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. There is HUGE difference between eagle eyes and standard glasses, dare I say better than Raybans/Police or any other bigger brands…and this is not just my own personal experience but almost anyone who has tried.

    for e.g. My uncle is a landscaper/gardener, he saw me wearing them once and asked if he could borrow it/try it on, I didn’t give him any of the NASA spiel etc…so no placebo effect….as soon as he put on his first comments were “WOW, they give this kind of strange cooling effect on my eyes, what are these? where did you get them from”….

    In Australia we have very intense sunlight and glare during clear skies peak summers, these glasses allowed me to see into the water that was glaring white, I could actually see fish probably a couple of meters deep….on long drives I could differentiate between the different hues of green on the pastures/rolling meadows….

    It seems like everything is color corrected using photoshop, a normal pair simply darken everything, while eagle eyes clears your vision….the ONLY color that seemed off to me was the blue sky…it looked almost greyish.

    I am sorry but I agree with all the other commentators….very lousy review.

    I broke my eagle eyes from a couple of years ago, its a big hassle buying these are they are not available for shipping to australia… so I tried a lot of knockoffs and even a rayban gift…none of them compare…the ONLy pair that were “similar but crapper” were the HDultras you mentioned.

    HD Ultras feel similar to the eagle eyes lowlight, in daytime they are too lightly coated to give enough protection, in night time they don’t compare as well…around the evening time is when they were of best use….lowlight…but they simpy dont match up to par…

    If you are strapped for cash…you can get Eagle Astros for $34.95 which I definitely consider as cheap compared to any name brands and for the quality it is. but I am personally going for the 3-in 1…as I was looking for a good pair of bluelight glasses for my heavy computer screens usage.

  2. Scott Lovelady & Josh… may want to do your own research. NASA did not and does not license the technology to Eagle Eyes. Even the Eagle Eye website states “Developed from Original NASA Optic Technology”. Who knows what technology they used or use and how dated it is. Eagle eyes claim they are “Certified by the Space Foundation for UV and Blue Light Eye Protection”. The space foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, with revenues primarily provided by individual, foundation and corporate donations; corporate memberships; events fees; product sales; and fees for service. Nothing about NASA. Eagle Eyes pays a fee to be a member and be certified. Its pay for play which is not necessarily a bad thing but it’s certainly not NASA. As for myriad of benefits attributed to their TriLenium® lenses, where is the proof? Are they ISO / UL / ANSI / ASQC compliant or certified? Are they 21 CFR 801.410 compliant? If so Eagle Eyes should post the independent lab results validating their claims and proof that they have met the standards above.

  3. I’ve had 3 pairs off eagle eye sunglasses now and they definitely do improve vision in bright sunshine.
    I work as a window cleaner and these are ideal, i can feel my eyes squinting less with the bright reflecting sun in the spring and summer months and always wear them when the sun’s out, admittedly not often enough here in the UK.
    Couple of downsides, firsly after some regular use you can get some noticable tan lines, but suppose that means they are keeping out the harmful UV. Secondly, build quality not that great, with one polarised pair looking scratched within a few weeks and the plastic type lenses can crack quite easily.
    Overall would recommend.

  4. I agree with your customer service (or lack of customer service) observation. I asked for eagle eyes glasses for my one xmas gift for 2016. I even paid an extra $10 for shipping & handling so the glasses would arrive within 2 days of the order.

    Well, … about 2 weeks later and by accident the glasses arrive in xmas-eve mail. At least the glasses arrived, albeit damaged.

    So, the day after xmas, I contacted the worthless customer service. These people are either incompetent or liars or both. I’m not sure what I’m going to do? I may just send the entire order back, if I can not get some resolution soon? The customer service … I don’t know … totally worthless ….

    The representatives are nice and agree with everything you say. But, their actions do not support their words. I believe actions speak louder than words. Thus far, I’m not happy with the customer service. I’ll give it a few more days, if no resolution to my issue, I’m sending everything back – sad because I thought I liked the product.

  5. I have to agree. I found statements such as these complete bunk:
    “It’s impossible to determine whether or not they are effective at blocking the UV and Blue-light that they claim.”

    “It is up to you whether you want to believe the claim that they are using NASA-developed technology”

    If you’re going to do a review, do a little research. This is an empty review with no substantive data and too many empty assertions.

  6. I couldn’t agree more; horrible review. Was it written by a child?
    Several misspelled words, and wrong words, that did not make reading it any easier.
    Are the rest of the reviews this bad on this website?
    I seems like a bad copy of

  7. I have worn Eagle Eyes Sunglasses for over 10 years. They are excellent for me. I have a yellow pair for nighttime driving (they cut the glare down to nothing, and I can handle my nighttime driving without any issues, no matter what other drivers’ headlights may do (and especially with those blue-tinged nighttime headlights that I used to find so annoying? Not a problem with my yellow-lenses pair).

    I have had maybe 4 pairs over the many years, and these glasses are the only glases I will wear for daytime/nighttime while behind the wheel. They perform very, very well.

    Also, if I may add? Your review lacks the experience of someone who has actually worn the lense while driving.

  8. Shame on you for being too lazy to do such a lackadaisical review. If you know what lackadaisical means.

  9. I have been using Eagle Eyes for over 6 years now, after trying several types before, these are the best, cut glare, clarify field of vision, etc. etc.
    Your review lacks sense, seems it is based on simple antagonism, not scientific minded.

  10. I’ve been using Eagle Eyes since the day I first put on a pair…8 years ago. I do a lot of driving and these work in sunny conditions reducing glare so much that one doesn’t realize just how much until you remove them for a moment, plus in rainy season it cuts down on the overspray from vehicles allowing one to see through it better. The yellowness goes away after a few moments- you get used to it, and then you get to enjoy the vibrant colors of everything around you. They even light up shadows, allowing one to see into the darkness. No windshield glare…it’s no wonder Police wear these, keeps surprizes from happening. The HD glasses were okay, but lenses scratch really easily…so saving a few bucks…not really.
