The best sunglasses will protect your eyes anywhere you are out-of-doors in bright UV light.
Do you squint when you are out in the sun or even on a cloudy day outside.
Your eyes are recieving too much light, the iris is closed as far as possible and so you squint to compensate. UV rays in sunlight can burn your eyes just as they burn your skin. Your cornea acts as a natural barrier but some rays still sneak through causing cateracts, macular degeneration and even cancers in latter life.
From the purely cosmetic point of view your squinting is causing wrinkles around your eyes which will become permanent over time and are very aging
So protecting your eyes with the best sunglasses you can afford is really sensible. You will be safer and more comfortable at a picnic.
There are so many different designs in tints, lens material, quality, darkness, coatings let alone frames that the choice can be really bewildering. Of course choosing the right lens is essential but choosing frames is important too if you want to look your best.
There are sunglasses for all the family. Check out some of the best sunglasses at the links below.
You can spend anything from $20 or even $10 to hundreds for a pair of sunglasses. The question is are expensive, polarised sunglasses any better than that cheap pair from a market stall.
Are you just paying for a fancy name?
The best sunglasses can completely eliminate the ultraviolet rays that damage the cornea and retina of your eye. Polarised sunglasses will eliminate glare from bright, reflective surfaces such as water or sand making them the best sunglasses for fishing or a beach picnic.
Cheap sunglasses may look just like the expensive ones but the lenses made completely differently. The lenses are made of ordinary plastic with a thin tint coating on them. They will give you no protection from UV rays. While they block out some of the light they allow your iris to open wider letting more UV rays reach your retina. This can cause more damage than not wearing sunglasses at all.
Sunglasses will get a lot of rough wear in the great outdoors. Glasses tend to get thrown in the bottom of your bag. They are exposed to sand, sea spray, gravel, mud, and of course the sun. So they need to be tough and as scratch proof as possible.
Sunglasses are made with different tints on the lenses. Choose one that suits you best and compliments your skin tone.
Popular frames are often a matter of fashion. Some famous brands follow the trends but others have their own distinct signature look.
Whether you want to look really cool, protect your eyes or just see clearly without eyestrain in the great outdoors spend some time to choose the best sunglasses for you.
