Transcript

  • 1. How to Determine the Quality of Sunglasses http://www.matrixeyewear.com
  • 2. Introduction
    • Sunglasses come in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and styles, and are designed to protect your eyes from the sun.
    • Ultraviolet radiation and blue light can both be harmful to the eyes, causing damage over years of sun exposure.
    • Sunglasses can also protect facial skin from forming "crow’s feet," which are those little lines you get by your eyes from squinting too much.
  • 3. Introduction
    • How can you determine the quality of sunglasses? How do you tell a high-quality pair from a low-quality pair?
    • I'll give you a hint: it's not always about the price.
    • And here is another piece of advice: low-quality sunglasses typically do not offer much protection.
    • The basic parts of a pair of sunglasses are the frame, the bridge and the lenses. All can vary with the quality of the sunglasses.
  • 4. Lenses
    • Lenses have the most options, since they can vary by material, color, size, shape, and more.
    • Plastic lenses are lighter but less scratch resistant, while glass lenses offer better optical clarity and scratch resistance, but they are heavier.
    • In high-quality sunglasses, look for colors that will not distort the colors of the real world, unless that is what you are going for.
      • Colors like gray and green will maintain a neutral color balance, while brown will distort colors a little, but give you better contrast.
      • Orange and yellow lenses are said to provide the best contrast, but distort colors more.
      • Blue and purple lenses are mostly useless for anything other than cosmetic reasons.
      • This is a choice, based on the activity you are pursuing. Sometimes you will want to give up some color for the increased contrast.
  • 5. Frames
    • In frames, you can find a variety of materials, all of which could be high or low quality.
    • Frames may be made of metal, nylon, plastic, and other materials as well.
      • If your sunglasses will be worn during strenuous activities, you may want to opt for nylon frames because these tend to keep their shape best.
      • Conversely, metal will bend and plastic could break under stressful conditions.
    • Higher-quality frames will have springs at the hinge that allow them to open wider than you wear them, giving you less of a chance of breaking them at the hinge.
    • They may also be slightly heavier due to a higher quality in terms of the construction and materials.
  • 6. Nose Bridge
    • The bridge of your sunglasses is where they rest on your nose.
    • This should have some kind of padding to make them comfortable for extended wear.
    • They should also be adjustable to provide the wearer with a better fit.
    • Better fit means that not only are they more comfortable, but they will stay on better.
  • 7. Conclusion
    • When looking for high quality sunglasses, make sure they meet all of your needs and requirements.
    • Look for quality workmanship standards, and quality materials in the lenses, bridge and frame.
    • Price is not always an indicator, especially where name brands are involved.
    • Try on as many as you can, and find a pair that will be comfortable and functional for a long time.
