Where can I find cheap sunglasses?

A high price isn’t necessarily a guarantee of high-quality. Sometimes, you’re paying for the name on the product over the actual integrity of its manufacturing.

But just as it’s possible to find mediocre glasses that cost a fortune, it’s also possible to find a rare gem at a bargain. Like Aladdin in the Cave of Wonders.

We’re not Aladdin, but the team at Horus X are pretty magical at putting together guides, that’s why we’ve compiled this list of inexpensive sunglasses that are also high-quality. And we didn’t have to ask a Genie to do it.

This way, you can find the perfect pair of stylish, high-quality sunglasses that will effectively protect your eyes from UV rays without making your accountant cry.

Horus X sunglasses: High-quality at smart prices

Every pair of sunglasses in this section adheres to the benchmark in good glasses quality. That means they are all category 3 sunglasses which feature anti-reflective lenses with UV400 protection.

Don’t forget to consider a polarized lens if you spend a lot of time in bright sunlight or places with lots of sun reflection, like by water or on snowy mountains.

💡 Did you know? At HORUS X, you can choose between two types of glass, featuring either our Darkmatter® or x-Pol® technology. Both are category 3, with excellent protection against UV and glare. But our x-Pol® lenses are polarized, for even greater glare protection (useful when driving), while our Darkmatter® lenses are the first lenses optimized for outdoor screen reading.

Without further ado, we present our list of the best cheap sunglasses, all for under $60!
