About

Sunglasses are not just for style; they are a necessity for protecting our eyes. When shopping for the perfect pair, there are many common problems one should keep in mind before deciding on which pair to buy. At Sunnyside LA, we keep our customers’ needs and concerns in mind because each customer is important and special to us. We know that people are often spending hundreds of dollars on big-name brand sunglasses, yet are still coming across issues with their purchase. Sunnyside LA wants to help make your choice easy. We have considered all the common problems that people often face and took action to resolve each one. We specialize in our sunglasses just for you while keeping your budget in mind. With personalization, we have tailored our product to accommodate all of your needs.

How many times have you stuck your sunglasses in your shirt, only to have them fall out and hit the ground? Or maybe you tripped, and they went tumbling. Maybe you left them on a bench somewhere. As you live your life, your sunglasses are going to end up scratched one way or another. But that’s now come to an end.

Sunnyside LA is so excited to introduce our brand new, never before seen technology: Magic Lens Technology (MLT). Imagine never having to continuously buy new sunglasses every time you get a scratch or mark on them. With this new technical capability, the sun is your new best friend! The MLT technology will repair scratches on your sunglasses right away and you will always look great soaking up the sun in your shades. 

When the Magic Lens Technology was originally discovered, it was commonly used on vehicles. Through cross-border research, development, and design, we have successfully added this technology to our sunglass lens. Sunnyside LA wants to supply you with the best of the best and we know you will absolutely fall in love with our sunglasses. We are thrilled to bring you the future of shades. Let our sunglasses protect you from the sun, and let the sun protect you from having to buy new shades.

Unfortunately, sunglasses tend to break easily, especially the temples. We know how costly a good pair of sunglasses can be, so we knew it was important to create something that is strong and long-lasting. At Sunnyside LA, we realize that people often misplace their sunglasses and may accidentally leave them somewhere that can cause them to easily get broken. Whether you leave your pair on the chair and accidentally sit on it, step on them after setting them down next to you at the beach or even just dropping them on the floor, our glasses will not break easily.

Sunnyside LA is helping fix this problem by using stronger materials then most brands do. The hinge that the arm is connected to is made out of the high quality, strong German steel. By using this steel to keep the sunglasses arm and frames attached, it is strong enough to prevent breakage.

A common problem many people face while wearing their sunglasses is the tendency for them to slip down their noses. Do you frequently find yourself having to re-adjust the positioning of your sunglasses on your face? Have you ever experienced looking down at something, causing your glasses to fall off? Sunnyside LA has come up with a solution to this problem.

As part of the process of designing the perfect pair of sunglasses, we wanted to make sure that this problem was solved. To do this, we use anti-slip nose pads. It is made out of an ultra-thin silicone material with an adhesive backing. This material is sweat resistant and is proven to keep your glasses in place, even during high movement activities such as skateboarding, biking, running, and more. You can now look around with ease and enjoy the scenery without having to reposition your shades or worry about them falling off.

People often notice that the temples of their glasses don’t always lie evenly when being set down onto a flat surface. Even when being worn, one temple might be raised slightly above your ear causing the fit of the glasses to be crooked. The rear weight balance is the reason this occurs.

Sunnyside LA is committed to designing each and every pair of sunglasses to fit your face perfectly. The rear weight balance is tested on every individual pair of glasses before shipping. By shopping at Sunnyside LA, we pledge to give you the best quality glasses that are personally customized to you, but without the extra cost.

It is a fact that sunglasses tend to get dirty and smudged on a regular basis. A lot of sunglasses can be very difficult to clean well and requires constant use of wipes to remove dirt and fingerprints.

At Sunnyside LA, our lens are very easy to clean and will remain clean for a much longer period of time. We have added a smooth topcoat to the lenses that allow fast and easy cleaning. You no longer have to waste your time and money on wipes. We’ve got you covered!

What type of scratches can be repaired without destroying the coating?

Almost all kinds of scratches can be repaired with the new MLT coating. Anything from small scratches, ordinary spirals, and day-to-day wear and tear can be refurbished. As long as the technical coating is not damaged, your glasses will consistently look brand new. Scratches from dropping them, key marks, or any basic scrape from keeping your glasses in your bag will always self-heal. Even though our Magic Lens will make most scratches disappear, it is important to keep in mind that it does not work if the technical coating is destroyed. Scratches from extremely sharp items such as scissors, knives, razors, and blades will not disappear. Instead, marks from these knife-edged items will damage the glasses. If you take care of your Sunnyside LA sunglasses, they will continue taking care of you.

Before Sunnyside LA came around, shopping for the perfect pair of sunglasses was hard todo. Sunnyside LA began in order to fill the gap in the retail of well-made affordable sunglasses. After looking through the current market, we discovered that people are either spending hundreds of dollars on sunglasses that don’t have many benefits or spending a little bit of money on a pair that then break easily and has to constantly be replaced. Living in Southern California, we are lucky to experience sunny weather for the majority of the year. Here, people are wearing their sunglasses almost every day. To us, it only made sense to start a sunglasses company here in sunny LA. In 2018, Sunnyside LA was born. Our sunglasses are not only an investment to your wardrobe, but they are also an investment for the health of your eyes. After spending a considerable amount of time researching the best high-quality metals, technological coatings, and unique design, we have created top of the market sunglasses that are still cost-friendly.

Since starting our company in Los Angeles, we have grown and developed our techniques to bring a better product to our customers. We have a relationship with an Italian factory to make our fabulous, high-quality frames. Our lenses technology, are made in California. Each pair is carefully handcrafted with love and integrity to make sure our customers are getting the best product possible. Between distinctive designs, using supreme materials, and adding high technology, we ensure top quality sunglasses and are happy to call Sunny California home to Sunnyside LA.

Risks and challenges

We believe a pair of sunglasses isn’t only an accessory; it is a necessity for protecting your vision. We wanted to create a product that would withstand daily wear and hold up during movement and activities. We made it our priority to keep our customers' needs in mind while designing. We have spent hours researching the best materials, technologies, and came up with solutions for all common problems people tend to face while shopping for their sunglasses. We want our customers to be able to enjoy our glasses every day while looking stylish and being comfortable. Pay a fair price and have your glasses personally customized to your needs. After much time spent perfecting our sunglasses to fit our consumer’s needs.
