Sunglasses have gone High-Def, and for the low price of $10.
They are called HD Vision Aviators.
Typical sunglasses cut down on the light hitting your eyes. The HD Vision Aviators are not made to cut down the light. They claim to help you see more in the light.
But would the HD Aviators get grounded in our As Seen On TV Test?
We compared the $10 HD Aviators, a pair of generic $10 sunglasses and a $130 pair of Ray Bans.
In the test, the Ray Bans were much better than the generic sunglasses. But the HD Aviators did better than the Ray Bans. It may not have been a fair comparison, since it was overcast outside during the test.
Joel McFarlin wore the HD Aviators for a few weeks to get a better comparison.
Joel said, "They're not too bad. In the sun, they tend to be a little brighter than I am used to. On a really cloudy overcast day they work really well. On a sunny day, I prefer my Ray Bans. With the Aviators I tend to squint more. My eyes don't get used to them as quickly as the Ray Bans."
Joel said, "I can definitely see a lot better on an overcast day with the aviators versus my Ray Bans. For $10 it's really worth trying for yourself, honestly."
So the consensus on the HD Aviators is that they actually work better on overcast of partly sunny days. For $10, they really do a good job of bringing clarity to your line of sight, and for that kind of money, it is not a bad deal. We will give it the thumbs up.
I did wear these out on some sunny days and, after my eyes adjusted to the light, they seemed to work pretty well.
I do prefer glasses that darken the sunlight, however.
The HD Aviators are sold in several of stores and all over the internet.
