Selecting the perfect sunglasses

Getting a pair of sunglasses requires an approval from a confidante. Keep the following in mind while getting your hands on the right one.

– Get a well-fitting pair, don’t pinch around your head and the weight is evenly distributed between your ears and nose. Also make sure that your eyelashes don’t touch the frame or lenses and it doesn’t slip down the bridge of your nose.

– Avoid one with no info on their UV protection. To top it, wearing cosmetic sunglasses aggravates eye damage. Dark lenses reduce light available to the eye thereby resulting in pupil dilation. And it is thus, essential to wear ones that block UVA and UVB rays.

– Selecting the correct material for lenses is essential. Lenses made of NXT polyurethane are flexible, light in weight and have great optical clarity but expensive. Do not get a glass lens if you can’t handle it well. While polycarbonate, is affordable it isn’t as clear and scratch-resistant as NXT polyurethane or glass.

– Choose the correct lens colour. It is not just a fashion statement but also affects how you detect contrast and differentiate colours. Some colours enhance contrast, which is useful, but can cause problems and affect colour distinction. For instance, grey lenses reduce light intensity without distorting colours, while brown lenses enhance contrast and blocks some blue light.

– For oval shaped faces, the best kind of shades are square shaped ones or cat’s eye frames; people with a square face should go for rounded frames and vice-versa, while heart shaped faces opt for aviators.
– Choose glasses depending on your face’s size and that they are not too big, heavy or small.
