What types of sunglasses do we offer?

With so many options out there, how do you choose the perfect type to suit your lifestyle?
Before we dive into some of the main types of sunglasses, it’s worth noting that the mere ‘types’ of sunglasses lenses do not determine their UV protection capabilities. To ensure you’re protected from harmful UV rays, look for sunglasses with UV treatment labels that block 100% of UV rays (UV 400).

Tinted sunglasses

With a single-color tint across the lens, tinted sunglasses are all about reducing light intensity without compromising style.
These come in a wide range of hues and tint intensity, allowing you to express your personality while keeping your eyes comfortable. Remember, though, that the tint doesn’t reduce glare, so you may want to consider other options if glare is a concern for you.

Gradient sunglasses

For those who want to make a fashion statement, gradient sunglasses are the way to go.
With a two-tone tint that fades from top to bottom, they add a touch of sophistication to any outfit. These shades are perfect for reducing light intensity, but keep in mind that they don’t reduce glare either.

Mirrored sunglasses

If you’re looking for a bold and glamorous look, mirrored sunglasses are a great go-to option that greatly reduces the amount of light that can enter your eye.
These are less of a tint, per se, and more of a coating. With their thin metallic reflective layer on the outside of the lenses, mirrored sunglasses not only shield your eyes from intense light but also offer maximum privacy, since the wearer’s eyes won’t be visible from the outside. Just keep in mind that the mirrored coating doesn’t reduce glare as effective as polarized sunglasses.

Polarized sunglasses

When it comes to reducing both light intensity and glare, polarized sunglasses take the lead.
With a special coating that blocks horizontally polarized light, they provide unparalleled clarity and comfort. For outdoor enthusiasts, these sunglasses are a must-have for driving, water sports, and snowy environments. However, it’s worth noting that polarized lenses may affect the visibility of images on certain digital screens.

What are the various sunglass categories?

If you’ve been doing any research into buying sunglasses online, you may have come across descriptions of sunglass category. For example, you may have seen that a pair of sunglasses are ‘category 4’. Well – what on earth does that mean?
Let’s delve into each category and unravel their unique characteristics:

Category 1: Subtle coloration, gentle protection

Category 1 lenses feature a slightly noticeable tint, offering mild relief from sunlight. Although not suitable for everyday use, they are a popular choice in sunny locations or for individuals seeking a touch of style with gentle protection.

Category 2: The perfect balance

Sitting between dark spectacle lenses and lighter sunglasses lenses, category 2 lenses strike the ideal balance. With prominent coloration and the ability to absorb less than half of sunlight, they are suitable for moderately bright or overcast days.

Category 3: Embrace everyday adventure

Category 3 lenses are your go-to for everyday recreational activities. Absorbing around two-thirds of visible light, they provide ample protection for sports, driving, and enjoying a sunny day at the beach. Our sunglasses proudly fall under category 3.

Category 4: Intense sun shielding

Stepping into the realm of extreme exposure, category 4 lenses are designed for high-altitude mountaineering and extreme scenarios. With their ability to absorb a significant amount of visible light, they offer exceptional, maximum protection. However, note that category 4 lenses are often illegal for some activities – like driving – due to their level of darkness!

Frequently asked questions

Are polarized or non-polarized sunglasses better?

It all boils down to your lifestyle and the activities you plan to wear them for. Polarized sunglasses are specially designed to reduce glare from reflective surfaces such as water or snow, making them ideal for outdoor activities and driving. They provide enhanced visual clarity and are especially beneficial for those who spend a lot of time in bright environments. Non-polarized sunglasses also offer UV protection, but don’t cut out glare. But, both polarized and non-polarized sunglasses protect your eyes, and present great choices for daily use.

Which sunglasses are best for UV protection?

To ensure proper UV protection, look for sunglasses with labels that state they offer UV 400 – which blocks out nearly 100% of UV rays. These sunglasses effectively shield your eyes from both UVA and UVB rays, safeguarding them against potential damage. Remember that the darkness of the lens does not necessarily correlate with UV protection, so always check for the appropriate UV labelling when selecting sunglasses.

How do I choose sunglasses for my face shape?

When choosing sunglasses for your face shape, consider finding a style that complements your facial features. For a round face, angular or rectangular frames can add definition. Square faces can benefit from round or oval frames to soften strong jawlines. Oval faces have the advantage of versatility, as they can suit various frame shapes. Those with heart-shaped faces may opt for aviators or cat-eye styles, while individuals with a diamond-shaped face may find rimless or oval frames flattering. Experiment with different shapes and sizes to find the perfect match for your face shape and personal style.

Which lens color is optimal for sunglasses?

Lens color can affect how you perceive and interpret colors, as well as how much light reaches your eyes. Generally, neutral colors like gray or brown lenses provide true color perception and are versatile for everyday wear. Amber or yellow lenses enhance contrast and depth perception, making them suitable for activities like driving or sports. Mirrored lenses reduce glare and offer a trendy, reflective look. Ultimately, choose a lens color that fits your preferences and specific needs for different lighting conditions and activities.

Do larger sunglasses offer superior protection?

The size of sunglasses does not necessarily determine their level of UV protection. UV protection is primarily determined by the lens material and coatings. However, larger sunglasses with wraparound designs or wider coverage can provide additional protection by reducing peripheral light and blocking UV rays from entering through the sides. They may also offer some shielding against wind and debris. Remember to ensure that the sunglasses you choose offer proper UV protection and fit well on your face to maximize both protection and style!

Which sunglasses are most suitable for driving?

When it comes to driving, we’d recommend sunglasses with polarized lenses since these can significantly help reduce glare from the road, windshield, and other reflective surfaces. All this helps improve visibility and safety while driving. Make sure your glasses offer UV protection as well, so that your eyes are protected from longer exposure to sunlight while driving. Additionally, choose a frame style that provides a comfortable fit and doesn’t obstruct your field of view. Safety first!
