many years in the 1990’s.

Since then there has been several different brands to enter the market of sunglasses advertised on TV,Eagle Eyes Sunglasses being one of them.

The Claim
The biggest claim that the makers of Eagle Eye Sunglasses make is that they are using space age technology developed by NASA in their eyewear.

The Hype
The hype is that these sunglasses will make a striking difference to what you can and can’t see, and that they will be way better than ordinary sunglasses.

The Cost
Even though they seem like they are simply a sold-on-TV product, there’s actually an entire line of models that you can buy. If you buy direct from the website you can look to spend about $40 for their lowest-priced pair, all the way up to $100 for a titanium framed model.

The Commitment
If you’re already used to wearing sunglasses outdoors, then you won’t need to do much to your lifestyle to accommodate Eagle Eyes Sunglasses. Just replace your current pair with them when they arrive.

If you currently don’t wear sunglasses, or don’t have a pair, but recognize the need to protect your eyes from the sun’s rays, you will need to get used to bringing them with you everywhere you go, and to put them on instead of squinting in the sun.

When put to the test against standard sunglasses, the Eagle Eyes gave relatively the same improvement in vision in sunny conditions. It also gave everything a yellowness, which regular lenses don’t do. If you think that you’d prefer a yellow, but less darkened view of the world, you would probably prefer them over conventional sunglasses.
However, if you feel that you wouldn’t be able to seeing the world with a yellow hue to everything, then you should stick with a regular pair.

As far as quality goes, and whether you buy into the hype of NASA technology, you may still want to use them and just get used to their yellow nature. It’s impossible to determine whether or not they are effective at blocking the UV and Blue-light that they claim.

On their website they have a pretty good-looking blue-light test that makes them appear to be rather effective. How this translates to actually using them and having better vision in real-world scenarios is yet to be determined.

Do Eagle Eyes Sunglasses Really Work?

They do provide a good level of protection from the sun for your eyes. The Eagle Eyes Sunglasses may not live up to the expectations set by their advertisements, or the claims made, but as far as making a giant improvement in your vision they are pretty much the same a normal pair.

It is up to you whether you want to believe the claim that they are using NASA-developed technology. It is our impression that they wouldn’t be authorized to use the NASA name on their site and in their ads. They don’t use the logo, but we think NASA would have filed a complaint by now if the claim wasn’t true.

Our Recommendation
If you need a pair of sunglasses, or your current pair just aren’t measuring up, you can get a pair of Eagle Eyes Sunglasses and be relatively happy with their performance. They are not super cheap, and you can pick up a pair of HD Vision Ultras for about half the price.

110 Customer Reviews on “Do Eagle Eyes Sunglasses Really Work?

  1. I have several pairs of these glasses. I was looking to purchase several more for the holidays. I called customer service and it was a horrible experience. They said “upper management” would contact me in 24 to 48 hours..NEVER happened. Glasses are OK…Customer service…HORRIBLE…Go to your local mall and support the local economy of your community.

  2. So the TL;DR of this “review” is “we didn’t do any research more than watching a commercial and skimming their website so, meh, maybe?”
    This page is wasting valuable kilobytes of data on the internet.

  3. Stupid review. It should be pretty easy to verify or not, whether NASA had anything to do with their development. Also, any review of sunglasses should consult an optician who could certainly give worthwhile opinion of how they affect vision, or protect from the sun.
    Otherwise you’re just anybody saying they’re as good as any other sunglasses. Don’t bother. We all sort of figure at least that much.

  4. I first tried Eagle Eye back in the 90’s when I seen them advertised on TV and I loved them. In 2009 I had Shingles in my eye which left me with a scare on my eye and a dry eye from nerve damage. After that I was very light sensitive, especially in the sun and with glare. I remembered Eagle Eyes and ordered a pair. WOW, helped every way possible, clearer vision, way less glare, less eye strain, I don’t notice the yellow color, etc. Using dark glasses now is just that, makes everything seem dark, dim and reduce my vision. I was telling my eye doctor about it when during a check up. He told me it made sense, since scare on my eye defuses the light that hits it and causes glare making me more sensitive to lights and glare. He added the blue light is the major light that causes glare and yellow filters blue light. Just broke my last pair on vacation last week – they lasted five plus years of every day use, bouncing around on my dashboard, and a active life style. Will be ordering new ones right after I finish this review! I can’t give you any quantifying numbers, but I can swear they really help me and I’m staying with and recommending Eagle Eye to all my friends. You are going to buy sunglasses anyway, so try something new that may just add to your life. PS: The review at the top of the page sucks.

  5. I totallt agree with Jim. I have tried all kinds of sunglasses, usually high end stuff.

    I must say that the eagles eyes have been the most profound experience in sunglasses.

    First off, yes they will turn the whole world yellow. So if you have to distinguish between subtle differences in green and blue, these are not the sunglasses you want.

    But if you are in a very bright and glaring environment, say in snow, water or a very slight overcast, where the whole sky is bright white, like a giant light box, then these lenses are amazing.

    They will completely remove the glare, and at the same time make everything brighter and clearer. It sounds like a paradox, that they at the same time both makes everything seems brighter AND our eyes is completely relieved, but is my experience. As they also filter the blue light away, the image is also crisper and sharper.

    That combined with the polarization is quite simply the best lenses I have ever tried.

  6. I have tried many sunglasses of all types and I got my first pair of Eagle Eyes several years ago. They cut the glare, make everything brighter and clearer and the color contrast is really vivid. They are the ONLY glasses that cut the reflection from the dash board up into the windshield when I am driving, which is a big concern for me. It’s dangerous not to be able to see clearly when you are driving.

  7. This review is worthless – not a single quantitative measure of the sunglasses’ effectiveness in reducing UV or blue light transmission. I can’t use the review for anything! … Blue light reduction is said to be needed for people with IOLs (Intraocular lens replacements) to prevent retinal damage, so some sort of measured values are important. If you can, please do some measurements and comparisons with other measured values and standards or criteria.

  8. Hi
    I purcbased a pair of eagle eyes for my husband in Dec 2013. It is the best pair of sunglasses
    He as owned. The yellowness is not a big deal and I really don’t care where the tech comes from, they work and that’s most important.
    I’m off to get me a pair today. They don’t only work in sunny conditions; but in ay weather.
    Well done!

  9. This review is horrible! If you did the slightest bit of research on eagle eye sunglasses then you would know that NASA developed the technology and licensed it to eagle eyes sunglasses.

  10. After reading your review about the Eagle Eyes Sunglasses I decided to purchase a pair, I went for the cheaper model in order to try them out. They work fine, they look really good but I am yet to get used to the yellowness, I use them outside most of the time but I don´t use them to drive.
