Eye for an eye – sunglasses the partial protector.

I just could not think of a headline to put for my article as whatever headliner came to my mind was already written by someone else. So I came up with my own original headline that suits my article. Coming to the headline; yes it is remarkably true; sunglasses are the partial protector of your eyes. If you want to have exceptionally beautiful and healthy eyes without looking aged and wrinkled up around your eye area, sunglasses definitely should be your 1st choice.  Sunglasses come into maximum use in the summers when the UV radiation is at the highest and can slowly damage your eyes. Even it is handy to have one set of sunglasses while participating in any kind of snow sports, space activities, cycling, or when near any water body such as the beach or lake. Sunglasses prevent one from contracting certain eye diseases that are caused by ultra violet rays and dangerous to one’s eyes.  It is really a difficult task to choose a sunglass that looks good on you and having all the necessary protection layers as well.  I choose my sunglass in the following basic ways: –

  • Firstly I make sure my blessed long eyelashes do not touch the frame.
  • The frame should not hurt the nose and ears, so look out for a comfortable frame that fits just right on your face.
  • I look out for sunglasses that are comfortable, long lasting and give a high quality show. I generally choose a sunglass which has large lenses, as it prevents extra stray light filtering from the sides.
  • It is a must for all to go for sunglasses that have high optical clarity, scratch proof resistance and be of a lightweight and flexible quality.
  • Good quality rubber nosepieces and earpieces can minimize the sunglasses falling down your face during hot climates.

Recently, I went to buy a pair of sunglasses and the sales assistant confused me by asking what color lenses did I prefer. I was a little dazed and told him to show me a sample of all the colors. There were grey, red, brown, yellow, copper and more such shades to choose from.  Each of the colors had a specific function to perform. The grey, brown and yellow color lenses are the most commonly used. Other colors such as red, blue and green are good for certain sport activities. It is highly recommended for all to grab their sunglasses today.
