Fashion-conscious women make the choice between looking fashionable and having safe, healthy eyes every day, often compromising in one direction or the other or carrying more than one pair of glasses. Fortunately, they don’t have to compromise anymore. With the Edge Civetta and Edge Aurora safety sunglasses glasses lines, women can now have the best of both worlds.
The Edge Civetta and Edge Aurora combine the fashion of big sunglasses with high safety standards. In addition, they’re comfortable and come in a variety of lens options and frame colors. Plus, they’re very affordable.
All Edge Civetta and Edge Aurora safety sunglasses meet ANSI Z87.1 safety standards for high mass impact, ball drop impact and high velocity impact. In addition, they also meet Military Ballistic MCEPS GL-PD 10-12 standards, which means they are designed to provide impact protection beyond typical industrial safety standards.
Comfort & Fit
Edge Civetta and Edge Aurora safety sunglasses have a comfortable fit, and they don’t slip down the nose, sit on cheekbones or touch eyelashes. Also, they do not have any rubber pieces, so they won’t get caught in hair. The nose pads and temple tips are soft and pliable, adding to the comfortable fit.
Because of the straight-temple design, these glasses sit very close to the face and even against the temple a bit. However, the pressure is minimal and not at all uncomfortable. For those who prefer the more open fit and look of sport sunglasses, the Edge Civetta and Edge Aurora may not be the right choice. However, keep in mind that the close fit does provide extra protection by not allowing much room for foreign objects to make their way to the eye through the sides, top or bottom of the glasses.
Frame Features & Options
The frames on the Edge Civetta and Edge Aurora provide a smooth wrap-around fit for the temples. In addition, they are lightweight and also make a fashion statement for those who like the look of over-sized sunglasses.
