How to Buy the Best Sunglasses

  2. 2. Important Questions to Ask • What type of lens should I choose? • What type of material is the lens made from? • What color do I want the lens to be? • Do they provide protection from UV radiation? • What kind of frame do I want? • What is the material used in the frame? • Where will I wear my sunglasses the most? • How do my sunglasses fit?
  3. 3. Glass Lenses • Glass is one of the most common materials for sunglasses because it is scratch resistant. The downside, however, is that it can be more costly and heavier to wear.
  4. 4. Polycarbonate Lenses • Although they aren’t completely scratch resistant, polycarbonate lenses are a great choice for sunglasses if you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to the glass lens. They are also beneficial because they are of a lighter weight than the glass lenses.
  5. 5. NXT Polyurethane Lenses • NXT Polyurethane is perhaps the best material to choose when it comes to sunglass lens. This material allows for high visibility, resistance to scratches, and they are also very light weight. Unfortunately these are not the most cost efficient sunglasses, but many would agree they are well worth the steep price.
  6. 6. Acrylic Lenses • Acrylic lenses are perhaps the cheapest sunglass lenses available. However, they do not provide as much durability as more expensive lenses do. These are meant for individuals who just need a pair of sunglasses to get by with or those who do not plan on wearing their sunglasses often.
  7. 7. Brown, Gray, and Green Lenses • When choosing the color of your sunglass lenses it is important to consider where you will where them and for what. Brow, gray, or green lenses are ideal for hiking, skateboarding, biking, wakeboarding, and other outdoor activities. This is because they block out the brightness of the sun without distorting color.
  8. 8. Yellow and Rose Tinted Lenses • If you plan on participating in winter sports such as snowboarding or skiing, you may want to choose a yellow or rose tinted lens. These colors help to enhance contours where there is minimal light.
  9. 9. Mirrored Lenses • Be cautious of choosing mirrored lens sunglasses. While they do a good job of deflecting sun light, they can cause problems by making things appear darker than they actually are. Instead of choosing mirrored lens sunglasses you might be better off with polarized lenses.
  10. 10. UV Ray Protection • Nearly all sunglasses come with lenses that are equipped with UV Ray protection. This is essential because it protects your eyes from sun damage. The higher the level of UV Ray protection, the better.
  11. 11. Metal Frames • Metal is one of the most common materials to use for sunglass frames. This is because it is extremely easy to adjust and allows for high visibility. While these sunglasses are often a bit on the pricey side, they do not offer much durability. These are not recommended for extended outdoor wear.
  12. 12. Nylon Frames • Nylon may not be the most comfortable material for your sunglass frames, but they are still very beneficial for outdoor wear. They are very durable even in harsh conditions. Nylon is also a very light weight material.
  13. 13. How Should My Sunglasses Fit? • For the best fit, sunglasses should fit tightly around your ears and nose without pinching your skin. They should not brush up against your eyelashes or fall from your face. Opt for a lightweight pair of sunglasses for maximum comfort.
