Guide To Buying Sunglasses

Guide To Buying Sunglasses

Though sunglasses are important for protecting your eyes
against harmful UV rays and from sun damage, they can also
be a great fashion statement.

Staying current with seasonal trends and updated selections
is important to many people, including famous stars and
celebrities.

Clothing designers and celebrities alike have developed
their own lines of sunglasses.

Gucci, Fendi, Donna Karan, Vera Wang, and Tommy Hilfiger
make some of today’s hottest sunglass designs while
celebrity designers include Britney Spears, Joan Collins,
Jerry Garcia and Donald Trump.

Whatever you are looking for in sunglasses, you can be
assured someone has designed it. You just have to be
willing to pay the price.

Buying sunglasses for your children is very important.

Children have sensitive eyes and over exposure to the sun
can cause permanent damage and lead to macular degeneration
when they get older.

While many people don’t realize it, price does not dictate
function. Even sunglasses costing seven dollars have been
known to have better UV protection than ones costing
seventy.

What you are looking for is a pair of sunglasses that have
100% UV protection. Sunglasses labeled polycarbonate have
100% absorption, and glasses marked CR-39R plastic are
about 88% effective. You want something cute and
comfortable and of course stylish.

If you spend a lot of time on the water, snow, or you spend
a lot of time driving then it is best to choose a polarized
lens.

Polarization cuts out the light coming from the horizontal
meridian while allowing light to come from the vertical.
Basically it blocks reflections of light off water, snow
and highways while reducing glare.
