Tortoiseshell glasses will never go out of style — and for good reason! Their warm colors and attractive texture work with so many different outfits and feels both classic and modern at the same time. We offer a whole host of different shapes and color combos of tortoise eyeglasses, so take your time checking them out.
The unique coloring of this style is achieved with plant-material based acetate. Don’t worry, no turtles or tortoises were harmed in the making of our frames! In fact, this eco-friendly process makes our frames more durable than ever before.
The classic tortoise glasses color is a rich brown and golden pattern that’s classy and stylish. This pattern draws attention to your face and could easily become the centerpiece of any outfit. We also have some more adventurous colors like pinks and whites for a more modern look.
Tortoise Glasses Shapes
This vintage-inspired pattern looks great with a variety of frame shapes. Try out some tortoiseshell cat-eyes for a bit of feminine style, or some round-lensed frames too properly embrace the vintage appeal of tortoiseshell eyeglasses
Those Little Details
At EyeBuyDirect, we believe the details matter. Your perfect pair’s features, from the tiniest hinge to the temple arms, come together to create something truly special. Pay attention to the eye-catching hinge studs or the keyhole nose bridge when browsing our tortoise eyeglasses and find something that really speaks to you.
Focusing on Lenses
Prescription Tortoiseshell Glasses
Buying prescription eyewear online with EyeBuyDirect is simple. Just enter your prescription carefully at checkout (and then double-check it) and add any other lens options that tickle your fancy. You can enter your CYL number for astigmatism correction or your prism prescription for eye orientation.
Blue Light Blocking Lenses
Adding Blue Light Blocking lenses to your tortoiseshell glasses is a great idea if you spend a lot of time in front of digital screens. The blue light from screens can reduce sleep quality and over time could even cause macular degeneration. Your eyewear should protect your eyes as well as making them look great!
Light Adjusting Transitions
Not sure if you want this distinctive pattern on eyeglasses or sunglasses? How about both at once! Our TransitionsⓇ lenses quickly lighten or darken depending on the surrounding light level. How convenient is that?
Lightweight frames weigh 15 grams or lighter without the lenses.
