The purpose of sunglasses? Protecting your eyes. Looking cool is just the icing on the cake!
Here’s how to choose wisely:
- Choose sunglasses with 100 percent UV protection to shield your eyes from damaging UVA and UVB rays.
- Oversize lenses are the best choice. The more surface area your sunglasses cover the more your eyes are safeguarded.
- Color matters. Grey-toned lenses keep color true. Green lenses enhance vision. Amber and brown tones improve contrast and reduce glare. Avoid red or pink which make everything look rosy-toned and blue or purple shades which can distort traffic lights, size and distance.
- Think thin. Sunglasses with thick sides could block your peripheral vision.
