May 4, 2018 at 5:26 pm | How to Choose the Perfect Sunglasses This Spring

You’re in the cosmetic aisle and stumble upon a rack of sunglasses. You’re trying them on one by one but still are not sure which one you should choose. Sunglasses should be fun and stylish, but they offer other benefits as well. As an eye care center in Wayne, PA, Integrity Eye Associates is an expert on eyeglasses—so here are a couple of things to consider when trying to find the ideal pair of shades for the springtime!

Protection

Many sunglasses offer protection from the harmful rays of the sun. However, not all sunglasses are created equal with some offering more UV light protection than others. This is significant because radiation is known to cause severe damage to the skin and eyes. UVA is the ultraviolet A rays emitted from the sun and UVB are the ultraviolet B rays emitted from the sun. When browsing sunglasses for protection, seek shades that offer to block at least 99% UVB Rays and about 95% UVA rays. Additionally, check to see how much your sunglasses are covering your face. The size of the frames can indicate how much sun will be let through the glasses. For more protection, polarized glasses are also an option as they help to reduce glare. Many cosmetic glasses do not offer sun protection. Therefore, you should shop at a reliable sunglasses retailer if protection is what you seek.

Style

Sunglasses can reflect your style and serve as a great addition to your outfit as well. A few other things you should consider when deciding on a pair of sunglasses are the size and the fit. Sunglasses come in many different colors and shapes. Some of the most popular styles of sunglasses this season are:

  • Oversized Glasses
  • Cat eye Sunglasses
  • Mirrored Sunglasses
  • Vintage Round Glasses

Additionally, to find the perfect style, shop for shades that suit your face shape and your skin tone. For instance, if you have a round face, a frame with square or rectangular features will help to enhance your features. Likewise, for those with square-shaped faces, an oval or round pair of sunglasses frame the face well. The lens color is also very important because each color provides a different enhancement. For example, brown lenses are a contrast color. This color is great for golfers because it helps their putting by allowing them to see the lay of the greens easily. Gray is great for people who are extremely light sensitive because it dulls the brightness of the sun the most.  Be sure to ask what lens color would be best for your needs.

Material

Last, but certainly not least, the material of the sunglasses is something that should be thought about before you make a purchase. Some sunglasses are scratch resistant—which is ideal for regular use—and tend to be more durable. If you want glasses that will last longer, a glass or resin material may be your best bet. On the other hand, acrylic sunglasses are also an affordable option.

When shopping for sunglasses, choose a reliable store with a selection of sunglasses in various styles with added protection. Integrity Eye Associates offers a variety of sunglasses as well as designer frames in Paoli, PA. To view our inventory, just stop in today!
