Hello sunshine, goodbye glare. Experience maximum clarity and full protection for your eyes this summer. Prescription sunglasses open a world of possibilities for glasses wearers, and can be claimed with optical extras. Enjoy the outdoors this summer with superior clarity and essential protection from damaging UV and glare with sunglasses to use all year round under the Australian sun. Not to mention you’ll look great.
Choosing the right pair of sunglasses is a little more complicated than finding the ones that best suit your style. Our first priority should always be finding the pair that offers the right protection for our eyes.
Do The Sunglasses Offer UV Protection?
UV protection is absolutely the most important feature of any pair of sunglasses. When you’re looking for a pair, we’ll make sure they block at least 99 percent of UVA and UVB rays. Also consider getting sunglasses with large lenses that offer more coverage and protection for your eyes.
Go Polarised For Glare Elimination
A lot of the time, it isn’t just the direct light from the sun but the glare off reflective objects that causes us the most trouble when we’re outside. Car windshields and the surface of water, the beach and roads are particularly big culprits. Luckily, modern sunglasses have that covered with polarised lenses.
Polarised lenses filter out light waves coming in at certain angles, which gets rid of the glare. They’re an especially good option for fishermen, because no glare means you can see what’s under the surface of the water!
Tailor Your Lens Colour To Your Outdoor Activities
Depending on what your favourite outdoor activities are, you may actually benefit from different lens colours in your sunglasses. Yellow or orange lenses filter out blue light, which will sharpen your focus for cycling, shooting, handball, racquetball, tennis, and even winter sports like skiing and snowboarding.
Amber or rose-tinted sunglasses increase contrast on a bright day, so they help for water sports. Dark amber, copper, or brown lenses block a lot of blue light and help increase contrast and visual acuity, which is helpful for things like baseball, fishing and golf. And no matter what you like doing outside, an anti-reflective coating will help reduce a lot of glare.
