Sun Glasses Selection Guide - How to Pick the Perfect Sun Glasses!

There are some basic, but essential considerations in choosing your sun glasses, whether they're designer, polarized, or prescription sunglasses. These are the MOST important:
  • UV and intense visible light protection – block 99-100% of UVA (wrinkles) and UVB (harmful eye damage/cataracts) rays and 75-90% of intense, visible light. Percentage of visible light blocked is also known as the “transmission factor”.
  • Impact resistance and durability – protect your eyes from airborne debris, and protect your glasses from bumps, drops, and the occasional car seat crunch.
  • Glare reduction – minimize annoying and dangerous glare. Need polarized sunglasses? Depends on the activity.
  • Minimal color distortion – optimal lens colors are gray (virtually no color distortion), brown, or green.
  • Minimal image distortion - matched, high-quality lenses free from imperfections.
  • Rx - prescription sunglasses are available in most designer brands.
  • Comfort – if they’re not comfortable, you probably won’t wear them.
  • Style - Don't stop there...you need to look great too!!
Need more? Yep, you do. The above key performance features are all a function of lens and frame selection. So here’s more discussion covering what you need to know to pick the perfect pair of shades...sun glasses lenses and frames.
