Lewis Hamilton Wearing Prescription Eyewear

Lewis Hamilton Wearing Prescription Eyewear

It's the start of the the new Formula One season and this weekend, the current (and three-time) World Champion Lewis Hamilton was back on top form by taking pole position for the 2016 Australian Grand Prix.

Lewis Hamilton has become something of a style icon away from the grid over recent years and even when he's wearing his fire-proof Mercedes overalls he still manages to show off some of his style choices through countless amounts of sunglasses around the pitlane.

This weekend however at the first race of the season in a not-so-sunny Melbourne, Australia Hamilton was more often seen wearing his prescription Eyewear with clear lenses.

We're not exactly sure if Hamilton needs prescription glasses or if he is just wearing clear/plano lenses for fashion reasons - but the latter would be my guess.

It's not the first time Hamilton has been seen wearing clear glasses frames, he has posted many photos of himself on Instagram wearing these trendy retro-style round-rimmed-glasses as you can see in these photos below.

Lewis Hamilton Wearing Tom Ford & Dior Sunglasses at The Australian Grand Prix 2015

Lewis Hamilton Wearing Sunglasses at The Australian GP 2015

Lewis Hamilton is probably better known for changing his sunglasses every five minutes than he is for winning the Formula 1 World Championship two times - Just look through some of the old posts on this site and you will see what I mean.

The first race of the 2015 Season in Melbourne, Australia was no different, as Lewis Hamilton was seen around the Albert Park Circuit wearing at least two different pairs of high-end designer sunglasses over the course of the race weekend.

During part of the weekend, he was seen wearing these dark shades as seen in this photo (above) after securing Pole Position on Saturday 14th March 2015.


And for most of the rest of the weekend Hamilton was wearing these clear acetate sunglasses with silver mirror lenses that seemed to match all the bling he was wearing whenever he got the chance.

Lewis Hamilton's New Favourite Sunglasses for 2014 by Super Retro Future

Lewis Hamilton wearing Super Retro Future Sunglasses in 2014

Lewis Hamilton has already been seen wearing lots of different sunglasses during the 2014 F1 season as you can see in these posts here and here; but he finally seems to have made his mind up about which ones are his current favourite sunnies.

The British Mercedes F1 driver has been wearing these cool black sunglasses at a number of races now, including The Canadian GP, The Austrian GP and most recently at The British GP in 2014.  It's taken a little while to figure out exactly what they are, but it seems we finally have the answer...

Lewis Hamilton Wearing Gucci Sunglasses in 2014

Lewis Hamilton Wearing Gucci Sunglasses at 2014 Monaco GP

Lewis Hamilton changes his sunglasses like he changes his underwear, which is probably a lot when your travelling at 200 miles per hour all the time!

During the first couple of races he was seen wearing Emporio Armani sunglasses as reported here. I think I've counted around 4 or 5 different styles of sunglasses since then; all of them tend to be quite large styles, such as the ones in these photos from the 2014 Monaco GP.

I was looking at some sunglasses in the shop the other day when I came across the Oakley Breadbox model.  Yeah, funny name, but I must say, I really liked them.  Then I found these pictures on my phone that I had taken last year of Romain Grosjean wearing the Oakley Breadbox sunglasses at the Korean GP in 2013.

Kimi Raikkonen Wearing Oakley Carbon Blade Scuderia Ferrari Special Edition Sunglasses

The only time Kimi Raikkonen isn't wearing Oakley sunglasses is when he is asleep (I'm assuming), or maybe when he's wearing his helmet while driving his Ferrari F1 car around the race track like at Montreal this weekend at the 2014 Canadian GP.

Like his Ferrari F1 team mate Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen has been wearing Oakley's new Special Edition Scuderia Ferrari Sunglasses during the 2014 World Championship.

Jean-Eric Vergne Wears Ray-Ban Wayfarer Urban Camouflage Sunglasses at 2014 Monaco GP

Jean-Eric Vergne Wearing Urban Camouflage Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses at 2014 Monaco GP
Toro Rosso F1 driver Jean-Eric Vergne was seen wearing some pretty cool Special Edition Ray-Ban Wayfarer Urban Camouflage Sunglasses this weekend at the 2014 Monaco GP in Monte Carlo.

Fashion is a funny thing though as there seems to be a contradiction going on here, given that the urban camouflage edition of these Wayfarer sunglasses should help Vergne to blend into the background of this urban street circuit in Monaco, but instead they actually make him stand out in the paddock thanks to their cool style and colours.
