SUNNIES FOR A SUNNY SUMMER

 

Sunglasses are a constant in all summer escapades. Mostly worn as an ode to the perfect Instagram post, sunglasses are more than a fashion accessory. The next time you purchase or wear your "shades", consider these factors:

 

1. Size

  • Bigger is better.
  • This will help to provide much needed protection of the skin around the eyes.
  • Wraparound sunglasses are beneficial particularly for sporting activities as it will provide 360 degree coverage.

 

2. UV protection

  • There should always be a UV400 protection on your lenses.
  • If your lenses are scratched, replace them immediately to prevent unwanted UV rays from penetrating your lenses.

 

3.Color

  • Darker lenses do not provide more UV protection than lighter colored lenses.
  • The tint of your lenses is related to your sensitivity of light. However, some settings benefit from certain tints.
  • Grey colored lenses reduce overall brightness without distorting colors.
  • Brown colored lenses work best in low light conditions and can enhance depth perception.

 

4.Quality

  • Always purchase your sunglasses from a reputed optical dealer.
  • Sunglasses with no UV protection make your eyes more vulnerable to UV damage.
  • Polarized lenses are an excellent option, if you are looking for a lens to increase your glare protection when you are fishing or skiing.
  • These lenses block out horizontal UV rays, therefore decreasing glare.
  • Polarized lenses also work well in Kuwait, especially if you are driving into the desert often.
