What else is vital when choosing a pair of Sunglasses?
UV Protection- If your eyes get too much UV Radiation, you can suffer from problems like cataracts, cancer, and burns that’s way to protect yourselves from such risks, pick sunglasses that block at least 95% of UV rays. Don’t buy sunglasses labeled “Cosmetic” or those that don’t give you information about UV protection.
Comfortable Fit- Sunglasses shouldn’t feel uncomfortable like they are too small and squeezing your head. Their weight should be distributed between the ears and nose, not the cheeks. Your eyeglasses shouldn’t touch the lenses or frames.
Lens Color- Grey Lens reduce the intensity of light, but they don’t distort colors or affect contrast in any way.
Brown lenses-will affect the contrast by blocking some blue lights. This makes them perfect for winters sports in the snow.
Yellow Lenses- Yellow or amber lenses strengthen contrast as they block almost all blue light remember because they decrease color recognition. They aren’t the best sunglasses to wear while driving.
Blue and Green-Lenses enhance yellow contrasts, so if you like to play Tennis, these sunglasses are exactly what you need
Lens Material- You have to be careful what material the lenses are made from using only scratch resistant lenses because sunglasses that scratched become useless. Lens made from NXT Polyurethane is a great choice. They are scratch resistant, lightweight, durable, flexible and have fantastic optical clarity they are pretty expensive though. You may also choose Polycarbonate lenses, this material isn’t as scratch-resistant and its optical clarity isn’t ideal but the price is more affordable. Acrylic is the most affordable option but lenses made of this material are the least durable and their optical clarity is the worst.
