For some people, buying sun wear is an easy choice. They go to the gas station, get a $6 pair of sunglasses, and call it good. However, unless they’re lucky this pair of sunglasses will likely be uncomfortable after a while or break quickly. These less expensive sunglasses often have less comprehensive UV protection also. So if you lose your sunglasses every few weeks, then the gas station pair might be the best option for you. If you do not lose things on a frequent basis, you will want to consider investing in a good pair of sunglasses.
Quality sunglasses are a good investment because they will often have the best UV protection. When you start to look for the right pair of sunglasses, there are a few things you should consider in conjunction as to what looks good.
First you should choose a pair of sunglasses with either 99% or 100% UV protection. You also want sun wear that protects against UVA and UVB rays. The UV protection not only protects your eye, but it also protects the delicate skin around your eyes. Though bigger is not always better, it is the case with sunglasses. The larger the lenses are the more of your eye will be protected.
A few of the different types of sunglasses include blue-blocking, polycarbonate and polarized. Blue-blocking lenses are generally amber-tinted lenses, and they block out blue light. They are to help you see distant objects when the light is low. Polycarbonate lenses are often used by people who play sports and need sunglasses because they can protect the eyes from harsh impact. Polycarbonate lenses are especially useful for people who ride motorcycles. A bug hitting your face at 60 mph can be a very unpleasant and painful experience if you do not have the proper eye protection. Polarized lenses are designed to reduce glare by reflecting light.
