Last week I was out in the Sun for a whole day. In the night I got terrible headache. Reason? I forgot to wear my pair of Sunglasses. Now I am so used to wearing them, I get headache without them. Sunglasses not only offer you comfort but also protect the eyes from the ultraviolet rays.
First time I bought Sunglasses, also known as Goggles, I was just ten. Now there are special Sunglasses available for everyone from young kids to grandparents. These Sunglasses not only provide health benefits to the exposed cornea but also give a cool look to the person wearing them.
When Arnold Schwarzenegger wore the certain type of Sunglasses, every other kid started wearing the same. Everybody wanted to look like the Terminator. It was the same with Ray Ban. It was really surprising to see how many people were wearing them on a busy street. Nowadays there are so many varieties of Sunglasses are available from designer Sunglasses to cheap use and throw types. These come in various sizes and shapes. Some designs are available with metal frames while other come with molded plastic frames.
The movie stars are not the only people who make the Sunglasses popular. Sportsmen also are responsible for making Sunglasses popular. Next time when you will watch golf or baseball just count how many players are wearing Sunglasses.
There are Sunglasses available for every activity be it fishing or skiing. One needs Sunglasses while riding a motorbike. You name the activity and there will be a special kind of Sunglasses available. There are men’s Sunglasses and there are women’s Sunglasses.
Polarized lenses filter light reflected from horizontal surfaces due to which one feels very comfortable when one is out there playing sports or driving a car. When you want to buy Sunglasses always try to buy Sunglasses with polarized lenses as they reduce the glare. Make sure that lenses are dark enough to allow comfort but not so dark that they reduce your vision.
When you are out and facing intense glare of light bouncing off from the water or the snow you should were Sunglasses that block blue light rays. Slightly dark Sunglasses with a slightly green or brown tint will filter out the blue light rays.
Photochromatic lenses become darker as the intensity of ultraviolet light increases. That’s why they are lighter when indoors. If you want to use photochromatic Sunglasses while driving then choose the fairly dark ones.
Mirror lenses reflect most of the light instead of absorbing it. But these lenses get scratched easily. So if you want to buy Sunglasses with mirror lenses buy the ones which have anti scratching coating on them.
Nowadays most of the Sunglasses come with the plastic lenses. These are tougher and more durable than the glass lenses and less likely to shatter. So if you buy the Sunglasses with plastic lenses, buy the lenses which have scratch resistant coating.
