The Best Straps for Your Eyeglasses

Also called glasses retainers, these straps slide on to the sides of your glasses and then easily rest around your neck when not on your face. They are an excellent way to secure your glasses and keep them safe.

What to Consider in Glasses Straps

When purchasing glasses straps, here’s what you should consider:

  • Fastener: You will want to make sure the connection to the glasses will fit around the frame.
  • Length: Determine if the size is long enough for the glasses to rest comfortably on your chest when not in use.
