Why Glass Lens Material is the Best in Sunglasses?

Posted by Kristina on

I missed you!! I wasn’t able to write anything for few days because I was conducting sunglasses training for our company. While conducting the training I touched up on a subject that I want to talk to you about.

When I was child my parents and all their friends were buying sunglasses. They way they were choosing sunglasses always amazed me. They always said that real sunglasses only come with glass green lenses. I got used to that fact and grew up thinking that all other sunglasses can damage our eyes.

Serengeti SunglassesNow, that I am an eyewear specialist, I understand why they thought that glass green lenses are the best. Glass lenses have the best visual quality. It is really amazing how sharp the objects are when you are looking through a glass lens. Most popular brands of sunglasses, like Ray Ban and Serengeti, come with glass lenses. However, nowadays there are more great lens materials available than there were 20 years ago. Polycarbonate lenses are very similar to glass. They come with a good visual quality and they are much lighter than glass. Polycarbonate lenses are definitely better for sports than glass because they are very durable.

So for those of you, who buy sunglasses with strictly glass lenses, especially if you buy prescription sun glasses, I would recommend trying polycarbonate lenses. I am sure you will enjoy them as much as you enjoy your favorite glass lenses!
