List of things to look for
Many people choose sunglasses for fashion or comfort and overlook the key role that shades play. It is, in reality, less about a fashionable pair and a lot more about the quality of the lenses. Make sure you run through this basic check list – scratch-proof and shatter-resistant polycarbonate lenses with anti-reflective coating to prevent distracting reflections when outdoors, polarized lenses to reduce glare and for UV protection and a Hydrophobic coating if they’re for beachwear.
Last but not least, keep them dirt proof and dustproof in a protective case when not in use. With these points in mind, sunglasses-wearing pleasure can be elongated and enjoyed.
