Sunglasses: not just a fashion item

June 20, 2019

The sunglasses industry has grown so much since the 1950’s that today people tend to disregard the health benefits of wearing sunglasses considering them mere fashion accessories.

But sunglasses are more than just fashionable, they are also protective eyewear, much needed to correct vision and one’s eyes.

Yes, the wrong pair of sunglasses can make your face look disproportionate or washed out. But at the end of the day, if the sun was particularly intense outside, you’d wear any pair of sunglasses, even if they’d make you look funny.

Sunglasses with 100% UV protection and with a nice photo chromic tint help you stay fully protected from harmful intense sunlight. They are a must have for people practicing outside activities or sports or professionals working long hours under the sun.

When it comes to the materials used in lenses, Standard Plastic Lenses are the most common and less shattering and with better UV protection, whilst Polycarbonate Lenses are highly resistant and a preferred choice for safety and children glasses. This makes High Index Lenses, the most comfortable to wear.
