Sunglasses for Fishing and Outdoors

If you enjoy fishing in your free time, or you fish professionally, you know the importance of a good eye. A great pair of sunglasses can elevate your ability to see sharply, and thus, catch your dinner. If you’re in the market for a new pair of sunglasses to reduce glare, enhance your ability to see beyond the water surface and improve your fishing game, look no further than Hakim Optical: we have the best sunglasses for fishing and outdoors. 

Proper Prescription and Fitting 

The most important thing to consider when purchasing sunglasses for fishing and being outdoors is finding the perfect fit. The perfect fit refers to both your prescription and the literal way the sunglasses fit on your face. 

Having your eyes examined first to get the perfect prescription is a must, and then, once you have your prescription filled, allow an optician to ensure they fit you properly. Even if you don’t need a prescription and you’re just wearing sunglasses for protection, making sure they fit and won’t fly off when you cast is the best way to ensure you won’t lose your specs while fishing. 

Photochromic Lenses 

Photochromic or transition lenses will react and adjust to the light throughout the day while you’re fishing. These are great option for sunglasses when fishing and being outdoors. This allows you to wear your sunglasses at all times of the day without risking vision impairment. Whether you’re fishing at 5 AM, noon, or 5 PM, you know that you’re getting the best protection and best vision possible. 

Polarized Lenses

Polarized lenses reduce the glare coming from the sun and bouncing off the water, and they also protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. If you enjoy fishing or being outdoors often, polarized sunglasses may be for you. Even on the sunniest days, your eyes will not be affected or harmed by the sun’s glare, giving you the focus and precision you need to fish abundantly. 

Blue-Tinted Glasses 

Another way to prevent glare and reduce distraction while fishing–especially if you’re not interested in wearing full-coverage sunglasses all day–is to invest in a pair of blue-tinted glasses. These will help to reduce the glare coming from the water, improve your vision, and reduce eye strain, giving you the ability to really focus on catching the biggest and best fish you can.

Regardless of your gender, complexion, hair colour, or face shape, these gorgeous BLING frames should be on your go-to fall frames list. Oversized, round, and statement-making screams autumn personality! These gorgeous gold, rounded frames with delicate sparkling arms remind us of the golds and the elegance of autumn. Dress these frames up with a more extravagant outfit for a night on the town, or dress them down with a pair of leggings and boots. Wherever you choose to wear them, you’ll find you’re bringing the beauty of fall into your style.


Bring back the beauty of the autumns of yesteryear with these gorgeous vintage-inspired IVORY frames. These warm-toned, half-gold and half-clear frames aren’t just beautiful and eye-catching, they’re classics! Just like watching a spooky movie or carving pumpkins, these glasses scream “autumn”! We recommend these frames for those who have a vintage aesthetic that they’d like to match, or for those who are ready to set a modern-meets-classic trend. Find your own unique style this fall with these gorgeous IVORY frames or a pair just like them at Hakim Optical!
