Did you know one of the best ways to take care of your eyes is simply putting on a pair of shades? Summer can be the worst on your eyes and we're not just talking about brighter, sunnier days. A good pair of shades will not only cut down the glare, but will also protect your eyes from harmful UV light.

You can never go wrong with a pair of aviators and a big, oversized pair will always do the trick. Salt's Tompkins ($460) looks great with its classic gold combo and the beta titanium frame keeps things lightweight and comfortable. 

Also check out the American Optical Original Pilot ($84) for an affordable classic or the tried and true Ray-Ban Aviator ($150-$200)

If you tend to lose your shades or you just can't commit to a pricier frame, Sunski's Dipseas ($55) is the perfect option. What you get with these is a great pair of frames at a reasonable price and you also get glare-cutting polarized lenses without the premium price.

Barton Perreira's Ascot ($395) is one of those frames that will never go out of style and that acetate finish is truly something to behold. Classic keyhole nosebridge, vintage green lenses, and Japanese construction. Need we say more?

No sunglass list is complete without a pair of Ditas in the mix. Their new Aristocrat ($750) for Summer '15 is a classic half-rim silhouette with a titanium frame and earstems that are decorated with a pressed diamond pattern.

A big, blocky pair of black sunglasses belongs in every guys wardrobe. Warby Parker's Ingram ($95) is sleek, boxy, and low-profile for those of you who want to just fly under the radar. 

Han Kjobenhavn's Wolfgang sunglasses ($126) is another stealthy frame without all the pomp and circumstance.
