Sunglasses Are Important For Vision Care And Protection

Oct 9, 2007
They come in different names, shades, sunglasses, sunnies, etc. But how you call them doesn't matter at all. What matters is that you should be aware that sunglasses are important for eye health.

Sunglasses, as you may find in the market, come in a wide array of styles, designs, brands, lenses, shapes and colors. Knowing the right type for you would have to be dependent on what a qualified optician will recommend.

Frames come in designs that were made famous by Jackie O. to the ever popular wraps. They can come in materials made from metal, plastic, titanium and many more others. When you are looking for a frame, it is important to note that the chosen frame should be slightly larger and its placement is close to the face. Such will prevent the streaming of light into the eyes. The wrap frame would be a perfect example for this. There is just one drawback for this type of frame which is the difficulty to put a prescription.

The more popular frames nowadays especially for the ladies have incorporated into their designs embellishments like rhinestones and those with drilled mounted shields continue to grow strong in popularity.

As for sunglass lenses, they come in a variety of designs. The most recommended though would be polarized lenses ideal for sun wear. Polarized lenses actually remove any reflective glare and it is very much recommended for fishermen or boatmen for them to be able to see clearly into the water. Actually, this type of lens is recommended for everyone. They come in choice colors including gray and brown among others and in a variety of prescriptions like bifocal, sv, trifocal and even progressive. The material can also vary from plastic, hi index and polycarbonate.

Other choices include photo chromic lenses which changes colors when exposed to the ultra violet rays of the sun. They come with 100% UV protection and allow you to have a pair of glasses. The color choices are gray or brown. Anti-reflective coating can be added to make the lens clear when indoors and then turn into sunglasses when outdoors in direct sunlight. To change the lens color, the sun's UV rays are needed. So, when you are inside your car, the color doesn't change because the car's windshield absorbs the UV rays.

What is very much important when it comes to any type of sunglasses is that they protect your eyes 100% from the harmful UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
