This Season - Sun Glasses

Mar 11, 2008
Most Women of a heightened fashion sense know that this season the style is going to be over sized plastic sun glasses. I'd have to agree with them.

Think Jacqueline Onassis meets Victoria Beckham. I don't think anything can be too big this year. Except of course those novelty ones you see at fun fairs. They defiantly won't be in fashion. But the colours they come in defiantly will be. Think trashy reds and rubber duck yellow and you'll be close. All the colours and fun of the fair!

With the fact that these huge sun glasses are staying in fashion means that they offer better eye protection than the smaller framed round ones, popular in the late nineties.

Obviously when buying sun glasses, they can look fantastic. But you should make sure they protect your eyes as well as they can. The most important aspect is choosing sunglasses with 100% ultraviolet (UV) protection that blocks up to 400 nanometers. This is maximum protection and that's what you want.

The majority of the time they will be a label that tells you how much UV a particular model of sun glasses will block out. But be careful of cheap Chinese knock offs. They usually don't offer any protection what so ever.

These invisible UV rays can damage your eyes. Some of the damage can happen right away andsome can occur over a lifetime of exposure. Constant exposure to bright sunlight can damage the cornea (the clear outer part of the eye that allows light through to the retina), the lens (the part of the eye responsible for focusing), and the retina (the innermost layer of the eye that sends an image to the brain).

The great thing about sun glasses recently is that you don't have to spend a million pound, to get a great look. The lenses don't vary much once you get above 50 or so. A 50 pair or glasses usually offer the same amount of protection as a 900 pair. So you don't have to have Paris Hiltons millions to look as good as her.

Polarized glasses are not as popular as they once were but I think if you can find the style you want with polarized lenses, go for it. Polarized Lenses reduce glare of water and glass. But as before be careful, just because they Polarized doesn't mean the block UV.

Sun glasses lenses will come in all colours choose whichever looks best, as there is no relationship between color and UV protection. Dark lenses with no UV protection are worse for the eye than light lenses with UV protection because the dark color allows pupils to dilate and be more susceptible to UV damage.

If your planning on heading away for a skiing holiday before the season ends. Wraparound sunglasses and ski goggles are essential for ski-ing, high altitudes mean much more intense UV and very bright conditions when the sun comes out.

This summer is going to be an exciting time for sun glasses I think. We've seen what the designers have done. Now I'm looking forward to seeing what appears on the high street. I hope I'm going to be shocked!
