In 1983, the city of Daytona Beach, in the state of Florida, became the birthplace of the brand Costa Del Mar. The official gear of America’s Cup yacht racing competition contributed significantly to Costa’s rise to prominence. When boating, fishing, surfing, or spending daylight hours on or near open water, it is beneficial to wear Costa lenses because of their superior glare protection. When driving, polarised eyewear is another effective way to block glare. The following are the five pairs of prescription Costa sunglasses considered the best to wear this year.
Costa Cat Cay Prescription Kayaking Sunglasses
Costa’s Cat Cay sunglasses are performance fishing sunglasses that can accommodate prescription lenses. These frames feature wide, rectangular 580 lenses that offer comprehensive protection against glare and ultraviolet rays. In addition, the frames of Cat Cay sunglasses have a patented ventilation system. They are available with either Plano or prescription lenses, with additional options for a mirrored or polarised finish. The sphere and cylinder measurements of the wearer must be greater than +3.00 to -5.00, and the wearer’s cylinder measurement must be greater than -3.00 for Cat Cay frames to be suitable for them.
Saltbreak Prescription Hunting Costa Sunglasses
The Saltbreak sunglasses by Costa are a fashionable pair of rectangular sunglasses with a fitted and sleek design. This wrap-around style offers complete protection and is offered in lens colors that improve the visibility of targets when hunting or participating in other outdoor activities. The total width of the frame on these men’s full-rim sunglasses made of nylon is 127.9 millimeters, making them significantly wider than the Cat Cay frames. This eyewear can be used for a wide variety of sports and casual situations in addition to hunting due to the customizable lens tint colors, standard, polarised, or mirrored finishes, and the fact that you can choose which you prefer.
Costa Fantail Prescription Golf Sunglasses
Fantail frames by Costa feature a rubberized nosepiece, thick plastic rims, and accent grip temples to ensure a comfortable and secure fit. The frames of the Costa Blackfin sunglasses come in this style: a slightly scaled-down version. These sunglasses, like many other styles offered by Costa, are suitable enough to be used for golf and fishing. In addition, these frames can accommodate the same range of lens powers as the Cat Cay and the Saltbreak, just like the rest of the styles on this list.

Costa Cheeca Prescription Golf Sunglasses
The Cheeca sunglasses by Costa have a square style and are designed specifically for women. These frames have a total width of 138 millimeters and are designed in the Wayfarer style. Measure the bridge, the lens, and the temples to make sure the glasses are a good fit. Glass or plastic lenses in blue, grey, or green Plano, as well as custom prescription lenses, are all available for the Costa Cheeca sunglasses, which fall within the same price range as the other featured styles.
Costa Victoria Women Prescription Sunglasses
The sunglasses frames that Costa produces come in several different shapes. People with angular face shapes may find that the round Victoria sunglasses style with a cat-eye shape is a more flattering choice for their face than square or rectangular frames. The Victoria frames are distinguished by their one-of-a-kind textured lower rims and are crafted from fishing nets that have been recycled in their entirety. This particular style of sunglasses is offered with glass lenses in various colors, including blue, copper, silver, and grey.
The 1980s saw the beginning of Costa’s ascent to prominence in yacht racing. The brand’s polarised eyewear continues to enjoy a strong following among those participating in water sports today. The eyewear manufacturer Essilor Luxottica has completed its acquisition of 100% of the shares in the Costa Del Mar brand. At Safety Gear Pro, we carry various Costa sunglasses compatible with prescription lenses for both men and women.
