A great pair of sunglasses can be a game-changer for your entire outfit—and your day. Leaving them behind can mean setting yourself up for hours of squinting and headaches, no matter if you’re at the beach, exploring a sunny new town, or simply out on an afternoon walk. Being in the sun unprotected—be it your skin or eyes—can pose serious health risks. While sunglasses are no doubt stylish, they’re also essential for maintaining eye health.

We’ve entered peak sunglasses season so if you’re ready to invest but don’t know where to look (or have lost your favorite pair for the 30th time), we’ve got you covered. Whether you want classic aviators, a budget-friendly pick, or something with more lens strength, these retailers have no shortage of shades to choose from.

Below, check out the 10 best places to get sunglasses online and welcome summer in style.

EyeBuyDirect makes it easy to find your perfect frames. Like many online-only retailers, it keeps its prices low because it doesn't need to allocate any resources to brick-and-mortar stores. You also have the opportunity to exchange your frames once within a year timeframe if you notice any defects.

One reviewer notes how, like Lays chips, you can’t have just one pair of EyeBuyDirect sunglasses: “Eyewear is an easy style hack, it works even when my hair doesn't, it fits me even when my Spanx fail, and online buying has made it more affordable than shoes. I officially have more eyeglasses than shoes right now because EyeBuyDirect’s price point makes it too easy to buy more than one pair, and it doesn't cause blisters.” I can confirm—the moment I sat down to buy a single pair of frames, I ended up adding four to my cart because each style had something unique to offer, be it the lens shade, prescription or frame material.

With more than 2,500 stunning styles to choose from at an average price point of $40, there’s a frame (or two! Or three!) for everyone at Zenni. It took me a full hour to choose which ones I wanted since each style was a very viable contender. The cat-eye frames I ordered looked even more high-quality and old-school Hollywood in person. Each basic pair includes an anti-scratch coating and U.V. protection, but you can add on more features like blue light blockers. The durable tri-fold sunglasses cases are absolutely worth the added cost if you’ll be taking your sunglasses on and off throughout the day and need a safe place to set them down.

I have a confession to make: when I first signed up for FabFitFun, I was thrilled to see a gradient-tinted pair of Quay aviators; they suit me so well I was inspired to sign up for the delivery service for a whole year. Much to my dismay, that was the last pair I received, but it certainly won’t be the last anymore. Quay offers a healthy balance of refined and elegant sunnies and playfully whimsical frames. The virtual try-on feature makes it easy to find the perfect pair, no matter your face shape. Not sure what you’re looking for? Allow the trending section to guide you towards what’s hot or not.

If you were to close your eyes, randomly point your finger at a pair of sunglasses on Nordstrom, then opened your eyes, you’d find top-notch quality and style no matter which pair you landed on. Though Nordstrom is known to carry only the highest-end brands like Celine and Gucci, offerings from Anna Sui, Salvatore Ferragamo and Fendi are equally impressive at a more accessible price point. When searching for frames, narrow down by face shape, lens treatment (like polarized or blue light blocking), lens width, material, and other specifications.

If you don’t have the patience to sift through thousands of sunglasses, you’ll love browsing Maui Jim’s solid collection of 125 pairs. The Hawaii-based brand celebrates surf culture through its laid-back designs and high-performing technology. Each pair is 100 percent polarized, which cuts glare and enhances color. I’ve been looking for the perfect pair of paparazzi-worthy bulky shades for years, but could never find a pair that didn’t make me look like a bug. The Jasmines perfectly balance a larger lens with a gentle, feminine color and feel so light on my face I often forget I’m wearing them. Thanks to their pink-ish hue, the shades help me see the world through rose-tinted glasses in more ways than one.

Bloomingdale's is interesting because its navigation system acts as a sort of concierge. It’s unusual to find such specifications as frame fit but there are options under $200, and premium designers that range from Dior and Tom Ford to more affordable mid-tier brands like Tory Burch and Kate Spade. With nearly 1,400 styles to choose from in a way that doesn’t feel daunting, it’s the kind of sunglasses shopping experience you’ve always wanted but never knew you needed.
