Fashionable Sunglasses

Sunglasses are generally as much of a fashion statement as your designer clothes that you got at a discount. This reflect your personality. This reason people don't just purchase the first pair of glasses that they happen to lay their hands on. They purchase again and again when they find one that they love. But style isn't the only factor to be considered. Remember that sunglasses are meant to be used more for functionality and safety.

Eye protection is the most important reason for wearing sunglasses. The UV rays can damage our skin and of course it can damage our eyes too. You can get mascular degeneration and cataracts, which cause vision impairment when you are always exposed to the sun. When selecting a pair of glasses make sure it is made from CR-39R or polycarbonate. CR-39R blocks about eighty eight percent of the UV rays, while polycarbonate blocks almost one hundred.

Make sure they will work for the purpose you intend. For instance, if you plan on using them daily you will want a different lens color than if you plan on using them for an extreme sport. Glasses with a gray lens color are best for everyday use. They are true color perception. For sports you may want to do some research or contact a glasses specialist. They will know which color of lens will work best with your sport of choice.

Make sure your glasses protect your eyes, but after that point let them be a statement of your personality!
