Both styles are Rx-friendly.

For women, the Polarized Collection offers The Glow Must Go On, the TB7032, in a full-rim TR90 construction with a textured animal print detail, and the Shade Time, Shade Place, the TB6029, a full-rim handmade combination frame with a woven-inspired pressed metal detail that offers understated island-inspired texture and is Rx-friendly.
