UV Protection

UV Protection

The most important thing to look for when buying a new pair of sunglasses is the amount of UV protection that they offer as UV rays can do serious damage to your eyesight, when looking at a pair of sunglasses make sure that they meet the minimum requirements of at least 60% UVA and 70% UVB protection, also keep in mind that the tint of the lens has no effect on the UV protection.

Polarized lenses reduce the amount of glare that you will get reflected of objects, these are extremely useful in many different situations like if you are going near water or even driving as it makes your vision much clearer in situations where you need to see as much as possible.

Lens Tints

While it may look like the tint of the lens on sunglasses is purely for looks different lens tints actually do different things!

Grey or black lenses dim out light while making sure not to distort any colours.

Red lenses enhance contrast but do distort some colours.

Green and brown lenses sit in the middle between red and black lenses, giving a good mixture between colour and contrast.

It is always a good idea to match the type of lens tint to the style of activity that you do.

A great feature that some sunglasses offer is the option to have scratch resistant lenses, these are much more durable than normal lenses and are a fantastic addition if you are rough with your glasses!

Mirrored lenses are also great if you want to reflect light off the glasses, this helps filter some of the light out so that you can see a bit better.
