Sunglasses…

comment(s)

Sunglasses can instantly add a touch of glamor, while at the same time it protects your eyes from the sun’s intense glare. Driving around in the middle of the day, for instance, is much easier (and much cooler) with a pair of shades…

So, how do you pick sunglasses that would suit you best? Easy…

1

First of all, you’ll want a pair of sunglasses that matchesthe shape of your face. There are, of course, no hard rules on this, but the following guideline usually works well:
- Heart-shaped face (wide forehead, narrow jaw): cat-eye frames…
- Oval-shaped face (narrow forehead and jaw): just about any style, really…
- Round-shaped face (equal width and length): angular frames…
- Square-shaped face (broad forehead, square chin): round frames…

Lense color is also important, but probably not the way you think: Dark lenses aren’t necessarily better, since the coating that blocks UV radiation is clear. However, yellow or rose tinted lenses can distort colors—including the color of traffic lights. Gray, green, and brown lenses are the best options.

Speaking of UV rays, a good pair of sunglasses (not necessarily expensive) will offer 99 to 100 percent UV protection. Always make sure that your sunglasses you pick meet this criterion.

Polarized sunglasses can eliminate glare from every angle—that’s why they can really help you maintain visual acuity when driving during sunny weather. Now, some of you have probably heard about how polarized glasses help you “see through fog”… this is of course false. However, fog can produce extra glare by reflecting sunlight. So, if you’re driving when it’s foggy and sunny, polarized sunglasses helps a lot.

Oh, and naturally, polarized sunglasses are also perfect for trips to the beach… :)
