What Makes a Good Pair of Sun Glasses?
Dark Lenses – Usually grey or brown. This will block approximately 80% of the visible light to make us feel comfortable.
100% UV protection – Sunglasses for the eyes are like sun block to the skin. UV exposure has been associated with the formation of cataracts, macular degeneration, skin cancer of the lids & pterygium (a fleshy growth in the corner of your eye).
Polarized lens – Light reflected from a surface such as water, sand, or a road will produce glare that will make your vision less defined. A polarized lens will block the glare reflected from a surface. Whether you spend your time boating, fishing, water skiing, in-line skating, biking, driving or jogging, polarized sunglasses are an excellent choice.
