Summer Sunglasses

Posted by DannyV on

It’s almost that time here in the midwest to be prepared for that summer sun! With all the excitement in the air it can be easy to not get the right pair of sunglasses. You  will want a pair to help with that harsh glare to help enjoy the view of the beach, or even while on that summer drive with the windows open or the top down on that convertible. Protection of your eyes is just as essential as the sunscreen lotion you require from the sun. My recommendation is to get lenses that have polarized filters in them. Polarized lenses work wonderfully and help with glare extremely; especially reflective glare from the water. They are popular among fishermen and even those who participate in water sports, but what most do not realize is that it can help you as well even if you’re not being involved in those situations. They also help when you are driving! That’s right! When driving it helps eliminate that glare from the shiny car in your distance causing you to squint your eyes. What fun is that? Get the full field of view by not allowing yourself to suffer from squinting. Colors also look amazing with polarized lenses. One of my favorite brands to talk about it Serengeti which offers photochromic polarized lenses. Which means they adjust to sunlight by getting darker while out in brighter conditions and still have the added ability of a polarized filter. Maui Jim, Bolle, and Ray-Ban all have the option to add polarized lenses and give you the great fit so you are comfortable in almost any situation. Allow polarized filters to assist you this summer and experience the added bonus of not having to squint your eyes at this beautiful world.

    One thing that worries me is the availability of “cosmetic sunglasses”. These fashion sunglasses look great but offer NO protection from the sun! They can even make sun damage worse in that the tinted lenses allow the pupil to dilate, letting in even more harmful rays.

    When shopping for sunglasses, please make sure your lenses offer the best protection you can afford.

  2. Julie – I could not have said it better myself. Although its good to have that fashion pair for special occasions, it is more important to get a pair that will protect you completely! Thank you for your feedback!
