We want to help you find the perfect Sunglasses

Posted by LarumD on

Sunglasses aren’t just for looking fly, but also provide necessary UV protection to protect your eyes and skin from the sun. Whether you need prescription sunglasses or just off the rack sunglasses, choosing the right sunglasses can keep your eyes healthy.

Sunglasses are definitely important for sun protection and the eye health; they are also a fashion statement. Your sunglasses should not only be comfortable and stylish, but they should also be flattering to your face. You can order from online companies that offer hassle free return policies or you can even make a stop by the optical shop, look at various styles and shop for your sunglasses. Once you find the perfect fit you will be able to order your prescription sunglasses without any worry.

Some experts suggest that your frames should contrast with the shape of your face. If your face is very angular, select rounder frames for your sunglasses, and if you have a round face, a more angular frame will be more flattering. Your frame size should be in scale with your face size. Avoid very large sunglasses if you have a very small face, and vice-versa. Select frame and lens colors that flatter your complexion. Warmer skin tones will be better suited by warm tones, like gold, bronze, brown and tortoiseshell. Cooler skin tones will be more flattered by sunglasses in shades of silver, gray or blue.opplanet-smith-optics-breakbeat-sunglasses-tortoise-frame-brown-lense.jpg

I feel technology is often times more important than brand or style. Certain brands raise the bar and they combine style, protection and a famous name. I have a large head so large lenses is what I look for. Not only that; I want polarized lenses that block harsh glare. Light bounces off object such as roads, cars and water. The filter in polarized lenses blocks this type of intense reflected light, reducing glare. AR coating is a very advanced feature to look for. Anti-reflective coating (also called AR coating or anti-glare coating) improves both your vision through your lenses and the appearance of your glasses. AR coating is applied to the backside of the lens and will prevent that mirror image of your eyes you often see in very dark sunglasses. It’s actually several layers of metal oxides applied to the lens surfaces. Depending on your interest’s hobbies and the sport usage of your sunglasses, the color is very important. I have gray for the bright days, gray or green are the darkest lens available. Brown is great for medium to low light. Orange, yellow and rust lenses are perfect for contrast and highlighting on cloudy days. So many colors for so many applications.
