Whether you need something that can survive the drop from desk to floor with your glasses intact, a glasses case to help keep your precious frames dry or maybe just something to tuck into your pocket to protect your glasses from daily wear and tear, we’ve got you covered. Dive into our picks below and start protecting your glasses today because if you take good care of your glasses, they’ll keep taking good care of your eyes.
Whatever your basic needs are for your glasses, the Optiplix Hard Shell Glasses Case will address them. The beauty of a glasses case like this is it’s inherently simple. Is it hard enough to be sat upon? Check. Does it snap shut, keeping dirt and dust out and ensuring your glasses won’t accidentally fall out? Check. Is it big enough to fit most frames while not being unwieldy? Check. Is the inside soft enough so I know my lenses won’t get scratched? Check. Does it come in multiple colorways so I can go for something that will blend or something eye-catching that will stand out? Check. Can I afford to buy three so I have a glasses case in every place I need? Check.
The Optiplix covers all the basic bases you would need in a glasses case and will offer solid protection through its hard clamshell casing at a reasonable price. Some of the designs even have glasses printed on the case so you couldn’t possibly confuse the case for anything other than what it is: a simple, great glasses case. For hitting most of the needs for most people, the Optiplix is our unquestioned best overall glasses case.
Short of buying basically a glasses lockbox, there’s only so much protection you get for your glasses out of a glasses case. That being said, the Nite Ize Rugged Hard Shell Optics Case offers a lot of features to make sure your glasses stay safe. The weather-resistant hardshell exterior helps protect against some rain, falls or crushing and the interior has foam on the inside so even if you leave the case under something heavy the glasses should remain unscathed, not to mention scratch-free. A zip enclosure guarantees your glasses won’t ever slip out (so long as you remember to zip it closed!) and this case also features a built-in clip as well as a built-in carabiner loop, so you can secure this case anywhere you want. As an added bonus, the case features a sewn-in microfiber cloth, so you’ll always be able to give your lenses a quick polish when you’re out and about.
